Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

This blog will be written from an orthodox Christian point of view. There may be some topic that is out of bounds, but at present I don't know what it will be. Politics is a part of life. Theology and philosophy are disciplines that we all participate in even if we don't think so. The Bible has a lot to say about economics. How about self defense? Is war ethical? Think of all the things that someone tells you we should not touch and let's give it a try. Everything that is a part of life should be an expression of worship.

Keep it courteous and be kind to those less blessed than you, but by all means don't worry about agreeing. We learn more when we get backed into a corner.

Opus 2022-286: Headlines: Surprise Party Parting

By now I am sure you have seen a clip about Xi having his predecessor hauled out of the Chinese Communist Party convention.  I keep reading all the voices shocked that he would do such a thing.  To be honest I am not shocked or surprised.  It is the Marxist Model at work.

Read the definitive literature about how communism works.  Read 1984.  Read The Gulag Archipelago.  Arresting, jailing and executing is just another day in the Party to these loyal appratchiks.  This is what all those American socialists have in store for them.  The only question is will it be public like this one, clandestine like Trotsky or totally quiet like it has been for millions.  What was amazing to me were the number who went to their graves happy that they could serve the Party this way.  It won’t make me happy when I am led away to the American Gulag but at least it will give me company.

Remember that the left eats its own.  Today’s socialist hero is tomorrow’s lunch.  We wait to hear if the world has been made a better place.

Choices, like elections, have consequences.
