Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

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 2023-025: Where Is Sherlock When You Need Him?

People are following the results of a nationwide program to force untested “vaccines” on everyone in the country.  The people fall into various categories.

You have the true believers.  These are the ones who refuse to see obvious correlations, deny facts and go for another stab.  If it were not sad it would be amusing to watch the list of people who have proclaimed the foolishness of people rejecting the vaccine and dropping dead the next day.  

At the other extreme are those who see a real problem.  They understand that there are reasons not to rush an unvetted inoculation into use.  They remember tragedies of the past.  They are also capable of looking at numbers and seeing that the danger was vastly overblown.  They see the political manipulation and continue to resist the jab.  

In the middle you have the majority who stumble along and either don’t pay attention to the news or only watch the legacy media.  They get the injections and wonder why they feel so bad afterward.  They forget the lies told to them yesterday by the government and media.  

In this light I came across this quotation in the book Bowling Alone:

“When seeking to solve a serial crime (or, for that matter, to understand a public health epidemic) investigators typically look for common features among the victims - were they all blondes, or seafood aficionados, or left-handed?”  p. 184
I might point out that “public health” and “epidemic” were mentioned by him in 2000, not by me.  At the same time you notice that the responsible parties are doing no looking for “common features among the victims.”  You can read in vain to find out if young athletes dropping dead were vaccinated or not.  I don’t think what they had in common was being blond, eating shrimp or being left-handed.

But what do I know?
