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 2023-031: 491

It is awesome to be alive when a major milestone is reached in history.  I say this based on two verses from the Bible.

First we have the words of Jesus,

(Mat 5:39 KJV)  But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.
Christians in America have been doing a lot of this.  Even non-believers who are traditional live like they believe it.  We have been the Mr. Nice Guy that every punk and thug wants the world to be full of.

Turn forward a few chapters.  Jesus is having a conversation with Peter, who asks,
(Mat 18:21 KJV)  Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?
I am sure that Peter thought he was being generous but Jesus had news for him,
(Mat 18:22 KJV)  Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.
Now I have an announcement to make.  I think we have reached 491.  If my math is good, that is one more than seven times seventy.  The thugs, punks and Progressives* (but I repeat myself) of the country have been giggling all the way to the club house.  They love to share the stories and plan new adventures.  The time has arrived.

We need to start stomping on camel noses and maybe turning a few into camel burgers.  It is time to stop being Mr. Nice Guy.  I would say we would still be good Boy Scouts but the Scouts have gone the way of the woke.  Let’s just say that we will still be all those qualities mentioned in the oath.  At the same time we need to hire lawyers and sue the sox off them.  We need to stop drawing lines in the sand and taking a step back.  We need to drive a stake into the concrete and tie ourselves to it.

Be nice.  Be courteous.  Leave your guns in the safe.  Stop backing down.  Today you defend your right to free speech.  If we don’t stand up it will be the character of our children.

  1. Don't ever anger a man of God; he has connections.

  2. But is he grounded?

    Grace and peace
