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 2023-074: Circle Shoot

I was thinking of giving you a list of all the people I disagree with on politics and theology.  It would have two sections.  The first would be those I lump in the “Liberal” camp.  To be honest it would be hard to find anything I agree with them on.  I am not sure they even understand that you should not eat yellow snow.  It used to be you could assume about patriotism, child pornography, general integrity and things like that, but those have all been thrown out the window.

The second list would be those in the more traditional camp.  The problem here is that everyone who is left would be on the list because I have yet to find anyone that I don’t have disagreements with.  So sue me.  I personally think that is healthy.  I like to do my own thinking.  I think that courteous and respectful knock-down dragged out arguments are scintillating.  It also reminds me that we need to stop standing in a circle and shooting.  We need to stop attacking our own.  The enemy is not the guy who has a well known website and a lot of opinions.  The enemy is the guy who wants to destroy America.

It would help is we remembered that.

Maybe I should read this again to myself, out loud.

  1. Back in the late '60s and early '70s most would have tagged me as liberal. Here in the latest iteration of the roaring '20s most would consider me a cast-iron conservative. Truth is, I haven't changed much. Society (I use the term loosely) has changed, mostly when and where it benefits the power-brokers the most.

    1. I am old enough to remember when there were Democrats who were patriotic. I also hear more and more people repeating what I first heard from Dennis Prager, "I didn't leave the Democrat party, the Democrat party left me." I guess you are in good company. I am often feeling that way about the Republicans.

      Grace and peace


Comments are welcome. Feel free to agree or disagree but keep it clean, courteous and short. I heard some shorthand on a podcast: TLDR, Too long, didn't read.
