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 2023-135: Should-a-Beens: Killer Vines

I was thinking about Proverbs 31 where it talks about the perfect wife buying a field and planting a vineyard.  My thoughts went to world hunger.

How did I go from a vineyard to world hunger?  The same way that the green vegans go from a field of corn to people starving to death.  The corn is used to feed and fatten cattle instead of feeding people.  Thus, meat eaters are keeping food from the hungry of the world.  Because of that, eating meat is evil and should be done away with.

Why don’t we hear that argument for vineyards?  How many acres are tied up in producing wine and other alcoholic beverages?  Granted, it might be the best use of some marginal land but are you telling me that there is nothing edible that could be grown instead of grapes?  If you have to grow grapes then turn them into raisins instead of intoxicants.  Wine drinkers of the world are starving the poor and needy.  Plow the vines under.  Plant okra or kale.  Maybe focus on bean sprouts.  Drinking is evil and must be done away with.

I guess I have too much leisure time.
