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 2023-181: That Time Again

The Fourth is coming.  One of the things that we should all do at this point is find a copy of the Declaration of Independence and read it over.  I am in that process.  Pay special attention after you get past the opening paragraphs that we all know.  If you read carefully and pay attention you will see parallels between what King George III was doing and what our current governments are doing.

Notice how I worded that.  I did not say Joe Biden.  As I was reading through the document I kept coming across the word “he”.  To be honest, Joe Biden probably doesn’t even know what kind of ice cream he likes.  There is a mysterious “he” that is hiding in the wings.  It could be a committee or cabal that has grabbed the reigns and is careening into the future with reckless abandon.  Their favorite sound is “thump, thump” as they drive over us and our liberty.

Some of the issues in the Declaration are not on our radar.  As far as I know the Feds are not trying to board soldiers in our homes.  They are messing with us in other ways.

Read it and think.  Do it before you put the hot dogs on or open the potato chips.
