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 2023-274: Measure the Response Carefully

The barbaric behavior of Hamas on unarmed men, women, children and infants has brought an amazing response.  I am not talking about the celebrations in Muslim countries.  We have seen it before.  We will see it again.  That is to be expected.  I am not even talking about the demonstrations in Europe.  Most of those are made up of Muslim immigrants who are part of the demographic jihad of Islam.  The amazing response is in the United States.  College campuses are erupting with support for the brutality of Hamas.  Everywhere you look you see people rejoicing that babies heads were torn off and women were raped and murdered.  These “people” seem to feel that any response by Israel is the evil event.

Amazing, but maybe not if you have been following the script.  Burning down cities has been labeled “peaceful protest”.  At the same time peaceful Trump supporters are in jail for the flagrant insurrection of trespass and people are locked up for simply being in the neighborhood.  With those clear abuses of power, don’t be surprised if the woke students and their gurus act like mindless zombies.  And of course the left hates Jews.  The Jews seem to have an advanced case of Stockholm Syndrome.  

But this hatred may be more of a blessing than a curse.

Perhaps the idea that we are getting more partisan and more divided is a blessing instead of a curse. I think that this division might help us to realize what is right and what is wrong and make us think.  It could be a wake up call.  Perhaps we should be asking for more division and less unity nonsense.  

The division we are looking at now is much more clear than the political sideshows.  The fools that are running around calling for the murder of all Jews are very clear on where they stand.  They are evil.  I don’t care if they are young and naive.  I don’t care if they are elderly and getting sucked into the moment.  Hamas acted in a way that demands no forgiveness.  One reason that it demands no forgiveness is the clear voice they speak with:  Israel must be destroyed.  All Jews must die.  They claim they will keep on until the job is done.  You cannot forgive someone as they slit your throat.

There is nothing to negotiate.

The sides are clear.

The choice is simple.

How will America respond?

  1. I am heavy-hearted at how much evil is showing up, and not even trying to hide in the shadows any more. God has a lot to say about that in His Word.


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.
