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 2023-293: Huzza for Honest Evil

I’m thinking we need to give a shout-out to the honest evils in the world.  Most evil hides under a cloak.  Think of abortion mills murdering uncounted children and claiming they are doing it for the benefit of women’s rights.  Think of all the insiders making a couple of fortunes by milking the totally useless green energy fraud.  Think of the members of congress who claim to have gone to Washington to do the will of the people.  I don’t remember the people saying they want members of congress to become rich while they bleed taxpayers dry.  Not those people.

I’m thinking of how certain groups declare with no mystery what their goal is.  The evil proponents of Islamic Jihad are currently at the top of the list.  They proclaim what they plan to do.  They are very clear about it.  They are very open about genocidal murderer of Jews.  That includes all Jews with no regard for age, sex or civilian status.  As a mild mannered Palestinian I once knew proclaimed with a straight face, “You need to kill them all.  The women have more babies and the babies grow up to be soldiers.”  He was a public school teacher twenty years ago and a genuinely nice guy, except for Jews.  

If you go back to the Marxists, the Communist Manifesto was very clear about all the things it wanted to destroy and do away with.  Topping the list in clear English was the family, religion and private property.  It is double clear because when it was published it was put out in many languages with an official translation by the authors.  Don’t believe me?  Download a copy and read it.  It isn’t long but it is specific.

I believe that also Hitler in Mein Kampf was very clear about destroying everything of the west having to do with Christianity.  God was to be replaced by the state and all humans would either be exterminated or brought into submission to the state.  I have not read Hitler’s book so I can’t speak with authority but you get the idea.

The other side of this coin is the total blindness of the general population and their Elite overlords.  You might consider them part of the disguised agents of evil.  How people of good will could rally against Israel when the slaughter was clear and the Hamas method of using children as human shields is well documented.  Maybe the answer is they are not people of good will.

Again I say, pray like it was necessary.  It is.  And while you have any liberty stand up, speak out and make a difference.  You might try voting but I am not sure that is a lost cause at this point.

  1. I just wish more people would say it. It always amazes me how people can see the obvious and act like it doesn't exist. It brings to mind "The Emperor's New Clothes"

    Grace and peace
