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 18, What Page Are We On?

Have you ever wondered why people seem so ignorant about basic stuff?  Borrowed money must be paid back.  Being on time is important.  TANSTAAFL (There ain’t no such thing as a free lunch).  The chicken came first because if God had just made an egg, it would not have hatched, and keep in mind it had to be a chicken and a rooster. 

At school I announce several times, “Turn to page 248.”  I point to where it is printed in large letters on the board.  3/4 of the class is on the page and four people have their hands up.  The first one asks, “What page are we on.”  I answer them.  Guess what the second one asks.  And the third one?  The fourth wants to go to the bathroom. 

Then I have the kid who says, “The answer isn’t in the book.”  I tell him yes it is, read the book.  He says he has read the book.  I tell him to read it again.  Finally, I ask him to read the question.  Then I ask him to read the first line of the book.  He gets half way through and stops.  All I hear is “Oh.”

Why are people so ignorant.  In some cases it is because they have not had a chance to learn.  Usually it is because they are lazy.  They are too lazy to read for themselves.  They are too lazy to wear their glasses.  They are too lazy to think.  They are too lazy to even listen.

We make a lot of excuses, but usually it comes down to not wanting to know.  I hear a lot about learning disabilities but the same kids who can’t listen when I give an assignment remember every verbal mistake I have made all year.  The ones who can’t read find every typo I make on a paper I hand out.  The ones who can’t tell time when it comes to getting to class are doing a count down for the bell to ring.

When I am elected king, one of the first things I will do is repeal compulsory education.  I will make it available and encourage people to come but when something is given away free it tends to lose its value.

Will you vote for me to be King?

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.
