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 2011-33, Dawkins on the King James Version

I came across an interesting quote of Richard Dawkins.  If you are not familiar with the name, then bless you.  He is a professional atheist and advocate of evolution.  It seemed strange that he would be quoted in an article titled “The 400-year reign of the King James Bible” by Mark A. Kellner.  I found it in the Washington Times National Weekly, January 3, 2011, p. 14.

Dawkins is quoted as saying:
“Not to know the King James Bible is to be, in some small way, barbarian.” 
I don’t know why anyone wanted his opinion on this topic, but it is good to know that there is at least one place where I can agree with the man.
