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 2011-8, Key Scriptures: John 3:16

One of the most memorized verses in the Bible is John 3:16,
(John 3:16 KJV)  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
If you have ever seen a Gideon Bible in a motel room or passed out at schools, they have this verse in the front of each volume in dozens of languages.  They consider it that important.

We should also consider it important because it is the Gospel in a nutshell.  God loves us.  He sent Jesus.  If you believe in Jesus you will avoid Hell and gain Heaven.  Of course there is more to learn, that is what the Bible is all about, but if you know that much you can join God’s family.
