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 2011-62, Gout Is Still a Problem?

I look through the ads that come in the junk mail.  I am looking for the offer I can’t refuse.  It is a blessing that the offer never seems to come.  I also look at how the models are dressed and coifed to see what the latest styles are.

I noticed in one folder that there were at least two cures offered for the gout.  I thought this was a condition of the past.  It has always been associated with wealthy people who ate rich foods and did little exercise.  In the past that was only the upper classes.  Today I guess it could effect most Americans.  It seems to be gaining a “foot hold” again, if you will excuse the expression.

The cause is still the same.  For most people the cure is still the same.  I am sure there are exceptions but it would seem that this is a moral problem for most people.  This would be a good indication that prayer and fasting might be in order.  I would suggest that the physical gout is often a result of spiritual gout, again making allowance for other causes.
