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 2011-86, New Terms: Tolerance

Another word that you thought you knew is “tolerance.”  What tolerance used to mean to people who had graduated from kindergarten was a patience and kindness you expressed toward people that you really disagreed with or did not like.  On a bus you tolerated a smelly body.  In a church you tolerated someone who sang off key.  In politics you tolerate people who vote for the other guy.  In families you tolerate your new son in law.

No more.  Since tolerance is now the meaning of “respect,” it is only proper that your educational establishment have redefined “tolerance.”  Now it means “respect.”  Get it?  Now you are expected to look up to people that don’t deserve it.  It again goes back to the foundational ideas of multi-culturalism.

Of course tolerance only goes so far.  You are not supposed to tolerate anyone who has strong Christian beliefs.  They are haters.  You are not supposed to tolerate anyone who believes in traditional ideas of morality.  They are bigots.  You are not to tolerate anyone who demands evidence of global warming.  They are stupid.  In fact, anyone who seriously disagrees with your post-modern, pagan way of looking at the world is not to be tolerated.

Of course, this way of thinking is not to be tolerated.
