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 2011-89, Mark Driscoll, Arminian

I recently listened to a sermon by Marc Discoll.  I believe it was called “The Call to Discipleship.”  I found myself agreeing with much of what he had to say.  Talking about discipleship, he waxed eloquent on the necessity of obedience.  It is a topic that needs to be repeated frequently.  What I find amusing is that someone who mocks the Arminians as much as Driscoll would fail to realize the paradox of emphasizing obedience when irresistible grace, unconditional election and perseverance of the saints are all beacons of his theology.  Could it be that in his heart Marc Driscoll understands that the teachings of Calvinism are not supported by the reading of the entire Bible?
