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 2011-90, Alistair Begg, Arminian

Recently I was listening to Alistair Begg.  I did not notice what sermon it was but in the middle of his comments he threw this in, “God is not only able to redeem us out of the stuff, but He is able to keep us from that stuff.”  That sounds like being able to live in victory over sin to me.  I totally agree with the statement, and its implications.  The problem is that it does not fit well with the Calvinist view of the Christian walk.  If you must sin every day in word, thought and deed, how is God going to “keep us from that stuff?” 

I am glad to see that Alistair is coming around.

Comments are welcome. Feel free to agree or disagree but keep it clean, courteous and short. I heard some shorthand on a podcast: TLDR, Too long, didn't read.
