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 2011-106, Christian Luck, an Oxymoron

For a long time I have been trying to avoid the use of the word "luck" in relation to my life.  Luck has the idea of chance and randomness that I don’t think is applicable in the life of a Christian.  I came across this statement by John Wesley in his Journals, dated July 6, 1781:
“So far as fortune or chance governs the world, God has no place in it.”
We should talk about being blessed, not lucky.  God is sovereign.
