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 2011-248, Headlines: What Is a Jihad Social Club?

I followed a link from the Drudge Report about the fighting in Israel.  In reading  I came across this paragraph found HERE.
"The IDF responded in force early Thursday, killing two Palestinians and wounding at least 20 in an airstrike on what the army said was an arms depot in the northern Gaza Strip. Earlier, Palestinian sources said the site hit in the strike was an Islamic Jihad social club."
My guess is that we have a lesson in synonyms here.  It would seem that an arms depot and an Islamic Jihad Social Club are the same thing.  Maybe a sign on the door says, “Rockets R Us.”  Their motto could be “bring us your tired, downtrodden and poor rockets, yearning to be set free.”

Is anybody listening or are all heads in the sand?

  1. Most folks are so used to accepting spin as truth that they probably believed everything the "peace-loving" muslims said.

  2. My Pumice Dictionary of the Once-English Language defines "spin" as "lie."

    Grace and peace


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.
