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 2011-273, House Cleaning and Senate Sanitation

Most people have seen the billboard of George Bush waving and smiling and asking, “Miss me yet?”  What if the election had gone a different way.  Would we be better off with Hillary? 

Before you answer, ask yourself if her goals would have been any different.  She might nit pick but I don’t see her regretting Obamacare except that she wanted it to be called Hillarycare.  And it was.  But then it didn’t pass.

Think about it.  She might have been more competent and seen the big picture.  She might have known how to avoid alienating so many people.  She might have been even more successful than Obama and things would be worse. 

Remember when Bill Clinton was elected and conservatives were in despair?  What happened?  Two years later there was a major tide in the other direction.  We don’t have a customer service department where we can return the official elected.  We are not a parliamentary system.  We need to wait two or four years and then show a little discernment.

God has a sense of humor.  He knows that we got what a majority of us wanted.  It is time to stop laughing and get serious.

So keep your chin up.  Keep politicking.  More important, keep praying.  If you study the history of the kingdom of Judah, they went through cycles of disobedience and suffering followed by revival and strength.  Get your own house in order and next year we can work on the House of Representatives, the White House and the Senate’s house.  Let’s at least be a people who learn from our mistakes.

  1. To true, we get the government we deserve.

  2. George, Yes and preach it again until the choir starts to listen.

    Phillip, But how come I can't get the government I deserve? Or is this a part of everyone being a sinner?

    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.
