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 2011-282, Spiritual Gifts: Exhortation Revisited

One of the great blessings of the internet and blogs is that we can grow spiritually as well as intellectually.  The interaction provided by the comment section allows us to be rebuked and corrected.  It allows the gift of exhortation to be practiced in full voice. 

It could be that you have the spiritual gift of exhortation.  Some of you encourage.  Some rebuke.  Some correct.  These are all expressions of exhortation. 

So get out there and leave comments.  When you read something verging on heresy, let the author know that you are watching and that the Holy Spirit is telling you there are issues.  If someone takes an unpopular position that is right, let the author know you support him.  The body of Christ can extend over the internet.

Perhaps one of the modern “translations” will label the gift of exhortation as “commentator” or “blogger” or even “troll.”

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.
