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 2011-311, Ye Shall Be As Gods

There are people who reject God and His teachings.  Others simply try to modify what the Bible teaches to fit their own preferences.  We see this in people from Thomas Jefferson to the drunk on the corner.

Why do people have such a hard time believing in God?  I think it could be summed up in this statement:  “If there is a God, then I am not.”  People reject God because if He exists as He has revealed Himself to be then they cannot rule their own lives.  This is also why people can attend church all their lives and never really become believers.  It would require a surrender that they are not willing to give.

  1. I've always said that atheists simply can't conceive anything greater than themselves. I guess our thinking is similar on this matter.

  2. Great minds run in the same channels, at least as long as they are molded by the same Book. Submission is also hard.

    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.
