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 2011-351, Discernment Watch: Moral, not Social

I am not sure if I have written about this before.  If I have, it bears repeating.  Often when we read or listen we hear the cultural gurus talking about the “social conservatives.”  This is another example of the talking heads redefining things to suit their desires instead of reality.  We are not social conservatives, we are moral conservatives.  We are not talking about social issues, but moral issues.

Abortion is a moral issue.  Inconsiderate use of cell phones is a social issue.  Homosexuality is a moral issue.  Tax breaks for the married is a social issue.  Drunk driving is a moral issue.  Not washing your car is a social issue.  There is a difference.  Don’t get it confused.

We need to start speaking up instead of letting people get away with watering down truth.
