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 2012-37, Discernment Watch: Bias Is at Both Ends

I was reading through the weekend edition of the Washington Times.  I was struck and depressed by how many of the articles pointed out the total lack of integrity among the rich and famous who are running our country.  The way in which they all seem to line their pockets at the tax payers’ expense is depressing.

I also noticed that many times the stealing and embezzlement was not limited to the present administration.  This seems to be an ongoing hobby of these people.  It is so easy for me to look at our President and the criminals he associates with and forget that corruption crosses party lines with impunity. 

I will still express my opinions and seek for truth but this reminds me that I have my biases also.  I often wonder how many times I am totally controlled by preconceived notions that have not been fumigated by the light of day. 

Until we work it out,
And always when in doubt,
Don’t just sit and pout.
Vote the suckers out!
