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 2012-58, Discernment Watch: When Is Islam Islam?

There is an area of blindness in the PC Media that you need to be aware of, and yes, I know that blindness and PC Media is redundant.  If you are paying any attention you know that people who are involved in the MSM have tin ears in areas of religion.  One of the areas they are either ignorant or lying is in their use of the term “Islam.” 

Often when they talk about Islam they are really talking about the Nation of Islam.  The two have as much in common as Orthodox Christianity has with the Jehovah’s Witnesses.  They are also totally different.  Islam is a world religion that embraces people of all races and ethnic identifications.  The Nation of Islam is a racist organization that demonizes white people.  You can be any color and be a Muslim.  You must be black to be a member of the Nation of Islam.

When you read in the media about how a Muslim has done something or said something remember that the same media will label Mitt Romney a Christian.  He may be a fine fellow.  He may be a lot of nice and upright things but he is a Mormon, not a Christian. 

If the MSM will not be discerning and ask the questions, you should.

Happy thinking.
