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 2013-27: Discernment Watch: Be Careful Who Calls You

Recently one of the little old ladies at church came up and asked me if I knew who had called her from Rome.  I suggested the Pope, and she laughed and said, “No, Bennie Hinn.”  She assured me that  he did not call for money, just to tell her that she was really blessed and it was going to be a great year.  She seemed to take it seriously.  She actually seemed to have the idea that he had singled her out for a personal call.  Since I wanted to be kind I did not ask many questions like, “Was this a live call or a recorded message?” 

This is a lady who had taught pharmacology at the college level.  She was educated, well known in her day and successful.  She really believes in this nonsense.

People are so gullible.

  1. In her case that is part of the kindness but I meet people who don't have that excuse.

    It makes me wonder what I am doing that causes people to shake their heads and talk about senior moments.

    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.
