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 2013-36: Eden Diet

How was eating different in the Garden of Eden?  Did Adam and Eve need to worry about getting fat?  Were they concerned about high cholesterol?  Was blood pressure an issue?  What changes did sin bring to the food and to how our bodies respond?

Did you need to crack the shells on nuts?  Did the nutmeats need protection?  Was fruit seasonal or did the trees produce constantly?  Was there so much variety that you didn’t notice no apples were available?  Since death had not come to the world, did fruit rot?  Were vegetables part of the diet? 

Vegans would have liked it.  You can make a good case for no meat before Noah exited the ark.  What was it like having no steak or fish sticks?

Did Adam and Eve stay healthy because they had to walk to gather their food.  Maybe they kept in shape climbing trees to reach the big oranges. 

Before sin entered the world, our diets must have been different. 

I wonder what they will serve at the Wedding Feast of the Lamb?

  2. Perhaps the serpent was the first to entice with the term "It's sinfully delicious!"

    1. Is that another way of saying, "The devil made me do it?"
