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 2013-86: On the Street: The Big Question

Recently I learned what “Starters” are, it is a brand name and my impression was that they specialize in a certain type of jacket.  A young man, who is flunking all of his classes and who has a lack of self control that does not bode well for his future, was totally focused on his jacket.  It was the center of his world.  He had one, I didn’t.  He was better than me and of all creatures I was the most pitied. 

What are the important questions of life?  Is it a matter of designer clothes?  Is it a certain job title?  Recently I did a series on a book that said the most important question of life was “Why do bad things happen to good people?”  Recently I was listening to Alistair Begg.  He was waxing strong on the concept of having a personal relationship with God.  He said clearly that is the most important question. 

I have a lot of questions I ask.  One of them is “Why me?”  Of course the answer is “Why not me?”  Which question is most important?  I would tend to agree with Begg.  Am I right with God?  That is most important because it molds all the other questions.

What are the most important questions in your life?  If you don’t ask the right questions the chances are you won’t get the right answers.

  1. You don't have a starter jacket? Uh.....what is it again? ;-)

    1. You are obviously not in the know. Maybe they don't have a franchise in WV.

      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.
