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 2013-162: Headlines: The Scandal of the Pope Opposing the Devil

It wasn’t there today so it must have not been a big story but when I Googled it I got a lot of hits.  I refer to the recent headline on the Drudge Report about the scandal of the Pope performing an exorcism.  What got my attention was not the Pope casting out a demon but the fact that the tabloids seemed to think this was a scandal.


Let’s see now, the head of the largest Christian organization in the world attacks the kingdom of the enemy, the Devil.  This is not a man bites dog story.  It isn’t even a dog bites man story.  It should be in the category of “The Sun Came up Today” story.  After all, isn’t fighting the power of Satan the primary job of the head of a Christian organization?

Maybe the mass media needs to get their head out of the Obama Spin Machine and look around them.  They have been doing mindless drivel so long they are shocked when the normal happens.

Maybe we ought to have the Pope visit Hollywood or the New York Times and see what he could do there.

  1. The pope was messing with THEIR god (though they're too stupid to know it); that's what upset them.

    1. How do the kids admit that they were not thinking? "I knew that." I guess it should be obvious.

      Grace and peace.
