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 2013-174: Canned Spam

I am having fun deleting the spam from my Blogger account.  I month or so ago I discovered how much was being filtered out and being stored in the spam file under “comments.”  I think I had about 6,000 or more sitting there, taking up space.  After consulting with the family geek about the necessity of leaving them or not, I started deleting them 100 at a time.  Now that I am down to doing it every few days I take a moment to glance at the content.  You never know, you might actually have someone posting under “Anonymous” who is serious.  I know I did it a few times when I was starting out.

Here is one that is typical.
“Great post. I was checking constantly this blog and I'm impressed! Very useful info specifically the last part :) I care for such info much. I was seeking this certain information for a long time. Thank you and good luck. Feel free to surf to my web page; how to get pregnant guide on...”
The only thing that would make me take this seriously is my ego.  After all, this guy (or robot) was impressed.  He must be intelligent, right?

The thing that always mystifies me is how they post under “Anonymous” and they have a web page.  It would seem to me that if you really have a web page you would be able to post under something more than “Anonymous.”

Delete your spam.  Don’t let your ego get in the way.  The robot has not been looking for the information for a long time, just suckers.

  1. I got rid of the anonymous option and spam almost disappeared.

  2. It is amazing how we put off doing things that will save us time because "we don't have time."

    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.
