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 2013-176: On the Street: Redundancy

As I came to a stop I noticed that the car in front of me had a stop light burned out.  The could have been a problem but had been planned for.  The tail light and one stoplight were working.  The middle light was working.  It is called redundancy.  It makes sense.  I have a spare tire (on the car, not on me).  I carry an extra pen.  I have a twenty tucked away in my wallet.  I have a quart of oil stored in the back of my jeep. 

What about redundancy in the scripture.  Some themes come up again and again.  I see it as I read through Proverbs each month.  Why?  One reason God throws them at us so many ways and offers such redundancy is for our safety and well being.  He is trying to make sure that the spiritual job gets done and that we are alerted. 

I wish I could say it is redundancy when I post something that I already wrote about but that is called memory, or lack of it.

So be glad that things are repeated.  After all, where would we be if our wives did not keep reminding us that our wedding anniversary is coming up?
