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 2013-192: On the Street: Misguided Friends

I was in the car with my wife and she had the radio on, listening to Sean Hannity.  He was interviewing a congressman who supposedly had his act together.  They were talking about one of the current scandals.  Hannity asked if any crimes had been commited.  The congressman said, “Some things were illegal but I don’t know if they were criminal.”  Excuse me!  Just how can something be illegal and not be criminal?  The only type of thing that fits that category is jaywalking.  Having the federal government embroiled in a major scandal is hardly jaywalking. 

This from one who was supposedly on our side.  At times I despair.

It just goes to show that we can never stop thinking, even when our “friends” are talking.  It seems that being in Washington, D.C. does something to our basic sense of values and it isn’t good.

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.
