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 2013-214: Cornerstone Considerations: D of I, Truths: Butting into Our Lives

As we celebrate the 4th of July it is time to think again about the reasons the original rebellion began.  I hope you take this opportunity to read through the Declaration of Independence.  Make it a family tradition.  Much of it will seem like it could have been written today.

I have looked at the opening paragraphs of the Declaration already.  As you read through the list of grievances you come across this.  I believe it is the tenth offense listed.
“He has erected a Multitude of new Offices, and sent hither Swarms of Officers to harass our People, and eat out their Substance.”
Think for a minute all of the number of czars that the president has appointed without the approval of the senate.  Think about the current way in which he has allowed the IRS and the NSA to get into our lives and harass us.  The colonies tried for years to be diplomatic about the issues but they were ignored. 

King George III had nothing on King Barak I

Enjoy the freedoms you still have left.  I think you can still choose Coke or Pepsi as long as you don’t want a large.
