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 2013-346: The Up’s and Down’s of Loads

As I was listening to a sermon by Mark Driscoll he commented on how in the last year their website had downloaded 25 million sermons.  Even when divided by 365 that is an awesome number.  It comes out 68,493 a day.  That is encouraging. 

What makes me sad is that it means there are a lot of people out there who are not being preached to in a meaningful way.  Too many pastors are giving public service messages or self-help lectures and ignoring the eternal Word of God.

We will not have revival in the church unless we hear more of what God has said.  We will not have a renewal in America unless we have revival in the church.  Sad to say, if America is lost as a force for right, the world will become an even more ugly place.
(Romans 10:14 KJV)  How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?
If you have a real preacher, treasure him.  If you don’t, try to help him.  Pray for revival.

    1. I don't know if I am encouraged by leaders like Driscoll or discouraged because so many are not standing tall.

      I keep telling myself, "I have read the book and I know who wins."

      Grace and peace.
