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 2013-368: Heresy 101: Sinful Use of Music

I have just a word of warning for those of you who are on the verge of giving in to temptation:  Don’t play your Christmas music yet.  It is not allowed before Thanksgiving.

I am sure that everyone who is mature agrees and is standing strong.  Christmas music before Thanksgiving is wrong.  You may see sales in the stores.  You may be getting adds already.  I understand that stores are planning on opening on Thanksgiving.  I even saw a Salvation Army kettle outside a store yesterday.  That does not make it right.

It is not allowed before Thanksgiving.

In case you think I am being too hard, I will allow you the flexibility of deciding whether you must wait until the day after Thanksgiving or if you can begin after dessert.  In no case should it be before dessert.  Be strong.  Take the high road.  Resist temptation.

Have you already succumbed to the siren call?  Then perhaps some sort of penance is due.  Maybe you can listen to rap music for the afternoon or perhaps country would punish you enough. 

Remember:  No Christmas music before Thanksgiving.
