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 2014-3: Not a Paid Advertisement

Google gives interesting insights into our culture.

In my other blog, Perpetual Proverbs, I was preparing a post and an old saying came to mind.  “What goes around, comes around.”  I Googled it to get an insight into what it really meant.  Instead of a link to explain the term I was swamped by repeated references to a song by Justin Timberlake.

So we have a culture that defines terms in relation to celebrities, not by actual history.  We live in a world that has lost it’s connection to the past and has no clue to why and how things work.  It is all what the latest heart throb is fixated on.

The most interesting insight I gained by looking down the listing was the word “Karma.”  I had never thought about it but Karma is a good understanding of the saying I was looking up.

I see the same phenomenon when I Google my blog, “Medley of Worship.”  Some guy named Darwin Hobbs dominates the screen.  I am not sure if he recorded an album or a single by that name.  I managed to be number 5 on the list but everything else belonged to him.  I had this title in my mind for a few years before I set up the domain.  If I had waited a little longer it would belong to him.

Find out the values of our culture.  See who is setting the standards.  Google.  (This is not a paid advertisement.)

  1. I've run into the same problem many times. Often, I have to change from a word to a phrase or a question to find what I'm looking for. As for the phrse you were searching for, many folks will accept that saying who will not care for "whatsoever a man soweth..."

  2. One problem with computers is that they are no smarter than the person using them. If you type in the wrong word, you get the wrong answer. I just keep looking until my IQ matches the computer's.

    Grace and peace.


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.
