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 2014-64: Monday Pulpit: The Obama Drought

Our pastor has been looking at the drought in California and drawing parallels to the way in which God withdraws His blessing and allows calamity to descend on hedonistic, rebellious nations.  The list of possibilities is long:  Drought or flood, locusts, invasion, poverty.  California has them all and they are coming to the rest of the nation.

I wonder if there isn’t a figurative way in which Barak Obama represents a drought of God.  It has been said that people get the government they deserve.  Our nation is seeing a surge of immorality and narcissism that takes us back to the days of Rome.  The same people that are pushing abortion, homosexuality, crony capitalism, rampant welfare, race baiting, Gaia worship and government coercion elected this man.  It could be that the coming disasters are simply God’s way of saying, “Okay.  You asked for it.  You got it.”

Historically the antidote for these curses is revival.  I don’t think the pain has reached enough people yet.  I hope the threshold is reached before it is too late.

Obama won two majorities.  Enjoy your choice, America.  Enjoy our choice, world.
