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 2014-140: Who Brings Home Your Bacon?

A couple of years ago Alistar Begg made a comment in one of his podcasts, “Fathering is the most dignified role I will ever play.”

That bears repeating.  “Fathering is the most dignified role I will ever play.”  This is a concept that our culture needs to revisit.  If you are not a father you probably can’t understand it.  I know I didn’t.  I was not ready for the changes in perspective that a child could bring.  I noticed the same thing in my wife. 

Children change you.  Or they should.

Our culture is working against this.  A man now wants a woman who can not only bear his children but go to work to help pay for them.  Remember the song that began, “I can bring home the bacon, fry it up in a pan and never let him forget he’s a man.”  Men tend to want the toys and leisure that come from a working wife.  Women go along.  Doesn’t everyone deserve a manicure and nice clothes?

In the process the children are turned over to the day care centers of the nation.  The church has bought into this by supplying day care.  They endorse the concept of families leaving their decedents in the hands of people who often work for minimum wage because they can’t get anything better. 

It is time for the men of this nation to step up to the plate and become responsible again.  If the popular culture won’t because the narcissism is too ingrained, then it needs to begin in the church. 

Grow up and Happy Fathers’ Day.

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.
