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 2014-180: Headlines: Incest, Anyone?

The slippery slope.  The domino effect.  Monkey see, monkey do.  Keeping up with the Joneses.  It started with the sexual revolution.  Now incest is pushing for acceptance.

Sure it is one judge.  Sure it is in Australia.  But now we have a voice calling to make incest acceptable.  The article, linked from Drudge, is called “Australian judge says incest may no longer be a taboo.” 

Once society begins throwing out traditional moral values there will be no end.  Today we assume sex before marriage.  Divorce is common.  Children without fathers are moving toward majority status.  We are endorsing homosexuality.  Now we have a voice being raised in favor of incest.  Sex with children is just around the corner.  Soon you will be able to consider an animal your sex partner. 

You say, “It will never happen.”  You said that about homosexual marriage just a few years ago.

Remember, it wasn’t the barbarians that brought down Rome.  They still had armies.  They still had the technology.  They still had the wealth.  It was inner decay.  It was a society that abandoned its moral principles.  We are raising the barbarians in our homes and lowering the bar in our behavior.

Stay tuned.

  1. The next thing we will hear is how this judge believes his toothbrush is sending him messages when he brushes his teeth. And, he will be removed from his position and locked up. This is crazy talk and not at all comparable to gay marriage.

    1. I repeat. The idea of homosexual unions being the same as marriage would have been considered crazy fifty years ago. And I think the messages come from the fillings not the toothbrush.

      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.
