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 2014-196: Headlines: The Fourth Choice

Are you paying attention to the evangelism efforts of the Religion of Peace?

You can read about it at the Independent website.  One of the results of the ISIS conquests of Syria and Iraq is the murder of what few Christians remain in those areas.  In the article it clearly states that ISIS has given the Christians of Iraq a choice:  Convert, pay a special tax, or die.  Of course we understand that the grave is very peaceful but that isn’t what we Christians think of as peace.

Lest you think this is an isolated quirk of this small group, here is one quote from the Koran, Surah 9, verse 29,
“Make war upon such of those to whom the Scriptures have been given as believe not in God, or in the last day, and who forbid not that which God and His Apostle have forbidden, and who profess not the profession of the truth, until they pay tribute out of hand, and they be humbled.” 
If you don’t believe me, look it up yourself.

The tribute payers are called dhimmis.  They are allowed to live as a lower class of humanity.  Not only is there a tax but many other restrictions.  You are limited in what you can wear, where you can live and must always display a proper respect for those of the Religion of Peace.  This demand by ISIS is not Islamic fundamentalism, it is Islam.  It is taught clearly in the Koran.  It is the desire of Islam for the entire world.

Wake up America.  When the Imams get here remember you will have three choices:  Convert, live as a slave, die.  Actually there is a fourth choice:  Win.
