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 2015-189: Links: A Catholic view of the Pope

Those of us who are conservative and not Roman Catholics are watching Pope Francis with a leery eye.  One of the problems with organizations that have powerful solo leaders is that you get a lot of variety in the job.  Down through history the Popes have run the gamut from genuine saints to criminals.  This one is somewhere in the goof-ball range.  He reminds me of our president in that he is a loose cannon easily manipulated by the elites on the left.

I enjoy it when a self-identified Catholic agrees with me.  You would not expect religious commentary on a gun blog like Gun Free Zone, but I think this one is quotable.
“I guess we Catholics are stuck with a Pope that is more intent on being 21st Century hip than actually tending to the spiritual needs of the flock. Instead of the Rock in which Church is built, we go[t] a pontoon to a Party House Boat.”
I could not have said it better but I will try later.

    1. It is certainly running that way. His constant litany about redistributing income and calls for social justice certainly fit into that mold.

      Either a Communist or a Democrat.

      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.
