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 2015-243: Discernment Watch: Your Spell-checker

It is hard to believe that such a simple thing as a spell-checker on your computer can be politically correct but the observed evidence says otherwise.  I have run across a lot of little things in my Biblical studies that reflect this.  For instance the abbreviation for OT for Old Testament is marked as a misspelling but NT, or New Testament, is accepted.  Why?  Because Microsoft has an operating system labeled “NT.”

Now, about politics.  I was writing about an article that reflected positively on America.  In the article and in my post I used the words American Exceptionalism.  They cannot yet label “American” as a misspelling but the term “Exceptionalism” was highlighted and had no suggestions for a correct spelling.  “Liberalism” is not a misspelling.  “Vegetarianism” is not a misspelling.  Exceptionalism is.

GIGO (garbage in, garbage out) is the motto of anything you find built into your computer.  Remember the computer is stupid and programmed, much like our current college graduates.  As Regan said, “Trust, but verify.”
