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 2016-21: Media Red Herrings

Yesterday morning on a talk show I heard that there is some kind of noise over Trump saying “One Corinthians” rather than “First Corinthians”.  I was guessing it was something from the debate.  I got the impression that the media types were making a big deal about it.  On the way home I heard it on another program and found out it was from an appearance at Liberty University.

It is just more smoke and mirrors.

The reason I didn’t get the whole context in the morning is because I was listening to a sermon by Alistair Begg on my I-pod and tend to go back and forth to the radio.  The reason I say “smoke and mirrors” is because Begg, one of the more popular preachers on the radio, always says “One Corinthians”.  Since he is from Scotland I assume it is part of his British heritage or it might even be exclusive to Scotland itself. 

I am not a Trump fan.  He certainly doesn’t need me to defend him but this kind of nonsense just gives the talking heads something to distract us with instead of substance and issues.  Instead of focusing on vocal mannerisms I wish they would lay out all of the different positions Trump has taken over the years.

But then that might get people thinking and the MSM certainly doesn’t want that.

  1. There's an awful lot of silliness in MSM reporting these days.

    1. I am enough of a cynic to believe it is deliberate silliness.

      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.
