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 2016-161: Discernment Watch: The Camel Nose of Censorship

The attack on your freedom of speech is underway.  What is interesting is that it is being pushed by people who should be fighting on the other side.  I found a statement that was designed to move people toward censorship in an article tying the Orlando shooter with a imam who ran an online “Fundamental Islamic Knowledge Seminary.”

My problem is not with linking the two or identifying the imam as radical.  My problem comes with saying that the imam was “openly and enthusiastically preached against homosexuality,...”

This was implied to be hate speech.  You know how filled with hate those radical Muslims are, right?  The problem is that this statement could be used to label every Bible believing Christian pastor in the country.  The label would not be given because they were filled with hate and wanted to kill homosexuals.  It would be because they pointed out that the Bible clearly states that homosexual acts are sinful.

Beware of media and government censors trying to tell you what you can say and thus tell you what you can believe.  Keep in mind that the university students of today consider the Declaration of Independence a seditious document.  Polls on college campuses show a coming generation that has been brainwashed into giving up the freedoms of the Bill of Rights.  It will start with the crazy ones and proceed to you.

Be alert.

  1. I kinda wondered how long it would be until folks on the left realized that their current two favorite groups, LGBT & Muslims, will not mix.

    1. I am not sure they realize it yet. Throw the feminists into the mix and it gets even more interesting.

      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.
