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 2016-186: An Accident Averted

Warning:  Theology ahead.

Recently we watched a guy who turned south on a highway we were on.  There were numerous lanes.  He wanted to go south.  The road was connected to his destination.  The car responded to his direction.  There was no law enforcement officer saying, “No.”  The reason we noticed?  It was a one way road heading north.

You would have thought he would have known better.
    Already crossed the southbound lane.
    Signs saying “no right turn”
    Arrows on the ground
    No center line

He was finally convinced by three lanes of traffic heading straight towards him.  It worked out well with shaking heads and laughter for all.  Embarrassment usually doesn’t do permanent harm.

What will it take to convince you?  How is life working for you?  I don’t mean whether you got the raise or whether your transmission just blew up.  I mean the general sense of purpose and satisfaction.  Sometimes the choices we make seem so right and are so wrong.  Jesus put it this way,
(Matthew 7:13 KJV)  Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
Just because the road is wide and inviting does not mean it is the right way to go.  Maybe it is time to rethink some life strategies and priorities.
