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 2016-200: Election 2016: True/False not Multiple Choice

I was and am a Cruz supporter.  I had no trouble with what he said in his speech at the convention.  I also realize that he is no longer running for president in 2016.  I am getting over it. 

It is time to realize that we no longer have a multiple choice test before us.  Nor is it an essay test.  It is true/false. 

What are the qualities of a true/false test?  In reality we only have two choices, T or H.  You can leave the answer blank.  It will be marked wrong.  You may feel righteous, but it will be marked wrong.  You can put another letter.  It will be marked wrong.  You can give a short answer.  It will be marked wrong.

It seems like even if we get the “right” answer we will get it wrong.

In the world of tests you will always come across questions where there is really no correct answer.  It happens.  Sometimes it is a misprint, poor editing or simply ignorance.  Other times it is because the person building the test is pushing his opinions rather than reality.  In a situation like that you can leave it blank and be assured of losing, you can guess and have a statistical chance of winning or you can try to figure out what the fool who wrote the question wants.  The answer may be wrong in reality but in the fantasy world of tests you get the points.

The test comes in November.
