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 2016-213: Headlines: Laugh Line

The New York Sun had an interesting editorial on Israel’s response to the Iran deal.  The general point was that they were not happy.  As I read I came across a sentence that made my eyebrows go up.
“No one has suggested Mr. Obama is an anti-Semite or disloyal to America.”
Really?  I would have to disagree with that totally.  I guess it is possible to do everything you can to undermine Israel and not be anti-Semitic but I think they tend to be two rails on the same track.  On the second idea, it seems to me that President Obama has done everything he can to make America weaker, undermined out allies and shattered our alliances.  If that is not disloyal to American I am not sure what would qualify.

Even people that seem conservative can have their heads in the sand.  Maybe we should institute ear checks to see if any got in.

  1. Agreed on both points about the prez.

    1. I always wish I could get the tone of voice or facial expression of a journalist when they write something like that.

      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.
