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 2016-283: Sometimes Free Is Too Expensive

I don’t listen to the radio much any more.  On occasion I am forced to do so because I forgot my I-pod but I am quickly reminded of why I turn it off.  I get frustrated with the commercials.  One time I was listening to a pod-cast of an hour program.  It was about 26 minutes and still included some commercials. 

My life is too short.

On the other hand I say, “Okay.  It is free enterprise.  Go for it.  I salute you.”  They have the freedom to sell me their product.  The other side of free enterprise is that I don’t have to listen.  I remember how I have even stopped listening to certain pod-casts because after the audience was built up and they had a following they started either demanding a subscription or inserting commercials.  Fine with me.  I hope you are successful.  I can go somewhere else.  I can find another outlet.  I did it with TV years ago and am doing it to radio now.

So make all the money you can but not on me.

I love free enterprise.

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.
