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 2017-002: New Eternity’s Day

What will eternity be like.  It is beyond our understanding but so is a comparatively simple thing like a computer chip.  We still think about it and wonder.  One of the questions that I have heard is, “How can I find joy in eternity knowing that people I love are in Hell?”  A good question and I don’t know that I have a definitive answer.  I trust that God will supply it when I need it.

There is another question that troubles me.  It is a question that I might be able to do something about.  The trial of eternity will not be forgetting the pain and suffering but the ways in which I failed God. 

Have you had a time when you let down one of your children?  Did you ever disappoint your parents?  It can really eat at you and you can’t go back and redo it.  Now think about all the blessings and opportunities that God has given you, and ask yourself how you have repaid Him.  Obviously we cannot repay Him for the gift of salvation.  Obviously we are fallible.  Just as obvious is the realization that we could have done better.  I am not talking about rejection but a desire to hear, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant.”

Now is the time to consider.  We will have an eternity to regret.
