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 2017-150: Thanks Thoughts: Infinite to Insignificance

I was meditating on the nature of God and his omnipotence.  It came to me again that the God who created the universe also knew me in totality.  That thought contains both warm fuzzies and abject terror.

Some might think such thinking is a bit arrogant.  Who am I to think that God even notices me?  I understand and agree with that response.  In the scheme of things I am of no significance.  Neither are you.  The awesome nature of God is that He is big enough to cover both ends of the spectrum.  In fact, it isn’t arrogance on my part to think He knows me.  It is an awareness of how eternal and infinite God is.  You see, if He were not big enough to know me, He would not really be God, at least the God of the Bible. 

We have so many things to be thankful for.
