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 2017-284: Digging into Deuteronomy: Don’t Assume

(Deuteronomy 2:15 KJV)  For indeed the hand of the LORD was against them, to destroy them from among the host, until they were consumed.

Here is a point that Christians and Jews need to mark down.  Although it is good to be the chosen people, that does not guarantee that all will be milk and honey.  God’s “hand” (3027) was against them even though they were the chosen ones. 

Some people think that America has replaced Israel as God’s chosen people.  I don’t see any Biblical evidence for that.  At the same time we have been blessed by God because until recently we at least paid lip service to His standards. 

Remember that God can, and will, turn His hand against us if we continue to live in perversion and rebellion.

  1. Amen. Allowing homosexual preachers doesn't bode well for us.

    1. And it is strange how the people who advocate that seem to reject things like the physical resurrection.

      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.
