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 2017-295: Nobel Apocalypse

For some reason I was not even tempted to click on the Drudge link that said,
“Apocalypse predictions from 50 nobel prize winners...”
It didn’t take long to bring to mind a few famous Nobel Peace Prize winners:  Barak Obama, Al Gore, Jimmy Carter and Yasser Arafat.  That would make an interesting string quartet but I am not sure that their opinions would be something I would spend my remaining time on earth consulting.

I am curious to see what they think an apocalypse is but not curious enough to click on the link.  I have read Daniel and the Book of Revelation.  I am familiar with the 60 million killed my Mao and the 20 million who died during WWII.  Somehow the opinions of a few people who got a medal does not matter.

I may be intolerant but that might also be part of the predictions of these Depositories of Wisdom.

  1. Seems to me the opinions of medal winners rate right up there with the opinions of overpaid celebrities. Nope. Not wasting my time.

    1. I almost was curious enough to wonder what they thought would be the problems but it is very low on my list of Big Questions.

      Grace and peace.

    1. More accurate. Wish I had thought of it, but that is what you are here for.

      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.
