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 2018-242: Political Theater in Proverbs

I want to share something I came across in Proverbs today.  As I read it my mind went to a recent political display that most of us have been following.  I will mention no names or point any fingers although I am probably shaking a fist.  It starts with this,
(Proverbs 6:16 KJV)  These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:
I have read that many times and reflected on the verses that follow.  Usually I am looking to get my own act together but today it seemed like something that should have been covered by the MSM.  Read this and ponder.
(Proverbs 6:17 KJV)  A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.

I’m going to guess you didn’t need to ponder too long.  I have this feeling that certain faces and actions came to your mind without me saying anything.  If not then you have been playing video games too much.

The things we have seen have created a lot of rage in me and probably in you.  Keep in mind that they are an abomination to God.

It is good to be on the right side.  Again, I will let you fill in the names.

  1. God tells us that hell will never be full.

  2. Not as long as so many people want to get in.

    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.
