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 2019-021: The Real Fake, part 1 of 2

I am not overly concerned when I hear that we live in a post-Christian culture.  Since I believe in God and believe that Jesus is God, the current trends in society are just that, current trends.  We need to understand the difference between the organized church and the church as the body of Christ.  One is a legal entity which may or may not be necessary.  The legal institution can exist with no believers as a part of it.  There are many immense edifices today that have signs declaring them churches but they contain noone who believes in the physical resurrection of Jesus or His divinity.  They exist because somewhere in the past lot of money was invested and the interest on those investments keeps the doors open.  The real church is made up of believers whether they have a brick and mortar structure or meet in a park.  The true church will endure until the end.

What really concerns me is that we are living in a post-science culture.  The value of science is the scientific method which salutes a theory proved wrong almost as much as one verified.  True science it is never “settled”.  There will always be questions and experiments based on the three foundations:  Observable, repeatable, measurable.  Those who don’t understand that have a long history of declaring things like “you cannot go faster than the speed of sound” and “You can tell intelligence by the shape of the head”.  The world of real science and honest investigation is passing away.  What is now called science has become a pawn in the hands of left wing politicians who want to use the respect science has earned as a tainted club to force people into socialism and government tyranny controlled by a small elite. 

To be concluded...
