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 2020-016: Time to Shut Up and Deal

Would God play poker?  He would know what your cards were.  He would call all your bluffs.  He would know when to draw on an inside straight.  If He wanted to cheat He could change the cards in His hand. 

I guess the real question is, “Would you play poker with God?”  Assume that He would not cheat by switching the two of diamonds for the queen of hearts.  Of course He is God so I assume He would not be able to not know what was in your hand.  What kind of game would it be?  You might win a few hands but there is no way you could walk away from the game a winner.

In life are you trying to draw to an inside straight?  Are you bluffing?  Have you considered the odds?

Your deal.
