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 2020-143: On the Street: The Anti-Christ Arrives

My wife has the ability to talk to anyone.  Although I often cannot follow her, strangers seem to be able to tell their entire life story while standing in line at the grocery store.  Of course that was before social distancing but I think that just means she now has to talk louder.  Yesterday, while she was in the ladies room, she learned that Donald J. Trump is the anti-Christ.  Yes, that Donald J. Trump.  Yes, that anti-Christ. 

Why?  Because she had seen a picture on the internet of his parents dressed up like the KKK.  We all know that if you see it on the internet, it must be true.  That means that the Democratic leadership, dressed in their Kente cloth were really bowing down to Donald J. Trump as he walked by.  I know because I saw the picture at least two different places. 

Somewhere in my memory I think I have seen photos of Barak Obama dressed in KKK robes.  Does that make him a member?  Not as much as being a Democrat does. 

In being called the Anti-Christ Trump joins a long list of the accused.  It ranges from Nero to KJF.  And there are a lot of candidates in between.  The Bible teaches that there will be an Anti-Christ.  It also says that there will be many anti-Christs.  My memory tells me there is a case to be made that anyone who is refusing to bow to the Almighty is a part of the anti-Christ.  He will come but I don’t think we will be able to guess or point fingers until it is too late.

Meanwhile be careful what you learn in bathrooms and grocery lines.

homo unius libri


  1. Bathroom walls are the best for learning important things. They have such high literary standards.

    1. When we were younger and very involved in the pro-life movement we had someone put our telephone number on a stall divider. We got some interesting phone calls and had to forbid our kids from answering the phone for awhile.

      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.
