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 2020-156: On the Street: Virtuous Panic

I had an insight into why certain professions are so concerned about wearing a mask.  With the current state of panic and government manipulation a doctor who contacts the virus will be driven out of his profession.  It doesn’t matter if he has symptoms.  It doesn’t matter that he is not really dangerous to anyone else.  He will be sent home.  He will be a victim of the panic as much as an innocent bystander overrun by a riot. 

When I come up to a store that virtue signals me to be concerned for others when there is no dange,r I will turn and shop somewhere else as long as I can.  For my doctors and dentist I guess I can wear a face covering, even if I don’t think it makes any difference.

Isn’t that big of me?

I am so tired of the spirit of fear.

  1. I never thought about this before, but in the secular life, the devil often owns the fearful and the overly bold (not that he doesn't also own a lot of folks in between).

    1. You might apply that to the church also.

      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.
