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 2020-300: Monday Pulpit: The God Thing

 Opus 2020-300:  Monday Pulpit:  The God Thing

It has been a long time since I have listened to Alistair Begg on my way to work.  I did write a lot of ideas down from listening to him.  One of them is appropriate for the times we are living in.

    “Providence is a soft pillow to put your head on in the evening.”

My wife like to call it “a God Thing”.  That is cute but does not have the gravitas of “Providence”.  Do I plan and save?  Yes.  Do I lock my doors at night?  Of course.  Do I check the seals on food I buy at the grocery store?  Always.  I don’t play games with God.  He expects me to practice due diligence.  He does not play games with me.  I trust Him to be in charge and watch out for both the microbes and the meteorites.  I am concerned about the election we just went through.  I know that a Biden administration will do much to destroy the righteous in this country.  But I don’t fixate on it.  

Sleep well if you trust Him.
