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 2021-110: Headlines: Living Phonies

I have watched with amusement and anger the outrage of a group called “Pro-Life Evangelicals for Biden” have expressed their shock at being betrayed by Joe Biden on abortion.  Let me give you a slice of reality:  You cannot be pro-life or evangelical if you supported Joe Biden.  It’s like a vegan wanting their steak well done.  It is an oxymoron.  

Let me explain if it isn’t obvious to you.

Evangelicals are a group of Christian believers who are not denominational but are spread across most denominations.  An evangelical believes that Jesus died on the cross for our sins and was physically resurrected to show that we have eternal hope.  An evangelical believes that the Bible is the word of God and we are expected to live by its teaching.  If you take any time to consider what the Democrats campaign on you will see that their platform is incompatible with the teachings of the Bible.  Just consider that the convention repeatedly refused to acknowledge the existence of God.

It is also impossible to be in favor of abortion and be a Christian.  The Bible is clear that unborn babies are people and bear the image of God.  To kill them is anything from manslaughter, in the case of accidental causing of a miscarriage, to murder.  In the case of Joe Biden, who claims to be a Catholic, it is very clear he should be excommunicated for his support of killing the unborn.

If you call yourself a pro-life evangelical and support a man who is clearly anti-life and anti God then it means you are either stupid, ignorant or evil.  

Pro-life Evangelicals for Biden?  I bet these people don’t even know the answer to, “Is the Pope a Catholic?” or “Who is buried in Grant’s tomb?”
