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 2021-198: One Man’s Truth Is Another Man’s Trash

I continue to ask myself how Democrats and Rinos live with themselves.  I keep thinking they must know they are lying and in the process ruining the lives of millions.  Then I come across a line in According to Hoyt that jumps out at me and I felt like sharing.  Hoyt was reflecting on how she told lies as a child and how that evolved into writing fiction.  She was saying that fiction was an acceptable way to tell lies because everyone knows they are lies.

I heard her speaking about so many people I know about when she wrote,

“...the problem of being an habitual liar is that no one will believe you when you tell the honest truth. And worse, that you lie to yourself, till you don’t know what the truth is.”
The first is obvious.  The second point is an insight that is worth considering.  People like Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, et al have been lying so long that it is possible they have become so detached from reality that they don’t know what truth is any more.  I guess the question is really, “How old were they when they lost that perception?”  I am guessing it was very young.

It is sad that they will never know the truth and the truth will never make them free.  Make sure you don’t fall into the same trap.

  1. My dad used to say that if a person can lie to themselves, they don't have to lie to anyone else.

  2. Well, speaking of "One Book..." - Truth and freedom as described in John 8:32, John 14:6, and Galatians 5:1 (Thank you, abbreviated concordance) bring to mind the best definition of truth I have yet heard, to wit, "Reality as it is perceived by God."

    1. Now THAT is reality. And it requires that we make the adjustments.

      Grace and peace
