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 2021-311: Time to Double Down

I don’t know if you believe in prayer.  I don’t understand prayer.  If God is omnipotent and omniscient, what difference does it make if we pray?  I don’t have an answer to that.  The question is on my list for my first sit down with Jesus in eternity.  But I don’t need an answer because we have been told to pray.  Paul sums it up for us.

(1Th 5:17 KJV)  Pray without ceasing.
I don’t know about you but I was pleased with the outcomes of many recent elections.  I will be even more pleased if the numbers hold up.  Never doubt the ingenuity of Democrats when it comes to stealing an election.  I like to think this is in answer to prayer.  I have seen God answering prayers in other areas.

It is time to double down.  We need to pray for those who have been newly elected.  We need to pray that they would follow the path of righteousness.  I don’t have any idea where they are spiritually but we need to pray that they move in ways that encourage righteousness.  The battle is not over for the soul of America and the future of the world.  We need to keep manning the ramparts of prayer.

And while you are at it, don’t just pray for President Trump.  We need to drown our current president and his cohorts in prayer.  Remember how God continually used the pagans of the Middle East to bring Israel into line.  He can use the pagans of modern America too.

So keep at it.  Pray without ceasing.
