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 2021-353: Jobs Diet Plan

I am not sure if it is boring or amusing to listen to different theories about what we should eat.  One thing we should have learned by now is that all the latest insights are not necessarily new nor do they make sense.  Does salt make things taste better or is it just a cultural norm?  Is salt bad for you?  If salt kills you this is being written by my personal ghost writer because I died a long time ago.  Are eggs good for you or unhealthy?  Recently I went down to breakfast in our hotel and the offering was some wannabe omelet made with only egg whites.  It had a special sort of name and the taste was as special as it’s handle.  I find certain statements from the Bible to be good guidance.  

(Job 6:6 NAS77) "Can something tasteless be eaten without salt, Or is there any taste in the white of an egg?
And add to that the fact that believers are called the “salt of the earth” and that is a good thing.

Common sense is a rare commodity.  It would help if we would turn it on when we listen to the latest guru or read the current diet book.  I find that common sense and simple observation is usually better than the most impressive scientific research.

Results may vary.
