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 2022-005: Subtlety - God Level

Recently we had an answer to prayer.  It was specific and definite, or was it?

My son in law was caught in the jaws of the vaccine mandates.  He was locked into a government mandate and was facing a decision to give up his retirement, health care for his family and his good name because the behemoth of government wanted to throw its weight around.  We have heard the demand to be jabbed.  We have heard there are exemptions for religious reasons.  If you are in the crosshairs you also know that they are not giving those exemptions.  An article in the Gateway Pundit says all religious exemptions have been denied in the Marines.

He filled out paper work, made appointments and we prayed.

It turns out that there was a regulation that brought about the desire we sought.  My question is, “Was that regulation in existence before I prayed and no one was aware of it or did God go back and insert it so it would be there when needed?”  

Does it make any difference?  We will never know how God works out all the knots that need to be dealt with.  We just know that He does.

I have a lot of questions about prayer but we are told to pray and it makes a difference.
