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 2022-020: God Thoughts: Squirrel Glory

I have a lot of questions and “squirrel” thoughts.  That makes me believe in a Creator.  It makes it impossible to have just accidently happened.

We have the Imago De which makes it possible for us to comprehend that we cannot comprehend.  The animals don’t have such an ability.  Plants obviously don’t.  It was only man that was given the image of God planted within them.  Man by his very nature comes up with new ideas.  The phrase from Star Trek, “to go where no man have ever gone before” was not one of those creative ideas.  It was simply an observation.  It is the way people are.  It is why the first Indian tribes wandered into North America.  It is why Columbus sailed west.  I might be why you took that road on your vacation.  If you ever visit The Daily Timewaster you may have seen the picture of a comic book cover that had gorillas going into space before humans.  Last I heard they had not even developed a machine to pick the lice off each other.

We can comprehend what we cannot comprehend.  Maybe we don’t understand totally but we can get a vague idea.  I have mentioned infinity before.  I have mentioned the square root of minus two.  In theology we have concepts like the trinity and the incarnation.

When your grandchildren keep asking, “Why?” rejoice.  It is the image of God trying to break out.  Granted much of it might be just to irritate you but your dog never does it.  

Keep asking and wondering.  Welcome to the human race.
