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 2022-033: God As a Professional

I was in my daily time of praise and trying for a fresh approach.  I was praising Him for His healing and such when it occurred to me that all I needed to do was change the article.  God is not “a” healer, but “the” Healer.  Get it more down to earth for the masses, He is “The” Doctor.  

And as they say, the list goes on:
    The Engineer
    The Mathematician
    The Artist
    The Weatherman

All you need to do is look back over the things you prayer about and for.  God is the ultimate.  That makes Him The Answer.

There is a danger here of viewing these attributes as isolated.  These are not moods.  They are not demigods.  They are not part of a pantheon of gods.  They are not godlets assigned a specific task.  They are attributes that only have meaning as a part of the entire personhood of God.  It is similar in understanding to the trinity.  God never turns any of them off.
