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 2022-034: God As a Tool

For pagans the divine is a giant tool box.  Some are well organized, others an example of chaos.  Sad to say this is the view many pagan Christians also have.  God is Mr. Fixit.

God is more of a Cosmic Multitool.  He is one.  The Bible is clear that there is only one God.  All of the tools to create the universe and sooth your heart are in the same package.  

You might think of the trinity as a pocket knife with three different blades.  My pocket knife has two cutting blades but I have others that are more specialized.  Most people associate the knife with the blade they use the most.  In reference to the trinity you have totally different functions but all are “knife”.  

I am sure I drifted into some type of heresy there but I can live with it since I am not making a doctrinal statement.
