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 2022-075: The Cans of Life

I have mentioned deconstructionism before.  It is a philosophy that fuels our Proregressive* institutions.  It basically boils down to saying that words mean whatever you want them to mean at the time you mean it.  It gives them total control over the conversation if you waste time talking to them.

That is not to say that words do not mean different things at different times.  I am guessing that many of you have a copy of Roget’s Thesaurus on one of your shelves.  If not you have seen them at school or the library.  It is a tool for looking up the variations of meanings or for synonyms if you are trying to be creative.  One of my favorite simple words that has multiple meanings is the word “can”.  I looked it up in the thesaurus and was reminded of a meaning that had left my world.  It can mean jail.  Also of interest I did not see any mention of the containers that soup and soda come in.  I guess you can’t even trust reference books any more.

This is just a reminder that language can be used to confuse and distract as much as to clarify and explain.  Much of it depends on the attitudes and motives of the speaker.  Everyone does it to some degree but you can almost assume that anyone who doesn’t believe in God will take a lot more liberties than a devout believer.  The Christian knows that God is listening and he will be held accountable.  The non-believer or cultist will feel like they are their own judge.

Be careful out there; it is a jungle.
