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 2022-275: Keeping Trim

Is it unhealthy to trim nose hair?

Part of my Sunday grooming ritual is to trim my mustache, nose and ears.  I don’t remember these needing constant care when I was younger.  Maybe it is part of wisdom and grey hair.  It could be part of the phenomenon of hair on your head decreasing but on other parts of the body it gets heavier.  

My mind goes on tangents at the strangest times.

Is nose hair a result of the fall or part of God’s system for keeping our bodies secure?

Did Adam and Eve have nose hair when they were in the Garden?  Did Eve shave her legs?  Did Adam need deodorant?  Were these part of the original blueprint or a result of the entrance of sin into the world?

God usually has a purpose for things in our body.  I imagine that nose hair is to filter out dust and other pollutants.  Which brings me back to my tangent.  When we trim our nose dusters to fit in with our culture are we allowing more diseased bodies to enter our lungs?  It could be that the entire cause of the latest virus is trimming nose hair.  Maybe it even causes obesity.

Just something for you to ponder if your internet connection goes down.
