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 2022-277: Beyond the Tube

I am going to expand my understanding of the term “Boob Tube”.  I have habitually thought of it as TV but since the old format of TV is rapidly withering it needs to be expanded to anything that comes across on a screen.

Maybe I can change the spelling to reflect the variety, The Boooob Tube.  This would still include the residue of broadcast TV but would expand to include what people watch on their phones, pads and laptops.  I am amazed at all the startling information that people share with me.  What disappoints me is that they seem to have no more discernment about what they hear on You Tube than they did with CNN.  For a time I took notes on what they were telling me but eventually realized they did not want to be reminded.

People absorb what they watch.  People are like computers in the sense of GIGO, for the uninitiated that’s Garbage in, Garbage out.  It makes me wonder about what I have stored away in my own mind.

Never stop thinking.  Question everything.  Remember what was said yesterday.  

One of the examples of this has to do with the conspiracy to manage the weather being developed by the big players.  Did you know that the latest hurricane was directed and manipulated by these players.  What I find amazing is that these same worry warts used to be telling me that the world was too big for mankind’s carbon footprint to change the climate.  You can’t have it both ways.  Either our cars and farting cows are heating up the planet or you can’t micro-manage hurricanes.

Since I believe God designed the planet knowing cows pass gas, we don’t need to worry about either problem.
