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 2022-330: A New Christmas Holiday?

Word has it that a joke went around Jerusalem back in the day.  They said that it took Elizabeth a week to realize that Zechariah could not talk.

(Luk 1:20 KJV)  And, behold, thou shalt be dumb, and not able to speak, until the day that these things shall be performed, because thou believest not my words, which shall be fulfilled in their season.
It might have taken longer but when he came out of the temple the people outside started asking him questions.  

It might be a theological point to debate that this shows God loves women more than men.  If he loved men more than it would have been Elizabeth who could not talk and we would have a Holiday in the Christmas season requiring all women to be silent.  Perhaps that is what Paul was getting at when he said,
(1Co 14:34 KJV)  Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law.
Just trying to put a little Merry in your Christmas.
