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 2022-336: Wish Fulfillment

Have you ever had those times when you wish you could have talked to God about how He was putting creation together?  You know the kind of thing, “Lord, could we leave mosquitos out of the mix?”

There are times when I think the Bible could have been written a bit clearer.  We could have cleared up the conflict between Calvinists and Arminians.  

Or maybe we couldn’t.  

Maybe the depths of truth sometimes require seeming contradictions.

But lets go to those people who have wanted to rewrite the Bible.  Thomas Jefferson and his famous Scissors and Glue Version (SGV) come to mind.  Cults like the Jehovah’s Witnesses are also in that camp.  If Jefferson were alive today he would see his dream becoming reality.  

We are in the process of finding out how the world would be different if these factions had been more successful.  The traditional foundations of our society are being powdered and diluted.  The family is on the rocks.  Sexual perversion seems to be in the driving seat.  The rule of law has become a facade.  The roots for this transformation are to be found in the way in which the Christian faith has been prostituted by people who know exactly what they are doing.  Some things the Bible is very clear about and yet these people claim to have a better wisdom.

We are overwhelmed with liberal’s wearing the fleece of God:  Pastors, authors, scholars, general gurus have all gotten on board to destroy the faith of the Bible.  It is pure hypocrisy.  The names keep changing.  A few years ago the Emergent Church was denying Biblical truth.  As people caught on they did what liberals do and rebranded themselves.  They now like the handle Progressive Christianity.  

They want to leave out the harsh parts of God’s revelation.  They don’t like the fact that God hates sin and will punish sinners.  They have changed Agape into a woke version of The Little Mermaid.  They say we are all good inside.  They teach things that Christians should find as abominations.

The results?  Watch the headlines.  Look around you as you pass through your neighborhood.  Listen to the quiet conversations in your family and friends.  It is not a pretty picture but it is one that has been played out many times.

Pray for our country.  Pray for the church.  Pray that you would be part of the godly solution and not be seduced by the Satanic forces.  

See you on the other side.
