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 2022-340: Which Chart Is Right?

I recently saw a meme poster that gave me an insight into prophecy.  You may have seen it.  It showed a scattering of disposable plates and bowls.  The caption said, “All but one are facing down.  Once you see the one facing up they will all appear to be facing up.”  

They were right.  It was strange and once I saw it I could not un-see it.  I didn’t spend a lot of time on it, just enjoyed the moment and went on.

It made me think of some of the discussions I have had with people about the end times as “revealed” in the books of Revelation, Daniel, etc.  One of the reasons I don’t spend a lot of time trying to figure them out is that so many people with more knowledge than I have written books about eschatology and as a general rule, they disagree.  Their charts are wonders to behold.

I accept that Jesus is coming back.  I can see that a lot of events are being forecast.  The truth is given but like that meme poster, most of them are facing down.  I expect that someday, when it is too late to matter, we will see the one bit of truth that will bring it all into alignment.  Until then it is just mystery on top of mystery except for one fact anyone can see:  You need to be ready.

So have fun interpreting.  Have your own theories and be convinced that you have cracked the code.  Know the date but be ready in case you are wrong.  I plan on being ready whether you are right or wrong.  Meanwhile I remind myself that even a broken clock is right twice a day but I don’t need a broken clock to tell if it is day or night.
