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 2023-184: The Eternal Squirrel

What would it mean to speak of God’s glory as being impenetrable?

You can look at this concept from at least two perspectives.  A surface can be so hard that everything bounces off with no affect.  This would be the immovable object in response to the irresistible force.  Or the object can be so deep that you will never reach the other side.  This would involve the concept of infinity.  

Which would best describe God?  Both/either.  It depends on our motive and whether we can understand.

If you are looking for a foundation then an impenetrable surface would be ideal.  In regard to God this would reflect things like His power, trustworthiness and immutability.  You can build a life on His truth and be secure that the ground would not shift under you.  That is a plus in this life.

If your focus is on eternity then the depth image comes into play.  I can’t comprehend eternity.  It should be obvious that it is beyond my ability to grasp.  I find that exciting because it means that there will always be depths to explore and questions to be answered.  The word “boredom” will disappear from our vocabulary and if anyone uses it we will ask, “What is that?”

Maybe the big challenge in eternity will be trying to get bored.  That will be prevented by the Eternal “Squirrel” answered by the perpetual, “Where?”  

I hope to see you on the other side.
