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 2024-052: Jeremiah Goes Trans

There are certain things that have always been accepted as leg pulling.  Remember the snipe hunts organized on Spin and Marty of the Mickey Mouse Club?  We used to do that at camps and it was amazing how often it worked.  Have you ever sent someone after a left-handed monkey wrench?  I know someone who was sent out for headlight oil, and he went.  The current idea that men can have babies and monthly periods should be in that genre of entertaining tall tales.  The problem is there seem to be people who believe it.

We are being told that men can have babies.  What you may not know is that the idea is not original for the woke college graduates.  Jeremiah prophesied this thousands of years ago,

(Jer 30:6 KJV)  Ask ye now, and see whether a man doth travail with child? wherefore do I see every man with his hands on his loins, as a woman in travail, and all faces are turned into paleness?
(Jer 30:7 KJV)  Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob's trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.

Yes, you read that right.  What should worry you is that the term “Jacob’s trouble” is often assumed to mean the great tribulation.  In other words it is an indication that the end is here.

Many people speculate on the end times.  They set dates for the return of Jesus.  They write books and start new denominations.  Israel is a nation again.  We are waiting for the temple to be rebuilt.  And now we are waiting for men to have babies but I think it is presented more as a result of the tribulation than a sign.

It brings whole new meaning to the term Jacob’s Trouble.
