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 2024-099: Cosmic Fun

What would be the fun of philosophy if you knew all the answers?  I think this is one reason why God would probably not be excited about philosophy because when you asked him what was truth he would know the answer.  Or maybe not.  Maybe there are some questions that have no final answer, but the joy and stimulation is in the discussion.  Maybe God has made us that way to understand how He is.  Immutability might mean that He is contemplating things that never can be contemplated even by Him.

Now there is a question, “Are there things which God has established, which even He will be contemplating forever?”  Picture God really enjoying long division and trying to find out the value of pi.  

Not being a fan of long division, I would rather not.
