    I've never understood this.

    God is extremely mighty and powerful so He created the universe. But He's incredibly insecure so we have to tell him how wonderful He is. And if we don't, we go to hell, so He's petty too.

    God is trying to teach us to be happy and free. Unfortunately, few of us seem to live the counsel.

    He created this great and marvelous universe just for us.

    Is it so hard to say thank you once in a while?

    What makes any of you think God cares if you worship him?

    1.) Question is not about whether we should worship it, but why it would want to be worshiped.
    2.) God's a he?

    Worship? Hmmmmm.

    I prefer to be grateful to God and thank him for all the blessings in my Life. I also ask for strength and guidance and more understanding as I move about my every day.

    In theory I think God just suggests that if you intend to live a spiritual life that the one who represents a spiritual life should come first. I doubt he wants his ass kissed.
