The fact that Jesus is our creator is the main reason why we worship Him. "Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created" (Rev 4:11) "Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and ...

I think that Exodus 20:1-6 pretty clearly speaks to this (see also Deuteronomy 5:6-10). This is not specifically a Mormon answer, but Mormons also follow the teachings of the Bible. (Articles of Faith #8)

We don't know, and it's possible we will never know in this life. We know that (1) God was like us (a literal spiritual father-child relationship), and (2) that we can be become like him (heirs of all that he has, and joint-heirs with Christ). Beyond that, little else is known about the exaltation of God. But only an account of this earth, and the ...

Consider any reason a Christian would worship God: He created us. He (through his Son) saved us. He has commanded that we worship him and pray to him in the name of Jesus Christ. We know and love him. We fear the consequences of not reverencing him. All apply, and specifically to God.

The Eastern Orthodox church and the Catholic church are two separate churches. The Eastern Orthodox church is not the same as the Eastern Rite Catholic churches, whose bishops are in union with the bishop of Rome. The Catholic church views the leadership and the sacraments as valid, since they derive from apostolic authority and the Eastern Orthodox church ...

From a Catholic point of view, there is no problem with (a) a Roman Catholic attending an Orthodox Divine Liturgy and receiving communion or (b) an Orthodox attending a Roman Catholic mass and receiving communion. This is, however, restricted to circumstances when a Roman Catholic mass is unavailable. The Orthodox position is different; Roman Catholics ...

This is a question I've asked. It really caused me to wonder A LOT. But when I thought about it deeper, I started to form my own opinion. I COULD BE WRONG...but I believe that God, is distinctly One and distinctly three. Just as we are distinctly one and distinctly three. After all, we are created in His image and likeness. And God did say in Gen 1:26 "Let ...

The scripture says if we blaspheme the Holy Spirit we shall not be forgiven in this world or the world to come. Blaspheme means to speak irreverently of. Now worship means to revere, so if we are not revering the Holy Spirit we are blaspheming him. Now I think though we worship him, we are also worshiping God, however that does not mean the Holy Spirit is ...

Especially in recent years, I feel like this principle has been de-emphasized. Based on those quotes, it certainly sounds like, and reason seems to agree that God has a God, but that information is irrelevant to us. The most important principle is that for us, in this realm, there are no other Gods. I also don't think it is a coincidence that the ...

This is entirely possible, as there are many allusions to the angels and saints in heaven engaging in a divine liturgy, particularly throughout Revelation. They are described as continually serving God in a variety of ways. This is based on the description of Lucifer as a cherubim, which are associated with the altar and the Ark in many passages, as well as ...

Based on Satan was a cherubim, then yes. GotQuestions Cherubim/cherubs are angelic beings involved in the worship and praise of God. Who is Satan? Satan comes from Judaism; "Satan" is from the Hebrew word for "adversary." Satan was existed in the traditions of Judaism as the heavenly prosecutor in what Christians call the Old Testament long before ...
