Does the Bible agree with the view that there are many acceptable ways to worship God

Report as

Not all forms of worship are acceptable to God. How can you know the right way to worship Jehovah? You do not have to study and compare the teachings of all the many religions. You need only learn what the Bible really teaches about true worship. To illustrate: In many lands, there is a problem with counterfeit money. If you were given the job of picking out such false money, how would you go about it? By memorizing every kind of counterfeit? No. Your time would be better spent if you studied real money. After you knew what real money looked like, you could recognize a counterfeit. Similarly, when we learn how to identify the true religion, we can recognize those religions that are false.

At Matthew 7:21-23, Jesus says "Not everyone saying to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter into the kingdom of the heavens, but the one doing the will of my Father who is in the heavens will."

This shows us that we need to truly follow God's word in order for us to be acceptable to him.

Well, the Bible says to worship with instruments, and dance, so there are some ways to worship God that He would find acceptable, as long as you're doing it to glorify Him and not get attention.

There is only one way to God...and that is to have a relationship with Jesus, no other way.

No! God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. (John 4:24 KJV). =================================Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth. (John 9:31 KJV)

That's not going to happen. He stalked me for days with hate when I first came on. I can handle his type of "Christian" But he's chased off too many coming to Christ.
Sorry Bobby. I didn't drag you into this. Don't hold it against me.

Peace be with the both of you and just know that you both have a brother that loves you unconditionally. I will leave you both with this scripture ==========================================Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 5:8-10 KJV)

Why will the mark be in the hand or forehead?
What does "the number of his name mean"?
What does Rev 12:1 mean?
4th Seal: How does one kill with DEATH?
What's involved with the number 666, what does it mean?
What 2 things are the Seals also representing?
What do the trumpets mean?

More of a man of God than youll ever be a woman of God. Telling lies and telling people the things that are not even in the bible like this This is blasphemy.

Suzie17
MY belief is this, God made man in His image, BOTH MALE AND FEMALE. Man was not happy with all God gave him so God took out the woman part, that was not satisfied, and called it woman for out of man it came. What comes out of man? Sin. Originally man meant godly and women meant worldly. It had nothing to do with gender. The WOMAN ate the apple. The WOMAN gets stoned. Rev "these are those who are not defiled with WOMAN" meaning worldly desires. Women are to keep their mouths shut in church. The man (godly one) is head of the house. God made us all man. The ones who become worldly/sinners and are the women. Hard concept, especially for the male egos, yet many do agree.That being said, my bible says man shall not lie with mankind like he lies with womankind... It does not say not to! Just not in the same way. What ever that means?? I truly believe people don't understand God. Where did Christ EVER talk against homosexuals?

Your diffently lost my sweet child. BetterRepent and dte Saved. Oh! that's right you don't think you can be sure of your Salation until you die right? You started this not me and people can see the hate and madness coming out of you though the post you put up. So sad. Good luck with your religion Suzie17.

That's what I thought. Perhaps you should shut your mouth like a sweet little woman is supposed to until God reveals things to you, not YOUTUBE!

Well, God mentions that we must worship Him "in spirit and truth" (John 4:24). His guidelines are written out for us in the Bible, so that we may follow them. Jehovah sent his son, Jesus Christ, to die for our sins, and he left a "model to follow his steps closely." (1 Peter 2:21) In order to worship God in a way that pleases Him, try following this link:

Christ is the only way to the Father. That being said there are many things people have misunderstood. No one knows the exact meanings of everything in the bible, nor will they until God tells us.

Many but not all. There are many appropriate ways and there are some inappropriate ways. So it sort of depends. If you want to worship God by dancing naked around a pole that might not be acceptible.
