Why would a god need worship?
Assuming a god did exist of course, why would it want/need/desire/demand to be worshiped? All holy books speak of the need to worship god, those that don't will suffer torment or abandonment, but none of these holy books speak as to why the god needs it. A parent doesn't even require to be respected in order to love their child, only that the child lives a good and moral life, so why is this different for a god? If a god does require worship what does that say about the "mindset" or emotional quality of that god?
Any philosophical opinions? Scriptures would be great, if any exist.
