Look at what the worship of your god has done to you. So, to answer your question, No! MAGSolo's god does not deserve to be worshipped.

If they had a social gospel in the days of the prodigal son, somebody would have given him a bed and a sandwich and he never would have gone home.

Let us proclaim the mystery of our faith: Christ has died, Christ is risen, Christ will come again.

Lord I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof, but only say the word and my soul shall be healed.

what about your God, what has he done to make him worthy of worship? If you were trying to convince someone that your God deserved to be worshiped, what would you say? He came to Earth and suffered on the cross and died for our sins? Can you prove that any of that happened?

I appreciate that you have returned, snorider/MAGSolo. Please, try to post intelligent questions in the future. Is that too much to ask?

Well ive always been open to the possibility that there is a God, my stance has just been that if he exists, he isnt a god that deserves to be worshipped.

I have meet someone who says if they are mistaken and it turns out God does exist then God deserves to be punched and they will gladly deliver the punch if they ever happen to meet God. And it really did seem to come from the heart.

I think it's one you've really got to make your own mind up on, what does God deserve and if it's not worship what is it? Love, respect, mocking, fear, devotion, honesty, good behaviour, a punch......you take your pick and place your bet.

Why He does not deserve to be worshipped, Magsolo? Tell me your troubles if you wish.

Does God deserve to be worshiped?

Sounds like a presumptive question along the line of "Are you still beating your wife?"

Do you deserve to be God's judge? Why?

I believe that any God that has the power to prevent widespread evil and suffering and does not do so does not deserve to be praised or worshiped.

Nothing says you cant answer a question like responding to it with another question

That must be why you didn't answer it.

Now, do you have anything of any seriousness or depth to say or is this sophomoric chatter all you have?

Please check the board purpose and discussion guidelines and if you find yourself unable to stick with them, then please move on. If you are able, then please stick with them and muster some common courtesy and respect and continue.

Well, I want to ask you Magsolo, why He should prevent widespread evil and suffering (on this Earth)?
Feel free to send me private message.

You are a poor steward for Christ my friend. You cant even answer a very simple, basic, and yet fundamental question regarding your beliefs. What light do you think that casts your beliefs in.
