THE Supreme Being is worthy of WORSHIP because HE is plausible, not prone to human flaws, also because HE is IMMORTAL unlike mortals; why then do some mortals reduce themselves UNQUESTIONINGLY to bowing to what is LESS than them? –Revelation 19:10; 22:9
Food for thought: Why would mortals revere and worship what is prone to flaws like them and or are mere mortals like them, unprincipled, imperfect and in many cases VERY wicked, ‘demanding’ blood of mortals to appease their erratic emotions! This refers to the frenzied adoration of ANYTHING or ANYONE that is less than PERFECT!
Which one do you pay obeisance to, God or god?
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
