I know and I like that, so do I.<quoted text>
Not going to worship anything that sits on a throne and says " worship me or you will be tortured forever"
I have my standards ya know
But then, so does God.
Perhaps it's the definition and interpretation of the word "worship" that promises independence.
Honestly- the better you get at anything, would you rather people follow your example or just stay the same while following you around to kiss your ass.
How like our Lord are we all to become?
Historically, it's people doing the torturing, even when it's God being judged.(or judging.)
