This is what my parents have been saying to me since my childhood.
I used to do it in my childhood for some material gains,but now I don't understand what does 'Worship God' means.
In my entire life this is what I learned from elders, preachers or from so called Godly people:
if I don't worship GOD, I'll fail in my exams.
if I don't worship GOD, I'll get no food to eat.
if I don't worship GOD, I'll get no money to live.
if I don't worship GOD, I'll not get a good(looking) life partner.
if I don't worship GOD, I'll fail in my life.
if I don't worship GOD, I'll will be thrown into hell.
So God Punishes me, torments me
if I don't worship him.
If any of the above reasons is true, then the very meaning of GOD goes wrong.
God brings rain on the good and bad.
God provides food to the rich and poor.
God is all good and treats everyone equally.
God protects everyone from trouble.
So if God protects me even if I'm bad and not worshiping him,
WHY SHOULD I WORSHIP GOD?
Should I worship God, because he is my creator?
Did he create me to work for him all my life. That is the only reason why I was created?
Then I would say
GOD is selfish
.He's treats me as his slave.
Forgive me, if the above text offends anyone.But please think. WHY?
Let not such an act be something mechanical in our daily life.
Let's find out the true meaning of 'Worship of God'.
I sincerely request everyone to answer this question. WHY ARE YOU WORSHIPING GOD?
FYI: I'm not an atheist or a preacher. I'm just a seeker of GOD.
