The philosophy of doing what seems right in our eyes has vastly altered the way christians worship God today. They rationalize that God will accept it, and because of this, christians worship God in ignorance.

In John 4:24, Jesus says “God is a spirit and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth.” Since God’s word is truth, so we must worship Him according to His word.

God has specified in the Bible the acceptable way He is to be worshipped. He is not to be worshipped according to the vain imaginations and methods of men. If we are to worship God in truth, then whatever that is not commanded in the scripture in our worship to God has to be forbidden.

Many christians believe that just any kind of worship they give to God will be pleasing to Him. Today, there are a lot of false teachings that are being passed off as the truth. Nowadays, man will not accept God’s word as final authority. Man likes to do things in his own way. However, only the Bible contains the only instructions on how to please God so that we can go to heaven.

God instructs us how to worship Him acceptably through His word in the Bible. In Ephesians 5:17 we are told, “Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is.” It is wise to know what the will of the Lord is so we can do it and be pleasing to Him and not worship Him in vain.

In 2 Peter 1:3, God says “As His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness through the knowledge of Him who called us.” God has given us all things we need to know that pertain to life and godliness so we can worship Him acceptably, in spirit and in truth.

God has told us how He is to be worshipped in the Bible. He will only accept that which is in accordance to His will.
