- The feeling or expression of (or to show) reverence and adoration for (or to) a deity.
I think most Christians kind of ‘know’ what it means to worship God. And when asked most will give a nice well rehearsed, textbook answer to the question ‘What is worship?’… something like ‘oh it means to praise and honour God’, and they might go a little further and say ‘oh yes you can worship anytime, anywhere’.
No Christian I know would disagree that worship is something that you can do any time, any where. Prayer, communion, music; all these things count as worship.
There are however a great many churches today, especially the largest ones, where actual worship is something entirely different.
This is a problem.
