What constitutes worship?

Any other
examples?
‘All worship is a waste of time
because people cannot be sure
that God exists.’
Some Christian arguments:

• God does exist


• No one can be sure that God does not
exist
• Value in meditation and prayer,
regardless of the outcome
• Worship makes people ‘better’ human
beings
‘All worship is a waste of time
because people cannot be sure
that God exists.’
Some arguments for agreeing:

• No return of investment
• False hope
• ‘Better use of time’ – e.g. helping people
• Obsessive worship could be detrimental
‘All worship is a waste of time
because people cannot be sure
that God exists.’
Some arguments for disagreeing:

• Provides ‘space’ in peoples lives


• Prayer – problem shared, problem
halved
• Promotes community values
• Gives moral basis in decision making
