Is worshiping Jesus sacrilegious?
I never understood how Christianity could be a monotheistic religion but worship Jesus and God. Some have told me that Jesus is God but I don’t recall Jesus saying he was God. I recall John saying Jesus was God, but I never could find a verse where Jesus, Himself, said anything about being the same or equal to God. I did find some verses where Jesus admitted to having the Holy Spirit, but he also says that He isn’t the first or last to have this Holy Spirit. So I’ll leave you with a few bible verses and ask you, is worshiping anyone/thing else but God “the father” sacrilegious if you believe in a monotheistic religion?
And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:
16And behold, one came and said unto Jesus, “Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?”
17And Jesus said unto him, “Why callest thou Me good? There is none good but One, that is, God.
Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but anyone who speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come.
Now there was a man in Jerusalem called Simeon, who was righteous and devout. He was waiting for the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was upon him.
And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
