 06C.   The Vain Or Worthless Worship Of God


06C.1   Is there a vain or worthless worship to God?  

The Lord Jesus quoted God's words written in Isaiah, declaring:

"And in vain they worship Me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men." (Mt. 15:9, NKJV)

The worship and service rendered to God based on the doctrines and commandments of man are vain or worthless.

06C.2   Are all  worship services which are accompanied by humility and sacrifices acceptable to our Lord God?

In Colossians 2:22-23, Apostle Paul gave this warning against human commands and teachings which have an appearance of wisdom:

 All these regulations refer to things that perish with use; they are simply human commands and teachings.  These have indeed an appearance of wisdom in promoting self-imposed piety, humility, and severe treatment of the body, but they are of no value in checking self-indulgence. {Or [are of no value, serving only to indulge the flesh]}  ( New Revised Standard Version)

Even if said worship is accompanied by humility and sacrifices—such as severe treatment of the body, such worship will neither be worthy before God or acceptable to Him if it is not based on His commandments.

06C.3   Can deep devotion and sincerity in performing their religious duties justify the acceptance of their worship services?

 What does Apostle Paul say to these people?

"I can assure you that they are deeply devoted to God; but their devotion is not based on true knowledge.  They have not known the way in which God puts people right with himself, and instead, they have tried to set up their own way; and so they did not submit themselves to God's way of putting people right." (Rom. 10:2-3, TEV)

Although man should serve God with devotion, he cannot justify his services if it is based on man-made teachings. Their devotion is not based on true knowledge - they do not know the way which God puts people right with Himself.


Man services to God becomes worthless when it is based on man's rules and commandments. Man must submit to God's way, and God's way is for us to keep His commandments.
