Stages Of Worship

538Question: What is worse from God’s point of view: to worship animals, stones, plants, people, or ideas? Is there any gradation in this?

Answer: It depends on the person who chooses what to worship. The difference between just picking up some statue and worshiping it or worshiping some great idea or person is in our development.

Why worship a man who was born from a woman and created from biological substances, exists temporarily, and does not possess unlimited power over the world?

I can admire what he has achieved in his life, his accomplishments. But still, this is my personal, very limited worship. This is not what is meant in relation to the Creator.

Question: But is such admiration still higher than worshiping stones?

Answer: Yes, a stone is quite different.

Question: So have we, as humanity, already passed these stages?

Answer: From the way I see how many people go to Jerusalem, worship the Western Wall, kiss it, put notes there, I do not think we have passed this stage. It is still ahead of us.
