I for sure wouldn't. The God of the Christian bible is petty and downright cruel and would not be deserving of worship.
Some of the things he did in that bible is beyond disgusting and what I'm disturbed by is people who justify his sick actions. Take the story of Abraham and is son for example. Asking a man to murder his own son just to see if Abraham cared about him when God should have known this if he's an all knowing God.
Take the creation story for example. God set Adam and Eve up on purpose to fail, considering he's an all knowing God, yet he put the tree of knowledge here to test Adam and Eve with when he would know ahead of time they'd fail that so called test.
Creating the Devil when he would know in advance the Devil would turn evil and trick so many by stealing their souls away to hell once they died. Inpregnating a young, engaged virgin girl without her consent with his son, whom which was also himself just to send him here to die in a horrid way for our sins just so humanity could be forgiven and have a shot to get to heaven after death. In fact he sent his son to die us, but was the one who designed the failure of humanity in the first place.
I could go on and on about this topic and the many things wrong with the Christain God.
Even if it were proven beyond reasonable doubt that God or Gods existed, I would still not acknowledge their authority over me, nor their right to worship, nor their right to deism, because they had and have done nothing to deserve my deference, nor my respect and certainly not my love.
To be honest I would be highly pissed off at them, him, her, it.
Should they by force try to take control I would resist in the same way I would resist any invader of tyrant.
The existence of a deity makes no difference to my atheism, it simply chances from my doubting their existence to my doubting their authority and claims to deity.
This is easy for me. I'd like to quote Epicurus,
“If God is willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent.
If he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent.
If he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil?
If he is neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?"
I would not be able to worship a god that created all this and made so many people suffer and then required us to love and worship him or her, Which ever?
I am not saying how the Universe was created. I just know it wasn't the god of the bible
God never existed (in my opinion), but in a parallel universe where he did, I would never worship him. I'd worship General Zod before I worshipped God, and Zod was a b*****d too!
Anyone who can create an earth where my dearest friend dies from Musculardystrophe despite never hurting a soul, deserves nothing but contempt!
The comments on this topic seem to be along the lines of people who don't believe in unicorns debating their dietary requirements.
To address the question, though, I would want to find out whether everything written about Him was true or not. I'd first want His version of events.
Nope. No point - if he is all knowing, he would know I'd be faking 'worship'.
And anyway - how do you know that god is the good guy? Maybe it's satan who's the cool guy. His home is nice and warm and full of people who know how to have fun.
Send me to hell any day.
Nah. Too many good people suffer and die. Too many innocents suffer. Too many people starve and fall to disease. Too much pain and suffering in the world. He supposedly gave us free will, but why does he not intervene with horrific shit? Makes no sense to me.
Yeh god made trees before man He gave trees photosynthesis allowing them to harbor birds and squirrels,, Nice system, no need to destroy anything to get their energy from the sun,
Then the big guy says I will make man in my image and to hell with photosynthesis, I will make him dependent upon consuming live tissue to sustain life. Hell I will even show man how to kill. It is my image after all. Why , being the all powerful ,would I not give man photosynthesis, hell it works.
But in order to represent who I really am, we must kill living organic life, which I created. Wow is god smart or what
I just realized you said, 'would we worship him?" nothing about us going on to hell, but I still stand on what I said. Also, I wouldn't worship him, either. As I said, he made us, then Abandoned us, while leaving us in a world that, supposedly, he can control to his every whim, but leaves it in a state of constant war, fear, killing, and suffering; all the while just telling us to "trust him and his plan." And then, when we do die, and o to his heaven, we're expected to just sit there, next to him, and tell him how amazing we think he is? Kinda a low self-esteemed, God, huh?
"We were created to worship God!"
"When we die, we get the privilege to worship Jesus for ALL eternity!"
.......ummmm....Really God? You're THAT full of yourself?
