YOU MUST KNOW GOD BEFORE YOU CAN WORSHIP
If you know God rightly, you will worship Him in a manner pleasing to Him.
If you know Him wrongly, you will worship Him in a manner displeasing to Him.
No one really believes that statues, where birds build their nest and
spiders web their traps, are gods. First, you make your god, and then
you have to clean and protect them?
Few realize that you must know God before you can worship Him. Many do
not know their God. A few, in the process of finding out who is their
god discovered they had the wrong god. A few, in the process of
finding out who is Christ, discovered they were following the wrong Christ.
. .thus conversion to the Catholic Faith. Those converted to the
Catholic Faith are converted by a process of reasoning, like G. K.
Chesterton and John Newman. Those from the Catholic Faith who go to
other sects do so because of a lack of reasoning.
Most Catholics are so without the benefit of reasoning. They are so
because they are born so, or simply want to follow the tradition of their
parents, simply compounding their errors rather than trusting in their own
ability to reason. You are Catholics without even knowing why and you
worship God in mass without knowing Him and follow Christ without knowing
