Worship in the New Testament means a life of continual reverence and obedience in response to God’s ongoing sovereign presence …

Which might, at times, properly invoke emotions individually or among each other.

Pagan worship, however, manipulates emotions to invoke a false sense of God’s presence being “ushered in” by special “leaders” during special times …

Which is a concept foreign to being the church one with another, as shown in the New Testament.

Unfortunately, there’s way too much pagan worship, and too little Biblical, in our “churches” these days.
