Should We Worship Jesus? [59:27]
by Sean Finnegan rated at 2.0 (7 votes so far)
Sean Finnegan begins by affirming, along with 1 Timothy 2.5, that the Father is the only God before delving into the question of worshiping Jesus. He covers the basic vocabulary of worship, various acts of worship, standard objections to worshiping Jesus, and limitations on that worship. In the end he concludes that Jesus should be worshiped because God has ordained it to be so, but this is not idolatry because God receives glory when Jesus is worshiped.

Carefully reading a verse is the only way to begin to properly interpret it. In this case, it is clear that Christís authority was given to him.
