  • God the Son did not demand to be worshipped while He was fully God and fully human on Earth as Jesus Christ. In the Old Testament, God did demand to be worshipped. In fact, He said that He was a very jealous God and would not tolerate us worshipping any other god. The New Testament Epistles and the book of Revelation, inspired by God the Holy Spirit, all demand that we worship God, either as God the Father, God the Son (Jesus Christ) or God the Holy Spirit. With love in Christ.
  • No and he was very modest throughout the course of his life; his followers knew that he was special and they had become enchanted with his specialness and his message of love and understanding that they were the ones that took up the stand to promulgate and propitiate his teachings. Later on it was the adherents of the new Christian faith who as converts had grown to a majority in the regions where it was practiced started making demands upon the native population, especially pagan to convert, hence to worship Jesus.
  • "God is not the author of confusion" says 1 Corintians 14:33. So to make sure there is no uncertainty or confusion about who God is He clearly declares "I am God" in various places in the OT. Here's how it appears in Genesis 35:11 "And God said unto him, I AM GOD Almighty". In HQ 20:14 He declares "Lo! I, certainly I, am God. There is no God save Me. serve Me and establish worship for My remembrance." However, nowhere does Jesus say in clear unambiguous words that he is God or that he should be worshipped. This confusion about the status of Jesus is entirely man made "For God is not the author of confusion"
  • No ,his ways were more attraction than promotion.He spoke undeniable truth that could not be ignored. You are one of God's children or you weren't it was completely your decision .
  • No but he did accept it!
  • Demand? No.
  • Well, let's look at it this way. If you don't worship the Trinity and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, et cetera, you're damned to Hell. If you do however, then you go to a suposed Paradise. While I don't think he directly demanded it,(Unlike his father... well, Jesus is God... so... he is is father, but nevermind that, his father demanded you worship him, otherwise you'd burn) if you don't you're going to Hell. So worship or burn... not a demand, more of a threat.
  • The Bible never states we should worship Jesus. And, there are numerous times where Jesus said all praise should go to God alone. Look at Matthew 4:10. Satan challenges Jesus to kneel down to Satan just once. In response, Jesus quotes from the Old Testament.... "Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the LORD thy God, and him only shalt thou serve" The verse quoted by Jesus was from Deuteronomy, where many Bibles strip out the name of God, replacing it with 'LORD' (in all caps). The proper translation of that verse reads: "You shall fear only Jehovah your God; and you shall worship Him and swear by His name" Yes, the Bible is quite clear on who it is that deserves worship. Read Hebrews 1 if you want to know how highly Jehovah thinks of his son Jesus. Any common sense read of the Bible makes it clear that they are distinct beings and it is God, Jehovah, that deserves worship and praise. Not Jesus, Mary any 'Spirit' or anything made up by man, such as the Trinity. As Jesus prayed (Matt 6)... "Our Father who is in heaven, hallowed is YOUR name..." Or, look at John 17:3.... "Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent." Or, 1 Corinthians 8:5,6, or 100 other verses...
  • I would not say demand, but He did accept it, and hundreds of years before He came to earth He commanded in the Ten Commandments for His people to worship Him. Back then He was called "YHWH" or "I AM THAT I AM", or "JEHOVAH". I hope that this helps. :) -In the Master's service. Thank you and God bless you!
  • No, Jesus never demanded worship.
  • Actually, when Thomas fell down in worshipping position before Jesus, saying "my Lord and my God" - who says he meant Jesus ? I can imagine that a brother or sister might say something that totally hits me as a revelation that can change my life, and then I would also fall down on all 7 (head, hands, knees, toes) and say the same thing: "soubhanAllah, Allahou akbar, la ilaha illa Llah" and I would still not be worshipping the brother or sister but rather our common Lord of course !!! Salam, Ghaliya
  • He demanded to worship the god...
  • No. Because jesus is NOT god himself and directed all prayer to his Father...ALMIGHTY GOD JEHOVAH... (Matthew 4:10) Then Jesus said to him: “Go away, Satan! For it is written, ‘It is Jehovah your God you must worship, and it is to him alone you must render sacred service.’” EVEN JESUS PRAYED TO HIS FATHER...
  • No Christ has the holy spirit in him and he wanted everyone to worship the father..You have to go thru the son to get to the father...He sits on the right hand of the father..Father, son and the holy spirit..The Word became Flesh..
