Not that any definition of worship can actually define how we interact with God or how our own individual experiences shape us, the real goal is that we get close to God. However, the concept of worship has been one of controversy in the Christian community since the disciples emerged from the Upper Room, in Jerusalem, over 2,000 years ago. We are as divided over worship as we are over doctrine. Worshiping God is one of those strange habits in the Christian world that believers confess to doing but rarely perfect. We even compare, criticize, and condemn who and how others do it. In fact, most people today are so far removed from real worship that we can safely define it as entertainment and fun for us instead of reverence and honor to God. The real expression of worship is real praise but how that praise is expressed correctly becomes controversial and problematic from decade to decade and from culture to environment.
