    You can try, but according to the Scriptures, worship of God is in "spirit and truth" and one cannot have spirit and truth until one is regenerated from their sin-cursed state and indwelt by the Holy Spirit.

    Please do not make that a reason to stop trying, however. Sometimes trying at worship leads to true worship when God works through the acts of worship to bring life.

    Interesting post. I am reminded of the centurion Cornelius...

    "He and all his family were devout and God-fearing; he gave generously to those in need and prayed to God regularly.

    Yet, was not a believer at the time.

    A 'God-fearer' was a believer who had not been circumcised according to Jewish custom/law.

    How can you worship something/someone you don't believe in?
