    I had to choose "other" because my answer would depend on what the question means.

    If it means: "Can you truly say you are a believer if you never ever worship God?" I would answer "No."

    If it means: "Can you still be a believer if you sometimes sin by not worshipping God when you should be doing so?" my answer would be "Yes."

    In both cases, I am assuming that by "believer", you mean "Christian".

    A true believer will always worship God. A believer that does not worship, has a misunderstanding or is still an infant in Christ, and will grow into it.

    But a believer who has understanding or who is still an infant in Christ, and a believer who for some reason such as tiredness, worry, or wandering thoughts has times when he should be worshipping but isn't doing so, is nevertheless a true believer. Did the disciples in the Garden of Gethsemane stop being believers when sleep overtook them? We are not told that Eutychus was converted, but if he was, did he forfeit his salvation when he fell asleep and tumbled out of an upstairs window?

    Is this question related to "Can a person believe in Satan and not worship Satan?"

    Sorry for confusion - I meant of course: But a believer who has a misunderstanding or who is still an infant in Christ....

    You guys can make my head hurt.....if you believe in God how could you not worship Him.....all good and all truth, how could you not?

    I may be naive and I might be stupid but I sure don't get it:flower:

    Yes but how do you know you truly believe.....because you go to church? I know many who go to church but dont believe. Perhaps you were Believer Baptized...again I know people who deal drugs who were believer baptized. then what is your definition of worship? I view it as living your life in in quiet thanks to the Lord because He has saved me a sinner, who had no business being saved. If your eyes are open to that, your glad for every breath. Praise God from whom all blessings flow.
