“The LORD said to Moses,
"Speak to the Israelites and say to them: 'I am the
LORD your God.You must not do as they
do in Egypt, where you used to live, and you must not do
as they do in the land of Canaan, where I am
bringing you. Do
not follow their practices.You must obey
my laws and be careful to follow my decrees. I am the LORD your
- Leviticus 18:1-4 (NIV)
Secondly, we see that God does NOT want to be worshipped in a fashion similar to how the pagan nations
worshipped their gods.
God clearly states throughout the Bible that
we should NOT follow pagan practices in regards to worshipping Him.
Note:So not only is worshipping pagan gods wrong, but worshipping the True God with practices
adopted from pagan forms
of worship is also wrong.
