Scooby and Johnb

 I didn't realize you two were old folks like me. Good!!!

 I'm 73 and sorta retired but do help my sons in their Construction Co's occasionally.
 As a Native American Christian we have always worshiped God in mixed ways. Some Church of Christ and some by NA dances, oil, prayers done and offered in many ways unknown to any white church.

 So what?

 God hears prayers sent to the same God but in many ways and languages calling Him by many different names.

 Heck, He even heard and answered Lydia when she prayed to Him on a river bank. Would like to know what she called Him?

So What?  hMMM. GUESS  it depends on how much of a democratic form of government we can inport into an absolute monarchy  that God will allow.

All monarchs like, want, and require to be worshiped. God is no exception.

God requires we love and worship Him, but, what we call Him and how we pray, standing, kneeling, laying on our face, doesn't matter but just that we are doing it.

We put the rules in most cases on what God will allow and of course, mans thinking in every circumstance is  that he is doing it just right.
