649. What is worship?
“The elevation of thought towards the Creator. The soul gets closer to God through worship.”

650. Is worship the consequence of an intrinsic feeling, or the product of education?
“An intrinsic sense, like the belief in God. Being aware of their weaknesses leads humankind to humbly bow before the Supreme Being who can protect them.”

651. Are there nations or groups of people entirely devoid of any sense of worship?
“No, because there never was a country or ethnic group solely comprised of atheists. Everyone feels that there is a Supreme Intelligence above them.”

652. Can we regard worship as being rooted in natural law?
“It is included in natural law, since it is the result of an intrinsic sense in human beings. This is why it is found across all nations and ethnic groups in different forms.”
