Chapter 21: Of Religious Worship, and the Sabbath Day

2. Religious worship is to be given to God, the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost; and to him alone;1 not to angels, saints, or any other creature:2 and, since the fall, not without a Mediator; nor in the mediation of any other but of Christ alone.3

  1. Matthew 4:10

    “‘You shall worship the Lord your God
    and him only shall you serve.’”

    that all may honor the Son, just as they honor the Father. Whoever does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent him.

    Revelation 19:10

    Then I fell down at his feet to worship him, but he said to me, “You must not do that! I am a fellow servant with you and your brothers who hold to the testimony of Jesus. Worship God.” For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

    Romans 1:25

    because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen. (ESV)

  3. John 14:6

    Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

    1 Timothy 2:5

    For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,

    Ephesians 2:18

    For through him we both have access in one Spirit to the Father.

    Colossians 3:17

    And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. (ESV)
