One thing I know is that Bible is a book of wisdom. It has truths for humanity but they are hidden in it, and it is only the wise that knows all the hidden truths.
Take for instance, we were told in Bible that King Solomon built a "temple" for God. The term "temple" was used in wisdom to hid truth from fools. Every wise fellow knows that every temple (including King Solomon temple) is a building where gods or idols are worshiped. It means that people like King Solomon and King David in Bible were idol worshipers. Their temples are shrines, and the term "God" is one of the idols of old. It is not a mystery. Just a hidden truth in great wisdom! It takes a man of great insight and wisdom to know certain truths in life.
I do not necessarily need to worship God because every people has gods, customs, norms and culture. God is an idol in Africa, and there are many other idols too. It is a question of choice practiced by the wise alone. I mean it takes wisdom to worship God and every other idol under the Sun.
