Biblical Concept: Worship
Observations from the evidence
Why does God desire / require worship? – Creator, jealous, anger, fear, righteousness, glory due, holy, spirit and truth, spiritual service, volitional orderliness for freewill creatures, God is involved with His creation.
Christ and the Cup = worship worthy.
Worship is a fair trade for free will.
Worship is numerously (13x) contrasted with “other” god / gods.
Other gods: a worship tool of and for fallen angels.
Angelic Conflict simplified: You will either worship God or fallen angels.
Free will does not mean total independence, God is omnipresent. Compare Free Will Theorem and Sin, Eternity, and Free Will.
