    God is only one. God wants us to only worship him because it was God who created us. This i believe.

    Do you agree or disagree?

    First i am atheist so no gods exist.

    Second there have been at least 3600 creator gods worshiped throughout known history. So assuming a creator god does exist then which one? Or maybe they all did a bit.

    And third, again assuming a god exists and it's the god you favour, how do you know what your god wants?

    I agree.

    Where I would disagree is in how that worship should be done.

    I believe the abrahamic and zoroastrianist God is the true God (the same God) in my opinion.

    Judaism is correct about that God is only one. That God is only one is pure logic.

    How do you believe that worship should be done?

    It's more about what not to do, and that would include things such as including intermediaries, traditions such as kissing the black stone, etc.

    I'd agree. Ecclesiastes says at the end: "Hear the end of the matter, the sum: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole man. For God will bring every work into judgment, with everything that has been overlooked, whether it be good, or whether it be evil."

    Of course then one would need further information on what exactly those Commandments are, but that is another matter. And even then what or who "God" is, in my opinion.

    I don't think God wants anything from us.
    I think we've used God to claim authority we don't really have.
    If you want to worship God, ok but I don't think it is something God needs or wants.

    Angels, saints, Jesus, your dead ancestor, anyone who's between you and G-d.

    I agree, also. I worship Yahweh / Jehovah (to the best of my ability - no one can do it perfectly).

    No triads or trinities. That’s “spreading devotion around”. IMO.

    Exodus 20:1-4 tells us He requires exclusivity.

    Only one. Deuteronomy 6:4.

    Even Jesus recognized that, at John 17:3. He didn’t include himself.

    If there is only one God and that He created us, why do you believe He wants us to worship him? That's rather petty when you think about it. What does a creator deity wants from the worship of humans? It would be akin for me to want to be worshiped by the bacteria that live on my skin because I am quite literally their whole world and are completely dependent on me for their survival.

    I have no knowledge of God well lets say I have no reliable knowledge of God.
    To have a belief about God, how many or who, I'd need more reliable information than I have.

    Jehovah has a funny way of not showing himself and not doing anything about all the heinous acts done in his name if he wants us to worship him. If he cares about me and wants me to worship him, where was he was I was being spiritually abused and tormented in his House? Why was I given nightmares of going to Hell instead of receiving the love I needed? If he wants us to worship him, why did I turn further to church hurting only to leave it hurting more?
