John 4:22-23

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 22 You worship what you do not know. We worship what we know, for salvation exists in the Jewish nation. [To truly worship, you must know God. Christianity worships what they do not know, and so their worship is gross error. From the word of the Lord within: "Christianity has no idea what I am or for what I stand. There are those who profess to know truth, only having knowledge of the Bible. It is no value to me to know truths and not know the Lord. Do you know him or just pretend to know him; to know him is to have met him and listened to him. Seek the meeting." According to early Quaker, kingdom-dwelling William Penn: "the deity Christianity truly worships is the god of this world, the great lord of lusts," who is Satan; and also according to early Quaker, kingdom-dwelling Isaac Penington: "in the apostasy, men have not known God or Satan, the light or the darkness; but have mistook, taking the one for the other, worshipping the devil instead of God."]

 23 But the time comes, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth for the Father seeks such to worship him.
