Precis exercise on “The Spirit of Worship in Man”

Even if God did not exist, it would be necessary to invent Him. Perhaps, that is true, and indeed, the mind of man has always been trying to fashion some such mental image or conception which grew with the mind’s growth. But there is something also in the reverse proposition; even if God exists, it may be desirable not to look up to Him or to rely upon Him. Too much dependence on supernatural factors may lead, and often has led to a loss of self-reliance in man and to a blunting of his capacity and creative ability. And yet some faith seems necessary in things of the spirit which are beyond the scope of our physical world, some reliance on moral, spiritual, and idealistic conceptions, or else we have no anchorage, no objective or purpose in life. Whether we believe in God or not, it is impossible not to believe in vital energy inherent in matter which gives it its capacity for self-movement and change and growth, or by some other name, something that is as real, though elusive, as life is real when contrasted with death. Whether we are conscious of it or not, most of us worship at the invisible altar of some unknown God and offer sacrifices to it-some ideal, personal, national, or international; some distant objective that draws us on, though reason itself may find little substance to it; some vague conception of a perfect man and a better world, Perfection may be impossible of attainment, but the demon in us, some vital force, urges us on and we tread that path from generation to generation.

Titile: The Spirit of Worship in Man

Man has in him the spirit of worship. He forms various pictures of God in his mind. Too much faith in God and supernatural powers make him weak. But some faith in moral and spiritual powers is necessary. It makes life meaningful. The man may believe in God. But he cannot do without faith in life and nature. Every man needs some God or ideal to worship. That ideal may take different shapes and forms. It may take the form of nationalism, internationalism, or humanism. Man has been heading towards that ideal for centuries.
