If we don't worship God, we will always find something to worship-- ourselves, money, sports, sex, anime, celebrities, politics, cars or motorcycles, religion, knowledge, life, death...
Until people really meet and know God, they will find something else to worship. This should not surprise us.
When we let ourselves become estranged from God, we will find something else to worship. This should not surprise anyone.
We were made to worship. Worship we will.
