Reasons for worship: a response to Bayne and Nagasawa: BENJAMIN D. CROWE

Religious Studies 43 (4):465-474 (2007)

Abstract
Worship is a topic that is rarely considered by philosophers of religion. In a recent paper, Tim Bayne and Yujin Nagasawa challenge this trend by offering an analysis of worship and by considering some difficulties attendant on the claim that worship is obligatory. I argue that their case for there being these difficulties is insufficiently supported. I offer two reasons that a theist might provide for the claim that worship is obligatory: a divine command, and the demands of justice with respect to God's redemption of humanity. I also challenge the soundness of some of the analogies they employ in their argument
