Mocking God?

"The worship wasn't very good today." "I get so much out of the worship." The worship is so much better over at {insert whatever name here} church." "I really don't get that much out of worship."

Ever heard any of these statements? Ever said any of them? Here is a quote from Steven Charnock to ponder...

"To pretend homage to God and intend only the advantage to myself is rather to mock God than to worship Him. When we believe we ought to be satisfied rather than God glorified, we set God below ourselves and imagine that He should submit His own honor to our advantages."
(Stephen Charnock (1628-1680), THE EXISTENCE AND ATTRIBUTES OF GOD.) Source:
