  1. Christians came later than Christ – they were the very people who believed that Christ was God. Former Jews and former Gentiles became Christians. For the pagan, the concept of the god-man was quite understandable, the son of God was an ordinary phenomenon of pagan mythology, but the prophecies that he came to fulfill had a secondary meaning. For the Jew, Christ was the fulfillment of the Old Testament prophecies in the first place, and his nature was secondary.

    Disputes about the nature of Christ were very relevant in the 2nd-4th centuries AD.

  2. Christ is known to have a dual nature – divine and human. They worship him as a God, but on Earth he was a man. And there they did not worship him, but simply listened, consulted, communicated, betrayed, denied, whipped and crucified. In general, they treated him like a human being. So there is no sin in worshipping Christ as God. And as for its dual nature, it is no more difficult to understand it than the dual nature of a photon, which is both a wave and an elementary particle. The church's teaching about the holy Trinity-Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – is also, by the way, quite difficult to understand, as is the thought experiment with Schrodinger's cat.

  3. The question sounds a bit strange. Jesus is not God. He is the Son of God – the second most important and largest person in the universe. He worships his Father himself. He listens to Him when He was on earth and prayed to Him.

    God does not approve of human worship. But not everyone cares. There are many Fan clubs. And in some religions, they deify people,elevate them to the rank of saints. Although only the Creator is to be worshipped and served,as it is written:”You are worthy of our God to receive glory and honor and power: for You created all things,and by Your will all things exist and were created!” (Revelation 4: 110

  4. Worshipping a person is a sin only if you worship a person as a God, but you can and should simply worship a person if he is worthy of it. What we see on the pages of the Bible more than once.

    Worship of Angels:

    Genesis 18: 2 – ” And he lifted up his eyes, and looked, and, behold, three men stood against him. When he saw them, he ran to meet them from the entrance of the tent and bowed down to the ground.”

    “when he saw the Angel of the Lord standing in the road with a drawn sword in his hand, he bowed down and fell on his face” (Numbers 22:31).

    Worship of People:

    Genesis 23: 7 – ” Abraham rose up and worshiped the people of the land, the children of Heth.”

    Genesis 27: 29 – ” Let the nations serve you, and let the nations worship you; be lord over your brothers, and let your mother's sons worship you; those who curse you are cursed; those who bless you are blessed.”

    Genesis 43: 26- ” When Joseph came home, they brought him into the house the gifts that were in their hands, and bowed down to the ground before him.”

  5. Christians always consider human worship to be a sin. But Christians can't help but think of Jesus Christ as God by definition. And by the way, many Christians may have doubts. It is another matter if a Christian stops believing that Jesus is God. In this case, the Christian ceases to be a Christian.

  6. Christians revere many saints and a number of great people who are not recognized as saints, and the holy Trinity is not shared by all branches of Christianity, but all honor Christ.

  7. Only people in power-Kings and Princes…The top leadership of the Communist Party, led by Lenin and Stalin-Khrushchev, and so on… they decided who their people should worship.Religion was imposed by force-clever-sweet and cunning speeches promising-nothing to achieve themselves-only to believe and serve their ideas and goals-a sweet and peaceful life-but only after death.Khrushchev-in 20 years-has COMMUNISM. For example-they worshipped Stalin and gave their lives for him -going on the attack-shouted-first for Stalin! Then-For the Motherland!My grandmother told me that Stalin was everywhere.Those who were against it were jailed.Just like in early Christianity.Under Jesus ,it was a Jewish idea for ignorant people and slaves.Jesus was afraid to tell Pilate and prove that he was the son of God. Now in Iran-ideological suicide bombers drugged-led by their spiritual fathers.

  8. Christians cannot doubt that Jesus is the Only Begotten God. This is written in the Bible. But God Almighty is his Father. Jesus is the Son of God Almighty.�

    And even ordinary people are called gods in the Bible. Here is an example:

    34 Jesus answered them, “Is it not written in your law,' I said, ' You are gods?'
    35 If he called those to whom the word of God came gods, and the Scripture cannot be broken, 36
    Do you say to him whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world, ” You are blaspheming, because I said: Am I the Son of God?
    (John 10: 34-36)
