The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully. - Richard Dawkins

What is worship?

What is worship, really?   In it's purest sense, worship is love taken to its greatest and purest extreme.  To be true worship, it must be absolutely free, just as love must be free.  It must be given in complete freedom by one being to another, out of absolute and undefiled love, without even the slightest contamination of fear, or coercion, or threat, or guilt, or selfishness, or greed, or jealousy.  Anything else is a counterfeit, and not worth having.
