About the Book

True and False Worship When worship becomes performance, the sanctuary becomes a theater, the congregation becomes an audience, and worship becomes entertainment. The applause and approval of the congregation then becomes the measure of success. But when worship is for the glory of God, his presence moves in the sanctuary. Even the unsaved visitors will fall down on their faces, worship God, and confess that God is among us.

About the Author

My name is Rickey L. Smiley, Sr. I was born the 1st day of April, 1952. I was raised, educated, and groomed in the state of Indiana. As far back as I can remember I always had a love with words, and the power that they render, for good or evil. I personally have chosen the positive approach. My worship of the Almighty God is why I am here and what I live for. As the song goes, “If I can help somebody as I travel along, if I can help somebody with a word or a song, then my living has not been in vain.” And if by chance you have the opportunity to hear me speak, my prayer is that when you leave the venue your faith would be stronger, your hope brighter, your love deeper, your sympathies broadened, your heart purer, and a will more resolute to do the will of God.
