The false doctrine that all of life is worship derives from a misunderstanding of Romans 12:1, “I beseech you, therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.” Some versions and paraphrases like the NASV and NIV translate this passage wrong. For example, the NASV reads, “which is your spiritual service of worship,” and that is quite an unfortunate translation. The Greek word for worship is NOT even found in this verse and was supplied by translators, just like the word “Unknown” in 1 Corinthians 14:2, which has caused lots of false doctrines as well.  The Greek word they translated as service is ”latreian,” which means service, and can mean spiritual service. And the Greek word for worship is “proskenueo” which, again, is not found in Rom. 12:1. Both of these words or variations of them are found in Matthew 4:10, where there the Bible says, “You shall worship the Lord your God, and serve Him only.” This passage clearly demonstrates a distinction between worship and spiritual service. Here are some other points to consider in deciding if all of life is worship: First, let’s go back to Matthew 4:10.
