same reason why we dont worship christ's toenail its redundant. whats wrong with worshipping christ as one of the holy trinity?
I understand the objection expressed in other threads I've been reading on this forum about separating Christ into parts, etc., etc. Which goes for the Sacred Heart, Precious Blood, Holy Toenail, etc.
But I really don't see how this applies to the Christ the King. Because it is the celebration of Christ with special reference to one of His titles.
I was going through the Divine Mercy thread and ozgeorge remarked that worship of "Jesus, the Divine Mercy" was acceptable in Orthodoxy. If that is so, then why is the worship of "Christ the King" not?
[Now again, I don't know a whole lot about Eastern liturgical (and paraliturgical) praxis, so tell me if any of this part is wrong. ] Why can there then be Akathists to the Theotokos venerating her under a special attribute (related to an icon, I know)? The Joy of All Who Sorrow, Inexhaustible Cup? Why isn't that dividing her up into parts? I've read an Akathist for the Divine Passion. If Christ can be worshipped with special remembrance of his Passion why not his Kingship?
