I think you ask an important question

and I upvoted you for it. Christians are not to follow blindly. In fact, we are commanded in Scripture to question our faith:

"Test yourselves to see if you are in the faith; examine yourselves! Or do you not recognize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you — unless indeed you fail the test?" 2 Corinthians 13:5

I see little difference between state worship and religious worship or any other kind of worship as far as how we value and act towards the object of our worship. The question becomes, in what or whom does a person place their highest faith and trust? The most common form of worship, IMO, is self-worship. That is, making one's self the ultimate arbiter of right and wrong, which replaces God with self.
