    God comes in human form based on the prayers of some top most devotees to give direct experience

    Suppose some parents requested the management of a school to provide a park for waiting. The management is capable of doing so and it is the earnest desire of some parents. Suppose, there are some parents who do not like the facility of the park. They should not object those parents who want to use the facility of the park. They should also not oppose the management in the construction of the park. It is the duty of the management to inform the availability of the park so that any parent who ever desires to use that facility can use it apart from those parents who requested for it. If this general information is not provided to all the parents, some may ask the management regarding their negligence in informing the parents. Similarly, God comes in human form based on the prayers of some top most devotees to give direct experience. Through the human body the experience is not only direct but also complete.

    Such experience is not possible in the formless worship or in the worship of the statues. Such worship of formless God and statues is only a representative worship. It is just like worshipping the statue of the king and not the direct worship of the king. When you break a coconut near the statue, you can offer it by waving the hand and then eat it yourself. But when we break the coconut before the actual king, the king is fond of the pieces of coconut and will eat the entire coconut. When you want to avoid such inconvenience, you need not worship the human incarnation. You break the coconut before the statue and eat it yourself. But there is a fellow who wants to really offer the coconut to the king. He is pleased only when the king eats that coconut. He feels happy by seeing the happiness in the face of the king, while eating that coconut. What right you have to object such person? What right you have to object the king to come directly to eat that coconut for the happiness of a real devotee?

    When one worships the Father in faith, I don't believe it is exactly "formless" because you, in faith, know the Father is there, but you simply do not see the Father with your carnal eyes. And to worship a statue is not representation, but idolatry. The Representation of the Father came in the form of the Holy Anointed Son, whom we should keep our faith in, because He came and sacrificed His own body for our sake that we may be redeemed of sins. We should keep our belief in the Father's Way, because He was resurrected from the dead to eternal life, and a promise is made to all faithful that for them will be the same when they are called into His and Their own Glory. :)
