Subject: If God is all-powerful, why does he need us to worship him?

If God is all-powerful, why does he need us to worship him? What does our worship add to his already-existing state of perfection? And, if he craves our worship, why has he entrusted his message to a text thousands of years old, subject to many interpretations, not to mention much dispute, with no concrete evidence of any kind? If, as it is written, God spoke to people in biblical times - they had no need of ancient texts. They directly experienced God. Why can't we get the message the same way? It makes no sense to me that a God who can create an entire universe, with matter, energy, time and space so carefully crafted that intelligent life could emerge from it, would rely on such questionable communications to spread what must arguably be the most important piece of information in existence.

Sorry, I just can't buy it. comments welcome
