Sure there is one GOD

There really is only one GOD

I have a hard time understanding why people feel the need to believe that there is more than one GOD. Using a logical argument if any one believe in GOD they should know that there can only be one. I will ask for you patience and to follow what I am trying to express closely.

If GOD is all powerful, all knowing and everywhere as defined by the people who created this language, then yes there can only be one GOD and this is a very short hub. The word ALL and they say GOD is Omnipotent, that means GOD has all the power imaginable by all beings in existence. They say GOD is ALL knowing Omniscient, that means that GOD knows ALL that there is to know past present and future and all possibilities to every and any level. They say GOD is Omnipresent, that means GOD is everywhere in ALL places every micro-molecule to the greatest and grandest of stars, all space and all time and even in the thoughts we have, there would be no location that GOD would not be if GOD was truly everywhere.

The GOD of existence is the same GOD for all the religions on this planet and any other planet. The people of different faith use different words because of the different time place and circumstances they originate. It is the words that we choose to express what we are trying to communicate that creates barriers sometimes. There are so many different words to express the idea of GOD that causes confusion. If you go back and look at the ancient Indian, Egyptian,Chinese, Greek, Latin, Roman, Mayan, Aztec, etc you will find that all these people had their own idea about what the "ultimate word" should have been at that time. Now at this time in in the English language the word is GOD and by the definition given there can only be one.

The different religions all have their own form of practicing their faith. We are all part of the supreme existence, regardless of religion, gender, ethnicity and even species, on a truly spiritual level. We are ll part of GOD or the grand existence that is a fact. This should be obvious from a scientific perspective as well as a religious perspective.

GOD is the creator, maintainer and "destroyer of all existence according to the scriptures that I have read.  This idea is beyond planet Earth, the solar system, the galaxy and the known universe (observable physical realm).  Since there are 7,000,000,000 people on the planet with different ideas and perspectives there is confusion and frustration.  Communication is difficult among people who speak the same language, what is to say about different cultures or religions.  When people are confused or and they do not "know" what the truth is they may tend to get frustrated, as an individual or as a group. The frustration will lead to anger, the anger to intolerance and eventually violence. 

I like things simple we all have the right to believe what we want to believe.  We all have the right to exist in peace. Well will all die, therefore we are all equal. 

Thank you for you indulgence.

I believe in one God but the one God is not the God of all Religions. Take for instance Hinduism who believe in many gods or incarnations of gods are worshiped by them. Chief among them is Shiva, a fierce figure representing both the creative and destructive sides of diviniy. Islam say they worsip one god but their God has no Son or Holy Spirit like the God of Christians. Primitive religion believe in a large number of gods, each reigning over a family, clan, village, or certain localities such as a river or mountain. that belief is called henotheism.

"But the Lord is the true God; He is the living God and the everlasting King (Jeremiah 10:10) And there is no other God besides me, a righteous God and and a Savior; there is none exept Me (Isaiah 45:22)

Hi Oscarwms,

I respect what you say. I just wanted to make what I was saying clear. The Hindus have a vast religion which I am still studying and my studies tell me that they really do believe in one existence, the Supreme Lord is Visnu the name that means God and not Shiva. Visnu has many "incarnations" but the original soul is the same being.

That is one versoin, another version is that there is a trinity Brahma the creator of the material universe, Visnu is the maintainer, Shiva is the destroyer.

The third version is Krsna is really the original God and Visnu comes from Krsna. Krsna is universal avatar in human form according to the Bhagavad-Gita.

To be fair to the people who practice Islam, I recall learning that the true followers of Islam practice peace since that is what the word is supposed to mean. That would logically mean that for the true followers peace through out existence should be the goal.

I am just saying that the creator of all existence by definition must be the creator of all religions.

The idea of GOD and Lord are two different concepts. When dealing with the Bible I try to be careful and question the person I am speaking with about how they perceive certain words. This way the sharing of ideas is clear, and more interesting.

I wish you well on your journey.

Hi there

All religions started in one place and all have a common Idol, that have been passed down through generations, and all of them have been False religions because they can do nothing for man, their sacrifices are dead and achieve nothing, not even obedience to the religion does anything for you.They are a waste of time, look good to the eye and seem to carry wisdom but they are empty, and many have fallen into these traps with their minds and eyes wide shut.

Hiduism,Roman, Egyptian and others all started from a place called Babylon. So if you want to realy find out what the truth is start at Babylon.

Hi Hoowantono,

I hope you are well. I do not agree with all religions starting in the same place. Religion means to realign according to how the ancient languages recognize the word.

I respect everyon's view on what they think religion is because I recognize everyone is unique and special. Spiritual being havve the right to think as they please, they just have to remember that for all thoughts and deed a sequence of events will follow.

A person can only know themselves, eveything else is faith and belief. The word know comes from the latin word scio which means to see.

I have read the texts and I went back and tried to learn some the original languages so I could get a better sense as to what was really being communicated.

I would not call a religion false or absolute truth. I will say this I am here and I am now, where I will go after this life on God knows, I will find out when I get there.

Best wishes.

Hello DArrell;

I believe there is a "creator." It is, to my way of thinking, "serrendipitous physics."

Religion has many connotations i.e. I am religiously involved in study. There are "religions" which recognize no "god." There are innocuous "religions" just as there are deadly ones. Monotheism happens to be the bane of human progress and viability. It's history proves that point.

There is no definition in any monotheistic scripture that defines "it's" god thing literally and factually. It is left up to conjecture. That is why there are extant over 35,000 differing protestant interpretations, worldwide, of the bible. Man is but an animal which thru the processes of natural selection, gained the anomaly: consciousness. That "gain" does not make man of any greater value in the cosmos than a "fruitfly." God/s? Pure human inanity...

thanks.

I enjoy the type of logical argument posed above. The characteristics Omnipotent, Omniscient, and Omnibenevolent (all good) are all believed to be that of a God. I think an easily raised, yet complicated question in all of its scope, is: If there is a God who is all of these things, why are there instances of "evils" and plagues, diseases, heartache, and dispair? An "all seeing" God surely sees these things and their eventual oncoming to us here on Earth. An "all knowing" God surely knows these things are here and happening. But most importantly, an "all good" God cannot allow such things to occur or else He isn't "all good" therefore, He wouldn't be the God we hav mustered up in our religious-based concetual framework. This poses a difficult question for many people.

HI Cig47433

Thank you for your comment. This is what my logic says "God does as God pleases", because of the assigned attributes. "Good" and "bad" are illusions because we do not know the whole situation. Some people may seem "goog" buta re really demons, then when "bad" things happen to them that they deserve, the observer may not think they deserve the bad when they really do, and vice versa.

Religion is human based, and spirituality is based on the true identity as a spirit soul, the etrenal part of all beings.

My question is who works for who, does God work for humans or do the humans work for God. Earth is on little planet in the grand scheme of things, that is the reality.

I wish you the best.

Being "all good" and "doing as one pleases" in no way mean the same thing. Destroying cities is certainly not a good thing. By just doing what one pleases certainly does not declare you are being all good; maybe "sometimes" good is more appropriate.

Earth is in fact a little planet in the grand scheme of things, sure; but the grand scheme is the question.

Religion is based on our own minds and imaginations, but isn't spirituality the same way? Spirits, demons...are they not all combinations of our minds? It doesn't seem necessary to include a higher power to prove such a thing.

A question I pose for you my friend is thus:

If "good" and "bad" are simple illusions, then what are we "judged" on in the eyes of God? I hear that all we must do is believe in order to gain access to Heaven, but how much? I might think my believing is substantial, but to my pastor, it may be rudimentary. Questions of this nature just need to be answered for me. If there is a way into Heaven, what is it? It seems awkward in the very least for the same religion (Christianity, say) to have multiple denominations all telling its followers different ways to get to the same place.

Hi Clg47433

I hope you are well, you ask valid questions. Only GOD has GOD's eyes. The only being that would know any of these answers without having to have faith is GOD.

This is what honsety sound like from this author. I exist here and now. I am part of something greater becuase I exist with many others. This planet is very tiny in the grand scheme, and it is temporary and so is everything on it that is physical.

You have to tell me what heaven is and I will then tell you if I like heaven or not. I have heard so many differnt versions. I perfer the heavens where I do not have to work, I just enjoy.

Now attempting to look through GOD's eyes, please forgive me but you asked. GOD is all powerful, all knowing, and everywhere, those attributes puts GOD beyond "good" and "bad", therefore it is automatically and error to think humans with such limited knowledge could ever know what GOD is thinking. Those attribute if used in the correctly according to the English language nullify the free-will argument. Why:

If GOD is all powerful, then ther is no other source of power.

If GOD is all knowing, then GOD already knows what will happen and allows it to happen, good" or "bad".

If GOD is everywhere, then GOD is in every atom, person, animal, star, galaxy, thought and whatever else there is to think of in this or any other realm.

All is a very powerful word.

GOD/Allah/Visnu/Eloh etc. will determine who goes to heaven and who does not that is the answer for all the religions.

What you suggest is simply Pantheism which dictates that ALL roads lead to God, which itself is a New Age deception, and the New Age mysticism is nothing more than a deception of the enemy.

Hence whilst I respect you right to promote it, I cannot endorse it.

God is not a God of confusion, all of those religions cannot be right, one must be correct, for if there is any higher power, then their MUST be a highest power.

Our life task is to identify what is truthful and correct and what is that Highest Power.

Of course we are free to follow lower powers if we desire, which is why the enemy created so many false religions.

All counterfeits are revealed not by their appearance, but by the ability to correctly spot as counterfeit, which comes from having clear knowledge of the real original.
