If there is only ONE God, Why are there so many different dogmas and doctrines?

    If there is only ONE God, Why are there so many different dogmas and doctrines?

    Why so many different denominations of the same faith, claim to have the true God's blessing?

    The reason you have so many denominations is because people interpret the bible  in different ways as according to their intentions on the use, situation they are dealing with, and different contexts.

    Belief in one God, Allah in Arabic, constitutes the very foundation of Islam. There is no deity except Allah. He is indivisible and absolutely transcendent. God is the Almighty, the Creator and the Sustainer of the universe, Who is similar to nothing and nothing is comparable to Him.

       The basic message of Islam is that God (Allah in Arabic) and His creation are distinctly different entities. Neither is Allah His creation or a part of it, nor is His creation Him or a part of Him. This might seem obvious, but, man's worship of creation instead of the Creator is to a large degree based on ignorance of this concept. It is the belief that the essence of Allah is everywhere in His creation or that His divine being is or was present in some aspects of His creation, which has provided justification for the worship of creation, though such worship may be called the worship of Allah through his creation.

       However, the message of Islam as brought by the prophets of Allah is to worship only Allah and to avoid the worship of his creation either directly or indirectly.

        Say: He is God, the One and Only;  God, the Eternal, Absolute;  He begets not, nor is He begotten; And there is none like unto Him. (Surah 112)

       God is He, than Whom there is no other god;- Who knows (all things) both secret and open; He, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. God is He, than Whom there is no other god;- the Sovereign, the Holy One, the Source of Peace (and Perfection), the Guardian of Faith, the Preserver of Safety, the Exalted in Might, the Irresistible, the Supreme: Glory to God! (High is He) above the partners they attribute to Him.

    He is God, the Creator, the Evolver, the Bestower of Forms (or Colors). To Him belong the Most Beautiful Names: whatever is in the heavens and on earth, doth declare His Praises and Glory: and He is the Exalted in Might, the Wise. (59:22-24)

    The same poison that severed Adam and Eve from the bosom of God is responsible for every evil on Earth.

    Ideally, there should be one church, where everyone searches for Truth. The writing in the Bible doesn't have it. If you disagree, please read 2 Corinthians 3:6, until you understand that Truth can never be in physical form. The Truth suggested by scripture is only a shadow of God's Truth. The words help to get us closer, but we must each, individually take that last step.

    The Bible was written with a great deal of wisdom hidden within it. The biblical literalists make a mockery of this by pretending the Bible was meant to be easy to read and interpret. That's both lazy and arrogant. The Bible was meant to be very hard to interpret. Why? Because it takes humility to learn anything, and humility is the very thing the Bible wants us to accomplish. Humility is the ticket home, but ego gets in the way.

    Ego has its own ideas of what the Bible means. All of them are wrong.

    When we give up our own ideas and accept Truth from God, miracles happen. I've seen dozens of them, but I know I still have a long way to go.

    I'm writing a book about my experiences and discoveries in the Bible -- "The Bible's Hidden Wisdom." This isn't a book that tells you what to think, but I hope it helps every reader find new and better ways to approach their own search for Truth. … /x/2790782

    Stop by and show your support.

    On the subject of doctrines and dogma, there is only one Truth in any topic. This new book shows how both science and religion are more compatible than you might think. Both of them seek answers from God and His creations.

    There are billions of people and myriad unique cultural and belief systems that have existed over human history.  Many preach the gospel of one true God, many others are polytheistic.  The one true God "dogma" is but one example of the scope of your question.

    God isn't the problem, it is human beings and their need to control or make a better mouse trap.  They get involved in matters of faith and manage to muck it up with ego, logic, and the need for power.

      I totally agree with you.  God does not and never will have a religion or preference in that.  Jesus neither.  Those who don't like the truth will delete whole conversation on Questions.  The thing is, you can't hide the truth for very long like that

    I answered this not so long ago. It came in a different guise but it is the same question. Here is my take on it:
    Life must be so..
    In a theological seminary, you will be surprised how different they can all be. Christianity itself has over 500 Paths and many are extreme and different. Is there a problem? No. In an orchestra the flute will be the flute and the violin the violin. But they make great music. The fragrance of the rose complements the daffodils. We are all different and at different stages in this spiritual sojourn. Even daughters and sons can have radically different views from their parents.

    One man is a doctor, another a priest. Variety is essential for God's creation. Sameness just does not work. You must have seen by now, that in this Christian section, there are over a 100 different views. You will serve some and annoy others.
    The drummer drums, and we will dance to the cadences of the music. The child will clap and smile; the red Indian may dance with drums and yet someone else, may sit in meditation. Variety is an essential part of God's plan. Ask the scavenger to stop work and in a month we will be feeling awful looking at our streets. Take away religion and society will crumble. Take away the God-men and we will go backwards. Finally, take away the bad stuff, and we just will not grow.  Know this, remain detached, and be free.

    There is no god, period. The sons of man were mentally affected by the ice age and  their resulting disconnection from the Spiritual essence of the universe caused them to create gods to replace their amnesia from truth. The confusion you see in most of the world's cultures is a result of the same disconnection from the Spirit so they confuse the Spirit and the Soul as the same thing. They turned philosophy into religion, came back into Africa and have corrupted most the of the keepers of the truth. Now Africans think themselves to be Jews, Muslims, and Christians and kill each other to defend their corrupted mindstate. How can someone who believes in a god kill, conquor, exploit, and destroy in the name of his god? Answer; it is a convenient excuse to avoid being accountable.

    Because that one God thought it would be amusing to invent so many stories and then watch us all pitch wars against each other to see who is right. Perverse sense of humor or brilliant form of population control? You tell me.

    Or humans could just be, well human, and subject to their own opinions and biases when translating even the simplest of stories and texts. Or it could all be made up to begin with. So many options...
