Those who believe in many Gods, how do they behave with the one who doesn't answer their prayers?
For those who believe in one God there is no option whether He answers the prayers or not they have to stick to Him. But what about those who believe in many Gods, how do they tackle this issue? As they have many options to exercise?
Never worry about whether your prayers are being answered or not....because GOD is nothing but what we believe as a supernatural power, that aims at world's stability.
►Answering prayers will be done based upon your effort on the work you want to do, which you think GOD has answered if you do it by the right effort into it.
►So what ever you give to this world, you get it back, be it you prayed for it or not.
►And your prayers are only for your peace of mind, and fear to stop you from doing something wrong.
►Whether you pray for one GOD or MANY of them, it is certain that that you are praying to the core supernatural power which is only "1".
That's wonderful. But I want to know from psychological view point. Since one raises his hands with loads of expectations what if his prayers are not answered by the God whom he prayed?does he stick to Him or not? Because if He can't there are MANY?
Not all those who believe in multiple gods engage in prayer or selfishly ask things of their deities. It also depends upon the deity and their personality - you wouldn't ask a favor of Venus about matters regarding your broken car.
Most polytheists seek to have actual relationships with their deities, they typically don't simply worship and ask things of them. There's a give and take that comes with these relationships.
That's good Michaela, when one says relationship with God, the only thing comes to mind is of an all powerful and all knowing being.So the relationship must be beyond the boundaries of haves and have nots,how this with multiple deities is possible?

Of course my atheists friends will probably quickly respond with "1" as is their right. But my question is based on a recent posting to which I responded. It seems there are thousands of gods in some religions or beliefs. My response to a specific posting was which one...

Is there just one God or no God. I am wondering because my opinion is that there is a higher power and he or she came down to earth in a form that will make each ethnic group more comfortable in his form. I also think there is different point of views on religion that will benefit different ethnic...

Why can't there be more than one God?I'm a Christian and I firmly believe in God, but I do wonder why we always insist there's only one. Everyone seems to be at war over religion but remember the Greeks and Romans had multiple Gods. Who's to say that Gods from different religions aren't all real?

Should all the religious leaders be shut up in a room and not let out until they agree on how many gods there are?
