One God, Not Many
1 Timothy 2:5-6 (KJB) For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; 6 Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.
There is a significant difference between a God who is alive and a multitude of dead and dormant gods.
First, notice the little “g” and the capital “G” in the spelling. This capitalization is of great importance for it implies His position above all other things, creatures, and people. Yes, God is God above all other things. He is Lord of mankind, animal, and of this earth. His Son Jesus Christ serves as the mediator between mankind and God, while God’s Spirit is alive and kicking inside the softened heart of every child of God.
A Polytheist is a person who believes that there are multiple gods. They insist that God exists in the plants, trees. The moons, or whatever object they choose to admire and worship. They find god in many inanimate objects or places, of which none of them are living.
A Biblicist, or one who believes in God’s Word, believes with his heart that there is but one God. That He is the supreme God. That He is the Creator, The King of Kings, the Beginning and the End. God is God of the entire universe. He is alive now and forever.
The God of the Bible is the one and only God since the beginning and will be alive forevermore. Those who believe in many gods will face the error of their way when God returns, and after a time all other things will be destroyed, and God will remain forevermore.
