People all over the World say that they believe in God, but do they believe in the One True God? Quite a few religions believe that there are many gods and not just one. The Bible tells us that there is only one God. God is all-powerful and all-knowing; why would He need many different smaller 'gods' to help Him rule the earth? The truth is He doesn't! He is the only God that we need! The One True God is the only One worthy of our praise. Every pagan culture that challenged God to a contest with their gods lost horribly to God Almighty. In both the Old Testament and New Testament, it is proven over and over again that there is One True God who rules over the world.
"They sacrificed to false gods, which are not God— gods they had not known, gods that recently appeared, gods your ancestors did not fear." Deuteronomy 32:17
"The Mighty One, God the LORD,
Has spoken and called the earth
From the rising of the sun to its going down." Psalm 50:1
"But the LORD is the true God; he is the living God, the eternal King. When he is angry, the earth trembles; the nations cannot endure his wrath." Jeremiah 10:10
"Do we not all have one Father? Did not one God create us? Why do we profane the covenant of our ancestors by being unfaithful to one another?" Malachi 2:10
"Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent." John 17:3
"yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live; and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live." 1 Corinthians 1:6
A large part of our faith in God rests in trusting Him and His Word. The Bible makes it very clear that there is only God. If we say that we believe in God, yet are bowing to lesser gods as well, then we do not really know and love the One True God. What have these other so-called gods ever done for you or anyone for that matter? The One True God is the one that we will all face in the end, and He is the only one that deserves our love and worship!
