I Believe There is Only One God

Good Essays
I would like to begin this paper with saying that I emphatically believe that there is only one God. I do not believe for the health of ones spiritual life that entertaining the thought or existence of multiple deities is an intelligent decision. Those that believe in multiplicity of Gods can be found in many different religions including but not limited to Christianity. I grew up being taught these false teachings about who God was and how he operated in the lives of his followers.

There is a misconception among many Pentecostals about what most 'Trinitarians' in the twenty-first century believe. Understand when I say this, I am not condoning their beliefs or teachings in any way, shape, form or fashion.

If you read the entire Psalm is starts out as a Psalm of suffering but around verse 22 it turns into a Psalm of rejoicing and praise. When we know this we can realize he wasn't asking “himself” why He was being forsaken on a cross but he was lifting up praise for the work and prophesies that were being fulfilled right there on that very cross.

This is only a short abbreviated reason as to why I believe there is only one God. There is to much in the Word to ever convince me otherwise but with a little study and an open mind and an open heart I believe that the revelation of One God that was revealed to me can be revealed to any soul that is thirsty for more of God.
