I need God, but which one should I believe?

Which God should I believe?

CNN earned the moniker “fake news,” but what they really push is a “demonic left-liberal ideology.” They’re so into it they published a blog, “You Don’t Need God.” But if you insist, there’s a wide selection.

Given a long list of gods, it’s confusing who to follow; why bother if life is good? No wonder atheist Karl Marx spoke of religion as an “opiate for the masses.” Like Darwin, only the weak ones need God.

The most popular gods since antiquity

  • Oriental gods – In Hinduism, there are 33 million gods. Buddhism, Taoism, on the other hand, may have one god, but it’s impersonal and not omnipotent. Sikhism is monotheistic; their god can be described as an impersonal force.
  • Egyptian gods –  Known gods are Isis, Osiris, Horus, Amun, Ra. There are over 2,000 deities in the Egyptian pantheon.
  • Roman gods – The most popular are Jupiter, Venus, Apollo, but there are 67 different gods and goddesses in the Roman pantheon, excluding demigods. The Roman Emperors were also considered gods to be worshipped.
  • Greek gods – Zeus is the “top god” among the 12 Olympian gods of Greece.
  • Persian gods – Before the monotheistic Zoroastrianism was established, there are 12 gods in Persian Mythology. They worship Ahura Mazda, creator of all things.
  • Islamic god – “Allah” is their powerful God often mistaken to be the same God of the Jews and Christians—it is not. Allah’s teachings are incompatible with Christian doctrines. [Nabeel Qureshi testimony]

There is only one God, His name is Jesus

The mystery of God’s Trinity is a lot to digest, but the point is, God came down from heaven in the person of Jesus to save you. In a world of uncertainty, we have a “known” Father in heaven who we can trust for an “unknown future.” [Corrie Ten Boom]

Bible verses that say Jesus is God.

To know Jesus is to know God

It’s easy to say, “I believe in God,” but even the demons believe, and they tremble with fear. To believe God is also to repent of your sins, to change our mind about who God is, and seek to follow Him.

Jeremiah 29:11-13
11 For I know the plans that I have for you, says the Lord, plans for peace and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. 12 Then you shall call upon Me, and you shall come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. 13 You shall seek Me and find Me, when you shall search for Me with all your heart.
