ONE GOD OR A TRINITY?

The One True GodIntroduction

When we open God’s book the Bible, we read how important it is to have a correct understanding of who God really is, and who Jesus really is. It is so important that Jesus tells us that our salvation depends on it:

"And this is life eternal, that they might know You the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent." (John 17:3)

What does the Bible teach about God?

From the first book to the last, the Bible tells us that God is one God, and there are no other gods besides Him.

Thousands of years ago, God spoke to Israel by Moses, the man who led them out of Egypt:

"Hear O Israel: the LORD our God is one LORD: and you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might." (Deuteronomy 6:4-5)

Later King David of Israel wrote:

"O LORD, there is none like you, neither is there any God beside you, according to all that we have heard with our ears." (1 Chronicles 17:20)

God, speaking through the prophet Isaiah, said:

"You are My witnesses, says the LORD, and My servant whom I have chosen, that you may know and believe me, and understand that I am He. Before Me there was no God formed, nor will there be after me." (Isaiah 43:10)

"For thus says the LORD who created the heavens, who is God, who formed the earth and made it, who has established it, who did not create it in vain, who formed it to be inhabited: ‘I am the LORD, and there is no other’." (Isaiah 45:18)

When we come to the New Testament, we find the same message repeated, telling us that God is one. The apostle Paul said:

"Yet for us there is only one God, the Father, of Whom are all things, and we for Him, and one lord Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and through whom we live." (1 Corinthians 8:6)

"One lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all." (Ephesians 4:5-6)

"For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Jesus Christ." (1 Timothy 2:5)

There are many other verses throughout the Bible that tell us that God is the only one true God, and that there are no other gods besides Him.

For a more complete list of references consider the following:

God is one:

Job 31:15; Zechariah 14:9; Malachi 2:10; Matthew 19:17, 23:9; Mark 2:7, 10:18, 12:29,32; Luke 18:19; John 8:41; Romans 3:30; 1 Corinthians 8:4,6; Galatians 3:20; Ephesians 4:6; 1 Timothy 2:5; James 2:19, 4:12.
