It has been a long held debate on whether there is one God or many. The Abrahamic faiths hold to the fact that there is only one. This is why people have problems with the Trinity. Hinduism is believed to be polytheistic, though I read a piece by Deepak Chopra on Huffington Post where he said that Hindus believe in one God but they acknowledge all the false gods as well.
There are many gods in the world. Most of them are antichrist and don’t lead to the one true God which is reflected in those who walk in the Light and follow the Way. There are 7 billion people in the world and each person basically has their own unique perception of God. Atheists don’t necessarily disbelieve in God, they just reject the authority of the established church.
I wouldn’t be surprised if more atheists had faith in the Creator than people who sit in church pews. There are many atheists who follow Jesus. Since only the Divine knows the heart, we cannot judge who God has mercy on and “saves”. God is bigger than any religion.
People usually do their own thing and they always create a god that justified this. People have high standards, so they create a God with high standards, thus the need for a sacrifice. Jesus may have sacrificed His life but it was more voluntary than a substitutionary atonement.
True wisdom comes from a reverence for the Divine. It doesn’t matter than name, especially since names evolve over time and get corrupted. The Bible is a collection of ancient writings from centuries ago. Back then different groups were borrowing from each other; i.e, hebrews, hindus, egyptians, etc. We would have never heard of the ancient hebrew writings if some group called the Turkish Mongolians hadn’t invaded these lands and confiscated their scriptures and build a religion around them; first Judaism and then Christianity which was stolen from Judaism and turned Jesus into a god.
Jesus said only God was good. He didn’t claim to be God. But He lived in such close union with the Divine, being the chosen messenger for the ancient Hebrews that he led an exemplary life. No one is able to follow the law of God so perfectly so the next best thing is just make them a god and worship them; after they kill them and all the other prophets .
