Words of Comfort: Other gods.


In speaking of the numbers of “gods” that exist, Stephen Michael linked to a site and said, "It may take you quite some time. I will understand if it takes you weeks to get through them all, and even this is an incomplete list." In other words—the facetious question is implied, “Which is the right ‘god’”?  

Some tend to forget the First of the Ten Commandments: “You shall have no other gods before Me." There are millions of gods (Hinduism has 450 million). Man is forever making up his own image of what he believes God is like. It’s called “idolatry,” and the reason it’s attractive is that a false god doesn’t have a moral dictate. The Bible says that idols are dumb and so are those who create them. There is only one Creator, and He's the One we must face on Judgment Day. We will either face Him in mercy (trusting in Jesus) or in wrath (dying in our sins).
