There is only One God

IMG_0212
It seems to be an amazing fact that no one has heard about. There is only One God.
.
Have I missed a memo? While it may seem that Abraham was the first person to declare this fact, I don’t believe that his vision speaks to what I am saying. Abraham’s vision would become known as the Hebrew god. Granted, his vision of One God was very different from the norm of the time. Polytheism was the common practice of the day. The God of Abraham is not just a singularity, but also a God separate from the gods of other communities. So when you look across the landscape of the region, there would be the Canaanite God and Abraham’s god. That is two Gods. What happens you add the Christian God, the Islamic God, the no God of the Buddhists and on and on? Now, there are many Gods in the world.
.
How could there be only one God when the descriptions, theology, and worship practices throughout the world are so different? It is like looking at the same statue from many different angles. What we see and concentrate on will differ depending on which angle we view the statue.
.
Let’s take the iconic Statue of Liberty.
.
Would a person viewing the statue from the ground have the same view as a person viewing the statue from the air? Would a person viewing the statue from the back see the same view as the person viewing it from the front? Would a person who saw the statue as an immigrant in the early 20th century have the same emotional experience as a native-born citizen? Yet, they are all viewing the same statue.
.
I’m saying that there is One God. Every religion in every culture from every era of humankind has worshipped, honored, and delved into the nature of this one and only god.
.
I have participated in many a worship service that proclaims this fact, but do we really live from this truth? How could we kill another in the name of the One true God when there is only one god? In order to justify such violence, it would be necessary to consider my god better than your god. Here again, there are two Gods in the picture, mine and yours.
.
If we lived from the realization that there is just one god, it would not be possible for anyone to declare war for religious reasons. Ethnic cleansing based on religion would stop.
