March 17th Sermon: There is only ONE God and he just has different names RIGHT?


The Bible says there is ONE God.  But the Gods people talk about and believe in are so different.  One is involved in everything.  One never does anything but create what is.  One only judges.  Another only loves.  Are they all the same and it doesn’t matter what we believe as long as we believe in God?  Let’s see what the ONE and ONLY God is like and you can decide.
“Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.”

 (Deuteronomy 6:4)

 “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.  You shall have no other gods before me.”
(Exodus 20:1-3)
