Is there any other God?

Many gods, many lords, but there is no other God like Yahweh, "For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,) But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him" 1 Corinthians 8:5-6 KJV

According to some people, a god is anything that is revered as divine or sacred, no wonder some animals and people are worshipped, and there are numerous gods, both in heaven and on earth. But we Christians know, that there is only one God, the Father, who created all things and made us to be his own, whose real name is Yahweh; and one Lord Jesus Christ, who made everything and gives us life.

What’s an idol?

An idol is any of these man-made gods, that are worshipped, venerated and revered instead of worshipping the one and only true God. Several of them are concepts developed by various philosophers to drag you into worshiping the devil.

Apostle Paul says, "we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is none other God but one" 1 Corinthians 8:4. However, some Christians don't realize this.

Now concerning things offered to idols, hear this, "food does not commend us to God; for neither if we eat are we the better, nor if we do not eat are we the worse" 1 Corinthians 8:8. "For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost" Romans 14:17.

But, Paul says, I’ll not eat food offered to idols lest a brother who is weak may see me eating, and my freedom will make a brother perish, for whom Christ died, for why should the liberty of yours become a stumbling block to those who are weak?

Then he said, "if anyone thinks that he knows anything, he knows nothing yet as he ought to know. But if anyone loves God, this one is known by Him" 1 Corinthians 8:2-3. What makes us feel important? It is doing what is really needed, to build the church in love, and the person who truly loves God is the one who is open to God's knowledge.

The weapons of our warfare!

"And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong" 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 KJV

The weapons of our warfare are mighty through God, they are in the simplicity of Christ, in the fruit of the Spirit; "love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law" Galatians 5:22-23.

"If I must needs glory, I will glory of the things which concern mine infirmities" 2 Corinthians 11:30. "So that we ourselves glory in you in the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that ye endure: Which is a manifest token of the righteous judgment of God, that ye m…

Contend for the Faith!

You’re in Jesus Christ as God’s plan of salvation for you;
He called you, and you said yes in Jesus, wherein you are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved. In him is God’s mercy, and peace, and love multiplied towards you.
You are sanctified and preserved in Christ by God the Father, and not you alone, it’s a common salvation - it is the case throughout the world. The whole world is going after him. What happened to me happened also to you and to all who believe in God through Christ around the world.
Here is why God chose you, "that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints" Jude 1:3.
We earnestly contend for the faith,  [or defend] the common salvation, that it remains the same as it was first delivered.
"For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ."…

Pursue love, and desire spiritual gifts!

Pursue love for if you don't love, you’re nothing; love the brotherhood!

No matter what you say, what you believe, and what you do, you’re nothing without love.

" Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away" 1 Corinthians 13:8. Yes all these will someday come to an end, but love goes on forever, "And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity" 1 Corinthians 13:13.

If you didn’t love others, with all that you do, you would only be making noise.

"Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things" 1 Corinthians 13:4-7. With this we know we lov…
