How many gods are there?
There is only one God.
Did you know that the Bible mentions the names of over 34 different gods? From Molech to Artemis to Zeus, it can seem like our universe is swarming with powerful beings capable of zapping us with lightning bolts! But Deuteronomy 4:35 teaches us, “You were shown these things so that you might know that the Lord is God; besides him there is no other.” And in Isaiah 44:6, God says, “I am the first and I am the last; apart from me there is no God.”
QUESTIONS TO TALK ABOUT
+ Why are idols worthless? Why is God not worthless?
