How do Christians know that there is only one god?

God
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uLpiHd5jg0E&ab_channel=SEEKComm In the previous video, we established that there has to be a God because the nature of our universe and our human predicament points to the existence of God. However, while God may exist, how do you know that he is the only one? What if he had a team where they all have equal power? For instance, maybe one God could be in charge of the skies or another could be in charge of the seas and so on and so forth. Are there multiple gods or is there only one God? That is our topic for today. How do Christians know that there is only one God? We'll be breaking this question into three sub questions.  What characteristics of the universe point to only one God? What characteristics…

How could a loving God send bears to maul children?

God
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BGBH_Qe5VAQ Atheists point out that Elijah was on his way to a certain city and a bunch of small children came out and started mocking the Prophet “Hey old bald head, why don't you go up” and the old man had a temper tantrum and he put a curse on these little kids and God decided to bring a couple of wild bears over the woods and to maul all these little kids and kill them. What a cruel God. What kind of a God would do a thing like that? The nation was in a very perilous place. They still worshiped Baal in many parts of Israel. This Prophet’s word needed to be taken dead serious because the whole nation's existence hung in the balance.  2 Kings 2:23 Then…

Where Is God When It Hurts?

God
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9SG_1lIw_rI Where is God when it hurts, I mean when it really hurts, when it hurts so bad you can't catch your breath, when it hurts so bad you think your friends can't understand or your spouse can’t understand and maybe even God Himself doesn't get it either? Where's God then? If you've suffered like that, you're not alone. Even Jesus himself has suffered that much. Do you remember when he was on the cross, he was beaten and left for dead, he was bleeding to death and literally suffocating and he looked up to heaven, he cried out “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” Theologians for the last 2,000 years have done a good job in unpacking what that meant spiritually and theologically. But I'll tell…

Did God create sicknesses?

God
https://youtu.be/JNyY32bKflE We learn the first reason that sicknesses and diseases exist in the world from Genesis and from Romans. In Genesis 1, we see that God created all of creation, and we see that seven times He called His creation "good" or "very good." However, things changed when Adam sinned. in Genesis 3:17 it says, "And to Adam he said, 'Because you have listened to the voice of your wife and have eaten of the tree of which I commanded you, "You shall not eat of it," cursed is the ground because of you; in pain you shall eat of it all the days of your life.'" and in Romans 8:20-21 Paul writes, "For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected it, in…

Why does God kill innocent people in the Old Testament?

God
https://youtu.be/G3xhEwzUgDQ How can God order the genocide or the killing or the wiping out of a complete nation, including babies and women and seemingly innocent children. This idea comes from several passages in the Old Testament one of which is found in 1 Samuel 15:3 which reads “Now go and strike Amalek and devote to destruction all that they have. Do not spare them but kill both man and woman, child and infant, ox and sheep, camel and donkey.” There are several things here that we need to address. We need to understand that these nations were extremely wicked. They weret involved in things such as bestiality, incest, child sacrifice, sacrificing their children in the fire and so God knew that these nations were very wicked. In his sovereignty, he…

Are Allah and the God of Christianity the Same?

God
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m0jDTFyHluw Hey guys. It's Nabeel Qureshi. I get a lot of questions about Islam and Christianity and I'm hoping to answer a few the most common ones today. One of the most common questions I get is whether Allah and the God of Christianity are the same? It's an interesting question because we believe as monotheists that there is only one God and so the one God who exists, who created all people is listening to all people when they pray. He knows who they are by name. He designed them and so when people pray, no matter to whom they're praying, there is one God who is listening. But is that one God the Islamic conception or the Christian conception? Here's the point that I want to make. The…

Is ANTHROPOMORPHISM in the Bible?

God
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sdWX6sw8IAw Today we're going to look at the word “anthropomorphism”. What is anthropomorphism and why is it a church word? Let's first define what it means. To start, let's look at the origin of the word. The prefix comes from the Greek word “anthropos” which means “human” and the root comes from the Greek word “morphe” which means “form”. So what does this word actually mean? Webster's Dictionary describes anthropomorphism as an interpretation of what is not human or personal in terms of human or personal characteristics. Here's an example. Let's look at my favorite video game character Sonic the Hedgehog. He's a hedgehog right? But what's different about him from normal hedgehogs, besides the fact that he's blue, he has more human-like arms and legs, human hands and feet…

The Trinity in the New Testament

God
https://youtu.be/OaXjVU05odE Many skeptics are constantly telling me that there is no teaching of the Trinity in the New Testament. And as a Christian when I hear this, I just roll my eyes. Saying the Trinity is not in the Bible is like saying your car doesn't have an engine. Just open it up and you'll see that it's in there. So in this video I'm going to point out the obvious. There are a few objections made by Unitarians that the Trinity is not in a New Testament. The biggest objection I hear from Unitarians is that the Bible never says the word “Trinity”. Well the Bible never says the word “omnipresent” either but no one claims that means the Bible says God isn't. The Bible never says the word…

What’s wrong with Oneness Pentecostalism?

God
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=USMFRcJ7X5w The Bible teaches that God exists in multiple Persons. Gen 19:24 Then the Lord (Yahweh) rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah—from the Lord (Yahweh) out of the heavens. Both Persons have the name Yahweh. Gen 3: 22 And the Lord God said, “The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. The phrase “one of us” makes no sense if God is only one Person. John 1: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. Two distinct Persons referred to as God. Matt 3:16 As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove…
