• I dont dismiss any God because i believe all relegions worship the same god but in different ways.

      I call it the one life. Every religion has it's shining stars, and those literalists that lean heavily on doctrine. I relate more to the mystics that have experiences in life connected to source without explanation.
      When Jesus Christ walked the earth, there was a religious group known as the Pharisees. They had built up a system of worship and believed it had God's approval. Yet, at the same time, the Pharisees were trying to kill Jesus! So Jesus told them: You do the works of your father. John 8:41 So Jesus Christ did not teach that all religions are simply different roads leading to the same place of salvation. In his famous Sermon on the Mount, Jesus said: Go in through the narrow gate; because broad and spacious is the road leading off into destruction, and many are the ones going in through it; whereas narrow is the gate and cramped the road leading off into life, and few are the ones finding it. (Matthew 7:13,14) Because they fail to worship God in the right way, most persons are on the road to destruction. Only a few are on the road leading to life.
  • Because my God is The Only God.
  • Because My God wants no other gods before me.
  • Because My God (christian) wants me to worship Him. Its about intimacy and relationship. He is God. There is no other God but Him. So nobody else should be in that role. Just like you only have one mother at birth. If I'm in a relationship with someone, I want the intimacy of that relationship going to me, not someone else. If I do everything for my husband and he gives all his love to the a chair and tells the chair how awesome it is because of stuff I'VE DONE, That's a problem. Same thing. How can you have intimacy with God if you don't know who he is or if everything you do is contrary to his character? God create us worship and love on Him, not other things that we give his place.
  • I dont dismiss other gods, but i will not accept them as rational or practical. My "god" is the Earth. Her along with the sun have given us evvery opportunity and moment from the beginning of time. selfish people want to claim a god similar to that of man created this for us so we would worship man. i worship things similar to Native Americans and Buddhism, two very spiritual and very logical practices. Every time man has substituted a false god in the role of caregiver, creator, lover, fighter, etc etc is just manifestations of what this amazing planet has given us in droves. Why worship something you cant even see or understand. succumb to the role that you need to please this god in order to attain a higher power, a more enlightened state in heaven, is absurd. I worship the place that gave us life. the place we continue to try to understand more every day, discover the wonders of our world where culture and compassion thrive.
  • He's a jealous God.
  • 3-29-2017 My God is the God of rightness. If you don't put rightness first, it doesn't matter much what you do instead.
  • I never dismiss anything that i don't know.Every religion seems to have those who are literalists and those that are mystics.
  • It is true that many gods are worshiped in the world. But that does not change the fact that there is only one true God. The other gods are inventions of men or are demons. Only one God created the earth and deserves our worship. The apostle Paul said:
  • My accountant insists my finances will only cover my own gods this quarter....
  • Ephesians 4:1-4 make it very clear that there is only one God that we should worship. John 17:17 says your word is truth, we must worship in sprite and truth [ Go to John 4:23,24 ] There are many gods, but only one true God, in Hebrew his name is pronounced YHWH and in English the most common usage is Jehovah.
    • Moongrim
      Circular Reasoning. Fail.
  • Why do you care?
  • There can BE only one true all the others that men worship must be false... How di you know which one? By scriptural standards... Would an ALL powerful God, who created the universe, not be able to protect himself from emotional harm? in insults... So the Muslim idea of men having to extract RETRIBUTION for perceived THEIR god... is like them accusing their own god [ Allah] of being incapable of fending for himself...logical ??? And the Christian God [ Jehovah ] has asked us to USE his NAME... (Psalm 83:18) May people know that you, whose name is Jehovah, You alone are the Most High over all the earth. (Exodus 6:3) And I used to appear to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob as God Almighty, but with regard to my name Jehovah I did not make myself known to them. He has had to tell us his NAME... And Jesus knew it. And used it.
  • I don't care for totem poles and other such critters
  • That's like asking "Why do you dismiss all other languages but your own?"
  • The responses that declare that THEIR god is the only REAL god and give several reasons why their god is real and all others are false are silly. There are minimally several hundred religions around the world and Christianity is merely one of them. Christianity is nowhere near the oldest religion and has no greater claim to be worshiping the only REAL god than all those other religions. Of course ALL the religions proclaim THEIR god or gods as the only real god. Every one of all those religions (including Christianity) are CERTAIN that, except for THEIR God, all those gods are a false and worshiping them will result in going to hell or something to that effect. Every one of those gods clearly has the same stature and all of them or none of them is the “real” god as claimed by each religion.
  • I dismiss the god the world because he is the chief of all liars who hates all. My God is the only God. Who is the creator of all that was created.
    • pugwashjw65
      Do you mean shown here...(2 Corinthians 4:4) among whom the god of this system of things has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, so that the illumination of the glorious good news about the Christ, who is the image of God, might not shine through.
    • Rick Myres
      Yes I mean Satan, the deceiver, the hater.
  • I ignore them
  • cause theres only one God
  • The Bible is a singular book....with only ONE author...Jehovah.... And it is very strict...It mentions Jesus and his father, to whom Jesus prayed. Making Jesus subject to Jehovah...therefore they are NOT equal. Yet Jehovah says to listen to Jesus...Mark 9:7...meaning that Jesus is doing his father's will. The holy spirit is NOT given a it is NOT a separate identity ands certainly not equal...It is Jehovah's POWER... And is described as either doves out of heaven or flames from the heads of the first 120 Christians... (John 1:32) John also bore witness, saying:
