Christians Believe More Than That There Is Just A God

James 2:19. Christians believe that there is one, true God and they worship one God. History demonstrates that all of mankind has a predisposition to worship a God or gods. Prior to the birth of the Jewish nation, many people worshiped many gods. Even with the birth of Christianity, people continued to worship many gods.

Today with the spread of humanism and materialism, people continue to worship many "gods" or idols. In this case, the "gods" are physical objects (materialism) or people themselves (humanism). With humanism we basically worship mankind and with materialism we worship material possessions. With these philosophies we can worship a car one day and next be glorying in our own accomplishments or in someone else's skills. With Christianity there is only one God. Christians put the one and true God above all things, ideas, experiences, and persons at all times and in all circumstances.

Now at the same time, believing in one God does not make you a Christian. It is only one of the first steps. The Devil believes there is one God as well (James 2:19, "Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble"). This scripture should be a wake-up call to many people that say they believe in God and think that they are a Christian. Jesus teaches us that there is more to being a Christian than just saying you believe in God. Find out more about What Christians believe.
