There Is No God Like Our God

A lawyer asked Jesus, “What is the great commandment in the law?” Jesus answered, “To love God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind. And the second is like the first–to love your neighbor as yourself.” (Matthew 22:35-39)

Love? Think about that. God is love, wrote St. John. And God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, says the gospel (John 3:16). And the Lord loves you, Moses told the children of Israel (Deuteronomy 23:5).

Over many centuries, mankind has invented many, many gods; who can count them? But no one ever said, “Zeus is love.” Amun-Ra never expressed the slightest desire to be loved by the Egyptians, nor did his priests ever hint to the worshipers that Ra loved them. They would have thought any priest was crazy, if he said a thing like that.

Those things that are said about our God, the God revealed to us in both testaments of the Bible, those things about love–they have never been said of any God but ours. To say them about Marduk or Hercules or Quetzalcoatl would be absurd.

To say them about the State, the secular humanist god, would just be daft.

Our God loves us. The false gods don’t.

But then our God is real, and those others aren’t. Not a single one of them.

Walk in God’s love, and find faith. Walk in faith, and find God’s love.

  1. The bible describes the disappointment our Creator felt when mankind chose a course of wickedness, just before the Flood. He has feelings, just like we do. At one point, He was so tired of the disobedience of the Israelites that He offered to make a new nation, springing from Moses. Moses actually talked Him out of that plan, because it would appear that god led the Israelites out of Egypt to their doom and some might feel that He was unable to protect His people.

    All he really asks of us is to acknowledge and honor Him as Creator and the One True God and to show love to our neighbor. We have incredible latitude within these boundaries. He wants us to be happy and to enjoy the goodness of life.

  2. I never hear about Islam’s Allah being associated with love. The think that blows my mind the most about Evolutionists/Atheists is their having no answer to how we became persons. We all partake of the genius of the human race. Being a human being is so amazing, so just think how amazing is the Creator of man. The Bible says that believers will become like the angels. Life is great, but eternal life is even greater!!
