GOD IS ONE AND JESUS IS HIS SON! When Jesus was asked “Of all the commandments, which is the most important?”[Mk 12:28 NI], Jesus quoted what God instructed Moses [Dt 6:4-5], “YAHVEH IS OUR GOD, YAHVEH IS ONE. LOVE YAHVEH YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND AND WITH ALL YOUR STRENGTH” [Mk 12:29-30 ET]. Over 3,400 years ago God had Moses instruct His chosen people this teaching and they still follow it today. Over 2,000 years ago God had his son Jesus share this teachings and state that it is “THE FIRST OF ALL THE COMMANDMENTS” [Mk 12:29 NI] and yet many who say they love Jesus ignore this commandment possibly because it causes confusion with popular manmade teachings. We are blessed that the translators and those who copied Jesus’ words over the years did not allow manmade doctrines to contaminate the accuracy of passing on the words Jesus spoke.  To say “… GOD … IS ONE” supports God’s declaration in the Ten Commandments “I AM YAHWEH YOUR GOD … YOU WILL HAVE NO OTHER GODS THAN ME” [Dt 5:6-7 NJ].  There is only one true God who is the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel and has a son named Jesus. Different languages may use different words for God but the one true God is the God of Jacob or Israel and has a son named Jesus. We only pray to one God and not His arch angels or His son or dead people called saints, etc.  And no they do not intercede for the person praying, as Jesus even tells us He will not intercede for us or “ASK THE FATHER ON YOUR BEHALF” [Jn 16:26 NI]. Everyone who loves Jesus can “ASK” God in Jesus “NAME” [Jn 16:26] without having to follow any of the many manmade teachings of the different religions. Do you believe God is one?
