27 Biblical Passages
Which Explicitly Teach
There is Only One God

There are not a few ambiguous Biblical passages that teach that there is only one God, but many explicit passages that clearly declare this cardinal truth. Each of the following 27 passages explicitly teach that there is one — and only one — true and living God.  The Mormon plurality of Gods doctrine (found most explicitly in the Pearl of Great Price/Book of Abraham ch. 4 - ch. 5) contradicts this fundamental biblical teaching.

Please note that the Holy Bible (King James Version) designates the Hebrew name Jehovah with "LORD" spelled with all letters capitalized; Adonai, meaning "Lord" is designated by "Lord;" and "Elohim," is translated as "God." Thus, in Deut. 4:35, for example, the phrase "the LORD he is God," would be literally translated, "Jehovah, he is Elohim." (In those instances where Adonai is used as a compound with Jehovah, the latter term is spelled GOD, so that the compound name "Lord GOD" designates the Hebrew, "Adonai Jehovah").

1. DEUTERONOMY 4:35,39 — Unto thee it was shewed, that thou mightest know that the LORD he is God; there is none else beside him. (39) Know therefore this day, and consider it in thine heart, that the LORD he is God in heaven above, and upon the earth beneath: there is none else.

2. DEUTERONOMY 6:4 — Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: [Note in Mark 12:28-34 how Jesus and a Jewish scribe he encountered understood this text.]

13. ISAIAH 44:6,8 — Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God.

14. ISAIAH 45:21 — Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time? have not I the LORD? and there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside me.

And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these. And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is one God; and there is none other but he: And to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbour as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices. And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, he said unto him, Thou art not far from the kingdom of God. And no man after that durst ask him any question.

27. JAMES 2:19 — Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.

Some people believe that since men were created in God's image, men are “gods.” But Psalms chapter 8 says, “What is man, that thou art mindful of him? ... thou hast made him a little lower than the angels” (Psa. 8:4,5). The angels are not gods, neither are they the sons of God (Gen. 6:4; Mat. 22:30). And since man is even “lower than the angels”, we are certainly not gods. The Bible calls Satan “the god of this world” “which deceiveth the whole world” (II Cor. 4:4; Rev. 12:9). The Bible tells us that Satan is a god — a false god. The Lord said to “bring forth your strong reasons,... Shew the things that are to come hereafter, that we may know that ye are gods:... Behold, ye are of nothing, and your work of nought: an abomination is he that chooseth you.” (Isa. 41:21-24). It was “that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan,” who first told Eve, “ye shall be as gods” (Gen. 3:5). If we take the bait offered by the serpent to “be as gods,” then we too “are gods” — false gods! Jesus said, “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do.... When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.” (John 8:44). Yes, Jesus said, “Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?” (John 10:34). But read the entire 82nd chapter of Psalms and you will see that the Lord was not speaking of men as gods in a positive context: “They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course.” (Psa. 82:5). Jeremiah had this to say about gods: “Thus shall ye say unto them, The gods that have not made the heavens and the earth, even they shall perish from the earth, and from under these heavens.” (Jer. 10:11). Zephaniah said, “The LORD will be terrible unto them: for he will famish all the gods of the earth;” (Zeph. 2:11). The apostle Paul said, “For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,) But to us there is but one God (I Cor. 8:5,6): the only true God (John 17:3).



Jehovah or Yahweh?
The name of God is spelled with the Hebrew letters yod, heh, vav, and heh, read from right to left and then transliterated into English as JHVH (called the Tetragrammaton). In the KJV Old Testament it is translated ‘JEHOVAH’ seven times (and rendered ‘LORD’ the remaining times; see New Age Bible Versions, pp. 373-385). Each of the letters of the Hebrew alphabet paints a picture. The letters in the name of God illustrate the following:
J = jod =
It suggests a ‘giving, extending hand’ (Marc-Alain Oauknin, Mysteries of the Alphabet, New York: Abbeville Press, 1999, p. 207).
H = heh =
It represents an ‘enclosure,’ like heaven or a window (Mysteries, p.191).
V = vav =
It symbolizes a nail (Mysteries, p. 168). A ‘v’ in English is a pictogram of the chiseled end of a nail.
H = heh =
The H is repeated at the end of the name because “Jesus was risen” and “received up into heaven” again (Mark 16:19).
God reached his hand out of the windows of heaven , and we put a nail in it; having taken our punishment for sin, he has returned to heaven . The “nail” “pierced” “hands” of Jesus were foretold in Ps. 22:16 and Isa. 22:23- 25. (Dr. Floyd Jones has even suggested that the sign recorded in John 19:19 might have been written in Hebrew, “JESUS OF NAZARETH AND THE KING OF THE JEWS,” creating an acrostic of the name JHVH, as the vav for ‘and’ begins the word for King, melek (see Hebrew O.T. Gen. 14:8 for Hebrew form). This could explain why the Jews immediately asked Pilate to change it to “he said, I am King of the Jews” (v. 21).

Jesus is a transliteration of the Hebrew ‘Joshua,’ meaning ‘JEHOVAH is salvation.’ Jesus Christ is shown to be the J, the jod “the arm of the LORD” in Isaiah 53:1-12 and Isaiah 59:16, which says, “therefore his arm brought salvation.” Isaiah 63:2, 5 repeats this theme.
The jod, is a picture of an arm and hand, drawn in a tiny and compact form. Professor Ouaknin traced the jod from pictograms of a praising upright arm and hand, to outstretched arms, as if on a cross, and finally, to an arm and hand reaching down, like the letter -- reaching like Jesus -- to rescue perishing mankind (Mysteries, pp. 200-207).

In the 19th century, as unbelieving German critics of the Bible were hammering away at the word of God, they tried to refashion God’s name, JEHOVAH. They asserted that the God of Israel’s name should be pronounced Yahweh because, to them, he was nothing more than an offshoot of the pagan deity “Yaho.” Nothing could be further from the truth....

Who hatched the vowels in the new imaginary name Yahweh? The pronunciation, Yahweh, relies upon made-up vowel sounds. It ignores those seen in every pointed Hebrew Bible and used for thousands and thousands of years by both Jews and Christians. The Catholic Encyclopedia, ever ready to perpetuate any theory that discredits the Holy Bible (and its word, JEHOVAH) and promote their church ‘Fathers’ and traditions, reveals that the “cockatrice eggs” ? vowels ‘a’ and ‘e’ ? were laid by Theodoret in the fifth century. “Not familiar with Hebrew, Theodoret used the Syrian” Jabe. (The New Schaff-Herzog Encyclopedia of Religious Knowledge, Vol. XI, New York: Funk & Wagnalls Co., 1911, s.v. Jehovah, pp. 323-324; Vol. XII, s.v. Theodoret). Over 1500 years later, German higher critics and Catholic ‘scholars’ inserted the vowels in Jabe (a & e) into the consonants in JHVH to hatch the name Jahveh. This broke “out into a viper” called Yahweh, at the hand of English speaking writers, untrained in German and Latin pronunciations (Isa. 59:5). The Catholic Encyclopedia boasts,
“Inserting the vowels of Jabe into the original Hebrew consonant text, we obtain the form Jahveh (Yahweh)...” (Catholic Encyclopedia, 1910, Robert Appleton Company, vol. VIII, Online edition 1999, Kevin Knight, www.newadvent.org, s.v. Jehovah, quote taken from Section I, last paragraph; see also Theodoret, in “Ex Quaestione,” xv, in Patrologia Greek., (Greek Fathers, Migne et. al). LXXX, col. 24)

The “oracles of God” were not committed for safekeeping to the Syrians, but to the Hebrews (Rom. 3:2). The name Yahweh is founded upon nothing stronger than a tissue of error woven by the following Bible critics.

• Theodoret taught churches “the cult of the saints” and “supplied them with relics.” He pronounced “anathema upon Nestorius, and upon all who call not upon the Holy Virgin Mother of God...” He could not read Hebrew, but called God, Jabe. (EB, 11th ed., Vol. 26, s.v. Theodoret, p.767; The New Schaff, Vol. XI, pp. 323-324, s.v. Theodoret; Vol. XII, s.v. Yahweh, pp. 470 473).
• Unbelieving Bible critics, in the 19th century, merged the vowels in Jabe with JHVH, ignoring every vowel-pointed Hebrew manuscript and printed edition that has ever existed.
• Non-German and non-Latin speaking writers copied the Bible critic’s ‘w,’ not realizing that in the critic’s languages it represents the Hebrew and English ‘V’ sound.
