Don’t just go shopping for a god.
Gods are not for sale.
I swear I’ll never treat god-names
like brand-names.

Source: Psalm 16:4 (The Message)

God is God. There is only one God. That God is Yahweh, the heavenly Father of Jesus, our Messiah. Consider this. In Psalm 100:3 David says “Know this: God is God, and God, God. He made us; we didn’t make him. We’re his people, his well-tended sheep.” This is a big deal and one of the major themes of our life with Jesus. It all starts with “Our Father, who is in Heaven, Holy is your name”. It continues with “Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.”

If I don’t like God, can I just go shop for another God? Our culture seems to be moving in that direction. All God’s are the same aren’t they? Shouldn’t we respect Allah after all? Jesus said “Don’t you ever read the Bible? How God at the bush said to Moses, ‘I am—not was—the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob’? The living God is God of the living, not the dead.” (Mark 12)

Gods are not for sale. God is God. Don’t like the one I have, can’t I just switch like I would switch from one brand of phone to another? Can I upgrade? Isn’t there a newer version ready yet? No I can’t.
