There has been a lot of talk here lately about "false gods". In a way, they are all false gods, even the one Yeshua told us about. But in another way, they are all true gods. Let me explain.
God exists in a reality beyond our concept of space and time. We humans live in a cage called here and now. We can not be any place but where we are. We can not be everywhere at once. And we can only be in one place in time. We can not travel forward or back in time by as much as one second. Since we are confined
within the cage of space and time, we have a problem understanding a being who knows no such restrictions. So we try to create a God who exists within our concept of reality.
To a large extent, this is because the religious professionals understand a basic concept of salesmanship. A confused mind will not buy. If you do not understand or believe a salesman's claims, you will tell him you want to "think about it". Religious professionals, like all good salesmen, do not want you to "think about it". They want you to take the action they propose. So they follow the KISS principle-Keep It Short and Simple. Instead of offering the full concept of God, they offer the concept the prospective convert is willing to
buy. Great marketing, lousy theology.
1 Corinthians 13:12-For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
We all see God through the dark glass of our personal experiences and understandings. The fact that these experiences and understandings are different for each of us explains why we have such differences in our concept of God. In the sense that these concepts are formed within our limited perceptions and
understandings, they are all false gods. But these concepts are what our Father has revealed to each of us because that is what that individual needed. So in tht sense, they are all the true God. The problem comes when we think that our vision is the only true vision.
Try to see the whole elephant.
