1. For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus -- 1 Timothy 2:5
2. One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. -- Ephesians 4:6
3. Have we not all one father? hath not one God created us? why do we deal treacherously every man against his brother, by profaning the covenant of our fathers? -- Malachi 2:10
4. And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is,Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord -- Mark 12:29
5. But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him -- 1 Corinthians 8:6
6. Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. -- James 2:19
7. In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. -- Genesis 1:1
8. ...have ye not read in the book of Moses, how in the bush God spake unto him, saying, I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob?-- Mark 12:26
Have ye not read, Jesus asked. There is one God. You could read a lot more, perhaps thousands of verses in God's word that clearly state there is only one God. You can count the number of true Gods on one finger.
God. The God. One God.
All others that are called God are false gods, tricksters and hucksters, liars and thieves, slanderers and murderers.
You'll have to read a nonsensical commentary or opinion to find out about the doctrine of the trinity, which is supposed to be three gods in one person, or one god but three distinct persons (as though God were even a person), because it doesn't appear anywhere in God's word, the Holy Scriptures, the Bible. A loving God does not cloke himself in a wrap of incomprehensibility. All of the things God has ever done or will ever do for man is open for those with eyes to see and ears to hear.
A man or woman can count on the one, true God, as well as his matchless word. If his word required commentary and decryption to understand it, he wouldn't be much of a God, would he? You can be certain that the Creator of the heavens and earth, the God of Love, the father of our lord Jesus Christ, has enough ability and willingness to make himself perfectly clear and understandable, even to you and to me.
One is better off reading what the scriptures say, rather than embellishing and altering them with the doctrines and commandments of men. Clearly, Jesus Christ (who many claim as lord and master) regarded the scriptures, the written word of God, as the sole authority on God and the things of God.
2 Timothy 2:15-17
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.
And their word will eat as doth a canker: of whom is Hymenaeus and Philetus;
2 Timothy 3:12-17
Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.
But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.
But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them;
And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
Can a man honestly say that he is diligently seeking God without having the proper respect for God's word?
