“…We are aware that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is no other God except One. For even if so be that there are those being termed gods, whether in heaven or on earth, even as there are many gods and many lords, nevertheless for us there is one God, the Father, out of Whom all is, and we for Him, and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through Whom all is, and we through Him. But not in all is there this knowledge....” (1 Corinthians 8:4-7)
There is only one God: YHWH, out of whom all is. He is the One from Whom everything originates. While He is spirit and unseen to our human eyes, He is the source of everything that exists.
There is only one Lord: His Son, Jesus Christ, Lord of all, through Whom all is. He is the One through Whom God speaks to us and through Whom God fulfills His plans for the world and mankind. He makes God audible and visible to the world.
It is also true that “not in all is there this knowledge”. Whether we are aware of it or not, whether we know it or not, or believe it or not, the truth that there is one God and one Lord remains true.
May we be granted the faith to believe and the ability to understand the truth.
