The difference between God and gods

- Advertisement -

From Bridget Murphy.

YOUR correspondent John Heys (JEP, 28 January) seems to confuse gods and God, and kindly refers me to biblical texts which, of course as a Christian, I know only too well.

Therefore, may I also quote from the Bible – Old Testament, Exodus 1, ch 20: ‘Thou shall have none other Gods but me’ (Jehovah); New Testament, John ch6 v38, ch10 v30, ch14 v9, ch16 v28, ch16: ‘Jesus said, “I came down from Heaven and I and my Father are one … He that hath seen Me … hath seen the Father … I go to the Father … I will come again and receive you unto Myself”.’

As for my reference to mainstream religions believing in the one God, this was to the different branches of christianity – eg, Anglican, Baptist and others. Nowhere in my letter did I refer to Allah, Budha, Krishna or other beliefs, although I do respect others. Mr Heys also has the right to his own beliefs. I am not trying to

convert him to mine.
