No other

Pluralism has made the words you are about to read forbidden and evil.  

What I'm about to say is considered hate speech in our day, 
but these words are the confession of anyone who follows Christ.  

They aren't words of hate, but of ultimate love for the world God has made.

These are the words of God himself when he said in Isaiah 45,

"I am the  Lord, and there is no other; besides Me there is no God." v. 5

"I am the Lord, and there is no other." v. 6

"I am the Lord, and there is none else." v. 18

"And there is no other God besides me," v. 21

"There is none except me." v. 21

Why is God so clear, so insistent that we know this?

Because he then says this,

"That to Me every knee will bow, every tongue will swear allegiance." v. 23

And this is not the only place this is spoken. Follow me to the New Testament as Paul writes,

"For this reason also, God hight exalted Him (Jesus), and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." Phil. 2

But the Bible doesn't stop there, it continues as John writes,

"And every created think which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all things in them, I heard saying, 'To HIM who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb (Jesus), be blessing and honor and glory and dominion forever and ever." 
Rev. 5

There is no other God but the God of the Bible. He is the maker of all things.  He is the only God, there is no other. 

He will not give his glory to another.  He will not share his throne. There are not multiple ways to God, there is only one, only one way to the one God- Jesus.

Jesus said, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father but through me." John 14

Exclusive?  YES!

Inclusive? YES!  

His invitation is open to all. Anyone may come, anyone can say yes to his invitation of love, but he is clear, there is no other God.  

He claims the throne exclusively.

There is no other.... other God other savior other Lord

and when we each pass from this earth we will meet only Him, deal with only Him, answer to only Him, and worship


There is no other.
