Due to the changing of forums, I have moved this post to my blog, at the request of mods.
Although Christians will vehemently deny it, they are actually polytheists. The claim of "multiple gods in one" is actually found in the widely recognized polytheistc religion of Hinduism.
All of the dozens or hundreds of Hindu gods and goddesses are said to be simply multiple manifestations of the "one high god" [Brahma]. - How familliar does this sound to you? -
How then can Christianity be monotheistic when it follows the same idea as this POLYTHEISTIC religion? Answer - It is not.
In fact, Christianity has four different Gods and multitudes of demigods - angels, demons, devils, and deified humans called "saints." It is no joke to say that this religion is as polytheistic as Hinduism.
So who are these four major Gods? Well, Christians talk about them all the time. There is a "good" but petty and vengeful King of the Gods named "Yahweh," "Jehovah," "or simply "the Father."
There is Yahweh's son, the merciful, self-sacrificing, loving, forgiver god: called "Jesus," "Christ," "Immanuel," "Yeshua," or simply "The Son." As with many redeemer gods, this one was born of a human woman through divine conception. This woman's name was "Mary" or "Miriam," the Queen of Heaven.
[A Short Digression on Mary]
Protestants and Catholics disagree on the position in the diety hierarchy of this woman. For Protestants, she is a demi-goddess. For Catholics, she seems to be a full-fledged Goddess, the fifth major god. In the case of Catholics, she appears to be a mediator goddess as well as the goddess of fertility [the mother Goddess.]. They use her to communicate with the highter up Gods, Yahweh and Jesus.
The most strange of the Christian gods is the third one, the Holy Spirit/ Holy Ghost.
Pretty much nothing is known about this god except that it seems to have no corporeal form.
The fourth god is a bit different. He is an evil god who is a [somehow] less powerful rival of Yahweh. His proper name is "Satan" but he is also incorrectly called "the Devil" [there are actually many devils, and they are lesser down evil demigods] or he is incorrectly called "Lucifer" [who is a completely different character, a devil demi-god, who - if I remember correctly - is the commander of Satan's armies of hell.]
Among protestants and catholics alike there are obvious good and evil demigods in the forms of angels, archangels, demons, and devils.
Christians refuse to admit the obvious fact that these creatures are dieties, and that their religion is polytheistic.
But how can this religion be called "monotheistic?" Just a thought....
