You can get on the internet and type in to a search engine the word “compare” and it will bring up websites that will let you compare anything from computers to phones to grocery stores and on and on. You can’t run out of websites that will help you compare items. We always want the best product or the best buy and love shopping around. When it comes to gods to choose from, there really is no comparison. Some gods are dead. They were just humans that taught good ideas and then died. Some gods were just carved images in stone and wood. They could never even come up with a good idea. Some gods are just things we find in nature. They don’t even think on the same level as we do. It is interesting to look back over the history of mankind and see all the “gods” that man has created to worship and hope in. How futile these efforts are. Our own basic intelligence should naturally lead us to realize that for a god to be our god, it must be more intelligent, more powerful, more loving, more wise, and live longer than us. The God of the Bible is the only god that has ever met all those requirements and more. He is the only one who is alive and loves us deeply. He is the only one who has taught us wisdom and given us knowledge that is unsurpassable. He even reminds us in Isaiah 40: 25-26 that nothing will ever compare to Him:
“25 “Who will you compare Me to, or who is My equal?” asks the Holy One. 26 Look up and see: who created these? He brings out the starry host by number; He calls all of them by name. Because of His great power and strength, not one of them is missing.”
When looking for a god to serve, worship and love, all we have to do is but look up and see that the God of the Bible is the one. Comparing other gods with Him is like apples and oranges being compared. There really is nothing in common but that they are fruits. There is nothing really in common between God and other gods we could chose to worship, except that they are all just lumped in to man’s choices for their gods. Just like apples and oranges are all lumped in to the category of fruits. Wisdom should tell us after looking at the stars and other parts of God’s creation that they could have only come from one source, the one true God and that nothing compares to Him. He is above all and all comes from Him.
