“It is as easy to make an idol of false doctrines and theories by misrepresenting the attributes of God, Satan leads men to conceive of Him in a false character.” Great Controversy, 583.
A NEW GOD?
Could it be that many Seventh-day Adventists are ignorantly worshipping the same God that they are told not to worship in the third angel’s message—the god of the beast power? Or are we just calling the true Godhead by the name of a false god? What god are we worshipping today? Could modern Israel, like Israel of old, be worshipping a false god?
“How long halt ye between two opinions? If the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, thenfollow him.” 1 Kings 18:21.
Are these words of Elijah applicable today?
“Godhead” is the term used in the NT that describes the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The word for “God” in the OT Hebrew is “Elohiym”. It means “Gods” in the plural. This is clearly seen in the following Scriptures:
Gen. 1:26: “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness.”
Gen. 11:7: “Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.”
Isaiah 6:8: “Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?”
These verses show that the Godhead consists of more than one divine Being. There is a unity in the Godhead. The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit work together for our salvation in perfect harmony.
