Ephesians 4:6(NASB)6 one God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all.

1 Timothy 2:5(NASB)5 For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,

1 Corinthians 8:4(NASB)4 Therefore concerning the eating of things sacrificed to idols, we know that there is no such thing as an idol in the world, and that there is no God but one.

James 2:19(NASB)19 You believe that God is one. You do well; the demons also believe, and shudder.

Deuteronomy 6:4(NASB)4 “Hear, O Israel! The Lord is our God, the Lord is one!

2. The Only God. The Bible teaches God's simple unity not only by stating that He is one, but also by affirming that He is the only God. The word "only" means alone, by one's self, apart, to be solitary.

John 17:3(NASB)3 This is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.

1 Timothy 6:15(NASB)15 which He will bring about at the proper time—He who is the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords,

Jude 1:4(NASB)4 For certain persons have crept in unnoticed, those who were long beforehand marked out for this condemnation, ungodly persons who turn the grace of our God into licentiousness and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.

Jude 1:25(NASB)25 to the only God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen.

2 Kings 19:15(NASB)15 Hezekiah prayed before the Lord and said, “O Lord, the God of Israel, who are enthroned above the cherubim, You are the God, You alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth. You have made heaven and earth.

2 Kings 19:19(NASB)19 Now, O Lord our God, I pray, deliver us from his hand that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that You alone, O Lord, are God.”

Nehemiah 9:6(NASB)6 “You alone are the Lord.You have made the heavens,the heaven of heavens with all their host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them.You give life to all of themAnd the heavenly host bows down before You.

1 Samuel 2:2(NASB)2 “There is no one holy like the Lord, Indeed, there is no one besides You, Nor is there any rock like our God.

1 Kings 8:60(NASB)60 so that all the peoples of the earth may know that the Lord is God; there is no one else.

II. Indications of God's Oneness

1. God's Infinite Attributes. The oneness of God is required by the fact that God is infinite. Reality permits the existence of only one person who is absolutely perfect. There can be only one person who is supreme.

Pre-eminence excludes all but one. When one speaks of the original, the source, the first cause, the greatest, the highest, the supreme, the ultimate, the final, he refers to a position that only one person can occupy. God's infinite superiority requires Him to be a single unit, a sole individual, a unique being.

For more than one infinite God to exist would be a contradiction of thought. If several persons existed as God, they would limit each other. They would need to be finite. None would be all in all--the one supreme God.

(Wakefield, Samuel. Christian Theology. New York: Nelson & Phillips, 1873, pp. 140, 141.)

The idea of God is appropriated to an individual, and does not admit of application to more than one. There cannot be any thing above God, or equal to Him, or which is not dependent upon Him. He is not only the first and the best, but the greatest of beings; and, consequently, He stands alone in the universe. What do we mean by the term God but a being who is infinitely and absolutely perfect?

The idea of two equal gods is therefore a chimera. There may be more kings than one, because royalty only implies that each is vested with sovereign authority in his own dominions; but there cannot be a plurality of gods, because, from the nature of things, only one can be possessed of all possible perfections.

2. The Unity of Nature. The unity of nature reveals the unity of God. All created things form not a multiverse but a universe. The universe evidences itself as the work of one mind, one power, one will--one God. Each new scientific discovery emphasizes the truth of the unity of nature and the oneness of God.

3. Man's Psychological Nature. Man finds a oneness of life in the oneness of God. Unity of personality and purpose is discovered in loyalty to one God. "Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord: and thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart and with all thy soul, and with all thy might" (Deut. 6:4, 5).

Because God is supreme, men are to worship Him supremely. Because God is one, men are to love Him with oneness of person. The one God who is all in all insists on total loyalty in His creatures.

Psychology recognizes the need for an organizing principle in man's life. Every circle needs a center. Every solar system needs a sun. Every life needs a supreme loyalty to give it unity and purpose. The oneness of God fills this basic psychological need within man. In supreme loyalty to the one God, man finds a center for his circle and an adequate purpose for his life.

Sinful men cannot worship, obey, and love God in an acceptable way until they become properly related to God through the mediatorial work of Jesus Christ. The sinner must turn his back to sin in repentance before he can turn his face toward God in worship.

He must exercise trust in Christ as Sacrifice before he can yield proper obedience to Him as Lord. He must surrender to God's saving grace and transforming power before he can be filled with Christ's imparted righteousness which is love.

Only through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, therefore, can man properly fulfill his threefold responsibility of worship, obedience, and love.
