Polytheistic claims are false .
Humans assume that all contradictions are false. Any worldview that does not allow for this assumption to be rationally justified is deductively false.
Premise 1: If anyone is not the author of every aspect of reality, then his authority is insufficient to rationally guarantee the behavior of reality.
Premise 2: Under polytheism, no one is the author of every aspect of reality.
Conclusion: Therefore, under polytheism, no one has the authority to rationally guarantee the behavior of reality.
Humans assume that reality is non-contradictory. Under polytheism, there can ultimately be no reason to hold to this assumption, making it an irrational assumption. This makes polytheism deductively false.

"In Romans 1:22-27 especially verse 25, it says the punishment God gave for turning his incorruptible image into the image of corruptible man. If your bible says this why do so many christians say Jesus is 'god incarnate' or even 'son of god"
Jesus is one person with two natures. One of His natures is divine (God) and the other is human (man). His God-nature is not His man-nature, and likewise, His man-nature is not His God-nature. They are distinct. Thus, Christians correctly refer to Jesus as both "God" and also as "man", all the while NEVER referring to God as man or man as God. This may sound confusing, but it really is not when put into perspective. Take the following analogy...
Monotheism is true: a simple proof
Monotheism refers to any philosophy which claims that there is only one supreme creator of the universe.
"If we are so sure that the Pentateuch is accurate then why are there so many discrepencies?:One of them is: Exodus Ch.33 V.20 vs. Genesis 32:30. In one place: God says no man can see Him and live, and then Jacob is celebrating to have done just that."
Here are the relevant passages (NASB)... Exodus 33:20 But He said, "You cannot see My face, for no man can see Me and live!" Genesis 32:30 So Jacob named the place Peniel, for he said, "I have seen God face to face, yet my life has been preserved." Neither of these passages is intended to be taken literally.All articles
