Why do people have so many different beliefs about God?

We can know God, His character and His plan for mankind. God has given us true and accurate knowledge through His Word, the Bible. That’s the good news; the bad news is sinful people have the desire to push away God’s truth.

The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so.

Romans 8:7

More bad news. Satan loves to misrepresent God’s truth. Satan does this by taking some Biblical truth and either twisting that truth or adding misinformation to it. Example: God wants everybody to go to heaven, as long as they work for it by being good.

Satan loves to put in peoples’ minds incorrect information about God to distort who God is and what He wants from people. Hence the many different beliefs about God.

The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.

2 Corinthians 4:4

There is a true belief about God, but you need to know the Bible to know the truth about God.
