I have told you that there are many gods but only one God and I am He.
“What do You mean by many gods?”
In a sense, the wind and seas are gods. The elemental forces of nature are gods.
“Why gods rather than impersonal forces?”
They are not impersonal. They are agents of Me. They help direct the world toward its goal.
“What is Your relation to the God of Israel?”
The God of Israel is one face of Me. It is really Me, and I really did undergo the development recorded pretty accurately in the Hebrew Bible.
“You have other ‘faces’?”
Of course. I came to all peoples, but arrived in different guises. I came to the American Indians as the Great Spirit, to the Muslems as Allah, and so on. I came to the Hindus in many different forms, and hence their many stories.
