Monotheism

Monotheism

Monotheism is the belief in one creator god that still controls the universe.  In more simplistic terms, it has been said to be the belief in one god, but it isn’t that simple.  Religions who claim to be monotheist can sometimes have a number of dieties that appear to be the one god in 3 different faces or “parts”.  We have included those religions here, even though there has always been conflict, even among like believers, as to which label is appropriate:  polytheism or monotheism.
