Those who reject the idea that God was the Creator of man (Genesis 1:26; 2:7)em> claim that man was really the creator of God (or gods). Atheists argue that man was polytheistic (believed in many gods) at first and that he personified these multiple gods from various forces of nature that he feared and didn't understand. They believe that the Jews were the first people to develop the idea of monotheism (belief in one God). Archaeological investigations do not support this.

Historical surveys show that even the earliest records of human civilization believed in one God, and that polytheism crept in to replace this original belief. Noted Egyptologist Sir William M.F. Petrie affirmed that montheism has been found to be the original belief of all cultures that can be traced back to their roots. The evidence clearly supports biblical teaching.

God created man to worship Him alone. As man disobeyed God and began worshiping other “gods,” he has harmed himself in innumerable ways.
