Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 8:6


8:6 Yet to us - Christians. There is but one God - This is exclusive, not of the One Lord, as if he were an inferior deity; but only of the idols to which the One God is opposed. From whom are all things - By creation, providence, and grace. And we for him - The end of all we are, have, and do. And one Lord - Equally the object of divine worship. By whom are all things - Created, sustained, and governed. And we by him - Have access to the Father, and all spiritual blessings.


People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 8:6


1Co 8:6 But to us [there is but] one God. To Christians, there is but one divinity, one object of worship, the true and living God. One God, the Father, instead of the "gods many"; one Lord, Christ, instead of the "lords many" of heathenism (1Co 8:5), one God, and one Mediator between man and God (1Ti 2:5).

Discussion for 1 Corinthians 8:6

  • One is one. Period. Jesus said me and the Father are one. One what? At Jn 17:21 Jesus said he and his disiples are one. So, Jesus wanted all his followers to be one,just as he and his Father one. Jesus is not saying he is God when he says me and the Father are one.
  • Enrique Cárdenas for verse 6
    SIMPLE, HOW YOU READ: That there is JUST ONE GOD the Father and ONE LORD the SON. Yeshua explains that in: John 14 10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? The words that I speak unto you I speak not of MYSELF: but THE FATHER that dwelleth in me, HE DOETH the works. The Catholic Church changed de words GOD OR YAHWEH has LORD, even in the New Testament to turn the Son in God because if they had not done it their Mother of God would not exist.
  • Jundaguit for verse 6
    1 Corinthians 8:6 in the first glance seems so very self explanatory to understand but of the truth it is as it said that there is really but one God. I could not understand why most religious educators like pastors, ministers and priests teaches differently and established Jesus as another God from the Father and another the Holy Spirit and said they are co-equal. I could not find in the bible the co-equality of the three but instead these three are one meaning The Father is manifested as the Son of God and itself is a Spirit. It is true that the Father is God, the Son of God is God and the Holy Spirit is also God, but these does not implies the persons of their being and treated them differently. We are just destroying what God hath said that there is no God beside Him. No God formed before and after him. God is not man nor person as you called their being. God is Spirit as the Father is Spirit and we are talking Jesus as God is the Spirit Jesus because Jesus as a man is never God but as a flesh is a tabernacle of God which is the Spirit. We should not be confused that there is only but one God, the Father. From Genesis to Revelation there is only one God was introduced that even the Jewish people in his time having hard to understand about what Jesus said, and not far in our present time that we do the same. We should remember that Jesus came from heaven in the form of the Spirit which is the Father when he came down, appeared to Mary in her womb as what the angel said that the Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee. Take note there is none other Holy Ghost that should came down to earth but the Father. We should not be confused also that the Son of God is not other than the Father as Jesus said I and my Father are one. Jesus said also that ye shall die in your sins, For if ye believe not that I AM HE (the Father)you shall die in your sins. (Isaiah 43:10,11)There is none other savior but the Father. Jesus the tabernacle of the Father is the same Savior and not another savior. Jesus who is the same yesterday, today and forever is the same the Father, which in Revelation 1:8 said I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty. the one that sitteth in the one throne in heaven. Finally, Jesus the Spirit itself is the Father. The Father command us to believe in the name of the Son of God Jesus for us to be saved. Don't be surprised that Jesus is the name of the Father.
