What is a theist?
A theist is a person who believes in at least one god or deity. Theism stands in contrast with atheism, which is the denial of the existence of any god, and agnosticism, which is the belief that the existence of a God or gods is uncertain. Theism can include any of the following worldviews:
*****Monotheism: is a person who believes in one God. Monotheism is accepted by Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, although each religion has a very different view of God.
*****Polytheism: is a person who believes in more than one god. Those who believed in the gods of the Greco-Roman culture were polytheists. Today, those who accept the many gods and goddesses of the spirit world would be considered polytheists.
*****Deism: Deists believe in a God (or sometimes gods) who created the universe but does not operate within the universe.
*****Pantheism, Panentheism: Pantheists and panentheists believe god is all and all is god. Panentheism also includes the idea that a god or gods created the material universe.
Autotheism: An autotheist is anyone who makes the claim that he or she is God or an enlightened one.
According to the Bible, there is ONE God who created the Heavens and the Earth (Gen.1:1). This teaching is not debated but expected in the Bible.
Psalm 14:1 The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good. (KJV)
The Old Testament clearly teaches monotheism:
Deut. 6:4 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: (KJV)
Deut. 4:39 Know therefore this day, and consider it in thine heart, that the LORD he is God in heaven above, and upon the earth beneath: there is none else. (KJV)
According to the New Testament, God exists as one Triune God comprising God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit (Mat.28:19). All three Persons of the Triune God are also mentioned at Jesus’ baptism, when the voice of God the Father speaks from the sky to Jesus and the Spirit descends like a dove (Mat.3:17-17).
A Christian is a theist of a special kind. A Christian is a monotheist who accepts the view of a Triune God and believes in Jesus as the risen Lord (Rom.10:9).
