Discerning the True God from Idols

As always, any quotes do not necessarily imply endorsement or agreement unless stated otherwise.

Thomas Cartwright writes:

“‘Is there nothing that hath a being but God?’

Nothing in comparison, and therefore the Prophet saith that all nations before Him are nothing, yea to Him less than nothing: and if men be nothing for whom the world was made, how much more are all other creatures in heaven and earth nothing before Him, and to Him less than nothing?

‘Can you from hence define what God is?’

He must have the Art and Logic of God Himself, that must give a perfect definition of God; but He may in such sort be described as He may be discerned from all false gods and all creatures whatsoever” (Thomas Cartwright, Treatise of the Christian Religion).

For an excellent exposition of the True vs the false gods (idols) see the following:
