N/B – I use the term, ‘God,’ and I also use the terms, ‘his’ and ‘him’ to refer to God, because they are the most common terms used in reference to The Creator/Infinite Intelligence/Source Energy
Today, many people claim they believe in this powerful spirit we call God. However, a close observation of how these folks live shows that their belief in God is useless.
Are you a believer? Today I will enlighten you by providing you with five things that make your belief in God useless.
- Excessively Worrying About Your Problems
It’s useless to believe in God and still worry about your problems excessively. Believing in God and still worrying shows that your faith in The Creator is weak.
If you believe in God you must deeply know that this powerful loving Spirit is willing and has the ability to solve your problems when requested to do so.
You only get into alignment with The Creator’s power when you become a giver because he designed life to thrive through giving. Plants give us oxygen and food, animals give plants carbon-dioxide, the sun gives us energy, and the list of giving is endless. No matter how hard you pray, praise, and believe in God, you will suffer if you are a selfish person. People will hate you, and you will never be happy or satisfied. For this reason, your belief in God will be useless.
- You are not Connected With his Power
Your belief in God is useless if you are not connected with him. Studying spirituality and ancient books has made me realize that there is a way you can connect with Infinite Intelligence/God.
This connection changes your life instantly because it enables you to do magnificent things as The Creator starts expressing himself through you. It is believed that the first men and women were highly intelligent and they could build magnificent buildings such as the pyramids because they were connected with God’s power.
For this reason, make your belief in The Creator useful by connecting with his power because regardless of how hard you pray, trust, or praise God, he will only be able to work with you if you are connected with his power.
- You don’t Understand how The Creator works
There is a way The Creator works, and you can know it by studying the universe and nature. Your belief in God is useless if you don’t understand how The Creator works because you won’t know how to relate to him or fall in alignment with his infinite power.
Many spiritual teachers claim that your prayers can only work when you understand The Creator because you will know how to approach ‘him.’ Besides this, they teach that you can only have strong faith in The Creator if you know how he works.
Most of us believe in God just because we were told to do so. We have never taken our time to study how God works, and for this reason, we never truly believe in him hence making our prayers ineffective.
- You Fear Going Broke
We mostly fear going broke because we don’t know how we’ll survive when we are broke. If you believe in God and you fear going broke, your belief is useless because you don’t trust that The Creator will take care of you when you have nothing. A true believer never fears going broke because he knows his ‘Loving Father’ will provide for him when he’s broke

Why We Are Our Biggest Enemy
Most of us blame life for our misfortunes and frustrations. We think we are unhappy because life is not on our side. Little do we know that we are our biggest enemy because we are frustrated although life blessed us with wonderful things that ensure we live well.
For instance, life blessed us with imagination so that we become creative and use our creativity to improve our lives. However, we use imagination to visualize the worst possible outcome. Moreover, it gave us memory to remember and correct our past mistakes, but we use it to relive the bad things that happened in the past.
Besides this, life gave us an intuitive voice to guide us, but we let our egos direct us towards unfulfilling lives. It also provided us with the stars to please our eyes and beautiful views to relax the mind, but we find these wonders useless.
Additionally, life gave us a mind with powerful magnetic forces to help us attract what we mostly dwell on, but we dwell on negative thoughts and therefore, attract negative events in our lives. It also created many human beings so that we support and love each other, but we are selfish, and we wish bad things upon others. We then attract these terrible things because wishing bad things for others lowers our vibration.
Furthermore, life provides us with endless opportunities. It ensures that we get whatever we want so long as we are courageous and risk-taking. However, we are afraid to take risks, and we complain when we don’t move forward. It gave us talents that can employ us and make us reach our full potentials, but we choose to work in boring jobs that never lead to growth.
Life is good. It gave us amazing bodies to enable us to experience the physical world fully. But we hate our bodies because we compare them with unrealistic bodies the media shows us. We also destroy our bodies by eating unhealthy foods, and we blame God for giving us a bad body and making us prone to diseases.
Furthermore, life gave us a self-healing body that naturally gets rids of toxins, and medicinal plants that treat various diseases, but we invest in pharmaceutical drugs that only eliminate the symptoms of our illnesses. We complain when we can’t access health care yet there are many affordable traditional treatment methods that can completely eradicate our ailments.
We are never thankful to Infinite Intelligence for allowing us to experience life in a physical realm. Moreover, we don’t live fully by living moment by moment and trusting that everything will fall into place. Lastly, we never meditate on life and realize how life always ensures that we live well. For this reason, we are our biggest enemy.

Does Polytheism Make More Sense?
Monotheism is the belief in one God, while polytheism is the belief in many gods.
After studying ancient cultures for a while, I realized that most of them were polytheistic. Most ancient African, European, American and Asian cultures believed in many gods. They believed in the gods of wisdom, gods of wealth, gods of nature, gods of warriors and so on. Ancient folks prayed to particular gods for particular things. If an individual wanted wealth, he would pray to the god of wealth, and if another wanted luck, he would pray to the gods of luck and good fortune.
Besides this, some ancient cultures worshipped many gods but believed in a supreme God that dominated other gods. For example, the Greeks believed Zeus was the King of Gods, but they also worshipped the other gods.
Furthermore, while studying ancient cultures, it dawned on me that polytheism is older than monotheism. Sarah Johnson agrees with me for she wrote, “polytheism is always the older or ‘primary’ and monotheism the newer or secondary type of religion (Sarah Johnson, Ancient Religions).” It, therefore, appears that monotheists borrowed the concept of God from polytheists.
However, most people believe polytheism is a form of paganism. Little do they know that the concept of one god appeared after people unified polytheistic gods into one Supreme-being. Some scholars even argue that monotheism began when Akhenaten, an ancient Egyptian Pharaoh, forced Egyptians to practice monotheism.
I’m sometimes tempted to believe polytheism makes more logical sense than monotheism. Sometimes I wonder if God can hear all our prayers, answer them, and guide all of us at the same time. Maybe it’s true, as polytheists believe, that God rules over other gods that assist him in guiding us, and listening to our prayers. It also makes sense that if one wants wisdom and wealth, she should pray to the god of wisdom and wealth, instead of praying to the King of Gods/God.
Perhaps God’s only duty is to provide life to the universe while other gods’ duties are to take care of us and guide us. Maybe we even have guardian gods that help us deal with life and fulfill our destinies.
Lastly, is it sensible to argue that all ancient cultures believed in many gods because they were primitive, or because it was logical to believe in many gods? Moreover, why did various ancient cultures which never met, coincidentally believe in many gods? Maybe it’s because these gods existed.
Anyway, the idea of many gods should be taken seriously because it might be the secret to freedom and understanding the higher realms. Maybe monotheism was created because it prevents people from realizing the true nature of the higher realms and it’s easier to control people who believe in one God.
