All other 'gods' are not gods at all

There is one Jehovah who is also the true God

Deut 6:4 Listen, O Israel: Jehovah our God is one Jehovah.

1 Cor 8:4 Now concerning the eating of foods offered to idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is no God but one.

Deut. 4:35 You—you have been shown, so as to know that Jehovah is the true God; there is no other besides him.

Isa. 37:20 And now, O Jehovah our God, save us out of his hand, that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that you, O Jehovah, are [God] alone.

Messenger of God who is Christ, is also the true God.

Gen. 31:11-13 Then the angel of the [true] God said to me in the dream, ‘Jacob!’ to which I said, ‘Here I am.’ I am the true God of Beth´el’”

Exodus 3:2, 4, 6 Then Jehovah’s angel appeared to him in a flame of fire in the midst of a thorn bush. And he went on to say: “I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob.” Then Moses concealed his face, because he was afraid to look at the true God.

Holy Spirit is also Jehovah - Jehovah is the true God

2 cor 3:17 Now Jehovah is the Spirit; and where the spirit of Jehovah is, there is freedom.

If Jehovah is the true God, then all other gods are either false gods or not gods at all!

There is none like God (in His essence)

Ex. 8:10 To this he said: “Tomorrow.” So he said: “It will be according to your word, in order that you may know that there is no one else like Jehovah our God,

2 Sam. 7:22 That is why you are indeed great, O Sovereign Lord Jehovah; for there is no other like you, and there is no God except you among all of whom we have heard with our ears.

Psalms 86:8 There is none like you among the gods, O Jehovah, Neither are there any works like yours.

Being like God is a Satanic deception:

Gen. 3:5 For God knows that in the very day of YOUR eating from it YOUR eyes are bound to be opened and YOU are bound to be like God, KNOWING good and bad.”

Isa. 14:14 I shall go up above the high places of the clouds; I shall make myself resemble the Most High.

Fallen man became "like God" only in that he took upon himself to know good and evil, not that he acquired godhood:

Gen. 3:22 And Jehovah God went on to say: “Here the man has become like one of us in knowing good and bad

All other "gods" are therefore false gods (idols), not gods at all:

Deut. 32:21 They, for their part, have incited me to jealousy with what is no god; They have vexed me with their vain idols

Psa. 96:5 For all the gods of the peoples are valueless gods; But as for Jehovah, he has made the very heavens.

Isa. 37:19 And there was a consigning of their gods to the fire, because they were no gods, but the workmanship of man’s hands, wood and stone, so that they destroyed them.

Gal 4:8 Nevertheless, when YOU did not know God, then it was that YOU slaved for those who by nature are not gods.

Demons, not gods, are the powers behind false worship:

Deut. 32:17 They went sacrificing to demons, not to God, Gods whom they had not known,
New ones who recently came in, With whom YOUR forefathers were not acquainted.

Psa. 106:37 And they would sacrifice their sons And their daughters to demons.

How are men meant to be "like God"?

The image of God indicates that man is to represent God and share His moral character, not that man can be metaphysically like God:

Col. 3:10 and clothe yourselves with the new [personality], which through accurate knowledge is being made new according to the image of the One who created it

Gen. 1:26-27 And God proceeded to create the man in his image, in God’s image he created him; male and female he created them. 28

Eph. 4:24 And should put on the new personality which was created according to God’s will in true righteousness and loyalty.

Are mighty or exalted men gods?

- No Scripture says explicitly that men are gods
- Powerful, mighty men are explicitly said not to be gods:

Ezek. 28:2,9 “Son of man, say to the leader of Tyre, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord Jehovah has said: ‘“For the reason that your heart has become haughty, and you keep saying, ‘I am a god. In the seat of god I have seated myself, in the heart of the open sea,’ whereas an earthling man is what you are, and not a god, and you keep making your heart like the heart of god. Will you without fail say, ‘I am god,’ before the one killing you, whereas you are a mere earthling man, and not a god, in the hand of those profaning you?”

Isa. 31:3 The Egyptians, though, are earthling men, and not God

Men and God are opposite, exclusive categories:

Num. 23:19 God is not a man that he should tell lies

Isa. 31:3 The Egyptians, though, are earthling men, and not God

Hosea 11:9 I shall not express my burning anger. I shall not bring E´phra•im to ruin again, for I am God and not man, the Holy One in the midst of you; and I shall not come in excitement.

Moses was "God"?

Ex. 7:1 Consequently Jehovah said to Moses: “See, I have made you God to Phar´aoh, and Aaron your own brother will become your prophet.

Ex. 4:16 And he must speak for you to the people; and it must occur that he will serve as a mouth to you, and you will serve as God to him.

Ezek. 28:9 Will you without fail say, ‘I am god,’ before the one killing you, whereas you are a mere earthling man, and not a god, in the hand of those profaning you?”’

- Moses was 'as God', not really a god.

Are angels gods?

- No Scripture explicitly states that angels are gods
- Satan is therefore also a false god (2 Cor. 4:4)

At 2 Corinthians 4:4, Satan is addressed as “god.” Since it is obvious that Satan is a false god, he is addressed as “god” because people who do not honor the true God serve him just as the pagans throughout history serve false idol “gods” made of wood and stone. Since there is only one true God (John 17:3) as He has revealed Himself as the “only God” (1 Timothy 1:17), Jesus is either in the true God category and is therefore Jehovah God, or He is a counterfeit god who is a false god. There is no middle ground. While Scripture reveals that all other “so-called gods” are not gods by nature but are false gods (1 Corinthians 8:5-6), Jesus is by nature the one and only true God (Source:

While Jehovah’s Witnesses assert that there is a category of “gods” that is neither true or false but that these “gods” hold the title of “god” due to their power and authority, Scripture reveals that this is not the case. For example, at Psalm 82:6-7, Israelite judges where called “gods” in sarcasm because these judges (who thought of themselves a “gods”) were reviling the true God by their unrighteous judgments. Psalm 82 is a psalm of condemnation of these judges who acted as if they were “gods” in that they made life and death decisions for others, but who would ultimately “die like men”—thus proving the infinite difference between the true God and the mightiest of mortals (Source:

By teaching that there are many “gods” who are neither true or false, Watchtower doctrine resembles henotheism rather than monotheism or polytheism. While henotheism is very similar to polytheism in that it advocates the existence of many “gods,” it differs from polytheism by teaching that there is only one God who should receive worship. As is clearly demonstrated by Scripture, neither henotheism or polytheism is correct, for Jehovah God is the “only God” (1 Timothy 1:17) (Source:

Conclusion: If there is only one God, one true God, it doesn’t matter if one is mighty or almighty , all other gods being false gods, neither men nor angels being gods, and none even like God by nature -- all of which the Bible says repeatedly and explicitly -- then we must conclude that there is indeed only one God. One in the bible when referring to God is unity and therefore Godhead includes the Father who is the true God, the Son who is the true God and the Spirit who is the true God who shares the common name Jehovah. All other gods are either false gods or not gods at all.
