In a world of so many divergent religions and philosophies …do you find yourself asking (as I did when I was a young boy) …“is there a true God?”
For years that question plagued me. In fact it was a question that I used, to plague some of my school teachers and religious instruction teachers.
They frustrated me with answers …such as “Oh well, the answer to that question is just a matter of faith.”
How has this question rested with you? Have you found a satisfactory answer to it, yet?
I was 15 when I began to find out about the “true God”.
In fact I began to find God described in the only literature in the world that dares to describe the “true God” …the Bible.
It was quite an illumination to read about the “true God” mentioned in quite a number of scriptures such as: 2 Chronicles 15:1-4 2 Chronicles 15:1-4  And the Spirit of God came on Azariah the son of Oded:
 And he went out to meet Asa, and said to him, Hear you me, Asa, and all Judah and Benjamin; The LORD is with you, while you be with him; and if you seek him, he will be found of you; but if you forsake him, he will forsake you.
 Now for a long season Israel has been without the true God, and without a teaching priest, and without law.
 But when they in their trouble did turn to the LORD God of Israel, and sought him, he was found of them.

American King James Version×; Revelation 15:3 Revelation 15:3And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvelous are your works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are your ways, you King of saints.

Yes the Bible opened up to me the understanding of where to look, observe, and find the “true God”.
I found out that “true God” is God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ.
1 John 5:20 1 John 5:20And we know that the Son of God is come, and has given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.
American King James Version×: And we know that the Son of God is come, and has given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.
