The word God is used many ways in this world. Primarily because there are many gods. It seems clear that many cannot properly identify God because of all the different doctrines that are out there. I believe the bible is clear in identifying God as the Father. Please look at the following scriptures and let me know how these scriptures agree with many of the doctrines out there. 1Corinthians 1:3, 1Cor. 8:6, 2Cor. 1:2,Gal. 1:1&3, Eph. 1:2, Phil. 1:2, Col. 1:2, 1Thess. 1:1, 2Thess. 1:1-2, 1Tim. 1:2, 2Tim. 1:2, Titus 1:4, Philemon 3, 1Pet. 1:2-3, 2John 3 and Jude 1.
