According to Hart, “God is simple in that He is not a composite of parts. He is one God, indivisible.” In other words, God is not separated into different entities or pieces. He alone is the sole God of the universe. Since he is one, it is imperative that ministers teach this to be true. Doing so combats the pluralistic religious view of modern society by presenting the truth of scripture. One way to teach God oneness is through film. For example, I would make films that portray God as the one god of the universe. While God would not be a character in every film I make, his portrayal would align with scripture.

Further, ministry centers on addressing these needs by unremittingly doing Christ
