The Top Ten
1 Jesus Christ In Christianity, Jesus Christ is believed to be the Son of God and the second person of the Holy Trinity. He was born in Bethlehem to the Virgin Mary and lived a life of teaching, healing, and performing miracles. Christians believe that he was crucified, died, and was resurrected to atone for humanity's sins. His teachings are recorded in the New Testament of the Bible, and his life and resurrection are considered the foundational events of the Christian faith.

Jesus is Lord! Lord of lords and King of kings! Savior of my life. He endured the greatest pain on the cross to save our lives. That's how much He loves us! He wants to keep us in the shelter of His Grace always and forever and paid for our sins with His blood so that we may have forgiveness.

"In Him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God's grace" ~ Ephesians 1:7

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." ~John 3:16

How great is His love for us! How incredible His Grace! We should all worship and praise and follow Lord Jesus Christ and His Father, for He created us and saved us, and we exist by His love and Grace. He's always there for us and He always loves us. Through the hardest times of my life, the Helper, the Holy Spirit, brought me through - Jesus saves! The peace He gives us is beyond understanding.

Jesus is my best friend and Lord of my life. He's saved me from sin and death, healed me, and redeemed me. He is worthy of all praise forever and ever! Amen!

2 Ganesha Ganesha is another major deity in the Hindu pantheon, widely revered as the remover of obstacles and the god of wisdom, prosperity, and good fortune. He is usually depicted as having an elephant's head and a human body, with four arms. Ganesha is commonly invoked at the beginning of new ventures, and he has a wide following not only in India but also among Hindus worldwide. His birth is celebrated annually during the festival of Ganesh Chaturthi.

He is the remover of obstacles.
Remember him and nothing will stop you.
He is the child of the Supreme Lord, just like Jesus.
Om Namo Ganapataye!

The Literal God of Gods, the First God, the Powerhouse of the Hindu Pantheon, a God who removes obstacles, the Ultimate Reality.

Om Mahaganpathi Om!

He will make you successful in the work you do by overcoming all difficulties.

3 Shiva In Hinduism, Shiva is one of the principal deities, part of the Holy Trinity along with Brahma and Vishnu. Shiva is often referred to as the "destroyer" within the trinity, responsible for the dissolution of the universe. He is usually depicted with a third eye, a snake around his neck, and a trishula (trident). Devotees worship Shiva through various forms and rituals, including the annual festival of Shivratri.

Shiva is the most powerful God. The entire Universe resides in Him, that is the reason Lord Brahma and Lord Vishnu, could not find the start and end of Him...

Jai Mahakaal...

He is the oldest God, the most powerful among gods in the whole world, and also the kindest, most loving, caring, and hardworking. He has a real love and connection to humans. He can be easily worshipped by all, and anybody can worship him. Nothing is sinful or impure for him. All is in his name.

Om Namah Shivaay!

He is the one who created Lord Ganesha, but no one created him. He explains the reason Ganesha entered the world as Sri Selva Vinayagar to help people and save them from great evil. He is the most powerful God in Hinduism.

4 Athena In Greek mythology, Athena is the goddess of wisdom, courage, and warfare. She is often depicted wearing a helmet and holding a shield and a spear. According to myth, Athena was born fully grown and armored from the forehead of her father, Zeus. She is considered a virgin goddess and is the patron deity of Athens, which was named in her honor. Her symbols include the owl and the olive tree.

She is even smarter than all the gods, and without her, I doubt there would even be such a thing as wisdom.

5 Odin Odin is a major god in Norse mythology, often considered the All-Father and ruler of Asgard. He is associated with wisdom, healing, death, and poetry, among other things. Odin is depicted as a complex and layered deity who seeks knowledge and power, often paying a high price for these pursuits, such as sacrificing an eye for wisdom. He is a central figure in many Norse myths and sagas, where he often appears as a guide or protector of heroes.

He is the father of Thor, very valued and respectful, calm and peaceful all the time, and fiercely loyal and honest to his people and kingdom.

He is the best god. He allowed us to gain knowledge and even encouraged it.

6 Zeus Zeus is the king of the gods in Greek mythology, ruling over Mount Olympus. He is the god of the sky, lightning, and thunder, and is often depicted holding a lightning bolt. Zeus is a central figure in many Greek myths, known for both his wisdom and his sometimes problematic relationships with other gods and mortals. He is considered the father of many Greek gods and heroes, including Athena, Apollo, and Hercules.

I like Zeus because he is a Greek god, and my family is from Cyprus.

Yeah, Jesus is cool and all, but can he shoot lightning? Didn't think so.

7 Allah In Islam, Allah is the one and only God, the creator and sustainer of the universe. The concept of Allah in Islam is strictly monotheistic, and it is considered blasphemous to associate partners with Him. Allah is merciful, compassionate, and just, according to Islamic belief, and He has revealed His will through various prophets, the final one being Muhammad. The Quran is believed to be the literal word of Allah as revealed to Muhammad.

Allah is the greatest god known to humankind. Mohammad is the greatest man in the world, and he believes in Allah.

If this goes with online voting, then I don't know the answer. But if this goes with real-life voting, I'm sure Allah will win.

In the near future, Islam will become the largest religion.

Allah is the most powerful and supreme. He is the only God. Nobody is equivalent to Him. Allah has no son. How can a statue be a god? Jesus Christ said, "I am not the god nor his son." But please don't mind this. I am just stating the truth.

8 Vishnu Vishnu is one of the major gods in the Hindu religious tradition and is part of the trinity along with Brahma and Shiva. He is commonly seen as the preserver of the universe and is often depicted as having a dark or pale blue complexion with four arms. Vishnu has taken multiple avatars, including Rama and Krishna, to restore cosmic order. He is widely worshiped through various festivals, temples, and rituals, often alongside his consort, Lakshmi.

The Real Multiverse, controls the heavens, gods listen to him, and even infinity is beyond him. He controls the Multiverse and trillions of literal infinities beyond it. A God who rests on a 1000-headed Adishesha Serpent. He is blue and makes the world's dreams come true and has supreme knowledge and karma.

Vishnu is the God of Gods. He is the operator of the universe. He has the answer to all problems. He is the most powerful god, along with Shiva and Brahma.

He is the greatest God. He tells us the Bhagavad Gita and the Ramayana. He is the true God. He will return soon again in his tenth avatar as the great Kalki, the last and final incarnation of Lord Vishnu.

9 Buddha In Buddhism, the Buddha, also known as Siddhartha Gautama, is not considered a god but rather an enlightened individual. He was born into a royal family in what is now Nepal and abandoned his life of luxury to seek the end of suffering. After attaining enlightenment under the Bodhi tree, he spent the remainder of his life teaching the path to liberation from the cycle of birth and death. His teachings form the basis of Buddhism and are encapsulated in the Four Noble Truths and the Eightfold Path.

Some Mahayana sects consider the Buddha to be a god. Likewise, some Vaishnava sects regard Him as an avatar of Vishnu. Besides that, I have seen Buddhists both online and in real life describe the Buddha as being "higher than God."

Please, learn about Buddhism before you vote Buddha as a god.

10 Hashem In Judaism, Hashem (meaning "The Name") is a term used to refer to God, emphasizing the monotheistic belief in a single, omnipotent, and compassionate deity. Judaism holds that Hashem made a covenant with the Israelites and revealed His laws through Moses in the form of the Torah. The concept of God in Judaism is abstract and transcendent, and it is considered disrespectful to use God's name in vain. Worship, prayer, and the study of Torah are key components of Jewish devotion to Hashem.

It's spelled 'HaShem,' not 'Hashem.' It's Hebrew for 'The Name.' Jewish people are very reverent when it comes to talking about God.

The Contenders
11 Poseidon In Greek mythology, Poseidon is the god of the sea, earthquakes, and horses. He is one of the Twelve Olympian gods and is the brother of Zeus and Hades. Poseidon is often depicted holding a trident and riding in a chariot pulled by sea creatures. He is known for his volatile temper and is a major figure in various myths involving conflicts with both gods and mortals. His realm is considered both beautiful and treacherous, much like the seas he governs.

If you ask me, he can be stronger than Zeus, Athena, and Hades.

12 Loki In Norse mythology, Loki is a complex figure often associated with mischief, deception, and trickery. He is not a god in the traditional sense but rather a Jötunn, a type of being that exists alongside the gods. Loki is known for his cunning and intelligence, traits that enable him to both assist and hinder the gods in various myths. While he is not purely evil, his actions, such as his role in the death of Balder, often bring about chaos and complications.
13 Durga Durga is a goddess in Hinduism, considered to be a form of Shakti and often identified with Parvati, the wife of Shiva. She is commonly depicted as a fierce warrior riding a lion or tiger, with multiple arms carrying weapons. Durga is revered for her strength, courage, and protective qualities, and she plays a central role in the annual festival of Navratri. She is worshiped in various forms and is considered a symbol of feminine power in Hinduism.

Made with the power of all gods, Durga.

(Same with Kali) Gods! Not goddesses!

14 Krishna Krishna is an avatar of the Hindu god Vishnu and is one of the most widely revered and popular deities in Hinduism. He is particularly known for his roles in the Mahabharata, including delivering the Bhagavad Gita to Arjuna. Krishna is often depicted as a young cowherd playing a flute and is celebrated for his divine love with Radha. The annual festival of Janmashtami marks his birth and is celebrated with great enthusiasm.

He is great, and His name will be heard throughout the whole world. Change has started. All will say HARE KRISHNA!

Lord Krishna is omnipresent and omnipotent. He is everything and is seen everywhere. There is no place in the universe without Him.

He is the One and Only God in the universe.

15 Hermes In Greek mythology, Hermes is the god of trade, heralds, merchants, and travelers. He is also considered the messenger of the gods and is known for his speed and cunning. Hermes is usually depicted wearing a winged hat and sandals, carrying a caduceus, a staff intertwined with two serpents. He serves as a mediator between the gods and humans and plays a role in various myths, including guiding souls to the underworld.

The one and only god is Lord Shiva, who created the whole world. Of course, I agree that Jesus Christ is also a god, but he didn't create the world. People have to remember that before Jesus Christ, ancients worshiped Lord Shiva, Lord Vishnu, and Lord Durga.

Okay, the messenger bit isn't that cool, but he's a good god of trickery, thieves, and travelers.

Hindus believe in Lord Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva. The universe was created by Brahma and is maintained by Lord Shiva and Vishnu.

16 Hanuman Hanuman is a revered figure in Hinduism, known for his devotion to Lord Rama. He plays a significant role in the Hindu epic Ramayana, where he assists Rama in rescuing his wife, Sita, from the demon king Ravana. Hanuman is commonly depicted as a monkey-faced deity with a long tail and is considered a symbol of strength, devotion, and loyalty. The Hanuman Chalisa is a popular devotional hymn dedicated to him, and he is worshiped widely in temples and homes.

He was a perfect master of his senses and wonderfully sagacious. Obedience to the Guru without questioning and strict observance of Brahmacharya - this is the secret of success. On one hand, Hanuman represents the ideal of service. On the other, he represents leonine courage, striking the whole world with awe.

He is the God of Strength, Devotion, and Sagacity. With a great personality and strong character, he embodies extreme positivity. He is religious and respectful in all situations. The God of heroes, warriors, sages, and monks alike, He is the best and greatest.

17 Ram Ram, or Rama, is an avatar of the Hindu god Vishnu and is the central figure in the ancient Indian epic, the Ramayana. He is often depicted as an ideal king, warrior, and husband. Ram is considered an embodiment of dharma (righteousness), and his life story is a major aspect of Hindu mythology and religious practice. The festival of Rama Navami celebrates his birth, and his return to Ayodhya is commemorated during the festival of Diwali.

The seventh incarnation of Lord Vishnu is known as Lord Rama. Lord Rama, the perfect avatar of the Supreme Protector Vishnu, has always been popular among Hindu deities. Rama is the symbol of courtesy and virtue, a man of values and morals. Ramachandra is Maryada Purushottama, which means the perfect man.

Ram is not the most powerful god, but he is the most respected one in the world. In his whole life, he never did anything wrong, and he suffered for the mistakes he made in his own lifetime.

18 Thor In Norse mythology, Thor is the god of thunder, lightning, and storms, often depicted wielding a hammer called Mjölnir. He is a son of Odin, the All-Father, and Frigg, his mother. Thor is considered a protector of mankind and is one of the most popular figures in Norse myths. His adventures often involve battling giants and other malevolent beings, and his stories have been passed down through sagas and epic poems.

Thor is a badass with a heart and a conscience. He hates injustice and will make sure it doesn't stand.

Thor is my favorite. I love warriors, not someone who just bores with talk of love and some nonsense. We all have needs. Nobody loves anyone.

19 Kartikeya Kartikeya, also known as Skanda or Murugan, is a Hindu god of war and the son of Shiva and Parvati. He is commonly depicted riding a peacock and holding a spear. Kartikeya is considered the commander-in-chief of the army of the gods and is revered for his courage and skill. He is particularly popular in South India, and his birth is celebrated during the festival of Skanda Sashti.

Once you start praying to him, you will get addicted. One gets too close to him. He blesses everyone with great knowledge, prosperity, and a happy life.

Kartikeya is the most powerful god, the God of war and victory, and the commander of gods.

Kartikeya is a great god, a formidable god.

Kali is revered as a destroyer of evil forces and is worshipped for her ability to bring about change and transformation. Despite her fearsome appearance, she is also considered a loving mother figure to her devotees.

Kali Maa is the symbol of victory over evil. She will not let any evil approach you.

He is considered the creator of the universe and is the embodiment of goodness, standing in opposition to Angra Mainyu, the destructive spirit. Ahura Mazda is not depicted in physical form and is instead represented through abstract symbols like fire, which is an important element in Zoroastrian rituals. Devotees worship Ahura Mazda through prayers, rituals, and the ethical conduct of their lives.

He is the only God to have a brand of cars named after Him.

23 Indra In Hinduism, Indra is the king of the gods and ruler of the heavens. He is also the god of rain and thunderstorms, often depicted holding a lightning bolt known as Vajra. Indra plays a prominent role in the Vedas, ancient Hindu scriptures, where he is revered for his martial prowess and as a bringer of fertility through rain.

Lord Indra has control of all the 5 elements - Earth, water, fire, sky, and air. He does good for good people and will not help bad ones.

Over time, the character evolves and becomes involved in the Norse pantheon, grappling with themes of destiny, fatherhood, and regret.
