    (1) There is ONE and Only ONE Supreme Being -No Second=>Eko Na Advithiyam (Chaandogya Upanishad -Saama Vedam)

    (2) There is ONE and ONLY One Supreme Being ; But Learned Scholars Address the Supreme being in many Ways => Ekam Sat ;Vipraah Bahudhaa Vadhanthi (Rig Vedam- 

    (3) The Formless /Nameless /Attributeless / /Tagless / Immutable One and Only One Supreme Being is seen with Many Forms / Names /Attibutes /Tags --is due to Humans' limits of Comprehension

    (4) "Advitham Paara Maarthikam -Tat Bhedham cha Dvaitham ,Vyaavakaarikam" -Non-Dualism is REALITY - Seeing as Many is Mundane Outlook

    Because God is the Supreme Being, and obviously there can be only one supreme being. That's what supreme means.

    You can't have more than two supreme. There can be lesser versions of an infinite source, but not greater than it.

    The Bible names more than two dozen gods and many religions have more than one. Christianity has more than one but they get round it with the fiction of the Trinity. The Christian gods are the Father, the Holy Spirit and the Son, although as the Son has a human mother, he is really a demigod. There is a fourth god, Satan, but they call him a fallen angel rather than a god so they can make themselves believe they have a monotheistic religion rather than the polytheistic religion it really is.

    The Bible says there is one God almighty, the father, the creator, all powerful, all knowing, and supremely good.  There is no room for multiple deities in the Bible.

    The Trinity concept tries to elevate Jesus to the status of God, by saying that father, son, and holy ghost, constitute one god.  But if Jesus were God, why did he pray to his father and sit by the right hand of him?  Gods can't suffer, so how could he have suffered on the cross?  Where is the sacrifice?  A simpler explanation would be that God, the father, delegated Jesus, his son, some of his powers. 

    Older religions such as Hinduism have multiple Gods and multiple incarnations of the main deities.  But they are not respected as valid by Christians, Jews, or Muslims.
