DS9: The Reckoning.
It's one of my favorite episodes from DS9.
It shows how an outsider (Sisko) has more faith in the Prophets than the one (Kai Wynn) who proclaim to have it.

Shouldn't the list include all Q episodes, who self-described as omnipotent?

I don't think so, because the Q continuum never asked or required the less powerful races to worship them.

While most definitely a topic I'm very interested in, I wonder if your focus is on "god (or devil) images" or philosophical-spiritual-religious issues.

TOS:

"Where No Man Has Gone Before" & "Charlie X" (can man handle god-like powers?)
"This Side of Paradise" and "The Apple" (false paradises)
"Wolf in the Fold" and "And the Children Shall Lead" (devil entities)
"Return to Tomorrow" (god images)
"The Savage Curtain" (good vs. evil)

TAS:

"Bem" (the TAS Episode that left me almost speechless...)

The thread does not ask for something specifically theistic. Nonetheless, the Q have godlike qualities (ominipotents and omniscience, although not necessarily omnipresence, not unlike Greek deities) and often play godlike role, particular in regard to judgement.

Re: Star Trek Playlist: Star Trek and Religion/Spirituality

TOS: Return of the Archons. Landru is treated pretty much as a god by those in The Body, and even resistance members like Reger and Marplon seem to call out to him when circumstances turn against them. Lawgivers with staffs and dressed like monks, and Landru's projected images make him look like Charlton Heston as Moses.
