The question boils down to how deities handle divided loyalties. Most don't take such things too well. Note that saying a prayer to a deity other than your patron is not a rejection of your patron in a polytheistic system -- but having two patrons is more problematical.
In this case, your GM created the issue by having Abadar be the deity to approach your character, even though that character had no inclination to serve Abadar. Since he created the problem, he should solve it.
Why should all problems be solved? Maybe the DM wants the character to have a problem. If that's the case, getting out of it by serving two deities will give them lots of opportunities to play with you. Such as always having the wrong deity show up at the crucial moment.After all, a dragon in the caverns is your problem. A good DM shouldn't kill you, quite, but toying with you is just fine.
That's exactly what I'm going for - I want my character to be conflicted. After his unfortunate revelation that he's a paladin he's spent a lot of time shouting at the sky "Fine! We'll have it your way!". Now, when he's shouting at the sky I want him to look in a different direction and be able to shout, "You too? Gods damn it.".
