    No pun intended, but Jesus Chariste! The Bible (God himself), acknowledges more than one god exists?

    I'm crushed.
    What does this say about the moderm beliefs of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam? About the modern understandings of abcient translations and oral histories?

    You should keep reading he also says they are all false Gods.

    Who says that God?

    anyway, if the other gods are false gods doen't that still acknowledge the existence of those gods? It's not like saying they are false means they never existed in the first place..is it?

    . So are all gods including the King of gods, all imaginary beings that can be dismissed with an accusation of falsehood?

    I'm starting to question this whole god thing again.

    I'm still very surprised that Christians were one time open enough to admit there were more than one god, but that their god was a better god...or some such nonsense. Make me head spin.

    and thanks for the christian charity and concern. much appreciated.

    Up until the exile in Babylon, Jews worshiped more than one god. They took on monotheism as part of a deal to get back to Israel.

    Good, you need to ask these questions. However don't waste your time asking if you are not willing to hear the answers.

    What/who are the "other gods"? They are anything, or anyone that you put in a position where the you allow them to be your authority, ot the power you follow. They are not god's in the spiritual sense. Even the Pharoah did not have other actual spiritual beings as gods. He had magicians, and his own power (authority) that he exerted. He would even qualify as a god in the eyes of some.

    God Almighty showed Himself over and over to he the highest power, and True God. He will be demonstrating that worldwide someday, for one last time.

    Scriptures say that money, sex, food, drugs, or any other thing can be a god in your life.
    There are other spiritual beings, and I suppose one might even allow them to be gods as well, however, they are not said to be gods in the scriptures.

    Just an honest Bible study, if you really are questioning this, will prove to be helpful.

    So Christian tradition is just a made up new idea from centuries ago? God had no say in teh matter? What about the burning bush?
