  • Once again, this has always been one of the MANY biblical facts which have not allowed me to have any faith in Christianity or other Mono-Theistic religions... The very 10 commandments which were supposedly sent down as the unquestionable rules from "GOD" yet in those very commandments the idea of Mono-Theism is completely undermined... If a God is a God, one would have to assume that they are worth our honor... That's the point of God. It's a higher power, bigger than us... How can Christianity both provide proof of other gods and then refuse to accept that they exist? It's counter intuitive and senseless! Also, if you see these other gods as imperfect yet accept that they do exist, as evident by the commandment not to worship other Gods, you then would have to accept that THIS God is also imperfect, otherwise they wouldn't all be considered Gods...

  • Yes? I'm not entirely sure the point.... are you saying because they are mentioned in the Bible that they should be worshipped? That they exist? I do believe they exist, but that doesn't make them good or worthy of worship or even what people think they are. There were many "gods" who had identities based in what people believed of them. The Creator God commanded to worship Him alone. There is no god like him. But there is an imposter and an enemy who seeks to draw men's hearts away from the True God. The Bible is very clear on that.

  • That they exist sorry I didn't make that clear. I see to many times on here where people say only ONE GOD exists. I find it funny the very bible they quote says other wise. By the way the creator god is not his name it is God almighty the creator god refers to Amen-ra. An Egyption God of creation.

  • They are mentioned that they were worshipped as Gods. That doesn't mean that they were actual Gods. God tells us not to have any God's before Him. That means ones that we imagine are real. He doesn't mention if they are real or not, leaving us the choice to make up our own minds. There's the free will again!

  • It doesn't come out and say that anon :16. That is left up for interpretation and you know it. If there are NO other gods then why even mention them AS gods and not people.
