You mean - not everyone here is a monolatrist (monolatry - the worship of only one god although other gods are recognized as existing).

There's nothing like monotheism - existence of one and only god who is the almighty and creator. LOL.

The absolute is not God the almighty creator nor is it the Gods nor is it a being.

No, I meant not everyone here are monotheists.

Apparently, not everyone here knows how to read properly either.

There's nothing like monotheism.

So, no one can be a monotheist in reality.

The idea that one and only god exists who is the almighty and creator of the universe is a falsehood.

So, monotheism is a falsehood.

Monolatry ((monolatry - the worship of only one god although other gods are recognized as existing) is the religion followed by most people.

Until you can provide acceptable proof for your gnostic mono-atheist assertions, your assertion is yet another fart in the wind

You have no acceptible evidence for you monolatry claim either

not to say any of them arent interesting ideas, but you really need to get off your soapbox

I am using scripture to support monolatry and not yogic evidence which corroborates the scriptural exposition of there being several Gods out of which only a particular god is considered by a set of people as the true god with the rest being labelled unworthy of worship.

Babylonian cults, Judaism, Islam, Zoroastrianism, Greek mythology and Christianity are based on monolatry - the worship of one God chosen from a gang of many competing Gods.

Thus, the idea of there being one and only one being called God who is the almighty and the creator is falsehood.

Monotheism is a falsehood since there exist numerous beings called Gods with each being arrogating to itself the grand title of God Almighty and Creator of the universe.

Yogic experience confirms the scriptural revelations of there existing many Gods (beings).

The absolute is way beyond the inferior Gods of the various cults and religions..

Again you are lecturing me on how Judaism is practiced, when you lack the motivation to understand its fundamentals. I am not impressed with your recitation of scripture - its the context that matters, not the history. The only thing one can glean from reading translated scripture is an idealized literal fundamentalism, which really has nothing in common with the religion as it is practiced.

Unacceptable evidence. As I suggested initially when I laid out my criticism of your view.

Monotheism, Not Monolatry

The most effective challenges to this view were those of the Israeli biblical scholar Yehezkel Kaufmann and the American archaeologist W. F. Albright. Kaufmann and Albright argued that the explicit statements about monotheism do not tell the whole story. So far as we can tell from the Bible and from archaeological evidence, most Israelites were de facto monotheistic ever since the time of Moses. From its earliest stages biblical religion viewed all gods other than YHVH as ineffective nonentities. Rarely does a biblical character refer to another deity as doing anything.

Most Israelites accused of worshiping other gods seem to have worshiped only images, and do not seem to have believed in living powers behind the images as authentic paganism did; they believed, in other words, that the images themselves possessed divine powers and that the gods were the images and nothing more. This seems clear from the fact that when Israelite reformers purged idolatry from the land their efforts were confined to removing images and other objects; they never had to argue against belief in beings that the images represented.

Some Israelites also worshiped supernatural beings and phenomena that were part of the Lord's heavenly retinue, apparently in the belief that God himself required people to honor His subordinates. That the worshipers of these beings believed that God required men to worship them is implied by God's denial that He ever commanded the worship of heavenly bodies (Deuteronomy 17:3). There is no evidence that these worshipers believed these beings to be independent of YHVH or on par with Him.

Furthermore, the number of people who worshiped statues and supernatural beings does not appear to have been large. The book of Judges does not quantify its statements that the Israelites worshiped foreign gods, and the number of specific incidents reported in the book is small. That these incidents were regarded as having such disastrous consequences for Israel is probably not due to their prevalence but to the gravity of the sin and to the biblical doctrine of collective responsibility, which holds the entire nation responsible for the sins of even a small number of its members.
