And God said, Let US make man in OUR image, after OUR likeness (King James Version, Genesis 1:26)<quoted text>You've been schooled and proven wrong over and over. You are too dumb to realize it and would be too ashamed to admit it even if you realized it. You are a guy who believes in fairy tales and has imaginary friends roaming the clouds. When Jesus Christ is all you need.. Uneducated people in ancient times had the excuse of ignorance for believing such crap as false Gods... Your excuse is sheer stupidity. Just messin with ya Liam you are a good guy just dumb...
Get into a good bible teaching sunday school boy ya hear?
Creation was by committee...
Thou shalt not revile the Gods (Exodus 22:28)
Do not insult those foreign Gods, just don't worship Them, either... IF you are one of the children of Israel, that is.
And Joshua said unto all the people, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Your fathers dwelt on the other side of the flood in old time, even Terah, the father of Abraham, and the father of Nachor: and they served other Gods.(Joshua 24:2)
And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the Gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.(Joshua 24:14 15)
Here one can see that the children of Israel were given the choice, serve Yahweh, or go back to worshiping the Gods of their ancestors or the Gods of their neighbors, the Amorites. Such a statement is hardly consistent with the notion that there is only one God in the entire universe, but it is consistent with the understanding that there are many true Gods.
Of course, there is a fair bit of cheerleading in the Bible that STILL points to the existence of other Gods: "Among the Gods there is none like unto thee, O LORD" (Psalms 86:8) and "For I know that the LORD is great and that our Lord is above all Gods." (Psalms 135:5) Ye3ah, yeah, yeah... my Gods are better than your Gods.
