Christians take great delight about informing anyone who'll listen that their god is the only god, "The One True God" always has been and always will be. However, as so often happens in Christianity, the bible contradicts their beliefs and even a cursory look through the Christian bible reveals that there are many gods and goddesses mentioned therein.

If the Christians are correct when they say that thier god created everything and that the bible is true and the "Word of God" it does raise some questions.

A Few Of The Gods Mentioned In The Bible

Genesis 1:26 "Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness . . ."

Genesis 3:22 "And the LORD God said, "The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil . . ."

Genesis 11:7 "Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other."

1 Corinthians 8:5 "For even if there are so-called gods, whether in heaven or on earth (as indeed there are many "gods" and many "lords)."

When he was first invented Yahwah was just another local deity because it was an accepted and standard practice for the different nations and kingdoms to have their own gods. People of other kingdoms would regard Yahweh as just another local God and merely one amonst many.

The fact that the Jews also recognized other rival gods can be seen from the following passages:

Even Paul believed that there were many gods and lords in existence in either heaven or on earth.

11 kings 17:30 And the men of Babylon made Succothbenoth, and the men of Cuth made Nergal, and the men of Hamath made Ashima,

So, what has become of the likes of these gods? After all, they were gods of the highest importance, often mentioned with fear and reverence in the Old Testament and were seen as relevent and as real as Yahweh.
