    According to the SAB, the God of Abraham frequently refers to himself as one god among many, particularly in Exodus. Is he mistaken in thinking that there are others in addition to himself?

    You'll have to do better than that to argue your position.

    If you want to get into a quoting war, I can go toe to toe with you, and then some. You'll note that the right column is longer.

    Ps.82:1
    "God standeth in the congregation of the mighty, he judgeth among the gods."

    Who said anything about a quoting war? You'll have to hit up one of the right wingers for that.


    I like this site and the book it speaks of. Maybe you'd enjoy reading it.

    Doctor Truth Serum, could you give some references from Exodus? Referring to himself as one god among many sounds very much like something from the gnostic tradition.

    I can't get behind the Gods, who are more vengeful, angry, and dangerous if you don't believe in them!

    We're the same. We share the same history, the same heritage, the same lives. We're tied together beyond any untying. Man or woman, it makes no difference. We're human. We couldn't escape from each other even if we wanted to -- that's how you do it, Lieutenant! By remembering who and what you are! A bit of flesh and blood afloat in a universe without end. And the only thing that's truly yours is the rest of humanity. That's where your duty lies!

    According to this,
    http://www.fsmitha.com/h1/ch04.htm
    Saul might have been a closet Ba'al worshipper, David too.
    "Saul appears to have been close to the worship of the Canaanite god Ba'al. He named one of his sons Eshbaal (meaning Ba'al exists) and another son he had named Meribaal (meaning Ba'al rewards). Also, one of Saul's Benjamite clansmen was Bealiah (which meant Yahweh is Ba'al). " -from that site
    It describes David dancing for God, dancing being an element of Ba'al worship, or so it says.

    Do you have William Shatner's 'Has Been' album? It's a good one! The song I quoted from first was done with him and Henry Rolins. The album is good, I'm a big Ben Folds fan too!

    Thank you Brother Scribs for reminding us of the great truth of Muffy.

    Yahweh was a always an upstart among the gods, very jealous and insecure.
