Re: theological question: what are the other 'gods' that are talked about in the Bible?
Well, here's my two cenz:
Both Old and New Testaments are replete with caveats and warnings regarding sacrifice to foreign gods, as well as building altars to them or worshipping man-made images, etc. The warnings usually include a reference to the fallen angels who rebelled against the throne of Heaven. These angels are quite intelligent and powerful. Lucifer was at one time the highest archangel and was the choirmaster for Heaven itself! It is no wonder that Satan would seek human worship. His temptation of Jesus in the desert included an invitation to bow down before him with the promise of unlimited power over all of the earthly kingdoms. Jesus refused.
