Re: theological question: what are the other 'gods' that are talked about in the Bible?
Sat, 3 "gods" in one is polytheism, poorly hidden. Monotheism is ONE god.
If the seed of the woman was Jesus, who is the seed of Satan? There has to be one for enmity to take place.
Best I can tell, there was only one group that were the declared enemies of Jesus and that was the jews of that day.
He threw them out of the temple for moneychanging, told them they were of their father, the Devil, a liar and the father of lies, and his works they would do. They chose Barabas to be set free and Jesus to be crucified. "GIVE US BARABAS!"
From what I have read of Christianity in Brazil, it is a mix of Voodoo, Catholocism, something like Santeria and pagan ritual. They keep the Catholic statuary on their altars but they use the blood of animals and chickens in their ceremonies.
