Default theological question: what are the other 'gods' that are talked about in the Bible?


are they inherently evil, and where do they come from?

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.

Sometimes they are just too evil. If you have seen a deliverance session once, you would see how glad they are about the suffering they bring to people. They hate humans in a way that is difficult to understand...I mean, even evil humans need a break, but demons seem to work 24/7. They hate and envy us because they know they can't be redeemed as we can.

But since they are very hierarchical, I guess they would have their butts kicked by their chiefs if they don't work very hard with their evil actions.

A good book with deep study of those evil spirits is:
"Angels, Satan and Demons" by Robert Lightner.
A more practical one would be "Prepare for War" from Rebecca Brown.

"And the Elhoim said, 'Let US make man in our image and after our likeness'; ONE of them said, "I will place enmity between thy SEED and the SEED of the woman.'" This latter statement stated to a creation of yet another "god" they called Satan (adversary) who was around concurrently.

Genesis, to me, says there were several/many whom the Bible referred to as "gods," especially where/when the creation of Earth man is concerned. Not all of them seemed to like each other. The duality of GOOD and EVIL, LIGHT and DAKNESS, has forever played itself out on the planet.

In addition, it would seem that we have at least two distince "seed lines" who are to be enemies until Gabriel toots his horn.

Since everything is relative and, amongst humans, subjective, besides the suggested differences between the creations, throw in the mix of religions and we can see how far that enmity has taken us.

There's some interesting stuff in the Popul Vu that bears on the "gods" and their creations, too.

Thanks, Sat. Also remember that to rebuke or dispel demons requires the authority behind Jesus' name. On the other hand, the book of James merely tells us to resist. The name and the blood of Jesus are miraculously powerful against the enemy of souls. I believe that Lucifer hates and envies us because we are created in God's likeness. We are the only beings in God's creation who can create a new life. This is the basic purpose of sex, and look what's happened to it! Also, Lucifer hates and desparately tries to destroy anything that displays God's love for us, anything pure and innocent is ridiculed by him; anything that points us back to God and our need for him is a target for Luciferian organizations, as you can see in the news every week.

Sorry Barbara, but the right interpretation of Elohim is the plural person of God, meaning the Trinity. God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit decided to create man. It has nothing to do with creation of other gods.

And when God says that he will put enemity between the seed of Eve and Satan, He was saying that eventually Eve would have a seed (a distant son, Jesus) who would defeat Satan. This is the first promise and prophecy about Jesus. The rest of the paragraph says that Satan would bite His heel, meaning he would hurt Jesus at the cross, but he would be crushed by Him (totally defeated at the end).

Quite nifty little interpreting there, Sat... You don't have to explain, it's self-evident.;-)
