So many gods, so little thyme

The writers of the bible clearly believed there was more than one god, more than one deity who could grant powers to those who followed/worshiped him just like the Christian god. If God is the only true/real God, then who granted the Pharaoh’s sorcerers the ability to match Moses’ magic with their own special ‘rods’? Ex. 7:11, 12, 22

    What, no comment on how cute the title of my post is? Kidding.

    Nicole, thank you for this simple comment. I was waiting for someone to suggest the Satan excuse. As I’ve stated in a few of my others posts, it is clear that Lucifer, as well as his fellow rebellious Angels who dwelt with God in heaven BEFORE the world/Universe was ever created, were, in fact, gods. For some reason, suggesting that Satan is a god rubs many Christians the wrong way, even though the bible clearly depicts him as just that. BUT, I know you aren’t suggesting that the Pharaoh and his sorcerers were worshiping Satan. I BELIEVE you are speculating that the Pharaoh and his men were worshiping another false, made up god that absolutely DID NOT exist, and Satan sneakily used his magical powers to make it appear that their god was real. Am I right?

    Regardless, if the above is the acceptable explanation to the incredible feats preformed by the Pharaoh’s sorcerer for Nicole and her fellow Christians, I will accept that and put the check mark next to the box. Question answered. I wonder, does this also account for David Blaine and his clown cousin Chris Angel’s abilities?

    Just so we’re clear, understand, as a man who neither believes in God OR Satan, nor Baal or Ra, for that matter, that I don’t accept this explanation as I neither believe Moses nor the sorcerers preformed any of the feats attributed to them in the pages of the bible.

  2. Genesis 1:26
    26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

    Exodus 15:7
    11 Who is like unto thee, O LORD, among the gods? who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?

    The Bibles polytheistic? Yes.
