Anything that you worship is your god. The Lord God is the only true God.
If you worship satan, then he is your god.
If you dont worship God, then satan is your god.

Does this mean that the god of the Bible has been perpetuating a conspiracy against the other gods?

Everything you hear or read about God is nothing more then someone elses opinion. No two people think the exact same thing about God so if you ask me, there are as many gods as there are people. If you count those that worship more then one God then the Gods far outnumber us mere mortals.
Personally, I'm a Spiritual Anarchist. This life has never been about religion or even about God, it's about you. You can decide to be a good and decent human being, making the world a better place and growing in the gift that is your life, or you can blindly follow the dogma of others and drown in the ignorance they force upon you.
Religion is spiritual slavery and only you hold the key to your emancipation. Trust in God, not in the teachings of man. God will not lead you wrong.
Love and light,

Could you explain more what you mean about being a spiritual anarchist? I get the impression that we have relatively similar beliefs, but I couldn't have said it better myself that no two people have the same view on God.
You might say it was the God of The Bible perpetuating the conspiracy, but evidence points elsewhere...to Moses and his father-in-law who, seeing Moses judging the people one at a a time on a daily basis, advises him to teach them new laws and ordinances. So Moses trudges up into the mountain and returns with exactly what Jethro suggested. These were in fact nothing more than a constitution and enforced under the guise of one god not several.

Was the 1st commandment his way of turning people against the other gods? Does this suggest that he is about the same, power-wise, as the other gods becaue he couldn't just destroy them, thus guaranteeing (is that a word? ) that all would worship him?
