: God, Yaweh, etc. (see Zeus)
A Lesser God
: Satan, enemy of God (see Hades)

to think of Christianity as "monotheistic" is really not being realistic. It is nearly as complex as the heirarchy of the mythology of Rome or
Greece, and even moreso, if you start looking at the heirarchy within angels and demons...
You can lump them all together if you like....and try to pass it off as monotheism...just as I can put a bunch of apples and oranges in a barrel and
call it "fruit"...but it doesn't make them one in the same....
