El/Il/Allah/Elohim had consorts before the emergence of restrictive monotheism. Yahweh also had a wife. You folks should do some research into ancient
Near Eastern belief.
However, if you are a devout christian or muslim don't. Once opened, your eyes will never look at scripture the same.
I've already looked into that and Yahveh did not have a wife, the Cannanites claimed he did but it's a play on future events. People were making
outlandish claims based on religions that came from what Nimrod or Ninus of Nineveh and his mother/wife Semiramis started when they instituted
themselves as the sungod and moongoddess deities and people started making idols and worshipping objects they made with their hands. Thats why the
Roman Catholic Church contradicts itself when they say their trinity is Father, Son and Holy Spirit, yet they call Mary the "Queen of Heaven" which is
a title that Semiramis took for herself who is the same person that the Babylonian goddess Ishtar was based on, and she was also known as Astarte or
Ashtoreth recorded in 1 Kings 11:5 when king Solomon turned towards worshipping her which Yahveh forbade.
Was judaism originally a pagan religion? Yes it was, the word pagan means "local" and nations back then each had their own national god or goddess
they worshipped. Sidon had Ashtoreth, Canaan worshipped Ba'al, Thrace had Cybele, Midia at Mecca had Hu'bal (Allah), Babylon had Marduk, Egypt had
Amun Ra, Israel had Yahveh, Greece Zeus. So is your statement made to cause christians to fear or lose faith? Do you really want to see what all the
other gods were? What is recorded in the bible is this. Prophet Isaiah already addressed this issue after Israel (northern kingdom) had already become
infected with idolatry. This is what he had to say:
5 O house of Jacob, come and let us walk
In the light of the Lord.
6 For You have forsaken Your people, the house of Jacob,
Because they are filled with eastern ways;
They are soothsayers like the Philistines,
And they are pleased with the children of foreigners.
7 Their land is also full of silver and gold,
And there is no end to their treasures;
Their land is also full of horses,
And there is no end to their chariots.
8 Their land is also full of idols;
They worship the work of their own hands,
That which their own fingers have made.
9 People bow down,
And each man humbles himself;
Therefore do not forgive them.
Their gods were nothing but statues that couldn't move or talk on their own, nor do anything good. We got the Livign God, he could do all that on his
So, we already know what was going on because it was recorded. Cool attempted fearbomb but: FAIL
