    One peerless eternal and unchanging Creator GOD and many lesser created 'gods,' (Hebrew: 'elohim'), which are beings of higher intelligence than current humans, created by GOD, (so not actual 'gods'), representing sources of inspiration both good and evil. 

    The good are also called 'angels,' (Hebrews 1:13-14), which exist in service of GOD and mankind within a system of 'irreversible goodness,' alongside all redeemed humans, (Romans 8:28) and who offer genius and gifts freely to mankind and ONLY within the ordinances of GOD. The evil are also called 'demons,' which are morally depraved and exist within a separate irrecoverably evil system along with unredeemed humans, which Jesus referred to as 'Mammonas,' (One of the names given to their highest ranking authority, Matthew 6:24).

    According to Christ, GOD the Father first 'draws' all men to Himself, teaching them using their own personal beliefs and cultures, (John 6:44-45), only afterwards confronting them with their 'sin,' (failures of their personal religious or philosophical system to achieve justice), and their individual need for His Salvation, representing the ONLY path to eternal life and genuine worship, (John 14:6). 

    “But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers.

    “God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” (John 4:23-24).

    "No Chance Without Jesus" said

    "Deuteronomy 6:“Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one!

    Oh there were false gods a plenty but they were not actual gods."

    RESPONSE: GOOD ANSWER AND FROM THE BIBLE. ALSO ANGELS, MOSES, THE JUDGES OF ISRAEL AND SATAN AND DEMONS ALL ARE CALLED GODS SOME GODS LIKE SATAN AND THE DEMONS ARE CALLED WICKED BUT POWERFUL GODS, SOME ARE GODS BECAUSE THEY ARE MADE GOD BY GOD LIKE THE ANGELS, MOSES AND THE JUDGES OF ISRAEL. THEY ARE NOT GOD ALMIGHTY LIKE JEHOVAH NOR ARE ANY OTHER GODS ALLOWED TO BE WORSHIPED BUT GOD. GOD LITERALLY

    MEANS POWERFUL ONE. MOST LEXICONS SHOW GOD BEING USED THIS VARIETY WAYS.

     BUT YOU DIDN'T ANSWER THE SECOND HALF OF THE QUESTION.

    John 4:24 sums that up. 1. "Spirit" (from the inside out) 2. "Truth" (How things are done), 1 Cor. 14, 1 Cor. 16:2, 2 Cor. 9:5-7.

    RESPONSE: YOU ANSWERED SOME BODIES QUESTION BUT NOT MIND.

    RESPONSE: REALLY EXCELLENT POINTS THAT ARE TRUE ACCORDING TO THE LANGUAGE, HISTORY AND THE BIBLE. YOU DID NOT USE ANY SCRIPTURES TO SUPPORT THIS POINT. ALSO THEIR ARE ALSO WICKED GODS THAT ARE TRUE GODS LIKE SATAN AND DEMONS 2 CORINTHIANS 4:4.

    ROMANS 8:28 YOU MENTIONED IS NOT A SCRIPTURE. I BELIEVE IT WAS A ACCIDENT.

    THE “B” PART OF THE ANSWER IS STILL SORT OF AMBIGUOUS IN YOUR ANSWER.

    Just one: The Institution of the Lord's Supper

    Luke 22:14  And when the hour was come, he sat down: and the twelve apostles with him. 

    Luke 22:15  And he said to them: With desire I have desired to eat this pasch with you, before I suffer. 

    Luke 22:16  For I say to you that from this time I will not eat it, till it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God. 

    Luke 22:17  And having taken the chalice, he gave thanks and said: Take and divide it among you. 

    Luke 22:18  For I say to you that I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, till the kingdom of God come. 

    Luke 22:19  And taking bread, he gave thanks and brake and gave to them, saying: This is my body, which is given for you. Do this for a commemoration of me. 

    Luke 22:20  In like manner, the chalice also, after he had supped, saying: This is the chalice, the new testament in my blood, which shall be shed for you.

    You could argue that the first commandment acknowledges the existence of other gods...
