Only one God?

It's very irritating, when you're reading historical stuff, and they 'reveal' that early Israelite religion was polytheistic, or that they worshipped a goddess. The implication is that the Bible gives an innaccurate view.

But the fact that the Israelites worshipped many gods is not news. The Bible makes this very very clear.

What the Bible says is that they should only worship one God. Not that they did. God didn't make laws to ban people from doing things they wouldn't have thought of doing anyway.

That says '1 GOD', not 'I GOD', as several confused people read it :-)
