The Bible teaches that the pagan gods are real beings:
“God stands in the congregation of the mighty; He judges among the gods.” (Psalm 82:1).
“For I will pass through the land of Egypt on that night, and will strike all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the LORD. “ (Exodus 12:12)
“Now I know that the LORD is greater than all the gods; for in the very thing in which they behaved proudly, He was above them.” (Exodus 18:11)
“For even if there are so-called gods, whether in heaven or on earth (as there are many gods and many lords), yet for us there is one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we for Him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and through whom we live.” (1 Corinthians 8:5-6)
The fallen angels-masquerading as gods and goddesses-convinced the ancient people that some of their great kings and warriors were gods and goddesses:
“In order to spread the gospel, the early church fathers (Lactantius and several others) started researching history books that were already very ancient in t heir time. The se included the history books of Herodotus, Strabo, Sanchoniathon, Ennius and others. The church fathers discovered the “gods” were simply deified men. The fathers identified where the “gods” actually ruled, died, and where they were buried. This evidence proved the Greek/Roman religion was false . Ultimately, the Roman Empire became Christian…. What we should take from this history is that, as Christians, we need to find the truth behind the myths and legends of false religions and cults. The church fathers dug up all this history from books already ancient in their time. They wanted to show from the sacred texts of the Greeks and Romans that their gods are simply deified men. Why worship what you know are not gods but just dead men? This information helped Christians ta ke over the pagan Roman Empire. We can use the same method today. If we expose the real history behind the false religions and cults from their own “ sacred ” texts, we will have a stronger chance to convert unbelievers.” (Ken Johnson, Ancient Post-Flood History, 2854-2990 (Kindle Edition)
There is only one true God. He has revealed Himself to us through nature and through His Son, Jesus Christ (Romans 1:18-20; Hebrews 1:1-2; 2 Timothy 3:16-17). Why not submit to Him today (1 Corinthians 15:1-8; Acts 2:37-38)?
