False gods

     When I was younger, I had this unconscious belief that there was one and only one God, that YHWH, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, was the only true God, and therefore the sole God. The rest (the idols that the Israelites worshipped, the gods of false religions, etc) were silly or stupid fakes made by confused people. This was the idea I had of different religions, and other "gods".
     In some ways, I was right, and in some ways I was wrong, though as a child I am not sure that my understanding of various religions could have traveled much further.
