Sounds like "L" might have a little Mormonism in him.
Not at all. But the mormons do hijack this and play it for all they can get. As i said before this subject gets dense pretty quick if i could upload PDF's here i could post the Scholarly papers on this subject of other gods in the Hebrew Bible. You can let me know if thats possible ?
anyone interested Deut 6:4 explicitly states the nations were given over to worship other gods.
And beware lest you raise your eyes to heaven, and when you see the sun and the moon and the stars, all the host of heaven, you be drawn away and bow down to them and serve them
, things that the LORD your God has allotted to all the peoples under the whole heaven
. But the LORD has taken you and brought you out of the iron furnace, out of Egypt, to be a people of his own inheritance Deut 4
In the ANE sun moon stars ect ere all deities. After Babel God had enough and gave humanity over to idols/gods and started again with Abraham.
But to address the OP The Divine council is made up of a 3 tier hierarchy.
God (The Holy One Of Israel) El
Sons of God (little g gods) Bene Elohim/Bene El
Angels Messengers = Malakim
The sons of God show up in Gen 6 and in Deuet 6:32 The nations who are given over to idolatry are given over to worship these sons of God aka gods. The reason one can Be a monotheist and still have other gods is because the elohim/god is just a place of residence term, i.e if you are a god you are from the other side, the problem is when people heard the noun g-o-d the attach a set of attributes to it that are only ever attributed to the Most High, but demons are called gods, angels are called gods, departed human beings (Spirit of Samuel) are called gods. There is a lot more to this but hope it helps get things going.
