What’s your understanding of this

‘The idea that there are other “gods” who exist as real supernatural beings, albeit infinitely inferior to the only Creator and Redeemer, pervades the Bible. ‘

Is this what the Bible actually teaches, if not how to respond to people who teach ideas like these?

    Paul wrote in I Corinthians 8 that though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth…but to us there is but one God…..

    In Deuteronomy 32, we read:
    16 They provoked him to jealousy with strange gods, with abominations provoked they him to anger.

    17 They sacrificed unto devils, not to God; to gods whom they knew not, to new gods that came newly up, whom your fathers feared not.

    The word ‘devils’ is shedim. Some translate this as ‘territorial spirit.’ There are other spiritual entities that some call ‘gods’ who are not the true creator God.
