Prayer

Why does it seem that everyone wants to make it out that their religion is better then someone else’s religion? Why does there only have to be one true God, or one true way into heaven?
I have a belief there is more than one god in the world, because the Bible states. “Thou shalt have no other gods before me Exodus 20:3” (Concordance, 1999). As most of you should know this was “written” by God on a stone for Moses to take back to his people. I believe that in God saying “no other gods” God is acknowledging there are other gods in this world. Though, I believe he is also saying you should worship none of them before him.
I think a skeptic might say that Moses people and other neighboring nations had “made up” gods created for their own fantasies. Just like the golden calf that they were worshipping when Moses came down from the mountain and, that God was referring to that.
Though, my response would be in my mind if you are The God, alpha, and omega why would you even give fake gods any kind of a stance by calling them gods at all? The next commandment, “Thou shalt not make thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth” Exodus 20:4” (Concordance, 1999) covers making fake idols? So why would God make two laws on the same topic? This is of course unless they weren’t the same topic at all?
