Exodus 34:13 - Why is God jealous?

Exodus 34:13
Break down their altars, smash their sacred stones and cut down their Asherah poles.

14 Do not worship any other god, for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God.

15 "Be careful not to make a treaty with those who live in the land; for when they prostitute themselves to their gods and sacrifice to them, they will invite you and you will eat their sacrifices.

16 And when you choose some of their daughters as wives for your sons and those daughters prostitute themselves to their gods, they will lead your sons to do the same.

Notes: When we look at this passage, we have to ask what it means when it says that God is jealous. Why would such a perfect god humanize itself in our eyes?

When I or anyone I know think about the almighty God that say a Christian or other such sectarian would profess, we don't get the idea that most of these "believers" see God as being a human in anyway.

Instead, we would think of God as a perfect, omnipresent "entity" that is male in it's projection. But does it make any sense whatsover for that entity to proclaim jealousy?

Is it perhaps because these beings....these gods...were less than perfect. Although this God that we all know as our creators is simply an advanced being from an advanced civilization from perhaps elsewhere in the universe...essentially, some kind of E.T.

That doesn't mean it's just an alien. There are many possibilities that would be a miss if we didn't take them into account. Perhaps God is omnipresent and perfect and chooses to manifest itself as say an "alien", which is of course E.T.

The thing though, is that E.T. doesn't have to mean just a physical being.

I mean if you do in fact believe in a Christian god or any other such god, do you believe that god is of the earth only? Or do you think of that god as of the universe or even outside of that?

So in that sense, god is E.T. no matter what. The question is in which ways god chooses to manifest itself.

Jealous God - What the book of Exodus tells us about the God of the Bible - What it means when God says he's jealous.

The jealous words of God.

What did God say? What does God think about "Himself"?

This has always been an interesting passage made for controversy as well.

Exodus 20

1And God spake all these words, saying,

2I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.

3Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

4Thou shalt not make unto 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 water under the earth.

5Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

6And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

7Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

So we see that God was indeed "jealous" of other gods. What reason would God have for being jealous of what many a Christian would say were false gods. In what way were they false?

In what ways is our Christian God NOT false?

Is it perhaps true that there would have possibly been feuds and even wars amongst the "gods"?

Were gods maybe some actual physical beings that humans interacted with?
