All of the references communicated by most people about god does not necessarily refer to the true and living God. None of the major characteristics that describe the true and living God correlate in any capacity to any false god.
All of the sixty-five false gods mentioned in the Bible have meanings for their names. Each meaning depicts the essential character and quality of each false god. Worship that is given to false gods is wasted because it negates the character and qualities of the true and living God.
For instance, there is a false god named Baal. The name means lord, master, habit, and control. If there is anything such as nicotine, alcohol, sex, pornography, or any other habit that is a controlling factor which dominates a human, it denotes giving worship or recognition to Baal.
The name Baal is combined with many other Hebrew or Greek words which reveal the habitual traits that are involved in giving worship to habits or Baals. There are many Baal connections like Baal Gad (master of fortune-lotteries-luck-sweeps), Baal Peor (master of sexual openings), and others that are all false gods.
All of the many Baals were and are based on controls of leverage, power, and/or blackmail. Controls are also based on being locked in or out and are called Baals.
The Baals were worshiped as fleshly oriented works. The only was to deal with the flesh is a work of the Spirit of God through Jesus Christ who is the great deliverer from the works of the flesh. The Spirit of God wars continually with the works of the flesh and the Lord Jesus Christ delivers all who call upon Him from the Baals infested in the land today.
The victory over false gods begins with repentance or a turning away from sordid habits. Then the other direction leads into the arms of Jesus Christ who is the only source of true deliverance.
