Mitzvah #13 - There is no other god besides for Gcd

It's a Mitzvah to not consider the existence of any other god besides for Hashem.

One who - Gcd forbid - entertains the existence of other deities, or entertains the existence of Hashem having partners, or considers Idol Worship to have any power, has denied a fundamental concept of Judaism.

One may not say or write anything which implies any of the above false possibilities. One must be prepared to die - or lose all ones money - rather than agreeing to any of the above.

Applies to everybody, all the time, everywhere.

Pasuk: You shall have no other gods besides Him (2nd of the Ten Commandments - Shmot 20:3)
