Monotheism

Monotheism has been defined as the belief in the existence of only one god that created the world, is all-powerful and intervenes in the world. A broader definition of monotheism is the belief in one god. A distinction may be made between exclusive monotheism, and both inclusive monotheism and pluriform (panentheistic) monotheism which, while recognising various distinct gods, postulate some underlying unity.

An excellent video capturing a question about monotheism--about how the god in various religious texts says that followers should not hold other gods before them, otherwise they will go to hell (or that religion's equivalent of hell). The answer given is kind of...avoiding the question, as he goes to say what the religious texts of Islam don't say about punishment. I honestly think the guy has a great point about egoism--and other human qualities--being wrongly attributed to gods in so many religions. Perhaps this is because gods have been created by man. Or, at least if you do not believe that, you can at least admit that gods have only been described by man, and so we are limited by our own relations and feelings to describe various gods' feelings.
