No, that's just another manipulation. Jealousy and love can't live in the heart of the righteous. If it's truth, no coercion need be involved.
jealousy doesn't have to involve coercion though.
That statement in biblical terms is used to convey that there will be punishment for not following the one true God. Can't read the original text to say it's misinterpreted.
i believe yes
According to some writings, Gods name is /Jeolous!
It is said in the Bible that God is a Jealous God. But when we think of jealousy, it usually means we envy something that someone else has.
In the Bible God's jealousy means his unending love, care and cocern for his people.
Not jealous but certainly selfish.
One definition of jealousy is: "solicitous or vigilant in maintaining or guarding something".
God knows it is best for everyone that they revere and honor Him above anyone and anything else. So, because of His love for us, He is a jealous God.

Yes, definitely, but only with Himself.
If man worshipped God, he must know God

his thinking or imagination. Worshipping God
in wrong ways is more harmful than worshipping idols.
Repentance is easier in the latter circumstance.

No. God is good and who ever is trying to put something else in your head you shouldnt listen to. God is greatness nothing less.
Yes, that's why he says no less than 38 times only worship me. Which means he knows that there are other gods but he's telling you he's the best one so only pick him.... or burn forever. Egotistical, egocentric, manipulative, jealous... and kind of a jerk too.
his priests are for sure but if he does exist I doubt he cares how you find your way to him if you do
If God is a jealous god, who is he jealous of? That's what I want to know. Can't be jealous if you are the only god in existence.
jealous of anyone that takes our attention away from Him. The way i understand it, He knows that's what will make us happiest, to put our full attention on Him.
I suggest you question god every chance you can, but always love him; if only as a concept.
