I am having trouble defending an element of the Jewish faith on a debate board that does not normally pertain to Judaism. Being that I myself am not a Jew, I am not permitted to post this topic on any community board that is restricted to Jews only.
In short, someone is insisting that Jews adhere to either henotheism or monolatrism, both being forms of polytheism. I have argued that Jews are strictly monotheists, that Jews believe that only one deity exists.
So, how do I go about refuting this other person? I quoted from the Tanakh, but that doesn't seem to be sufficient.
The title of the debate thread in question is "Posthumous baptisms of Holocaust victims". If you want to see for yourself what is going on, then here is the address of the debate thread: community.beliefnet.com/go/thread/view/4...
