No, Other people made the concepts. But god is lazy and would rather punish then get up and do something about it.

Assuming god made everything, then wouldn't of he also created the other god concepts by definition?

By saying "you shall worship

By saying "you shall worship no other gods" it implies either there are other gods and God is afraid of them, or all other gods are made up and should not be worshipped.  Christians have no problem saying other gods are simply made up, except their own.

Inderectly I guess. He's one crappy god if you ask me. If there was a god employment agency and he had this universe on his resume, he would never get hired.

God creates false religions,

God creates false religions, dinosaur fossils, atheists, and lack of evidence in order to test faith.  Evidence of God denies faith, which denies worship.  Therefore one must have faith despite all contradictory evidence, because it will pay off in the end.  Unless you chose the wrong set of beliefs.
