Now I am sure many of you here have heard of this argument of Yahweh being equated to a Volcano Deity before. I would say probably by various people extracting verses from Exodus and the Duet.. However, if you are really curious of the extent this argument, I had decided to write two very in depth articles on the subject for your reading pleasure,... or hellish terror! I must warn the impatient as these articles are not short by any means. However, I tried my best to keep them as short as possible while providing as much content as possible as there is literally a Mountain of evidence and information on this subject.
It must also be noted that these articles do not go into Christianity as a whole or specifically deal with Christianity since these articles cover a time period before Christianity had come on to the scene. It's also important to note that Christianity itself deals with a lot more than "Mountain GOD" worship since it's really a mixed breed of various Pagan religions, cultures, oral traditions, rituals, and beliefs. However If you are looking to have a better understanding of what Yahweh is, or where Yahweh came from, these two articles also go very deep into helping you find the answer to those questions.
This first article goes over the basics to which primarily focuses on the bible and primarily in concerns to Psalms, Exodus, and the Deuteronomy. However, also covers many other sections of the bible, information about Yahweh, and supporting information to the Op's premises.

The second article here goes much deeper to help put the first article into a detailed understanding of Yahweh in relation to mountain GOD worship. This article covers a lot of ground that ranges from the Egyptians to modern day Abraham religions such as Judaism. :I have given much thought about posting this Satanical and blasphemous article on Newsvine, and it has been a while since I have posted such an article of evil. One may believe I have been tempered in the light, but yet I have a scorching urge to post such darkness of the flaming tongue. This to which I can not ignore or resist as it burns to erupt from within. And thus I have felt in the end that this volcanic subject deserved a bit of attention for a bit of candle lit enlightenment, flickering out from the ash shadows of darkness from which this volcanic beast hides.
Mountain GOD Worship: Yahweh, God of the Mountains.

EnjoyI remember as a child playing "King of the hill", and how when I ever laid a successful sack of the mighty mountain that I would be King of all the realms before me. Truly the most high is crowned the overlord of the kingdoms, and I would seek my wrath should my position ever had been challenged. It's a game I am sure many of us remember, but I wonder how many actually understand how true this game is to the history religion in ancient Mesopotamia. And how true it is to the wars where territories were associated with particular Mountain GOD's, all fighting to be King of the hill. This region of the world of mountain GOD's are often depicted with a father, a chief of the mountains that has often been referred to as "God of the Mountains", a crowned King and father of the GODs in ancient Mesopotamian history that has shaped Godly figures such as El, El Elyon, El Shaddia, Baal, Zeus, Yahweh, and many other mountain GOD deities throughout ancient times
