Here’s the first argument of someone who asserts the pluarity of gods in Scripture.
In Genesis 1:1, the plural noun “Elohim” is used.
In Genesis 1:26; 3:22; 11:7 and Isaiah 6:8, the plural pronoun for “us” is used.
That “Elohim” and “us” refer to more than two gods is WITHOUT question.
In English, there are two forms, singular and plural. In Hebrew, you have three forms: singular, dual, and plural.
Dual is for two ONLY. In Hebrew, the dual form is used for things that come in pairs like eyes, ears, and hands. The word “Elohim” and the pronoun “us” are plural forms - definitely more than two - and is referring to three or more distinctive gods
Elohim is used 66 times in a row at the beginning of the Bible long before any Hebrew word was translated into the English
Genesis 1:26 And God saith,
Let us make man in our image, according to our likeness, and let them rule over fish of the sea, and over fowl of the heavens, and over cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that is creeping on the earth.
“Thou shalt have no other gods before me.”
“For thou shalt worship no other god: for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God.”
I don’t know Hebrew, so I can’t check up on any of this. I tried to counter with the Trinity, but with no knowledge of Hewbrew, I can’t really answer effectively.
When I mentioned the Trinity, the person continued with:
The “Us” is not the Trinity, nor is the godhead, it is gods (more than two),
“Make man in our image” if the godhead was three aspects of same god it would be “make them in my image” if you believe in the bible of course
1 Corinthians 8:5 For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, as there be gods many, and lords many,
1 Corinthians 8:6,
“For us there is one God, the Father, out of Whom all is, and we for Him, and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through Whom all is, and we through Him.”
The multitude of pagan god illustrate the truth to Paul, who mentioned “regarding gods many and lords many;” The very fact of them being in heaven or on earth proved that none of them controlled all things, as he was claiming his god did. The minor gods that Paul admitted existed controlled some things, for example the god of the woods looked after the woods and the god of the sky controlled the sky, but according to Paul his god controlled all things
I’m pretty sure Paul is only talking about beings called gods rather than their being gods, but I’m not sure how to convincingly back that up.
Thanks in advance!
