Hi. Shamma and others will probably tell you they believe in one God. I would like to make this clear. The Bible says that there is one God above all. It is helpful to define what the word 'god' means. It means mighty or powerful one, and the Hebrew word,'el,' translated as god, is said to possibly come from a Canaanite word for god. The etymology of the word 'el' is not clearly known. The God of Israel is a living God, and made Himself clear to the nation. Elohim, in essence the plural for god, signifies the majesty and absolute power of God above all, but does not mean multiple gods in one, according to the God of Israel, or true God.<quoted text>
why can't christians even agree on how many Persons/Beings to worship?
NQ believes in 1 God
you believe in 2 Gods
Shamma beleieves in 3 Gods
The Bible describes others as gods, or el, occasionally elohim. Jesus, for instance, is said to be a mighty god in the sense of having been given power and responsibility. Others, such as angels and human judges, are also described as gods in the Bible.(powerful ones, el, or elohim) The devil is also figured as a god, the god of this world. So the word god can be used in various contexts, although to true Christians there is only one true God and God is not a trinity.
Jesus prayed to God in heaven. Jesus was not "God on earth" as if he were part of a trinity and 100% man and god at the same time. Adam, the first man, came from the earth. Jesus came from heaven. He described it this way, at John 8:23: He said to them,You are from below; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world."
Jesus, although he came from heaven, was a man and not God on earth.
