No need for apology BLL.<quoted text>Forgive me for my intrusion, but I saw your post and felt compelled to answer. Again, I hope you can forgive me.
First, the capitalization and such of the letter "G/g" in the bible is strictly based on the beliefs of the translators. In Hebrew and Greek, there were no upper or lower case letters. Therefore, each and every time the term was used in scripture, the term was identical each and every time. To give you an illustration, I'll quote a few verses while providing the exact reference number that directs us to the Hebrew rendering of the English term.
For the LORD your God [H430] is God [H430] of gods [H430], and Lord of lords, a great God [H430], a mighty, and a terrible, which regardeth not persons, nor taketh reward.
And God [H430] spake all these words, saying,
I am the LORD thy God [H430], which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
Thou shalt have no other gods [H430] before me.
For all the gods [H430] of the nations are idols: but the LORD made the heavens.
Then, as men, but still called "gods" and with a lowercase "g".
Thou shalt not revile the gods [H430], nor curse the ruler of thy people.
And to add an interesting development...
For you have made him a little lower than the angels [H430], and have crowned him with glory and honor.
And now, the English translation with the reference number to the Greek rendering...
For though there be that are called gods [G2316], whether in heaven or in earth,(as there be gods [G2316] many, and lords many,) But to us there is but one God [G2316], the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.
Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods [G2316]? If he called them gods [G2316], unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken...
As you can see, in each and every case, the same exact term is used, whether it be used to identify Father, men, or even angels. And what we must take into consideration is that, if the term used is identical, then so must be the definition. The difference, then, would have to be in the context of the surrounding content.
Again, I apologize for my intrusion. I hope I've helped, though.
Until next time, my friend...
I have always thought this as well and I appreciate your help. Thanks and you didnt intrude. Have a great day BLL.
