How Many Gods Are There?

Q. My question: Is there more than one God ? I interpret Genesis 1:26 to mean that there may be multiple Gods through out the Universe. Then God said, ” let us make human beings in our image and likeness.”

A. The Hebrew word for God is plural, even though He claims to be one (Deut. 6:4). Because of that plural pronouns are often used in reference to Him. Genesis 1:26 is a good example. Most scholars see this as a hint of the Trinity; Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

In a 7 chapter spread in Isaiah (Chapters 42-48) God made his claim to be the only God at least a dozen times. Perhaps the clearest one is in Isaiah 43:10-11. “Before me no god was formed nor will there be one after me. I, even I, am the Lord, and apart from me there is no Savior.”

If you take Him at His word, then He’s the Only God.
