It is interesting to note that the Christian God might not be the only one that Christians are supposed to believe in. And this is why:
The ancient Hebrew word for ‘God’ is Eloah, and it shows up about 250 times in the Old Testament, but the plural word for ‘God’ is Elohim, and it shows up about 2500 times in the Old Testament. A literal interpretation of Genesis 1 would be: ‘on the first day, GODS created the Heavens and the earth.’ Furthermore, God says that you must only worship one God, the jealous one. He doesn’t say that he is the only one.
You can argue that ‘Elohim’ is referring to the Holy Trinity, but that only shows up in the New Testament, not the old one. On top of that, if the ‘gods’ was referring to the Trinity, does that make Jesus and the Holy Spirit gods too? There are some verses where God says that he is the Lord, and the Lord is one, but that also contradicts the Trinity, so where does that leave us?
The Bible mentions other Gods too, like Chemosh, Dagon, Nisroch, Nergon and Rimmon. Sam 5:2-3 is an example of Dagon and his temple.
So we are left with lots of Gods, a Trinity, or one lone God; all of which are contradicted by other verses from the Bible itself.
