The word "God/theos" as a common noun can be applied to many things. As Paul said "there are many gods."
Yes Paul says there are many called gods but you fail to continue reading where he says but to us (referring to believers) there is but one God the father...He also acknowledges that not everyone has that knowledge
read it slowly...
5 For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,)
6 But to us there is but one God, 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.
7 Howbeit there is not in every man that knowledge
: for some with conscience of the idol unto this hour eat it as a thing offered unto an idol; and their conscience being weak is defiled.
This is why you are so incongruent, because although you acknowledge it as to false gods, you don't accept that "theos" is applied by the Father to his agents.
Applied by whom? Paul says we have one God...
They are not "false gods" as you like to make out.
They must be since Jesus acknowledges the father as the only true God...
And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God,
and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
Although you assert the Father as your God, it is clear you don't agree with the way he operates.
I do agree with how he operates...
Thou shalt have none other gods before me.
Ye shall not go after other gods, of the gods of the people which are round about you;
Take heed to yourselves, that your heart be not deceived, and ye turn aside, and serve other gods, and worship them;
You on the other hand are promoting other gods to serve.
The Logos is ruler over all creation: always was - always will be. The Logos implements the will of God. There is no access to the Father, but by the Logos. Therefore claiming the Father as God will get you nowhere unless you understand who the Logos is, and what he does.
That does not make the Logos God.
So you contend with Jesus in John 10:34-36, who included himself as an anarthrous-predicate theos.
John 10:34-36 would make you a god also ...Are you a god? I tried to explain to you that the Hebrew understanding differs from the Greek. The word used in the OT where Jesus quoted from says Elohim...This is how the Complete Jewish Binle puts it...
“My decree is: ‘You are elohim
[gods, judges], sons of the Most High all of you.
He's on the throne of God.
And so will believers, but that does not make us Gods...
To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.
He's on the throne of God per Jn 1:1c. If you deny the Word of God exercises the power of God, you deny the Father.
Believers also exercise the power of God...Exercising the power of God does not make a person God.
But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
1 Corinthians 1:18
For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
1 Corinthians 2:5
That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.
I'm going by what the bible says. I don't offer an opinion: I offer Jn 1:1c and Jn 10:34-36, which are key passages that repudiate your nonsense about "false gods".
So how many Gods do you have?
Those who exercise YHWH's delegated power are called GODS, or even God (common noun sense) as applied to the Logos.
Please tell us how many Gods you have. You are clearly claiming that Jesus is a God but when I ask you if Jesus is God you say no. How many Gods do you have?
The reason for this is that the Father is inaccessible except through the Logos
What reason? Are you saying that we need a God(Jesus) to get to the true God (YHWH)?
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
