I believe the term "gods" was used in irony, and was a TITLE, since in a few places in Deuteronomy, judges were called "gods." And they were human judges.I believe he meant what he said when he said, "I said, ye are gods". Don't you?
That's not what he said. I believe you are paraphrasing your traditions into what he said.
completing the above phrase,
There is no god besides me - implies there are other gods, they are not beside him
There is no god like you - implies there are other gods that are not like him
The fool says "there is no god"
So, ripping the verses out of context only serves your false traditions. Why can't you accept the Bible's message. None of the verses you list state that there are no other gods. The Bible repeatedly states that there are other gods, both old and new testaments and that there is no other god like Jehovah, he alone is our Savior. There is no other Savior. He alone is Savior, but we know that God, His Father and Our Father is not our Savior.
I am not ripping any verses out of context. That is what is done in Mormonism. Theo and I have both shown you dozens of Bible verses that clearly say that ONLY ONE GOD EXISTS.
HOW does God saying "there are no gods besides Me" imply that there are other gods? God didn't mean there were no other gods standing NEXT to Him, but that there are NO other Gods APART FROM Him. That is what "besides" means, BoJ.
