You claim that the word "God" with a capital "G" refers to God himself, and the word "god" with small "g" refers to humans.
So, what do you think of this verse:
od of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. (From the NIV Bible, 2 Corinthians 4:4)"
Now which G\god is that ? the father or the son?
It should've been written as "The G
od of this age....." since the same Greek word was used for Jesus in describing him for being a "God".
well, so how many gods do you have in the Bible?
alot of gods
It is quite unfortunate that in the old Jewish culture, people used to be named "Godly" names.
Let us look at Psalm 82:6 "I said, 'You are "gods"; you are all sons of the Most High.' "
"gods" here in Hebrew is "Elohim", which is plural of "EL". It is the same exact thing as "EL" used for Jesus in Isaiah 9:6, since "gods" is a combination of several "EL"s. And as clearly shown here, for someone to be called "god" or "God" in the Bible it wouldn't make him GOD Almighty Himself, the LORD or Jehovah.
I also want to point out that ANY "Son of GOD" in the Bible is a "god" or "God" as clearly shown in Psalm 82:6
Abraham called a mountain
"The LORD will Provide" (Yahweh Jireh). "So Abraham called that place The LORD Will Provide (Yahweh Jireh). And to this day it is said, "On the mountain of the LORD it will be provided. (From the NIV Bible, Genesis 22:14)"
Ezekiel means "Strong God". It also means "Yahweh is Strong God".
Israel means "Challenge God", "he struggles with God", or "fight with God". It also means "Defeat God".
Gabriel also means "Strong God".
Eliadah or Eliada means "God knows".
It is important to know that, this "God" title in the New Testament was given to others beside Jesus as well.
It is not the unique "The LORD" or "Jehovah"
title that was given only to the Father, was given to Jesus. No where in the Bible was Jesus given such title
wating for the answer
