Let’s find out why the arguments of the ones who deny God the Mother are wrong.
They say that the majority of the word “God” in the New Testament is singular, not plural. In the New Testament, the Greek word for God (Theos) is singular, and it is recorded 309 times in the New Testament; however, the plural “Theoi” is written only five times in the New Testament.
- Mark 12:29 “The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel, the Lord your God [Theos], the Lord is one.’ ”
Quoting this verse, they insist that God indicates Jesus is one, and it can’t be Ahnsahnghong?or God the Mother.
Let’s find out the correct answer through the Bible
Does it matter whether the Greek word for God (Theos) is singular or plural?
It is an undeniable fact that God referred to himself as “us”, regardless of how the word ‘God’ was written.
- Genesis 1:26-27 Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him male and female he created them.
God, who created all things and human beings, referred to Himself as “us” in Geneses 1:26 three times. Although the singular form for the Greek word God (Theos) was written, we can be certain from the word “us” that the Creator God is God the Father and God the Mother. Another argument of theirs is the fact that the singular form “Theos” is mentioned in the New Testament 309 times. If you compare the number of times the singular form is used versus the amount of times plural form “Elohim” is mentioned, 2,500 times in the Old Testament, overwhelming evidence points to the fact that God is more than one! Nevertheless, the above matter should not be based upon the amount of times a word is used. Should not the fact that God Himself spoke and had it recorded in the Bible determine what is most important?
Even if “God” in Greek is used in a singular form, one should not have an issue with describing God as “us”. It is a biblical teaching to describe God as one although they are two, God the Father and God the Mother.
Let’s take for example Adam and Eve… they are counted as two people; however, the Bible describes the two as one. Because of Adam and Eve, sin entered the world and death came to all men, however, that sin entered the world.
The Bible testified that sin entered the world through the one man Adam.
- Romans 5:12~15 Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man . . . Nevertheless death reigned from the time of Adam to the time of Moses, even over those who did not sin by breaking a command, as did Adam . . . For if the many died by the trespass of the one man . . .”
Why is it written in the Bible as if only one person sinned, even though it was actually two people who sinned? This is because the Bible considers Adam and Eve as one body (Gen. 2:24) but Adam is representative of both people. As we know, Adam and Eve were created in God’s image and in God’s likeness. Adam and Eve are the physical representation and copy of the invisible God. Considering two images came out, male and female, we can understand God’s true nature and original form.
God the Father and God the Mother exist, and we can consider Them as one; therefore, the fact that God is expressed in a singular form does not deny the existence of God the Mother.
