Let’s take a look at the claim of people who deny God the Mother.
Slanderers falsely claim:
“The Bible uses the Hebrew word ‘Elohim’ to refer to Moses as well as other pagan gods in the singular form. It was also used to indicate the golden calf that the Israelites worshiped. Therefore, Elohim doesn’t refer to plural God.”
- Exodus 7:1 Then the LORD said to Moses, “See, I have made you like God to Pharaoh, and your brother Aaron will be your prophet.”
- 1 Kings 11:33 “I will do this because they have forsaken me and worshiped Ashtoreth the goddess of the Sidonians, Chemosh the god of the Moabites, and Molech the god of the Ammonites, and have not walked in my ways, nor done what is right in my eyes, nor kept my statutes and laws as David, Solomon’s father, did.”
- Nehemiah 9:18 “. . . even when they cast for themselves an image of a calf and said, ‘This is your god, who brought you up out of Egypt,’ or when they committed awful blasphemies.”
Let’s see the correct answer through the Bible.
Does the World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG) teach that Elohim refers to God the Father and God the Mother just because the word “Elohim” has that meaning? No.
Of course, those who make a false claim like this wouldn’t have found the true reason themselves.
They purposely missed the most important evidence with an evil intent in order to oppose the truth.
Then, what is this evidence? The evidence that Elohim refers to plural God who is God the Father and God the Mother is the word written in Genesis 1:26 that says, “Let us make man in our image and in our likeness . . .”
- 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. Because Elohim God who created everything including human beings said “Let us,” Elohim which is a word for Creator God refers to plural form of God who is God the Father and God the Mother.
Regardless of how the word “Elohim” was used in other verses or in Hebrew language, nobody can deny this fact.
Second, Slanderers conclude that the word “Elohim” is not plural by demonstrating some verses where the word ‘Elohim’ is used in singular form. Is their conclusion right?
In the Bible, there are many cases where the word Elohim is used in plural even when it does not refer to Creator God.
- Exodus 20:3 “You shall have no other gods (Elohim) before me.”
- Jeremiah 2:28 “Where then are the gods you made for yourselves? Let them come if they can save you when you are in trouble! For you have as many gods [Elohim] as you have towns, O Judah.”
Therefore, their claim that the word “Elohim” is not plural because it was used in singular form on many occasions is false. I want to stress again that Elohim that refers to Creator God has a plural form because Elohim God said “Let us” when talking about Himself. Though God repeatedly said, “Let us” three times in Genesis 1, they try to ignore and deny His word. What is their identity? Readers should think about this.
