Christianity isn't a Monotheistic religion, but..

#1
A Henotheistic one.

Henotheism is the worship of a single god while not denying the existence or possible existence of other deities.

Best illustrated by Moses encounter with God, when he asked which God he was talking to.
The second illustration, was on the 10 commandments, when God himself acknowledged the existence of other Gods, and instructed that, ...thou shall not worship any other God apart from Me.
Have a pleasant sunday, and remember to tithe.

The concept of God and Jesus being one was a decision made by men. A council of the Catholic Church in their Ecumenical Councils sat down, discussed, and saw it fit that Jesus=God himself. Religion is full of crap.

Christianity has never been a Monotheistic religion since day one it has been a polytheistic religion all along .

Christians worship 3 main gods ie god the father, god the son and god the holy spirit
some christian sects are also known to worship mary mother of jesus

it was only in the 15th century that verses in the bible were edit to remove the word gods(plural) and replace it with god (singular).

example
the very first 4 verses in the bible (original text)

1 In the beginning the gods created the heaven and the earth.

2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the spirits of gods moved upon the face of the waters.

3 And the gods said, Let there be light: and there was light.

4 And the gods saw the light, that it was good: and the gods divided the light from the darkness.

Hii umetoa kwa bible gani? The best way to check if there are discrepancies between the Christian bible and earlier is to read Rabbinic writings, because Rabbinic writings are devoid of Christian influence.

Elohim , is plural. so, when the bible say, at the beginning there was Elohim, it simply means at the beginning there were Gods. El is in singularity .

Etymology of the name Elohim. 'Elohim' is a plural word,

You are right about the plurality, but does it mean they were referring to many "Gods" or in the case of Adonai - "many Lords" ?
