There could be any number of historical or semantic contexts within which the reference to God as "Shaddai" wouldn't imply polytheism. The pluralization is interesting, but I wouldn't take much from it without a deeper accompanying knowledge of the Hebrew language and perhaps also the historical facts (if they are even available) about how the Old Testament was written and studied.loseyourname said:I looked up the meaning of the Hebrew word Shaddai. It is the plural form of the word Shad, which simply means "powerful one." Apparently when the term is used in the old testament, it literally means "powerful ones" and is used as one of the names of God (implying that early Hebrews were actually polytheistic?).
