It seems to me there may be more than one god in the Christian bible. My reasons for this suspicion are two fold Firstly that the common name for god is Elohim which is a plural and derives from El (singular form for God). And secondly that in Genesis there is that part that says

Gen 3:22 And the LORD God said, "Behold, the man has become as one of Us, to know good and evil. And now, lest he put forth his hand and take also of the tree of life, and eat and live for ever"--

Taking into account the two above parts could there be more than one god in the bible?

I think there's he probably refering to the angels.

And remember that God has three parts, so..

Yeah, if you look at it, its kind of interesting how Greek and/or Roman mythology prallels Christianity, at least at first glance. There's a "head honcho," (God, Zeus, etc.) with lots of other powerful beings (Angels, the other gods, etc.)

Or maybe I'm just wrong.

It's called the 'royal plural'. it's the same you see when kings/queens speak of themselves as 'we' and 'us'. God is afterall the king of heavens.
