Moses stated that God was one in Deuteronomy 6: Scholars have long assumed that 'eloheynu is a plural form of the Hebrew word 'elohim. Because of this assumption, theologians have concluded that the Israelites understood the triune nature of God. Trinitarians believe that this verse means that God is one being composed of three distinct but inseparable persons, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Binitarians also believe that 'eloheynu indicates a plurality, although they believe that God is one "family" currently composed of the Father and the Son.

When you let the Bible clarify itself, it's apparent from the Greek text of Mark The scribe who questioned Yeshua confirms this understanding by his response: You have spoken the truth, for there is one God, and there is no other [allos] but He.
All indications from the text are that he agreed totally with what the scribe had said. Messiah called the Father the only true God in John John and Paul also made a distinction between the one true God and His son Yeshua the Messiah, as shown in the following Scriptures: We are in the true God, as we are in his Son, Jesus Christ.
This is the true God, this is eternal life.
We know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is no other God but one. Even the demons believe; and tremble! In addition to showing that there is only one true God, the Bible teaches that the Most High God has sons.

The main problem with writers like Joe (and to be fair, that’s a Tiny group) is that they destroy the dreams of the rest of us, I’ve always been a pretty good writer and at times I think maybe I should start blogging and try to build an audience, but then you read a Posnanski piece like this and you realise, why bother, I’d just be wasting everyone’s time, why pollute the world with my.
