NOPE. Elohim: If you must see it as plural it refers to the foreshadowing of the Holy Trinity: GOd the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit/Ghost. So actually it is plural and singular at the same time. The Holy Spirit is that which dwells among us at the bidding of God the Father.
It has also been argued - though i'm less inclined to see it this way - that the plurality of Elohim has more to do with the plurality of the characteristics of God.
