o theos En o logos would not have 2 subjects; it would have a subject and 
predicate that would probably be understood as identical in reference.  
There is no hint of polytheism.
theos En o logos means that the logos can be understood as being God, but 
not that logos and theos are necessarily equivalent expressions.
