. . .names like Jehovah or Yahweh are frauds made by His enemies.
Seems likely to me that "EEYAAWEEEH!" was something these terrorists would yell when they jumped up from their hiding places set for an ambush.
Their potential victims knew these tribes by their war cry and gave it as a name for their murder god.

Hi All,

I've posted a few topics and responses in the religious forums here and thought it would be a good idea to get some feedback in terms of what people believed the "name of God" to be.

Is it a phonetic word? Is it a description of something spiritual? Is it literal (ie: "Todd" or "God").

What do you all think the name of God is.. This term is used throughout the bible.



I have heard that his true name is 64 letters long and is unpronounceable by the human tongue. I don't remember where i heard this though.

According to the Arthur C. Clarke short story The Nine Billion Names of God, you are stepping into dangerous territory by asking that question.

"Look," whispered Chuck, and George lifted his eyes to heaven. (There is always a last time for everything.)
Overhead, without any fuss, the stars were going out.

Which God are we talking about here? Because there have been many names for the Abrahamic deities.

Yahweh
Jehovah
El Shaddai (spelling?)
Allah
Elyon
Elohim
Adonai
I Am
ETC

At one point the Biblical God even identifies his name as JEALOUS. This is one of the reasons I find it funny when Christians won't allow themselves to say Jesus Christ or Oh My God as exclamations as though God's name is God and Jesus' name was actually Jesus.

Then there are non-Abrahamic gods like Zeus, Odin, Thor, Quetzalcoatl, Enlil, etc.


It doesnt matter what you call them, they are not stupid. Because your mind forms the picture, and your heart gives life to your curse they know exactly who you are talking about when you take one of their names in vain. Jesus could read your thoughts, and he knew what you were going to do before you even knew you were going to do it. Judas got the business end of that talent.

John 12:6 says that Judas stole from the money that he was supposed to be keeping track of on behalf of the disciples.
Was this something only revealed after Jesus was resurrected and he was having a discussion about Judas, with the remaining disciples?
If Jesus knew he was doing this, then did he just keep him on because that way someone would be available to betray him, without it having to be someone good?

What are you talking about? Here is my reaction to people telling me I should be worried about offending deities:



Put simply I don't believe any of these beings exist outside of mythology and the human mind. Judas was a character in a story, I suggest you re-read your Bible because it actually gives two conflicting reports of how Judas died. So here's the deal, I'll be scared of Jesus when fairies and trolls have you shaking in your boots.

There are many names for gods because there are many gods. If there was one true religion there wouldn't be so many religions.

There is one true religion, it is the one I believe in.
Of course it is only true for me, and everyone else has their own opinion about which one is true, so you end up with as many religions as there are people.

Because Jesus came to die for us and he knew he would need a betrayer, and none of the other discples would turn him in, Peter denied him 3 times, but he would never have turned him in. Jesus kept Judas close because he needed his betrayal to save us, hence "keep your friends close and your enemies closer". Jesus had to provide the ultimate blood sacrifice to allow all humanity to be redeemed. It didn't matter who betrayed him ultimately, someone had to do it and Judas was the weakest link, or so the current bible would have you believe.

The Book of Judas (gnostic text) says that Judas was not the evil betrayer people think he is, because the days before Jesus was crucified, Judas and Jesus were seen conversing alone many times, just them two alone. This gnostic text says that Judas was basically asked by Christ to betray him, and that Judas was allowed into heaven because he was doing Jesus' will. Now Jesus did often go off to teach his disciples one on one in many occasions, which is why you have the gosepls of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, each provided different lessons from Jesus. Well thats what this gnostic text says anyways. The reason why the gnostic texts were considered heretical and kept out of canon was because, in those time there were people writing letters to other churches pretending to be one of the disciples, or Apostle Paul and these letters were in fact lies used to lead these churches astray and many of them broke apart for it.

The subject is going in the wrong direction. Name of God is... God. He is.. His names like Jehovah or Yahweh are frauds made by His enemies.


God is just a title, which can apply to any deity. And his true enemies seek to hide and suppress his name.
Over 14 different bible still use God's name, and they are correct and you are wrong.

Well than you're using a highly subjective definition of truth. When I say truth I'm talking about OBJECTIVELY VERIFIABLE REALITY. Rather than derail the thread any further I'll leave a link and ask that you send me a U2U if you want to discuss this further.

One True Religion?

I'll just say matters of faith and relating to your existence and why you exist, is an individual thing and shirking that responsibility by joining a group to do it for you, is counterproductive and a negative for consideration for future survival of at least your own existence.

No name no label.. We need labels because we are many.. The creator is one, no label name, we hear sound because we need to, any sensethat humans have is not relative to our creator
