Are we looking for spelling or the noise it makes? Think about what I asked because many who claim to be christians do not. His name, the name of God
has a meaning, it is not about the spelling or the translations of sounds from any language, His name meant "I Am". It is what the words meant that
has never been lost and it means the same today as it did then. He is the great "I Am", the great self-awareness, that goes to the all knowing part.
As long as we are discussing names, "Jesus Christ" means God's forgiveness or God's salvation. The meaning of the names is what matters much more
than the sound or the spelling.
There are many people who believe themselves to be christans that think saying his name properly is what matters. The bible said that it would be
spread through the whole world and it was, in everyone's unique language, not in Hebrew, not in Greek, not in Latin. It was spread in people's own
unique languages. I was blessed enough to meet a woman who was a missionary, she went to Papua New Guinea and spent decades learning their language
and translating their language into a written language, they didn't have one. She went to where headhunters were, the first white woman they had ever
seen. They did not have a word for forgiveness, they did not have a word for wheat. Their food staple was the sap from a tree that they rolled until
it was like a hard jello. That was their wheat and that is the word she chose to explain what the food staple was.
I am a Christian and I about to offend many who call themselves such and do not understand what it really is to be a Christian. The sound of God's
name and Jesus's name is not important. It is not a trick or a game, it is about understanding love and forgiveness. It is about loving God with all
your heart and your neighbor as yourself. The bible says that many will come to him saying his name, properly, and he will say that he never knew
them. They did not help others who were in jail or in pain or in loss, they were more concerned about their own salvation and therefore did not love
their brother as they loved themselves.
I do hope that helped.
