God's Name

February 14, 2010
Does anyone know god's name anymore? When I say "Oh my god!" I get a chorus of "Don't take god's name in vain!"
People, people, god's name isn't God. No, god's name is Yaweh. (This is the Judeo-Christian version, of course) Besides, in Christianity at least, it's perfectly fine to say Yaweh now. When the veil broke after Jesus was resurrected, the common person was allowed to speak to god on their own and speak his name. In the Jewish belief, it is still bad to say Yaweh.

So, please, people, remember that god's name is Yaweh, not god.

I agree with the previous two comments. God has a variety of names, God, Yahweh, Jehovah, the Great I Am, the Alpha and Omega, Reedeemer, Healer, Lord Almighty, The First and Last....None of which should be taken in vain!

Read the Bible. Yes, God's name is Yaweh, but it is also GOD. When He said not to take the name of the Lord in vain, He meant all of His names: Yaweh, Jesus, Lord, and GOD.
