  • Everyone all over the world speaks a different launguage and Jehovah means God so maybe thats why we say God???

  • Being raised Catholic jeahova was not mentioned or taught.
    For me now, my spiritual beliefs include "God" but it is not related to the Bible, that is my opinion I'm not judging, and I know there are plenty of other secular believers who probably fall into this category.

  • Wait a second.... The Jew's call him Yahweh, and the Bible says that God told the Jew's I Am Yahweh so how do you explain THAT??

  • It's states clearly in the Bible that God has many names.

  • He told the Jew's (his original chosen people) that he was Yahweh. He also called himself Lord, Most High, etc. Of course those titles were originally in Hebrew, but that doesn't make their English (or any other language) counterparts unacceptable.

  • From what I understand, the Jews had many different names for God - from Elohim to YWH...
    And I don't believe it matters what we call Him.

  • "it basically says that GOD is like going up to your buddies and calling them SIR n MAM"

    I have never seen that verse in the Bible, nor anything like it. Could you point me there please so I can see for myself?

    I agree with another poster, God has many names, God wants us to have a relationship with him, on a personal level. Why not call him "daddy"? Is that a sin?

  • Jehovah, Yahweh, Elohim, God, Jesus, I Am....He is all of those and many more. I personally don't see what difference it makes.
