Q & A – God’s name

Questions:

  1. Is the name Jehovah really the scriptural name?
  2. How important is for people to use?
  3. Most of the bible translators have violated the holy bible by omitting or adding strange things at some bibles.
    I end up not trusting their teachings. Please, help.

Answers:

  1. Is the name Jehovah really the scriptural name?

No, it isn’t. But as I in fact already answered this before I will for now point you to my message “Q & A – Jehovah or Yahweh”

2. How important is it for people to use His Name?

Exodus 20:7
You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not leave him unpunished who takes His name in vain.

It is not important to use God’s Name.
In fact we don’t even know how to pronounce His Name. All you hear are wild guesses, and there is even a danger to use God’s Name lightly. A safe way to refer to God is to use the term “Father”, remember that the Jews out of reference for Him would also not use His Name.

3. Most of the bible translators have violated the holy bible by omitting or adding strange things at some bibles.

I don’t know where you got this from, but to put it like this I would call it an incorrect statement. It is true that in some accepted translations the translators preferred to use a different word as interpretation of the original, but this usually clarifies the original better than what was used in older translations.
However “translations” that were made, for a special organisation or “church” (sects) can have differences because they wanted the text to agree with their ideas. To me those books are not really Bibles.

P.S.: Facebook doesn’t allow me anymore to share these Bible messages in groups (except my own), and neither may I send a message to those who liked my messages to let them know where they can find me, as Facebook calls this “abusive behavior”. If you don’t want miss out on them, then join my group “The Worldwide Ekklesia” or follow me on Twitter: @schoemakerharry
