Wrong Names & Pagan Terms

by John
(NJ)

God is not his name (breaking command), and Christ is a pagan term, and there has never been a letter "J" in Hebrew, Latin, or Greek. Thus...no Jesus.

Names of God

You're right about the name we use for God. It isn't actually his name. The word is old Saxon and was used to describe the ultimate being, but it is the closest approximation of whom he is.

There are at least 16 names for God in the Old Testament alone and the most common is YHWH, but the problem is that the Jews considered the name so holy that they refused to put the vowel sounds on the letters (in Hebrew and Arabic each letter has three possible vowel sounds, get them wrong and you change the name eg Qalb in Arabic means Heart but Kolb means Dog!); and the truth is we have no idea how his name is supposed to sound!

As for the word 'Christ' it is the Greek equivalent to the Hebrew phrase "ha Meshiach". Both of them literally mean, "The Anointed one", which is what Jesus is, and as for the name Jesus it's simply the Greek way of saying Yeshua.

Hope this helps.
