    Many human names are being written differently in different languages. God is not tittle, not the diploma, not the affiliation. You can not become Jesus Christ.

    Actually if i have understood correctly, Jesus was a title he gained when he become enlighten in a very young age, So yes if a Christian become enlighten from his/her practice they will be called Jesus just like in Buddhism, Buddha is not his name it is his title. Sakyamuni was his name or before enlightenment, his earth name was Siddharta Gautama.

    Just like It says Joshua means "Yah saves." Joshua = Yahshua = Yah + shuah. Yah is short for Yahweh, and shuah is from yeshuah which means "to save, save alive, rescue." In other words, the more appropriate translation for Jesus' name is "God rescues."

    I can add this from Who Is the "Anointed One" in Scripture?
    The term "anointed one" is used several times throughout the Bible and in several different situations. For that reason, we need to understand right off the bat that there isn't a single "anointed one" in the Scriptures. Rather, the term applies to different people depending on the context in which it is used.


    In most cases, the "anointed one" being described is a regular person who has been specially set apart for God's plan and purposes. However, there are other times when the "Anointed One" being described is God Himself -- largely in connection with Jesus, the Messiah.

    Buddhism is different from Christianity. In latter the God has name: ``I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.'' Psalm 91:14. I feel, that the name of God is simply God. Yes, it sounds different in different languages, but many human names are being written differently in different languages. Yes, the words God and Jesus have meaning, but majority of human names are simply the words from dictionary, e.g., estonian name Tamm means ``the tree''. God is not title or affiliation, or the diploma, which you can get: you can not become Jesus Christ, however you can unite with Him.

    The omnigod of the Abrahamics is unusual. Most theistic cultures conceive of many gods. Not all gods are conceived of as creators, and their powers and personalities vary.

    In my case, any gods I might choose to realize would be part of a purely subjective reality, they'd be my own creations.

    I am speaking in behalf of my Religion. So, in my Religion an idol is understood as a thing, which has stollen from True God His holy name. There are many idols, including the idol of dis-belief. A mental idol is any wrong idea about the True God, including the atheistic absurd idea ``True God is not existent''
