    In English, we call God the God. Thus, His name is God.





    Am I really wrong here?

    The video is blocked in my country.

    As to the rest, unless his name is Shiva, Vishnu, Cernunnos, Odin, Zeus, Set, Ra etc. If is she's a woman, unless her name is Kali, Durga, Cerridwen, Athena, Freya, Sekhmet, etc.

    God is a 6th century derivation of the proto germanic word godan which in turn came from the proto indo european word gutom

    Nothing really to do with the Abrahamic god but does link to odin (wodan). I am not sure when Christianity adopted the name

    Probably to bring pagans to the religion. The word hell comes from the place in norse mythology called Hel, if I remember correctly..also was a word to mean to cover.

    I call god also God. I don't see multiple gods. So for me there is just "God".

    No, I see nothing wrong if you call your god "God"

    It commonly understood in English that capitalized God referees the Abrahamic God since Christianity was enforced by Rome throughout Europe. However isn't this more a title than a name?

    God's name in the Bible, isn't this YHWH? Folks try to pronounce this as Yahweh though probably not the correct pronunciation.

    Well, if God is the only God, and His name is God, then no.
    Here is my problem with this, the God I know has another Name, and it is Hebrew. And it is also my God's Name has been given in more than one way. LORD, LORD God, GOD, Lord GOD, Jehovah, Yahweh, YHWH,
    Self-Existent, Who Is. the Uncaused Existence,
    Uncaused Reality.
    My question is, do you know your God whose Name is God? And if you where to explain to some how to know your God what would you instruct them?

    God has many names, He is Love, He is Reason, He is Science. He is Judge, He is Police. He is King. He is Luck, He is Creativity (that is why He can miraculously create the world from nothing),
    why? He is Spirit. The Spirit of all, which comes from God is the essence of God. God has Personality because persons come from God.
    Argument not of reason, but of authority. The Pope means nothing in my Religion.
    Can I get the God diploma? Is there an organization, which produces Gods?

    Yes.
