'Does it matter what God's name is?'
Errr.....I beg to differ with you all.
Doesn't the bible say that 'Jehovah' is a jealous god and jealous for his name etc.
From evidence in the OT he's one bad tempered, irrational and violent God at times...in fact many times.
I think that he don't want to be called Fred if his name is really George. He just might smite you and yours to the tenth generation!!!
And those of you, ie buttlight, who say they love Jehovah, well, if your father thought it OK to command genocide.....would you love him unconditionally? Or are you just afraid that you might be included in his next massacre, so you 'say the words and do the walk' just to keep him appeased?
Look at some of the worlds worst dictators, Sadam, Hitler, Mussolini, Ghengis Khan etc.....they all had their good sides....and terrifyingly, their bad and ugly sides.
That's why 'I make it rain on the righteous and the unrighteous' don't cut no ice with me.
As I said earlier....'maybe I love Jesus,' I can understand someone saying...but Jehovah? I've got to wonder what you're afraid of!
