    The worst is when they don't know how to say it as Jeehovah or Juhhova and they end up saying ....

    JeuhHOvuh all slurred together and at your expense of course.

    I`m a little confused by you guys on this thread , long timers especially

    .The Hebrews , according to the Old Testament , never knew there God by the name Jehovah .They only knew him by the four letters of the Hebrew alphabet YHWH and the priests filled in the vowels., and it wasn`t Jehovah

    Shattered- origins , sorry to inform you , Jehovah is not a made up name of Jehovah`s Witnesses .It was made up, if you will by a Spanish Catholic Monk in the 13th Century , and has been used ever since by Religous scholars of Christendom ever since , and is still used in Christendom today , apart from Jehovah`s Witnesses .

    The International Bible Students Association under J.F.Rutherford took the name Jehovah and re-branded his religion as Jehovah`s Witnesses , did he have a legal right to do so ?

    The name Jehovah does not automatically associate itself with Jehovah`s Witnesses , many of Christendom`s

    religions / buildings / literature , even secular buildings have the name Jehovah on it All over the world..

    The name is not exclusively related to the religion of Jehovahs Witnesses.

    The name Jehovah was an invention of the 13 th Century by a Roman Catholic Monk.

    My abhorrence of the word has nothing to do with the historical merits of the name.

    i used to cringe whenever i heard all those lunatic female dubs talk about jehovah as if he were their own invisible best friend--almost as if he lived in their wardrobe. like their personal spiritual bank manager. barmy old bats.

    also--the use of the word jah. a year or so back i was on one of the fake facebook jw dating groups---and the amount of times our dear friends in africa who used the word jah was beyond ridiculous. i cant understand why the wts dont stamp it out.

    why dont they just call him joe ?.

    Hi cofty ..you mention the 'sound ' of the word, I wonder if there is a significance. Is your abhorrence / reaction the same if you see it in print ?

    Best wishes.

    It's a control word, used by perverts (Governing body), based on an imaginary psychopath.

    Since I was not raised in, whenever I hear the word Jehovah I think about the first time I heard it which was:


  • Bonsai
    I don't mind it when JW's aren't using it. It's just one modern form out of many forms of the tetragrammaton.
  • Diogenesister

    yep, Petezahut it's Jehovah-god together for me too, I literally cringe.

    One's is another, these one's. Cringey cringe cringing curr...cringey cringe...cring..ey (ok enough)
