What Is The True Name Of God Almighty? by Nobody: 8:42am On Sep 03, 2016
The name of God Almighty seems to vary from one denomination or the other. Some call Him “ God” and “Lord” and this has been argued that they are mere titles but not the actual name of God.

I have also heard people call Him “El Shaddai” and some “ Jehovah “ while others call him “Yahweh” which some Christian scholars believe is the real name of God.

From your studies of the scripture, which of these names or any other do you think is the actual name of Almighty God?

I personally believe God has no known name to we mortals. The names of God described in the Bible are descriptive of his character. E.g Jehovah Jireh.
Yahweh simply means " I am who I am"

Yeah true. "I Am Who I AM" is the name God himself said He should be addressed.

When Moses was directed by God to go to the Egyptian Pharaoh and demand the release of the Israelites, Moses asked God, “Behold, I am going to the sons of Israel, and I will say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you.’ Now they may say to me, ‘What is His name?’ What shall I say to them?” (Exodus 3:13).The answer God gave Moses was simple, yet very revealing: “God said to Moses, ‘I AM WHO I AM’; and He said, ‘Thus you shall say to the sons of Israel, “I AM has sent me to you”

So from what you said, the right name God should be addressed is Yahweh.

Well, I still believe God has no known name to us. Which language would we use to name him?. English? Arabic?? Hebrew?? God has been existing before creation, and thus, outdated ANY language.

The closest we can get is this
Genesis 4:26 And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the LORD.

This happened when the whole earth was still of one one tongue ( the scattering of tongues happened later on). This is closest we can get. However, whatever Language men spoke in those days doesn't exist today anymore. So what men called God then is unknown to us today.

Even the rendering JEHOVAH is inaccurate which means your organization name is also wrong. YAHWEH is more accurate than Jehovah.

So spear us that!

no I don't think so. We should just stick to one name for God instead of using different names because God is not human that has two to three names or even more smiley

Imaging, quoting different thread to justify your lie is alarming.

When I said I used God's Name Jehovah and I said the great Yahweh in Hebrew, am I proving something different or similar between the Names?

Why can't you quote what lead to those statements?

I repeat, the rendering of Jehovah is inaccurate which makes your organization name to be wrong.

Olodo, this is what I wrote on that thread and that was 2013
"So I used all the names of God; be Jehovah, I Am, Jealous(in provocative prayer) but conscience of biaslism won't allow some people to use other name."

Like I said, the rendering of Jehovah is wrong even your organization know.

Languages vary according to culture, you can't expect me an ignore man to use a yoruba word for God.. Or vice versa... Igbo call him Chukwu, yoruba call him Eledumare, the isoke call him oghene, Bini call him osanobua...

The jews call him Yaweh, the babylonian call him marduk, the Romans call him Jupiter, the Indians call him vishnu... Etc.
Same creator of heaven and earth.. Different nomenclature.
