CHRISTIAN LIFE




 

IN DEFENSE OF CHRISTIANITY (HIS NAME IS GOD)

        You should never ask God's name.  God is His name.  Names are only needed when there is a multitude of beings and you must distinguish them.  But for God, who is alone, the name God is sufficient.  Other names tend to make Him earthly and make us think of Him as mortal.  But take away the addition of names and you will behold His glory. 

        Common people often raise their hands to someone in heaven.  They may refer to him as Sun or Jupiter, a manner of confessing the true God.  They essentially are all in agreement about His existence.  They are mistaken about the name. . .and His teachings.
