(ThyBlackMan.com) Accuracy, hmmmm. A term that people tend to shun or forget about. And when it is brought up, those so accustomed to living under deception get mad or even reject the truth. Every Sunday Christians and Catholics (and yes I am a born-again child of God, a believer) call on the name of Jesus – the name they believe to be above every name. But there is just one big problem. The Messiah’s name is not Jesus and it never was.

The breakdown of the meaning of words is called etymology and each word has its own meaning in different languages. Therefore when you change a word from its original language, you very often change the original meaning of that word. For some words it may not be a big deal. But if you are going to call on the name above every name (Philippians 2:9), then you need to use the correct name and there is no getting around that.

The Messiah (for those who accept Him) was Hebrew – not Greek, not Latin and not English. His name was Yeshua – not Jesus and not whatever each language wants to call him. In the Bible it is clearly established by God that a different name produce a different meaning. You don’t have to speak Hebrew on everything but you should call on the correct name of the Messiah – a name filled with power and purpose, not inaccuracy, changes or translation. It is in fact God who changes the names, not man (Isaiah 56:5, Isaiah 62:2, Isaiah 65:15, Rev 3:12). And if God does not change the name of the Messiah, man should not dare to do so.

AS LONG AS THEY KEEP YOU DECEIVED, YOU CAN BE MANIPLUATED AND CONTROLLED

God changed Abram to Abraham, Sarai to Sarah and Saul to Paul. Likewise God gives the believer (child of God) a new name ( Rev 2:17). And as you see in Revelations 3:12, even the Messiah has a new name. But because that name has yet to be revealed, we call Him by His Hebrew name – Yeshua. Do not confuse this with how Jehovah’s witnesses want to say God’s name is exclusively Jehovah. God, the Father, is known by many names just as the Son is known as Yeshua and Emmanuel. But the Jehovah’s witnesses inaccuracies are a discussion for another time.

So why are Christians and Catholics calling the Messiah “Jesus”? Because they have been programmed to do so by a worldwide effort and mask of Eurocentric Caucasian deception. And it is complete with excuses for changing the Messiah’s name in order to protect the lie and control the masses. Click the link and learn more. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FLLQz78w6Bo

The name “Jesus” is a transliteration into English, not a translation. It came from the Latin form of the Greek name “Iesous”. But the Messiah was neither Greek nor Latin. And though the New Testament was translated from Greek, there is no letter “J” in Greek nor in Hebrew – unless they recently added one to cover their lies and inaccuracies.

What harm can it do to call the Messiah “Jesus”? Great harm. First of all it is inaccurate and thus wrong. Secondly it is adding to the Word of God or taking away from it – both cases that cause one to be cursed (Deuteronomy 4:2, Revelation 22:18-19). Thirdly what is wrong, cursed, deceptive and inaccurate cannot set you free. The Bible is clear that you must continue walking in the truth (John 8:30-36) and the truth must be in you in order to set you free. That truth it speaks of is not just knowing the truth but also having the Truth inside you (the Messiah via the Holy Spirit per John 14:6). Fourth of all, it is not rightly dividing the Word of truth as we are commanded to do if we use inaccuracies and make excuses for doing so (II Timothy 2:15).

THOSE WHO MAKE EXCUSES FOR INACCURACY HAVE ANOTHER MOTIVE OTHER THAN TRUTH

Maybe one of the biggest dangers of all is what the catholic church has done. Along with the name “Jesus”, His look has been altered and falsified to look more like a European Caucasian male. Statues, pictures like the fake one on the front of your grandmother’s old Bible have deceptively shaped and reshaped our perception of who the Messiah was and is. One could argue that was intentional because slaves were easier to control if the slave master resembled the “Messiah” and the slave did not. So you see the changes did not stop with the name.

There are at least three general or “major” church communities that exist today, all of which seem to call on the Messiah. The first is the real church that Yeshua founded and that He alone is the Head of. The second is the catholic church but not mentioned anywhere in the Bible and not at all Christian i nature (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GQhW9vAwCqM). Nor is the Pope. The third is what I call the “Christian” religion – denominational and non-denomination offshoots of the catholic church, many of whom were birthed through the protestant reformation (Lutheran, Presbyterian) and others following somewhat after John the Baptist (Baptist, Southern Baptist, National Baptist).

Along with changing His name, they changed His image to look like a Caucasian European (Romans 1:23). Then they used His teachings to subvert and control the masses through organized religion (Gal. 1:8-10), not relationship (Rom 8:16-17). Then they twisted His teachings to fit their own missions, agenda and objectives. He warned us of “another Christ” in II Cor. 11:4, “another gospel” in Gal. 1:8-10, false apostles in II Cor. 11:13 and adding to God’s word or taking away from it in Prov. 30:6, Rev. 22:18-19, Deut. 4:2 and Deut. 12:32. But they continue to do it anyway and many of you refuse to see.

The Lutheran and Presbyterian churches are commonly known as the Protestant church. The Methodist Church, however, was not produced by the Messiah. It was instead the product of a movement started in 18thh century England by John and Charles Wesley. As for accuracy, none of the churches in the second or third group were founded by the Messiah – Yesuha. Not surprisingly all of their origins can be traced back to men, not Yeshua. Just the facts – like them or not.

EITHER A CHURCH IS THE MESSIAH’S CHURCH OR IT IS PURELY MAN’S CHURCH AND NEITHER MAN-MADE CHURCHES NOR THEIR TWISTED DOCTRINES CAN SAVE YOU

So you see accuracy means everything when it comes to the Word of God. But too many “churches”, denominations and groups have a problem with the truth. They are the wheat that has grown up with the tares. They have a form of godliness but deny the power thereof. The Bible calls them “another gospel” (II Cor. 11:3-4, Galatians 1:8-9) but clearly not THE Gospel of the Messiah. And they are comfortable to go right on making changes and promoting inaccuracies and deceptions. They call the Messiah by a different name (the transliterated excuse). They change His appearance. They twist and distort His teaching. They go off on their own missions, behaving more like the Pharisees. And they set up their own churches, pretending to be His. All the while many of them simply promoting themselves, not the Messiah. all the while leading unsuspecting people further into darkness (Matthew 23:15, I John 1:6). This has to stop and the first stage of stopping it is to expose what is really going on – like it or not.

The false church is afraid the people coming to realize I John 2:27 which states:

As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit—just as it has taught you, remain in him. But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.
1 John 2:27 | NIV KJV

 

What do man-made churches fear? Because church leaders in control of the masses fear the awakening of God’s people to 1 John 2:27, they have what they believe as justification to change names, twist doctrine, mislead/deceive/misinform people and make excuses for all of the above. And the scripture that asks how can you hear without a preacher is a question, not a definitive statement. Wake up people. Wake up.

    I have talked with Christian PhD receivers, I have communicated with Muslim PhD receivers in which both their religion is interwoven with different versions of the Talmud some NOT cannon scriptures and some referring other Judaic Books.

    I have seen Christianity, Islam and Secularist beliefs in America. From the good to the horror

    I have seen the depths of destruction in Uganda and other countries in the motherland (africa). Christianity vs Islam vs Pagan Native faiths and even a mix of either of the 2 former and the last option.

    My conclusion is that these ALL beliefs are man-made

    No God would make it this difficult for the “right” path (whatever the hell that means).

    To parrot from other voices, God lets 1.3 Billion Muslims and a majority of Jews as well as Taoism, Hinduism, Buddhism and countless native faiths to prosper?

    But he will “come back” even though the O.T promised the savior would spread the word of God AT THE TIME.

    The chance of Jesus coming back is akin to the Mahdi coming back.

    Its not going to happen, just as I dismiss the latter I dismiss the former, it makes any sense.

  2. Yegar Saladin says:

    Sir, he literally believes in the “Gnostic” faith.

    It is clear he offers a solution, although he doesn’t expand too much on it.

    He speaks on the “pasts” violent of Christianity (i.e pillage of Africa) and how it spread in Europe. Obviously all people TODAY don’t believe in slavery. He questions why God would spread “Love” through hate.

    Ironically the brother is a Gnostic, which makes it even more deep

    Belief in SELF is the ultimate way from Gnostics to ex- 5 Per centers to closeted atheists to Buddhists. Many Successful people no doubt. Those “self” religions one could deem possible for us as a people.

    We are looking for a “clearer solution” and “to the point” chief not “better”.

    Islam definitely appears to be the “better” choice but arguing over philosophical and real life events as well as cultural is pointless in the area of faith.

    How many times has “the word of god” whether in biblical versions or churches have been “altered” to say nothing of translations.

    Think very carefully Trevo Craw

    Nothing is wrong with having an open mind

  3. Trevo Craw says:

    To Genosis Code,

    First you cannot stereotype all people. That is simply not true that all real Christians or any real ones believe in slavery. And for you to put down the belief systems of millions of people without offering anything better, you are a big part of the problem. How are you helping anybody? You are simply wanting recognition and people to hear you talk as you spread your empty ideology.

  4. GnosisCode says:

    I am at peace as a proud outsider

    I’ve never felt comfortable with a religion that for centuries its followers have advocated genocide, murder, killing and destruction.

    The only reason Christianity is #1 is because it massacred the smaller faiths.

    If the religion of God has to be spread by a human-bestial, conquering, grunting, tribal-identity fashion then that is not a “heavenly” being or source, it is actually of the most sub-demonic nature. You should study Gnosis and the “Demi-Urge”. You will know the God of Isreal is indeed a sick figure worthy of both disgust and pity.

    Christian people in particular will go as far as to say blacks “deserved” slavery because they abandoned God. A true, almighty righteous, heavenly god would put you through the horrors of slavery? Because your ancestors “made a mistake”?

    Thats the Demi-urge talking. He revels in punishments and destruction. He is a jealous, envious god (this by his own book). Why is worshiping another god worthy of execution?? “Another God”. There is only one, he would perhaps take pity as some variations in some other religions do for confusion, but execution and torture for something false? The jealousy comes from man not god. He is above that. Thats why he is God in the first place.

    This reasoning is behind White Supremacy and every crime, war, and violent action since Jesus came into being. (Ironically he was thought to end wars and destruction by the jews). Yet wars and destruction have increased almost as much as 250%.

    Christianity and Islam are nothing more then ancient “KillMonger” type clans that got its wish to conqueror and pillage most the world the mere second it gained power. The reason why nobody will check the Jews from pre-1947 to present day OBVIOUS war crimes is of the self-incriminating war-criminal document known as the “Old Testament”.

    Though true for all faiths, one only need to look at Muhameed, he was all meek and peaceful until he formed coalitions with converted pagans and money from Khadijah. Just like the spread of Christianity the true devil is revealed once power is accomplished.

    I will never worship the god of my Conquerors.

    Quote away what ever you need to fill your denial son. You’re only screaming in agony, just as your ancestors did by the faith of the same name and the Stockholm syndrome it created by its cause.

    SPEAKING OF THE DEMI-URGE

    WHY was it (Gnosis), suppressed so violently in the early days of Rome??

    Not just because some humans who thought god spoke to them primarily and through power…. over other humans who were thought god spoke to them secondarily through weakness.

    Its because they didn’t want you to UNDERSTAND the Devil’s ultimate trickery that he does say in the bible. The faiths you THINK you believe are actually the Devil himself.

    Jesus Christ is but a man no different then Buddha.

    Its a reason we have to wait hundreds of years for a retro “sequel” faith in that which the original people(jews) don’t believe in him for certain views in prophecy. He doesn’t accomplish these but is said to “return”. Nothing in the O.T determines a “return”. Islam then comes along and sets a parallel view similar to the original people (jews).

    The DemiUrge will use confusion and bells and whistles of prophecies each digested differently from one another to tend to one’s animalistic views of certain tribes to convince a broad brunch. But when one looks at the entire ledger itself one only is entirely confused.

    Again to be clear so you understand me loud and clear.

    I will never worship the god of my Conquerors.

    Quote away what ever you need to fill your denial son. You’re only screaming in agony, just as your ancestors did by the faith of the same name and the Stockholm syndrome it created by its cause.

    I pray you wake up to the light.

  5. Jerimiah E says:

    This article is on point. But some of those commenting would rather just flex what they think is knowledge and hear themselves talk instead of accepting the truth, the facts and the evidence. You are not helping anybody by making the waters muddy. If you wanted to help others, where are your articles and writings and seminars?

    People who comment but cannot refute anything are not helping anyone. I suggest you guys open your heart to the truth written here instead of using pride and ego to attack it.

  6. Trevo Craw says:

    To Sequitur,
    Nothing you have said nor anyone else who has commented has changed the truth of this article. You can add a bunch of additional elements you believe to be facts but they do not change the truth here.

    I am aware of alot of what you ave said and I am not a novice. But You, like others who commented, are all over the board. And such does not help anyone grasp anything but confusion with a ton of data.

    To Nation of Islam,
    Wow where do I start? First the godhead has three persons. You should look up Elohim because it it plural. Let US make man in OUR image. Secondly, you think you are following God but Allah is really Al-Ilah and not God of the Bible. Thirdly You are largely following Elijah Poole, not Allah. And the Nation of Islam does not even follow pure Islam – but rather a socio-political watered down version taught by Elijah Poole. An inaccurately, even in practice.

    As for Islam itself, remember Muhammad did NOT write the Quran because he was illiterate. He could not read nor write. Secondly, 70% of the Quran is simply the Bible restated. Go back to THE BOOK. You are simply going by what your teachers are telling you, just like Malcolm X was until he discovered the truth and the deceptions of the Nation of Islam.

  7. Sequitur says:

    Real interesting article. Kudos to Jim Brown comment on trivial pronunciation of names. Also the Nation of Islam had something interesting to say as well as the Council of Diversity. The Moors and many many researchers revealed much more escoteric knowledge which the masses haven’t heard or seen. I’m just beginning to learn and understand just by reading and listening to the elders. The Ancient Hebrews were Phoenician Canaanites nothing to do with jewelry or Jews.
    Abraham from my understanding from the Council of Diversity derived the Arab name Ibrahim.
    A well known and famous civil rights icon who passed away last year always referred to the creator of the universe with emphasis to the Stars and the Planets. What did he mean and how does it effect us as spiritual bodies? There has to be more to it than just the literal translation of the Holy Bible, the Koran and Torah. Thus this information still remains hidden but for reasons unknown. In the last supper apostles asked Jesus where do we go after you leave Jesus says go the house with the man carrying a pitcher. Who wants to continue that story and the Christ within all of us…the Christian denominations and non denominations will hopefully one day be liberated and free.

  8. Nation of Islam says:

    There is only one God but Allah and Muhameed is his Messenger.

    Jesus is dearly beloved but is only a prophet NOT in any relation related to (God) himself.

    JoshuaReal, please I don’t want you to hold back to our dear misguided worshipper God’sCause. Please counter her ignorant points about “Jesus” not being the messiah, and I will further use those points to prove to you (in great detail might I add) as well as her that Jesus is indeed a prophet of God not a part of him. Not his “son”.

    Remember O Thy Believers! Heed this Revelation!

    [Koran. Al-Maaida: Verse 73]

    “They have certainly disbelieved who say, “Allah is the third of three.” And there is no god except one God. And if they do not desist from what they are saying, there will surely afflict the disbelievers among them a painful punishment.”

    He told us.

    Yes, Son of God is indeed a mis-led term, as the paganism of the Church has led us to worship Jesus Christ and his portrait. (Astaugfitla)

    The Koran was revealed by GOD HIMSELF to our beloved prophet(via angel) in canonical logical fashion. From where did the “Son of God Doctrine” happen? Hundreds of years after the life of the MAN? Amid the whirlwinds and human meddling of priests and roman empire fashions?

    I agree with your condemning of the disbelievers. But Islam is immune to liberalism because IT IS GODS TRUE WORD ALONE.

    Jesus is not an idol or part of one, that is what Abraham was sent to destroy, to rip the fabric of in its entirety. Yet you re-birth this demon that we see in pagan rituals from the present into eons past 5,000 years ago that Abraham was sent to DESTROY that God and his “family” and his “relations” and his “son”.

    Your marriage crumbles
    Your faith weakens
    Your faith splits in countless sects.
    Your daughters are whores.

    The Son of God is not Angelic it is DEMONIC and will show on the day of judgement.

    I feel sorry for you.

    Ramadan Mubarak

  9. JoshuaReal says:

    To God’s Cause
    I could destroy all of your points of nonsense but why bother? You are choosing to be lost and stay lost. You are in denial and the conviction of the Holy Spirit is tugging away at your heart. That is the root of your anger.

    The article is correct for those who can see and hear the truth. For those who can’t, like you, we might as well speak to you in parables because you won’t get it anyway.

  10. Trevo Craw says:

    To Deputy Shaggy,

    Your summary on Moses is inaccurate and there is a ton of proof of the truth of God, scripture etc. It is sad that you have not had the experience you need to see and overstand that. But it is coming, believe that.

    To God’s Cause,

    As a gentile I can use my Father’s name and know Him by adoption. Read your Bible, not just the Old Testament. Your overstanding is lacking because your belief system denies the power and revelations of the Holy Spirit. I do not expect you to grasp this. You won’t.

    I suggest you speak to a Messiahnic Jew. But maybe you are one of those who is spoke in scripture who says they are a Jew but really are not. I also suggest you go back and study who was made to work as slaves in the salt mines. You are angry and the root of it is confusion and rejection of the truth that tugs away at your heart. i do not make you sick, the whole truth does. Get out of thee land off denial.

  11. DEPUTY SHAGGY BONE JR says:

    Religion has made the African American very weak and not susceptible to logical thought. With all our religion we are last in education and marriage. We need another solution and it isn’t religion or jesus.

    Here and around countless blogs, forums and real life we are arguing over this shit.

    Which imaginary, unseen God is correct and what is the best way in the best sub-cult to worship him in.

    Mind you this is all based on a negro on a mountain hearing voices talking about himself in 3rd person.

    Later fulfilled by N.T writers suddenly “inspired” after 300 years to write about a man who so happened to be raised from the dead and born from a God impregnating a 14 year old girl.

    Jesus is supposed to come back after 2,000 years to defeat “the devil”, convince the Jews that he exists, and prove to the Muslims he is indeed “part God”.

    Do you ever without judgement or partisanship listen to this and wonder if it makes any sense?

  12. GoD'sCause says:

    As a religious Ethiopian Jew I’m wondering why you are even using Yeshua’s name in entirety at all . Quite frankly for you lot of Americans its laughable! You are still brainwashed into thinking he is “The Son of God”, yet utilizing a Pro-Jewish accord. Even just Jesus existing as the Messiah doesn’t even make any sense.

    Jesus never made any of these possible.

    0) DID JESUS NOT SAY THE END WILL COME IN HIS DISCIPLES LIFETIME NO?

    1) The Third Temple hasn’t been built (Ezekiel 37:26-28)

    2) All Jews haven’t been gathered to the Land of Isreal in time (Isiah 43:5-6)

    3) The era of world piece that ended all hatred hasn’t occurred (Isaiah 2:4)

    4) Spread universal knowledge of the God of Isreal (all over the world)

    5) The Torah CANT be changed. “Anybody coming to change the Torah is a false prophet. (Deut. 13:1-4)

    6) The Messiah must be descended on his fathers side. (Ezekiel, Jeremiah). Jewish authorities spoke of him having “normal” abilities and born to human parents.

    7) Isaiah 7:14 describes “alma” has virgin birth. It was mistranslated and meant YOUNG WOMAN.

    8) In accordance with my point (5). We have Deut. 13:4, that states that God will grant the power of miracles to charlatans in order to test Jewish loyalty.

    Behold the almighty power of G_D will avenge and slaughter ALL you Goyum Heathens and apologists.

    Confused with an idol (Christ) when the bible began with the WORD and you even have the filthy mine to worship his blood?! Are we regressing to days of idol worship and obsessions with blood?

    You make me SI CK!

  13. Yusef J says:

    I agree with MMarque-Anthony.
    And Vinny, Jehovah’s witnesses are very deceived.
    Are you?

  14. MMarque-Anthony says:

    To those who would try and destroy the truth of this article, what are you offering other than to hear yourself talk? Where is the truth in you? Whose lives are you impacting? Whose eyes are you opening? Who is the truth you say you know setting free? NOBODY

  15. Trevo Craw says:

    To Council on Diversity, what you say is not complete. The Bible has its roots in Hebrew origins and you can not blanketly say every single thing has been changed or manipulated, though alot of it has. You seem to be following what someone told you. And showing that you know the various belief systems sounds more like you are trying to impress people with your knowledge instead of looking after their well-being.

    To Sean, Good is not exclusively Jehovah, or rather not that name at all because there is neither a J in Hebrew nor in Greek. He says tell them I Am That I Am Sent You. Emmanuel means God with us. YHWH is closer to His primary name. But relationship allows believers to call Him father per Romans 8 and Gal 4:7. Titles do not secure your place in the afterlife. Only relationship does. There is alot you do not overstand, you just think you do. And you have not supplied evidence to refute the facts of the article. Nice try.

    Merv thank you for the points of accuracy. It amazes me how many people fight against accuracy because they have heard lies for so long.

    To Bob, wow have you been brainwashed. I don’t care what people do today, their behavior does not change the facts nor the truth. You seem to have a problem with accuracy which means you have a problem with facts and truth. Yet you have not offered one shred of evidence to disprove anything in this article. You just want to think whatever you want, regardless of the facts and the truth. There is nothing else to say to you but wake up.

    To D. Zimmerman, Jesus is a transliteration, not even a translation. Either way, it’s not the accurate name of the Messiah. And the point of the article is bigger than the name issue. Read the article again and notice what else they changed along with changing the name. That was part of a bigger agenda to deceive and control others.

    To Jeffrey, the truth is my credibility. And if you think a typographical error is going to cause me to lose that, you are really ignorant. You, like others, cannot refute the truth of this article so you attack the messenger and say something foolish that carries no weight. Grow up.

    Darin you are correct but I was not going to go that deep in this article. You see how many people making comments are in fact having a hard time with the small portion of truth I gave them. I don’t want those people to choke. However, that being said, the only Old Testament book in Aramaic is Lamentations. The rest were translated from Hebrew, just as the New Testament was translated from Greek. Finally, the truths of the article still make several strong points.

    Craig what are you talking about? Not true at all. Those who constructed the Bible or translated it are different from those who canonized it. But I am more concerned about the truth of God’s Word which He himself has preserved all this time. There were Pharisees, Saducees and the Sanhedrin council. Then the list goes on. Yet thee truth of God’s Word is preserved and confirmed via the Holy Spirit, no matter how man has tried to twist and distort it. Know that.

    To Patrick, thank you for not fearing the truth.

  16. Council of Diversity says:

    D Zimmerman has given us the truth, “The Bible” is really just European Roman and Greek stealing of our culture (as well as others) no different then Artistry, “The Renaissance”, Classical Music and Mathematics.

    More and more African Americans are starting to feel the pangs of something different, some containing the same values as the bible, others much different. Here are the 5 growing religions pertaining to African Americans.

    *The Nation/Global Islam- In keepings with Pure Judeo ideology feel that viewing Jesus even as PART of god, and anything that deals with making him more then a MAN is not in keepings with the O.T. They site that many people held the title “Son of God” in ancient times anyway. Feels Christianity is in itself a Blasphemy to the highest decree.

    *Hotep’ism- A decentralized religion in which all things Pro-Black are honored primarily glossing over individual past african faiths, statues etc. Hates anything to do with liberals and bashes Christianity for “weakness” pertaining to our liberal youth. Feels that the Abrahamic Religions “abandoned” africa in the past and will continue to do so in the future as they are false White/Arabic Constructs brought by rapists.

    *Buddhism- God is viewed as passive, neither rejecting nor accepting. God’s very definition varies between a human-like central aware being and an invisible balanced “force energy”. It’s a decentralized religion that focuses mostly on inner-being and inner divinity. Values are sourced from the inside. Imagine your suffering as others suffering and don’t abuse them. Do not adhere to addiction or gluttony. Marriage is important, LGBT varies depending on an authors interpretation of the religion/god. ( In countries, China and Japan accept it, Thailand/Vietnam doesn’t)

    *Atheism- Outright rejection of any higher power. Still, Liberal Atheists view God and religion as helping in some areas and critical to people’s health and sanity. BUT only to the extent as a fictional comic book genre, or T.V show/Movie. It’s a matrix built on the positive-natural aspects of cognitive dissonance and not inherently “real”. Diversity and kindness are welcomed. They proudly note association with education in relation to Western Europe/Asia and lack of association in the prison system.

    *”Godists”- People who believe in God but reject all forms of religion as man-made. Occasionally view God as a “force energy” like some Buddhists but only very rarely. There is only a PERSONAL relationship with God. They reject ANY “chosen ones”, “messiahs” nor “prophets”. They site how confusing it would be that they all conflict each other. They also believe values to be self-taught, and if it doesn’t scream “WRONG” or hurt someone its probably is not bad. (Betraying someone’s trust in a marriage is BAD, LGBT is good)

    *Wiccan- Wishes to awaken the spirits of the ancient. Sub-beliefs vary so much it makes the 3 Abrahamic religions and their offshoots look like a “overly simplistic doctrine”. Over half of the faiths create their own idol to worship, others have strict practices on worshiping already establish idols. They range from traditional voodo with traditional values to a good few that are blatant outfits that specifically enable hedonism (when done constructively).

    *Nullists- These guys view every single faith listed with a null value . Their views on God and ANY religion are akin to asking a blind man what color does he see?

  17. Sean says:

    In your introduction you make a glaring oversight. You say God has many names. That is incorrect.

    At Exodus 6:2,3 God himself he states his name to Moses at Horeb as “Jehovah” (in English translations-YHWH in Hebrew)) and calls himself “Almighty God”)and nothing else. Those are a personal NAME and a TITLE. This is supported by the psalmist at Psalms 83:18. There, God’s personal name is restated as Jehovah, where he is described as “the Most High over all the earth”.

    Jesus used his personal name, which made him unpopular with the Pharisees.“I have made your name known to them and will make it known” (John 17:26) Note, that he did not say NAMES but only NAME. It appears in the Tanach and Greek scriptures more than more than 6,800 times; in fact more than all TITLES combined. All the Bible writers agreed there is one true God and his name is Jehovah, meaning “I will become what I prove to become”. In other words he can become whatever is necessary to achieve his purposes. That is why his personal name is so important. His personal NAME reassures us that he will fulfill ALL of his promises and purpose. I hope this clarifies. Shalom!

    I live at different times in Israel and I use the name Yeshua not Jesus both in Israel and New Zealand
    It is His correct name but I do not try to force others to use Yeshua.
    Most of the names we have in the OT are also incorrect
    There was never a Phrophet called Isaiah, his name was
    Yeshayahu. There was never a Prophet called Jeremiah
    His name was Yirmeyahu. I could go on but you get the point.
    May Elohim bless you.

    Your whole argument is a testament to perceptive bias. In simple terms your personal belief colors your attempt to justify your point. And that is your correctness in spite of any information to the contrary. FYI No one today knows the pronunciation of the name of the Son of God as in Hebrew. But we do have the Bible. From that we can find the knowledge of God and gain the mind of Jesus. See Proverbs 2 & 1 Cor 2:16.

  20. Michael says:

    I’m no scholar but my understanding was God didn’t change Saul’s name to Paul, rather Paul is merely the Greek version of the Hebrew name Saul. So when he went into Greek territory he was known as Paul, as an Italian named Antonio might become known as Anthony if he moved to England. I.e. it’s okay to call Jesus Jesus.

  21. D Zimmerman says:

    Just a quick question. I’m not a geeek scholar but had some in school, I don’t think Jesus in Greek is translated as Joshua or Yishua even though that is the Hebrew equivalent. Right now the only gospel of Jesus comes from the Greek gospels. If the Greek is corrupt shouldn’t we thow the whole thing out? So we kind of can’t trust any of it. Again if you join the theory that the gospels were in Hebrew and then corrupted by geek then we still can’t trust anything except for the unicorns driving spacshipsnthat delivers that conspiracy theory. They become our cannon.
    Finally you left out Aramaic in which was probably the language Jesus actually spoke. He new Hebrew but spoke different in common tongue.

    Do some research of actual history

  22. Jim Brown says:

    Then there are those who distract others from the Gospel with trivial things like the pronunciation of a name.

  23. VinnyT says:

    Jehovah’s Witnesses (JWs) predicted the end of the world, IN WRITING, numerous times. Not once did they come true. They truly are known for their ‘False Predictions’ the world over.

    JWs are taught that they alone are TRUE Christians and that all other people not JW will soon be destroyed. This is no exaggeration.

    JWs will allow their own children TO DIE rather than accept a life saving blood transfusion even in severe medical emergencies. It has already happened THOUSANDS of times!

    Just like this mother died unnecessarily! http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/england/shropshire/7078455.stm

    Two recently in Canada! http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-42002996

    Or this teenager that also DIED: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/england/west_midlands/8690785.stm

    This pregnant JW and her baby died.

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3027599/Jehovah-s-Witness-baby-die-refuses-blood-transfusion-seven-months-pregnant-cancer-80-chance-surviving-treatment.html

    JW’s NEEDLESSLY die for this sorry blood policy today.

    From the same organization that has an entire 100 + year history of similar bad and embarrasing policies.

    As a 15 year active JW (and an elder) here is my own story: http://exjehovahswitnessforum.yuku.com/topic/922#.USEl4aWhDHh

    JWs used to forbid Vaccinations and Organ Transplants (calling a life saving transplant “Cannibalism”) for a combined 33 years.

    This JW elder refused a kidney transplant and DIED only to have JWs say transplants are now OK 2 years later. http://ajwrb.org/debbie-shards-story

    JWs enforce extreme shunning for any JW that decides to leave their religion or who commits a sin without showing enough repentance in front of the elders.

    I have literally seen parents cut off all ties with their children solely because the kid did not want to remain a JW but went in another direction.

    Even the ex-JWs who leave the religion on their own, who are 100 percent truthful, sincere, love God, pay taxes, help others and more are still SHUNNED by all current JWs and marked as godless, proud, sinning apostates. The Awake magazine recently called them “mentally diseased”.

    And MANY contemplate suicide because the penalties of losing everything are simply TOO MUCH TO TAKE.

    But an honest question is: Why do so many JWs leave after being one time followers?

    As I eventually found out, the JW religion did say, IN WRITING, that the end would come in 1914 and then again in 1925. Was Jehovah directing all that? 1914 and 1925 came and went! They were proven false predictions. Period.

    They also said the end very likely would happen in 1975 and even commended (in the watchtower) witnesses for selling their houses and pioneering because of it.

    But 1975 came and went!

    They also said (for many decades) that the end would come before the generation born in 1914 passed away. In fact up until 1995 it was written inside each Awake magazine cover. Only they then had to change that meaning as well (including the Awake masthead) because that generation CAME AND WENT TOO.

    I was an active JW (and elder) for 15 years before leaving because of the blood and fractions policy 10 yrs ago. Today I’m shunned by all JWs simply because I left the religion.

    Most JWs simply accept everything the Watchtower teaches and says as “food from God”. Just like I did.

    Most believe God has chosen the Watchtower Society as his “channel”, which provides food from God Himself to their religion and ONLY their religion.

    But an honest look at the facts of the JW religion shows God has not chosen the WT for anything!

    Take a LOOK: http://www.freeminds.org/history/part2.htm

    ALL FROM THEIR OWN LITERATURE WITH DATES & PAGES TO SEE FOR YOURSELVES!!!

    Pages and pages of mistakes, embarrassments, false predictions, medical disasters, weird science, doctrinal failures and more for over 100 years now!

    Obviously ‘GOD’ would not get things wrong like this. Obviously ‘GOD’ did not provide bad food like that for their entire history.

    But most JWs have no idea about these things. They’re told to stay away from anything critical of their religion.

    For example: Was God’s spirit with JWs when they said Organ Transplants were a “conscience matter” in 1961?

    OR,

    Was God”s spirit with WT when they THEN SAID Organ Transplants are same as “Cannibalism” in 1967 and forbid them?

    OR, was God’s spirit with the WT when they THEN SAID Organ Transplants are NOT the same as cannibalism in 1980 and now allow them?

    Was God behind all those changes each time? Did ((GOD)) get all those things wrong each time? How many JWs like that elder above DIED by refusing kidney transplants, only later on to be told they’re OK to have now?

    Which is why some end up taking their lives due to losing their family or feel compelled to speak out about it, like me right here and now.

    And now because I walked away JWs are demanded to shun you for life (including your very own family).

    Examine this religion and ask as many questions as you can!

  24. Jeffrey Needle says:

    You’d have more credibility if you knew the last book of the Bible is “Revelation” — not “Revelations.” It just proves you don’t pay attention to details.

  25. Darin Baumann says:

    Just to say, Yeshua is Aramaic, which is probably what He spoke. Aramaic is 70% identical to Hebrew. His name in Hebrew would be translated as Yehoshua, which translates into English as Joshua. Just to say…..

  26. Craig says:

    Though you were going to deal with interesting point but then the reality hit. The same body of people created the Bible that you quoted from as you are trying to discredit.

    Wow! Good information. Always good to be on the path of truth. Keep up the good work Trevo.
