What’s in a Name?

George Washington Carver once said, “Our creator is the same and never changes despite the names given Him by people here and in all parts of the world. Even if we gave Him no name at all, He would still be there, within us, waiting to give us good on this earth.”

I have never understood why people argue about who God is. It does not matter what religion you subscribe to or what name you pin on God. The creator and the universal greater power is the same god.

When Christians try to put God in a nice neat box and say this God, our God is the only God, they are limiting the very God they claim to be all powerful, all knowing, and omnipresent.

How can an omnipresent God go by one name? How can a spirit who speaks to each soul in a unique way for that soul go by one name?

We Christians say, “God has a plan for your life in His perfect will.” He loves us as individuals. It only stands to reason that each of us will have a personal connection to that power of God and call it what is right for us.

The power of creation, spirit and love that is in the universe, in nature, in us is the One True God. What you call this God is insignificant to the fact that you believe and love.

Even God said to Moses, “I am”. The fact God exists and that we find a connection through love and we share that love with our fellow living creatures, that is what is important.

I choose Christianity to serve God. It is arrogant of me to assume that my God will not reveal Himself to a person who chooses a different way to connect with their spirit. All connections to God are sacred. I will go as far to say that even religions that believe that creation it’s self is a spiritual connection to the true God. All other religions that worship one God is the same true God. The great Spirit, Allah, Yahweh, the Goddess, and other are a different connection to God.

I have not reconciled this truth with to the part of my faith that says 6 “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you know me, you will know  my Father also. From now on you do know him and have seen him.” (John 14: 6-7)  Also, I haven’t connected it to my recent discovery that the Quran mentions Jesus more often that Mohammad. It doesn’t stop there, I see in other religions that there are other stories of the Messiah. These facts and others appear to make the connections between one God and all religions a truth.  

I believe that we Christians are making a big mistake by undermining the scope of who God is. We are molding Him to our image of God, when we should be encouraging others to connect to God in whatever way the spirit is calling them as individuals.

I will continue to search for a closer relationship with God and I encourage you to do the same.

Search for God with love, faith, and hope. The power of God’s Love will find you right where you are.

 

 

 

One thought on “What’s in a Name?

  1. Probably the biggest step you will make to finding the truth is to test everything. Start with Jesus. Is he the one written about in the Hebrew writings? Take the red letters and match them up with what the Creator spoke at Mt. Sinai. If Jesus says only one thing different than what God said, that means he was not sent by the Creator. He said, his doctrine was not his but the one who sent him. Stands to reason then, if Jesus changes anything from the Torah, the writings or the prophets, he cant be the coming ruler. This may seem a little elementary, but that’s what I have done. After you try to match up Jesus with the Creator, then see what the messianic prophecies are. Look at the prophecies that don’t require the new testament to see them. See what the actual prophecies are then then see if Jesus completed any of them. I have done this. This is what we must do if we are going to say we love the Creator. We cant simply believe what everyone has told us our whole lives. We must prove what we believe. Of course, I understand now why they are selling faith. You don’t have to do anything if you just believe.
    Shalom
