Christians - A thought to ponder.

Praise be to God...
Let him praise God in sick or in good health,
Let him speak of God's word.....
God the almighty.
God bless you...
God is good.
Lord, thank you for all the blessings...
Do you love Him?
Pray to the Lord and He will listen.
God will help you manage through those trying times.
If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.
The Lord is our Father.

Have you ever stop and wonder despite all these and many other more phrases about God and the Lord, something rather important and of high significance is gravely in miss?

Most Christians or churches just stress it all on "OUR LORD", "OUR FATHER IN HEAVEN", "PRAISE BE TO GOD", etc. If you ever stop and wonder, all these... are these GOD's name? Or does He has one?

Have you ever thought even further that because of this sad fact, perhaps who you are worshiping and put faith in is perhaps actually not THE ONE that all this while you thought is? Wouldn't this put you in a state where you might actually be worshiping Satan masquerading as what you initially or now think of as THE ONE with the current booming of various funny and weird church names being set up by almost anyone?

No offence or any intention of letting any of you astray, but one can only wonder all of this after observing various church goers' attitude and behavior in life, outside of church. Psalms. 83:18 states in one version of the Bible saying, " That people may know that you, whose name is......."
And yet in another scripture of Exodus. 9:16 of the same Bible version reading, "....and in order to have my name declared in all the earth." Isaiah. 42:8 clearly clarifies in this Bible version that, " I am ........ That is my name; and to no one else shall I give my own glory, neither my praise to graven images."

Stop and think. What do you call your parents? Relatives? Yes.....

Mom. Dad, Uncle, Aunty...etc....
But is that their name? Is it now? One with no knowledge of your family can refer the TITLE, "aunty" or "uncle" to almost anyone, even a stranger! Yes!!! Does that mean that the TITLES "GOD", "LORD", "FATHER" has difference in meaning than "uncle" and "aunty" only by higher and lower cases of the alphabet?

So now, the big question of the day is that why mostly, and almost all churches nowadays only stress much on "DEAR FATHER IN HEAVEN", or "DEAR LORD" and others of such phrases and none of God's name? Shouldn't the churches be following what the Bible or God is actually commanding that is to glorify HIS NAME and NOT His TITLE?

Now that we know that they fail to uphold HIS commandments, do you still have unwavering faith for the GOD you believe so much in or are you actually putting your faith in the church instead of your true objective, GOD?

This certainly is one BIG question to ponder upon. This is not misleading information for all are backed and reasoned from the Bible itself.



Why did God's name not being mentioned here at all but substituted with " ....... " ?
