I Don't Like To Say Jesus

If I cannot believe or bring myself to say the names "Lord" "Christ" or "Jesus Christ," does that make me less of a Christian? I use "God" or "Creator." So does that mean I am condemed? Help me to understand because, it is a personal problem.

Jesus...I love Jesus! Jesus, I TRUST in YOU!
Say it loud and proud!
Luke 9:26
" For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of him when He comes in His glory, and the glory of the Father and of the holy angels.
2 Timothy 1:8
Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord or of me His prisoner, but join with me in suffering for the gospel according to the power of God,

Kathy, "If i cannot believe or bring myself to say..." Do you believe? Do you have a personal relationship with Jesus? When we have a personal relationship we call them by their name.

Not writing or saying the name of God was OT - which because Jesus/Joshua/Yeshua/Jehwya/Yahweh had not yet come in the flesh and fullfilled ALL of the Law and the prophets.

My question is of what are you afraid if you do utter the name of the Lord? Do not let fear make your decision for you.

Kathy do not be forced into believing what may not be true, search. eg there are 5 identities given the name Gxx a name we are not to allow to come out of our mouths. Ex23:13. These are The Father, Our Saviour, Satan, man and idols all called Gxx in scripture. The pagan Greeks translated scripture and gave our heavenly realm the names of their pagon idols as they did not know the true names. Of a truth the Jxxxx is also one of them names of V13. cont 2
---Toby on 6/8/07

Cont 2 Jxxxx a name with the first letter J which was not invented until way after he walked the earth. Greek Iesous can be traced back to the honouring of the pagan sun diety.
Our Father is Yahueh
Our Saviour Yahushua
Lxxd= Master Cxxxxt= Messiah therefore
L J C = Master Yahushua the Messiah.
Maybe the spirit was telling you something, keep listening.
---Toby on 6/8/07

I do not believe that it is necessarily a demon posessed person. Satan will come against any man or woman of God and talk to you. Like for example>>Here you go saying Jesus again. No, what we have to do, is stand firm. God tells me to keep praying. You also need alot of fortitude.
---catherine on 6/7/07

I understand why she may have a problem saying the name Jesus. Because Satan is also alive and well on planet earth. Are we all so good and so righteous that we sometimes don't have war fare with the enemy. I am not.
---catherine on 6/7/07

Honey the devil is trying to confuse you and keep you defeated. Learn to say and love the name of Jesus. Therein lies your peace,joy,victory and power in the most Holy and Mighty name of Jesus. Learn to say and use it! Jesus wants us to call out His very special and loving name. He pays attention when we do. Hallelujah! Put the devil in his
---Robyn on 6/7/07

I do understand. That name Jesus, Satan hates. If you are a true Christian, ofcourse, you are not condemned. You mentioned you cannot believe, I do not understand. Force yourself, even if saying the name Jesus doesn't feel right or seem right. It is only Satan and you will come out of that demonic mood, You must learn to hate the Devil with everything that is in you. And love God with everything that is in you. Also, remember, we are to honor the Son as much as the Father. Have a great Day.+
---catherine on 6/7/07

KATHY, beloved child of God. Please read every post contained herein that contains the name of Jesus & vocalize each word as you read, do not think about what you are reading, just read. If you are unable to do that, sincerely say this pray out loud, alone. "Father open my mind to your Spirit by your grace. Thank you Father in the name of Jesus" Praise Him for setting you free. You will never be hindered by this again. Believe that & be blessed.
---joseph on 6/7/07

"The Word is near you, even in your mouth, and in your heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; that 'if' you shall confess with your mouth the Lord 'Jesus', and shall believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved. There is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. He that believes in Him is not condemned: But he that believes not is condemned already because he has not believed in the name of the Son of God."
---joseph on 6/7/07

I have found that demon possessed people hate the name of Jesus, Are you demon possessed? If you loved Jesus you would love his name, Jesus Jesus, Jesus, No name above that name, all demons come out in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
---exzucuh on 5/13/07

If you don't like to say Jesus, come back to God when you can. In other words, your not a Christian if you can't say the name above all names. The name of Jesus! Also, if you are ashamed of Him, then He will be ashamed of you on the last day.
---John on 5/13/07

A lot of different religions believe in God and don't mind talking about Him at all or admitting that they worship Him. However, when you say "Jesus", that brings Him into the human experience in order to be the Savior of all mankind. Romans 10 makes it clear that Jesus Christ must be confessed as Lord to be saved and that confession comes from believing in the heart. I don't know why you have a problem with the name of Jesus, but His name is like honey on my lips.
---Linda on 5/13/07

Yes, because if you don't believe in Jesus or Christ that how can you call yourself a Christian? This does't mean that you are condemed it just mean that you have something to work of. God is just like saying Father. He has a name which is Jesus and there is some serious power in it. Jesus is the one who died for you and you can't say His name? That's a problem, fix it before it's too late.
---Andrea on 5/13/07

I know some deaf members at my church who have never heard nor said His name?

Interesting fact: In a Christian, arabic speaking church, God is called Allah.
---JohnE on 3/23/07

Kathy, If you are saved it will come in due time you are not the first to find it difficult originally. Just start to say it out loud in private and soon you will find the Name to be sweet coming from you lips.

The other John::That was so unique,I guess Jesus knew all languages but had to speak in the language The general popolation spoke to be understood & get his message accross.English would have been of no use by that token.The message came through inspite "I shall be with you all days till yhe end of Time"
---Emcee on 3/22/07

I love to say Jesus. I need His help through out each and everyday. And I will not get it, if I don't ask Him. And that means speaking His name.
---catherine on 3/21/07


Jesus had no servants, yet they called Him Master.
Had no degree, yet they called Him Teacher.
Had no medicines, yet they called Him Healer.
Had no army, yet kings feared Him.
He won no military battles, yet he conquered the world.
He committed no crime, yet they crucified Him.
He was buried in a tomb, yet He lives today

Feel honoured to serve such a Leader who loves us. And in the RCC, we do.

---Caring on 3/21/07

This is interesting.
When I think about it, His name wasn't literally "Jesus". Jesus is english from the greek name Jesu which was the name that is found in the greek manuscripts. Which means He most likely didn't go by that name.
I believe His name was Yeshua.
Just a little FYI.
No, Jesus didn't speak english....

kathy, let me tell you that jesus said you must go thru him to get to God.that if you don,t acknowledge him ,he won,t acknowledge you to his father.this is in the MUST call on the name of jesus,if you don,t then you aren,t a christian,or atleast your salvation is suspect.
---tom2 on 3/20/07

If you cannot say the name of Jesus, you are not His. I don't care what anyone tells you. This is spiritual.
---Joel on 3/17/07

Hi Kathy! You say you cannot "believe", yet you ask if this makes you "less of a Christian". How can one not believe in the Christ, yet claim Christianity? I'm confused and look forward to your clarification. Also, "Jesus" wasn't the name our Savior was called during His earthly life. Research and learn His actual, true Hebrew name and perhaps this will help you.
---AlwaysOn on 3/17/07

I think it is more of an spiritual problem than a personal problem. The only way to get to God is through Jesus. Jesus is our intercessor for our prayers. Just as Moses was for the people in the wilderness. It doesn't make you any less of a christian, just a confused christian. How do you rebuke demons if not say it in Jesus' name? Ron, if the name wasn't important than the demons wouldn't tremble when hearing his name. There are many names of God and all are meaningful, not meaningless.

If someone cannot say the name of Jesus, there is something spiritually wrong. Read the Bible please, before you display your innorance. It is easy to spot a non believer, even if they think that they are not one. We will know you by your fruits. Jesus is Lord to the glory of God the Father! Yes Jesus- JESUS!
---observer on 3/3/07

I have the most gentle, loving father but in 50 years of marriage, he has never called my mother by name. It is sad (tragic really) but, surprisingly, not an unheard of problem. I think it is some sort of phobia or something. If I were you, whenever I was alone, I would force myself to say the name, Jesus, over & over & over until you have the freedom to exclaim it at will. You don't have to allow this senseless thing control over you. Choose to exercise power over it. You're bigger than it is.
---DoryLory on 3/3/07

You had better love to say the name Jesus. He is the only Person who can help you when it comes to push and shove. One day there is going to be so many people that'S going be so sorry they didn't have Jesus, when all Hell comes against this world. You will be running to rocks begging them to fall on you trying to get away from Jesus. I wish someone would wise up and stop trying to make God out to be a liar.
---catherine on 3/3/07

You all say I am wrong... I am not Christian.. I said that was my opinion, what you said is your opinion. Keep religion and doctrine out of it. God is a spirit, and operatively different to all of us. Either way you argue it, I assure you I'll be in Heaven with my God. A name is just a name... MY OPINION....

I love Jesus and I love to say His name and I love the sound of His name when I say it. I's weird, but it has a nice sound like the word bread.
---John on 3/2/07

Christians are followers of Jesus Christ. You must be a Christian and nothing wrong with you. Otherwise, you cannot write the word JESUS. Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. We cannot go to the Father except through Jesus Christ our Lord and God. Thank God Almighty for His wonderful love and provision. Our loving Father promises (JC confirmed this) whatever we ask in the Name of JC will be given to us. There is authority in His Name. John 14:6

John I heard a story about C.S. Lewis. He awoke one night and saw a grissly 'thing' standing at the foot of his bed. He sat up slightly and said 'Oh its only you' and turned over and went back to sleep! The 'thing' left annoyed!

No, this is not a cultural thing. It's a spiritual thing. This I know, for the Bible tells me so.

Well as JESUS said: "If you will confess with your mouth" shall be saved. HE wants us to use HIS name. It is by the power of HIS holy name that "every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that JESUS CHRIST is LORD." And that means "your tongue" too. SO YES you should be speaking HIS name and getting on intimate terms with JESUS, the CHRIST of GOD.
---Katie on 3/2/07

Jesus said if you Confess with Your Mouth that Jesus is Lord and Believe in Your Heart He was raised from the dead You shall be saved . Jesus said all who Call on the Name of Jesus shall be saved .I think you need prayer and counselling .If I were you I find a pastor from a bible believing church and get help .
---linda on 3/2/07

Kathy, I will share this with you. I called God "God" when I first got saved. Once I got to know who God was, I began to call him Father. Do you know Jesus as your Lord of your life? If you can't call him by His rightful name, "Lord Jesus" then maybe you don't know Him? Do you want to know Jesus? We can help you "come to know Jesus" like the disciples did. Do you want to know Him?
---donna6598 on 3/2/07

Has anyone considered that this could be a cultrual thing? Someone who has been saved from a background of only knowing "Jesus" or "Jesus Christ" as a swear word may be reluctant to use the words freely even in their proper context.

Years ago, we had a deliverance ministry at our church, the Pastors wife told me, that if the person can not say the words ''JESUS IS LORD'' they have not been delivered completely.
---Cynthia_1 on 3/2/07

I wouldn't want to call you less of a Christian but I do think you have a problem that can be overcome.
Next time you have some time to yourself try this. Look in the mirror and tell yourself you are going to say "Jesus Christ is my Lord" Then say it a whole bunch of times and I think you will have a spiritual breakthrough. Those words are a declaration of faith which needs to be loosed.
---john on 3/2/07

NVBarbara, Back in 1982, A few days after I got saved, I woke in the middle of the night to a voice of an old man babbling, and I sensed this dark presence. I was really freaked out. I tried to say the name of Jesus. Nothing came out, I could not speak. I tried to say the name of Jesus again, nothing. The third time I got it out and boldly shouted the name of JESUS! The voice stopped and I felt a peace. I know it was the devil. This never happened again.

Perhaps if you explained more completely what you mean by "I cannot believe" we would better understand what the nature of the problem is.

Are you a Christian? Do you believe that Jesus is, as Peter once confessed, The Christ (the one sent to save us from our sins) the Son of the living God?
---BRUCE5656 on 3/2/07

Just guessing? have you been indoctrinated with out following the Whole bible instead of disjointed messages from the pulpit only, the bible clearly states that God is past our understanding, but that he gave his only Begotten Son(JESUS) that whosoever believeth on him should not perish, but have everlasting life. If you cannot accept Jesus, to cannot accept God. If you believe in man's theories of God you will definately be confused.
---Carla5754 on 3/2/07

I cannot believe that Jesus is the Almighty God since Jehovah the creator cannot lie, this is not a trinity blogg and I'm definately not starting one several exist already not to much avail! but Jesus is Gods son and we pray through Jesus or we can speak directly to the father, depends who you want to address. me personally I understand God Jehovah gave his son some not all AUTHORITY or Jesus would know who's names are written in the Lambs book of life. Right now it has not been revealed. Hope this helpsX
---Carla5754 on 3/2/07

There is power in the name of Jesus, we should use the name often! Kathy, why do YOU think you can't utter His name? Once years ago I awoke abruptly in the middle of the night. It was dark, but I could feel a heaviness, and then I saw what is best described as a 'shadow' dart across the room at the foot of my bed. I was nearly breathless with fear, I couldn't scream or speak.I kept trying to utter a sound, FINALLY I called out the name of Jesus. In seconds I felt at peace and felt His love around me.

Kathy, I know quite a few people who cannot even use the word God, yet they claim to believe He is there and taking care of them. They refer to Him as 'Him upstairs' or 'The big man in the sky' etc. This is not belief, it is superstition. They are saying "Just in case there is a God I had better acknowledge Him in some way. Do you think that you come in that category? Pray and ask God to reveal Himself fully to you.
---m.p.a. on 3/2/07

Yours is definitely not the first case I have heard of this. While out on the street witnessing I have run into this situation before. Just last summer a lady and her 16 year old daughter prayed with my friend for their salvation. The woman's 11-year-old daughter could not utter the words Lord Jesus. I have also ran into this over the telephone. May I suggest you seek deliverance of the spirit that is preventing you from saying the Lord Jesus.
---Mima on 3/2/07

Ron you are dead wrong! You surely are not a Christian. A Christian would and could not say that. You said.."What is important is who God is to you, not the name." WRONG! The world says this, and it's orchestrated by the devil. The Bible says,That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thy heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved."
---John on 3/1/07

In order to truly be saved you have to call out to Jesus to save you. I believe you are the Son of God I don't want to die and go to hell. Please save me. When I preach I intend to start praising Jesus right off the bat. Mabe sometimes God, for sending Him. It depends, what the words are that God gives me. I'll never know ahead of time. GENERALLY, it's Jesus, or God, [or my Creator.]That I might use.

God has many names and the interpretations of who he is vary widely. This is my "Opinion", God is a spirit call the spirit what you will. It doesnt make you any less a Christian calling God Creator or whatever. I differ on the name Jesus however, as he to me is the one who walked in our shoes. I worship God the spirit, God the father, God the creator, GOD! The names mean very little to me, the spirit of God, means everything to me. What is important is who God is to you, not the name.

I'm not quite sure i understand the reason you can't bring yourself to say the name of jesus. i hope i can help. there is no other name in which one can enter the kingdom of heaven. the very word christian-to be christlike- is from the christ, the savior, jesus. jesus was god's word made flesh, his son. he shed his blood to cover our sins. all he did on earth we can do in his name!have you ever asked him into your heart? god bless and i hope you'll be shouting JESUS soon.kimberlynn9854

Jesus is the name above all names. If you are a Christian your Spirit will love that name. The devil doesn't want that name said in his presence. He is afraid, because he knows that there is power in that name. Jesus is the only door to heaven. Please ask God why you are this way. I don't want to judge you. I will say this, Jesus said, For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and my words, of him shall the son of man be ashamed...Luke 9:26. This is very important.

The real issue is WHY can you not bring yourself to say "Lord," "Jesus", or "Christ," and instead use the generic "God" and "Creator."

You need to search your heart and see. There may be a deep-seated spiritual problem there.

And if you do NOT believe (as you are saying here) that Jesus Christ is Lord, you're not a Christian to start with.

---Ryan on 3/1/07

(i)You write that you do not believe; and what to know if this means that you are still condemned? The scriptures say that unless we repent of our sins and confess with our mouth that Christ is our Lord and savior, we are none of his. Meaning we are not part of Christ; which we Christians (the Church) are the body of Christ.
---Shawn.M.T on 3/1/07

(ii) If you are unable to do this, then YES, you are not a Christian and are still condemned; because we are saved by the grace of God through our faith in our Lord and savior Jesus Christ. So do nothing but be obedient to the word of God, repent of all sins and accept Christ as your Lord and savior. Never deny or hesitate to confess Christ before men; because Christ has stated that if we deny him before man, he will deny us before his Father in Heaven!
