Global warming is happening on Mars, but there are no humans there to take the blame.

//My issue is why do translators insist on changing and removing God's name when translating from Hebrew to English.//'

The real question is whether "Jehovah" was God's personal name to start with.

Since it isn't, there is really no difference between using it and using LORD (all in caps) in English.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

I'm willing to do this, David.

If a translation team were to ask me, I would say that for the sake of weaker brethren who would be offended at the omission of Jehovah from the OT, Use either it or YHVH for the Tetragrammaton.

How's that?

Glory to Jesus Christ!

//Afterall, Orthodoxy is simply Catholicism without a Pope.//

If you think that, you clearly know nothing about either church.

Following the precedent set by the KJV, the NKJV in the OT uses LORD all in capitals for YHVH.

You've been told this repeatedly.

Whether this is a good idea can be debated.

FWIW, the form "Jehovah" is from Latin. Curiously YHVH sounds like the other Latin name for the king of the deities, JOVE.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

In the original creation, God drew it from the primordial water.

After the flood, God drew Noah's family and preserved species through the water.

For the establishment of Israel, the Hebrews were drawn through the water twice: the Sea and the Jordan.

And in Baptism, we are drawn from the water.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

David, do you defend the racism and child abuse that exists in the JWs?

You might want to look up these subjects.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

On the other hand, changing God's personal name YHWH to adonai as trinitarians Cluny and StrongAxe advocate is a blatant abuse of scripture.//

Jews do it all the time when they read the Tanakh in their services. (Sometimes they might say Elohim or Ha Shem, depending on the context.)

Are they Trinitarians and abusing scripture?

Answer yes or no, and give scripture to back it up.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

// God could have simply opened up a crack in this ring and turned the flood waters into steam. //

And where did this steam go, David?

Did you think you were somehow special because you saw this?

If so, it's spiritual delusion.

Pray that God will deliver you from this satanic snare, as it is clearly leading you into spiritual pride: one of the forerunners of the sin against the Holy Spirit.

I'll bet you can't tell me where ANYTHING like this happened in the Bible.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

//The New King James version has removed God's name completely.//

WRONG AGAIN!

The NKJV renders the Hebrew YHVH as "LORD" all in caps, following the example of the 1611 one.

Doesn't it bother you to tell lies about others?

Or have you simply been misinformed?

FWIW, sometime in the last couple of decades, I saw a Jewish translation of the Hebrew Scriptures into English. Where the Divine Name appeared, it had it in Hebrew, allowing the reader to either say it or use whatever circumlocution desired.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

There are other explanations for the sea shells.

Do you know of any canyons or dunes created by a flood?

the Bible was NOT intended to be a science or history book as we understand those disciplines today.

It is rather a SPIRITUAL interpretation of history or science.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

RichardC, do your own sins mean you are not a Christian?

Then why should the sins of other people mean their faith is meaningless?

Napoleon was seeking to SECULARIZE Europe, not Catholicize it.

Mussolini and Hitler were not practicing any religion when they were in power.

// God cannot even look at a sinful man, but only sees one IN CHRIST, //

BCV, please.

//and we know Trump is not in Christ. //

Who's WE, Kemo Sabe?

Why should anyone believe that God reveals people's spiritual status to you?

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Thank you for your posting, David.

We all know that the JW's and similar groups NEVER spin (or outright falsify) history about the Roman Catholic Church.

Glory to Jesus Christ!


Teenage Boys Not Remembering
  
How old are your teenager sons?

Did they have trouble remembering this when they were younger?

//Careful cluny, you are beginning to slide left.//

How?

Maybe you're sliding too far right?

In any case, we are still not at war with Persia.

Mobs of angry Americans running through the street chanting "Death to Ruritania!" would not mean we were at war with this country.

//They have killed hundreds of Americans - much of it paid for by the Billions of dollars given them by Obama. //

Actually, it was Persia's money to start with. It had been impounded by our government in 1979.

Remember when Japan bombed Pearl Harbor in 1941? It still required an act of Congress to declare war on them.

Maybe my memory fails me, but can you tell me when Congress declared war on Persia, please?

I'm certainly not aware of their attacking USA territory.

I shall await with interest.

Christ is baptized! In the Jordan!
