American Standard Version:
In the foreword of that translation state: “the American Revisers, after a careful consideration, were brought to the unanimous conviction that a Jewish superstition, which regarded the Divine Name as too sacred to be uttered, ought no longer to dominate in the English or any other version of the Old Testament, as it fortunately does not in the numerous versions made by modern missionaries. This Memorial Name, explained in Ex. iii. 14, 15, and emphasized as such over and over in the original text of the Old Testament, designates God as the personal God, as the covenant God, the God of revelation, the Deliverer, the Friend of his people;—not merely the abstractly ‘Eternal One’ of many French translations, but the ever living Helper of those who are in trouble. This personal name [Jehovah], with its wealth of sacred associations, is now restored to the place in the sacred text to which it has an unquestionable claim.”
NASB foreword states:
"There is yet another name which is particularly assigned to God as His special or proper name, this the four letters YHWH [Ex3:14 & Isa 42:8] This name has not been pronounced by the Jews because of reverence for the great sacredness of the divine nae. Therefore, it has been consistently translated LORD"5 AnswersReligion & Spirituality3 months ago
In Ephesians 1:20-23 Paul talks about 'he' and 'him & his' In these verses who is 'He" And who is 'Him & His"?
(Ephesians 1:20-23) 20 which he exercised toward Christ when he raised him up from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, 21 far above every government and authority and power and lordship and every name that is named, not only in this system of things but also in that to come. 22 He also subjected all things under his feet and made him head over all things with regard to the congregation, 23 which is his body, the fullness of him who fills up all things in all.

(Matthew 21:43) “43 This is why I say to you, the Kingdom of God will be taken from you and be given to a nation producing its fruits. . .”
(1 Peter 2:7-10) “7 It is to you, therefore, that he is precious, because you are believers; but to those not believing, “the stone that the builders rejected, this has become the chief cornerstone” 8 and “a stone of stumbling and a rock of offense.” They are stumbling because they are disobedient to the word. To this very end they were appointed. 9 But you are “a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for special possession, that you should declare abroad the excellencies” of the One who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. 10 For you were once not a people, but now you are God’s people; once you had not been shown mercy, but now you have received mercy.”

To honor doesn't mean to worship.
Whereas to worship includes honoring.
John 5:23 doesn't say we are to worship Jesus.
It says we are to honor Jesus.
Yet trinitarians will argue to honor is to worship.18 AnswersReligion & Spirituality8 months ago

(Hebrews 4:15) “For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tested in all respects as we have, but without sin.”
Does God word, say, Jesus cannot sin or could not sin; or does it say, he did not sin or would not sin?
Think about it:
If one cannot fail a test, then it isn't a test.
And if it wasn't a text, then Jesus wasn't tested.12 AnswersReligion & Spirituality8 months ago
Whom do you follow? Plato said, 'God is so great he doesn't need a name' Jesus said, 'I have made your name known.'?
Titles such as Lord, Almighty, and even God, are not personal names.
At best they are common names.
Whereas God tells us:
(Exodus 3:15) “15 Then God said once more to Moses: “This is what you are to say to the Israelites, ‘Jehovah the God of your forefathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you.’ This is my name forever,. . .”17 AnswersReligion & Spirituality9 months ago

Paul, at Col 1:15, says that God's image, his Firstborn is 'of all creation' Yet such bibles as the NIV mistranslate it 'over all creation'.
Yet you do not hear people denouncing the NIV as being wrong.

Can man die?
How many men had to sin to bring sin into the world?
How many men had to die to buy back life for mankind
(Romans 5:12) “12 That is why, just as through one man sin entered into the world and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because they had all sinned—.”
(Romans 5:15) “. . .For if by one man’s trespass many died, how much more did the undeserved kindness of God and his free gift by the undeserved kindness of the one man, Jesus Christ, abound to many!”
(1 Corinthians 15:45) “. . .“The first man Adam became a living person.” The last Adam became a life-giving spirit.”
So is Jesus equal to God or Adam?5 AnswersReligion & Spirituality2 years ago
