31246, No he doesn't have a name
Posted by Buddy_Gilapagos, Wed Aug-17-05 04:00 PM
Sounds like a simple question but it really isn't. All them other names that people dropped in this section, God, Jehovah, even Allah, Aren't names of different Gods but descriptions (in various languages and religions) of the Monotheistic GOD. Give me one good explanation as to why all the diferent Monotheistic religions are referring to the same GOD?
The reason God doesn't have a name because a name isn't necessary. We are not talking about a polytheistic religion where there are many gods to distiguish between which would warrant giving them names like Zeus, Apollo and the like.
Since they all believe in One God, Chrisitians, Jews & Muslims all describe God with descriptive titles rather name designations.

We call the star in the center of our solar system the Sun, which is also a generic term for a star like our Sun. Does our sun have a proper name? (i am sure technically there is.) Not really, and its because there is one sun in our solar system.

Reality check: according to the 2000 census, there were more than 31,000 black physicians and surgeons, 33,000 black lawyers. There are about 1,400 black athletes playing professional basketball, football and baseball combined.
