I guess I dont understand, "why do we need a name to understand Him?", If I had some big fancy name, would you then understand...maybe!

As i think about Gen 2, the most High gave man everything that he needed...the earth,food,animals,woman,even "naming" them. But he also gave the choice, the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

whats good, whats evil tho?

His will, what Christ did!

what separate Him, His doctrine!!!

I think the confusion is when people use names or create images. we dont need a image or pictures or names...His teachings, the 10 fundamentals...faith will set you apart.

>What name is that?

we need to name the things we worship in order for it to be an reality to us. An infinite being, who created everything!!!!, how do you name it?
