If you're worshiping the one true God (the Father, Son and Holy Spirit) in your heart, and you were told His name was "trash", He would still receive your worship - what the ---- are we arguing over?

that makes no sense.

It sounds like Billy Graham or what Bush said...

that even though they are muslims, buddhists, etc...they are still worshipping God because they are 'seeking Him'

even the NT shows that nobody knows His name

12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
Jesus taught us to pray Heavenly Father or Father in Heaven.

But aren't we talking about translations and such? If someone was worshiping Yeho-shua, you would know that they're praising Him, right?

That's what I was talking about.

If you're saying we shouldn't worship Jehovah, then we disagree.

Please see Gen 22:14, Exodus 6:3, Exodus 17:15, Judges 6:24, Psalm 83:18, Isaiah 12:2, and Isaiah 26:4.

Peace, or Shalom.

first couple of verses are bad translations

read your 2nd verse

3 And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty, but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them.



you should read this verse

Exodus 3:15
And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, the LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.

I guess you're not getting my point

YHVH or JHVH are the letters....nobody knows that the vowels are e, o, or a.

You can include whatever vowels you like but nobody is certain.
To 'claim' it is the word jehovah is ignorance when facts have already shown that nobody knows.

If you're worshiping the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, you won't have a problem with any name He uses in the Bible to describe Himself. To stress, we should worship him in spirit and in truth. To argue about getting His name just right while quenching His very Spirit is counter productive, isn't it?
