Is the word ‘GOD’ actually a name?

Etymology and usage (encyclopedia)


Etymology is the history of words, their origins, and how their form and meaning have changed over time. By an extension, the term “the etymology of [a word]” means the origin of the particular word.


The word etymology is derived from the Greek word ἐτυμολογία, etymologia, itself from ἔτυμον, etymon, meaning “true sense” and the suffix -logia, denoting “the study of”


Now, let’s get the ETYMOLOGY OF THE WORD ‘GOD’…



Main article: God (word)

“The earliest written form of the Germanic word God (always, in this usage, capitalized[17]) comes from the 6th-century Christian Codex Argenteus. The English word itself is derived from the Proto-Germanic * ǥuđan. The reconstructed Proto-Indo-European form * ǵhu-tó-m was likely based on the root * ǵhau(ə)-, which meant either “to call” or “to invoke”.[18] The Germanic words for God were originally neuter—applying to both genders—but during the process of the Christianization of the Germanic peoples from their indigenous Germanic paganism, the words became a masculine syntactic form.[19]

In the English language, the capitalized form of God continues to represent a distinction between monotheistic “God” and “gods” in polytheism.[20][21] The English word God and its counterparts in other languages are normally used for any and all conceptions and, in spite of significant differences between religions, the term remains an English translation common to all. The same holds for Hebrew El, but in Judaism, God is also given a proper name, the tetragrammaton YHWH, in origin the name of an Edomite or Midianite deity, Yahweh. In many translations of the Bible, when the word LORD is in all capitals, it signifies that the word represents the tetragrammaton.[22] Allāh (Arabic: الله‎) is the Arabic term with no plural used by Muslims and Arabic speaking Christians and Jews meaning “The God” (with a capital G), while “ʾilāh” (Arabicإله‎) is the term used for a deity or a god in general.[23][24][25] God may also be given a proper name in monotheistic currents of Hinduism which emphasize the personal nature of God, with early references to his name as Krishna-Vasudeva in Bhagavata or later Vishnu and Hari.”


Now I ask, HOW CAN WE CALL OUR CREATOR THAT WORD ‘GOD’ when it means “to call” or “to invoke”? This means that it’s not even a name- just a word…meanwhile, since it means ‘TO INVOKE’, who are we ‘INVOKING’? Let’s see a prayer made by someone:

“OH ‘GOD’ (OH, I ‘INVOKE’), May we succeed in this business trip IN ‘JESUS’ (a Greek Sun god’s Name- YE-ZEUS : YAH-ZEUS) name- AMEN (an Egyptian Sun deity known as AMEN-RA)”


From the prayer above, you have actually said the one you ‘INVOKED’, and these are the PAGAN DEITIES: First, ZEUS, The Greek Sun deity (for whom we were deceived to worship on SUN-day instead of the prescribed SHA-BBATH) and The head of all gods and goddesses. Second, the Egyptian Sun deity ‘AMEN-RA’- to whom we seal the prayer with.

We must know actually WHAT WE ARE WORSHIPPING…It’s better you keep calling Him ‘the Most High’, than to follow the TRANSLATIONS OF OUR SLAVE MASTERS…Same used us as slaves, same killed over 50,000 million people (Hebrews), same killed the Saviour, same SEIZED and gave us the bible- HOW POSSIBLE? CAN ANY POSITIVE THING COME OUT FROM THEM?

Paganism has been reformed long ago- BE WISE…They love their deities and PROCLAIM their names, DO YOU LOVE YOUR OWN, DO YOU PROCLAIM HIS ‘NAME’?

“I have come in my Father’s Name, and you do not accept me; BUT IF SOMEONE ELSE COMES IN HIS OWN NAME, YOU WILL ACCEPT HIM” (John 5:43)

“Salvation is found in NO ONE ELSE, for THERE IS NO OTHER NAME under heaven given to men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12)

“…let us exalt His name together” (Psalms 34:3)

“Give thanks to the Most-High, call on His Name; Make Known among the nations what He has done.” (Psalms 105:1)

“Proclaim that HIS NAME is EXALTED forever.” (Isaiah 12:4)
