GOD'S NAME


God is not like a dog. Some dogs, as long as you show them affection or give them treats, they will come running and wag their tails and be just so excited. If we didn’t know there name we could call them "Fido" or "Ginger" or any name and they would respond. We could even call them "Dummy" and they would think that is fine as long as we pet them and keep giving those treats.


Some people treat God like these nice but dumb dogs. You can call him "Allah" or "Buddha" or "Sheva" or "Yin" or "Yang" or "Zeus." It really doesn’t matter as long as you are sincere and show him love and affection.


God is not a dog and he will not be treated like a dog. God has a name and He will only respond to a Biblical name.
