This is a very important question to which we must think and decide how to answer.
When you are going to have a kid, you spend time looking for a proper name for your child. Some people take months and even years to find the proper name for their child. Others know beforehand the name they will use for their child.
It could be a combination of the mother and father’s name, a grandfather’s name, the name of a celebrity or someone important in your life, what matters at the end is that you will select a proper name for your child because it does matter.
If you name is Mark and you hear someone yelling behind you “Peter, Peter, Peter” . Would you turn around and look back just in case they are confusing your name? Of course not, you would not even bother to look back, because you do not recognize the name, therefore, you automatically assume that they are not calling you.
Even if someone tells you they are calling you, you would say, you must be confused, that is not my name, they must have been calling someone else and if it turns out that they were indeed calling you, the first think you make sure to tell them is that they were not calling your name and you clarify “my name is Mark” not Peter.
And if they say, ok, Mak, you correct them again and say, no, it is not Mak, it is Mark, because your name matters to you. Correct?
What makes a person a celebrity? It is the name of that person, whether it is real or just a stage name, but whenever someone hears that name, they know they are talking about that specific person or celebrity.
We humans, go to a great length to make our names recognized and well known, because IT DOES MATTER.
One of the most important thing is our NAME, we want everyone to know our name and not any funny or fake name, but our true name. That is why, we all want our names to be remembered… don’t we?
“Our names are an incredibly important part of our identity. They carry deep personal, cultural, familial, and historical connections. They also give us a sense of who we are, the communities in which we belong, and our place in the world. This is why mispronunciations, misuse of our preferred/ common names, or misgendering can negatively affect and possibly hurt and impact a sense of belonging on campus.”University of British Columbia
We can easily conclude that knowing the proper name for someone is extremely important and we would go to certain length to make our name well known.
How do you think He feels when you’ve been calling Him by a pagan title instead of using His proper name?
Do you honestly think that He is OK with it and that intentions is what matters? Honestly… Think twice before wrongly assuming this again.
Why do you think He shared His name YAHUAH 6,521 times in the Bible (Strong H3068)? If He would not want you to know His name, then He would have not shared it with humanity thousands of times.
And it is not only these 6,521 times, there are more than 10,000 times that His name (s) is used in the Bible. So, it is really important for us to know HIS true name. Isn’t it?
So, what will you do? Will you continue calling Him by someone else’s name or by a pagan title or call his real name? It is up to you.
As for me, I will always stick to His real name and not a title nor pagan names or whatever people wants to call Him. YAHUAH is His name.
