    If God has a name is it really that important if we use that exact name or is it alriggfht as long as we worship GOD? ...Noone saying that God has "a lot of names" please. I am looking for non-double-talk answers here...be specific and give evidence of your assertions...

    Call by any name you please.. The 'invisible master' is not supposed to react negative simply because he/she is believed to be an embodiment of unconditional love!!

    I think God has many names. You can call him anything you like. You'll always be right. He's the universe and more.

    (Acts 4:10)  Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole.

    (Acts 4:11)  This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner.

    (Acts 4:12)  Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

    Yes, God's name is Yah. You can find his name hidden in other names in Hebrew. Yah Shua, HalleluYah. Hebrew halleluyah ‘praise ye the Lord.’
    All the other names He is called in Hebrew are related to His attributes. Only Yah is His name.
    Messiah was Immanuel..but they called him Yahshua. Therefore as he said "He came in his Father's name.
    There is no other name which you can call on and be saved/helped.

    God's name would have to be God, wouldn't it?  Otherwise, it is like asking "What is Bruce's name?"   The only way to correctly ask is to formulate it this way: What is the name of "a" God or "your God". 

    Once you formulate the question correctly, you see that all these various answers make more sense, as they all represent nothing more than various personal beliefs.

    Jhn 1:1  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
    Jhn 1:4  In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
    Isa 7:14  Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.
    Mat 1:23     Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.
    Luk 1:31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.
    Jhn 1:14  And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.

    There is no other name Greater Than Jesus and Jesus =Iesous = "Jehovah is salvation"

    Daledad8… I don’t know where you are going with this question but I will try to answer it according to the Word of God and my personal relationship with God.

    God does have a name; and since God revealed himself to the Hebrew nation, having chosen Moses to be called His friend, we must look to the Hebrew language for the answer. God’s name in Hebrew is Yahweh, although when Moses asked “Whom shall I say has sent me?” God answered, “Tell them I AM has sent you.”

    If one has a personal relationship with God the use of the title “God” is much like your son or daughter calling you “Daddy”. No one would deny access to their children for not calling them George, or Henry; a simply Daddy would be enough to get the attention of any loving father.

    As for the “I AM”… God wants us to know that He is whomever we need Him to be whenever we need Him. If you are sick God is your healer; if you are in need of counsel, God is your counselor. That is why God refers to Himself as “I AM”.

    Surely God will not deny us access to Him because we do not call Him Jehovah or Yahweh because He is our loving Father and He loves us all as His children. I hope this answers your question.
