Why JESUS asked us to use his name.
Why he teched the prayer with out using his name.
As I explained in another thread, the "Name" is not the person itself, but the attribute of what his Work stands for.
"G-d" name is not "G-d" or "Elohim" nor is our name "elohim",
It is not a Title to be used to call someone by, it is the attribute by which one is described.
He taught to pray to the "Father (Abba/Dad)" and not to him.
Remember, he equaled himself to every other human being from any walk of society, even after the works, defining us as friends, brothers. Noted also he is the "first" of many brothers.
When you ask in his "name" you are asking in a manner consistent with full faith, love and not a shred of doubt. Not to a person or to a man (which is vanity & idolatry).
This ends worship of men, religion and all such sciences and begins illuminating Eternal Life in the faithful (one full of faith; experiencing free will).
People use the name Jesus simply because they do not know the name Of Jesus...
Jesus is what men called him... but this is not the name he called himself.
There is a name revealed to a man and this is the name he would apply to Himself...
This name becomes His identity and by it he achieves all things...
And this name is ONE...
Which prayer is effective and correct to GOD.
with the name JESUS OR With out the name JESUS.
Two prayers are avilable in christianity to GOD.
Jesus is not god; so the prayers should be addressed to the Creator-God whom Jesus used to address as God-the-Father; Christians should follow in Jesus' footsteps to be his truthful followers.
Whom did Jesus address his prayers in the garden of Gethsemane?
To the Creator-God, God-the-Father.
How very peaceful of you to start a religious conflict with Christians.
So, now a Christian will come here and state that Allah is not god.
Then what? Come out guns a blazin'?
I don't know whether you noticed, but no gunfire yet. Maybe you aren't right about religion starting wars after all.
Perhaps not, especially if we ignore the last two thousand years and what is currently going on in the world.
Ok, well I like to take the big picture into account, myself. But that's just me.
Yet, you missed the "big picture" entirely, that being the last two thousand years and what is currently going on in the world, that IS the big picture.
Not entirely. And as long as there are those who maintain this stance we will be that much further away from a solution. In my opinion.
well for solution we need to scrap religion ...beelzedad is right since abhramic religions came into being , war based on religions increased ...there were wars before too...but those where for personal ambition not religious ambitions...religion ,especially abhramic ones have turned world into war zone by their conviction about my way only way ...it is too dangerous concept for human race...in end my way just another way can still prevail but my way or else...beelzedad is right...we need to wake up before we see humans fighting in name of unproven concept and getting extinct
I'm not arguing that religion isn't dangerous. I'm pretty sure Beelzedad wants to kill God, which is a bad thing. However, you cannot blame all of the wars in the history of man on religion, without coming off a fanatic. I have no problem with the idea of the absence of organized religion, just believe we should be honest about history.
nothing form more dangerous weapon than motivate people for cause + political ambition of some...fighting for god , fighting for heaven etc are motivating factors and worst part of it is that since god and heaven are unproven concepts , people can easily be misled for it...that is where danger lies...nothing divides people more than religion and politics and combination of these two can turn fatal...
Not at all, I'm quite content with the existence of both Zeus and Thor.
Particular religion is not required for one who follow the prayer with out the name JESUS.
WHY JESUS ASKED US TO USE HIS NAME.
I think Jesus did not say it to use his name; it might be the sinful scribes of Bible.
Jesus alway prayed to the Creator-God Allah YHWH whom he used to say God-the-Father.
Christian should follow Jesus to reform themselves.
Don't worry; we will resolve the matters peacefully and with rational arguments.
Jesus, Moses and Muhammad were sent by the same ONE the Creator-God; with the same message.
how boring...god had to keep sending ...well ask god to be good in training his people ,so that message can be delivered to all for ever...what is point when god keeps sending one after another who in turn create one more religion and divide human race...doesnot make sense , unless god wanted to divide...if that was his target , surely his men did wonderful job...
well use his name?...why would any want to use jesus...is jesus a tool or thing to be used or misused?..ya surely his name has been misused to control people since years but why would jesus purposefully ask people to do that?
according to a late night cartoon network cartoon god's name is bob.
Just scriptures from the Bible for anyone interested.
6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. 7 If you had known me, you would have known my Father also. From now on you do know him and have seen him.”
11 "This Jesus is the stone that was rejected by you, the builders, which has become the cornerstone. 12 And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”
1 "What causes quarrels and what causes fights among you? Is it not this, that your passions are at war within you? 2 You desire and do not have, so you murder. You covet and cannot obtain, so you fight and quarrel. You do not have, because you do not ask. 3 You ask and do not receive, because you ask wrongly, to spend it on your passions. 4 You adulterous people! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God."
13 "Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it."
I think Jesus did not say to use or misuse his name; it might be the sinful scribes of the Bible.
Jesus alway prayed to the Creator-God Allah YHWH whom he used to say God-the-Father.
Christians should follow Jesus to reform themselves.

Since I identify as Christian, because I believe in Jesus as the savior, I speak of it often. I have found that in all my conversations with the most intelligent, and/or highly articulate, and some not so articulate; I am bombarded with many objections to my faith.I am accused of being...

Jesus prayed to the Creator-God whom he used to call God-the-Father; was this God-the-Father husband of Mary, his mother.I don’t think so; he just showed his love to the Creator-God in this way.

The teaching that the New Testament was originally written in the Greek language is not only false but deceptive. The Hellenization of the Church not only produced a corrupted New Testament, but caused a Greek deity to displace the true Messiah. This was the work, or deeds, done by the Nicolaitanes...

There have been a lot of discussions on Christianity, atheist and Bhudism. Anyone interested to take another look at Islamic teachings? What differentiates Islam, Jews, Christtian and Bhudist? What are most of the conflicts about? What makes someone Godless?
