Why is there no religion established in the name of their God?

Why is there no religion established in the name of their God?

For years, I have wondered why there is no name of God for every established religion. They refer to the unknown Spirit as God.

Does Father, Allah, Yeshua, or Christ the name of God? Remember, Abraham, Moses, or Christ, didn't proclaim the name of God they're praying and worshipping?

For years, scholars and religious leaders have been trying to put [God's] name based on what history suggests. I noticed each religion was founded after the person who organized it.

Let me mention a few examples. Joseph Smith for Mormon. Islam for Mohammed. Christian for Christ. Methodist for John Westly and Luther for Lutherans. All of these churches are the same. To denote a reformation against the previously established religion.

Just think for a moment: Does a change of religion's name will put us in heaven? Or will it lead to hell if we don't join the newly reformed denomination? Does it make sense?

Ask all these denominations if we worship or pray for the same God. You will be surprised to learn that we ALL pray for the same God. My question, if we are praying for the same God regardless of my faith: has my prayer been heard or not?

Clearly, religion is not the answer to saving humanity, for their failure or their destruction. Rather, helping them understand the true value of religion in their own lives. This is why people cannot put a name on their God because they do not know anything about the God they serve. That's a fact.

Many generations have passed, but the only thing that has changed is the name of the religious denomination. Nothing else, nothing more. Do I know the name of the God I serve? Of course, I know them (notice THEM, not HIM). It is you and me. I do not serve to please God. I serve because I love my family, my friends, my church friends, everyone. I don't care what their beliefs or opinions are.

God is not in the pages of their book written by men like us. Neither in their creed or dogma. God is you and me. We are the volume of books where God lives and exists.

God has MANY names ... He REVEALS Himself over time to mankind THROUGH His names

God is the Great "I AM" ... Almighty, All-seeing, All-knowing, All-powerful, All-sufficient, Omnipotent & Omniscient

“Yet the LORD longs to be gracious to you … to show you compassion” ~Isaiah 30:18
God loves you, God knows you …God is with you & His greatest gift is that you can know Him.

In this post are some of God's names:
The Fractal State of Humanity ~ Hidden forces for you and against you"

I'm not sure you read my comments here Vince ... as previously written:
What I share with you took hours of thought ... the hope is that you would thoughtfully read
... my intent is to NOT overwhelm you ... but you don't raise questions that can be answered with yes or no ... or a simple sentence
.. AGAIN: perhaps read 1 comment at a time and respond / ask questions

(beBee limits how much one can say so have to break up into in parts due to limit on words ...

That's NOT the name of God. When Moses asked him he only said I AM THAT I AM. These are just Hebrew pertaining to the equal "word" of God when translated into their own dialect.

#2 Yes, that is exactly its name. It is usually represented as YHVH. Jews do not pronounce it. They prefer to call him Adonai. Christians translate it as Yaveh (Catholics) or Jehova (Protestants).

“For God so loved the world that He GAVE his One and Only Son, that whoever BELIEVES in HIM shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.” ~ John 3

Believers are receivers: “have eternal life”
... are “born again” ... become new creations in Christ
... “in His Light, we have light” ~ Psalm 36
Spirit to spirit: The Holy Spirit communes with the spirit of believers ... this is the “good deposit” (1 Corinthians 1:21-22)

"The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit.” ~ 1 Corinthians 2:14

We choose to believe ... or choose NOT to believe ... free will is another gift from God, the “Great-Giver”
What follows John 3:16 is one of the strongest indictments against those who love being in the dark.
This is the verdict:
Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. 20 Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. 21 But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.”

God is the God of now ... that is why He said: “I AM” ... Ever-present
God is not bound by time ... He is Infinite ... eternity: has no end
FYI: Humans are finite

God is NOT an Indian-giver ;~) ... but He is the “Great-Giver”
You say: “If this is something that will be given to me, this is not eternal. The word to NOTE was GIVEN”
You are confused ... getting your wires crossed ;~) Vince
God is your Creator ... the Giver of life:
“For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.” ~ encourage you read all of Psalm 139:

mentioned earlier) one of God's names: “El Chuwl” ... The God Who Gave You Birth

“He was dead before even the world/earth was created” ... Do not understand what you mean here?

If you read Genesis 1 ... God the Father & Jesus Christ were present for the creation of man
Then God said, “Let us create man in our image, in our likeness”
In Colossians 1... we learn of the Supremacy of Christ
Colossians 1
"The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. 17 He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. 19 For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, 20 and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross."

This Scripture in Colossians 1 answers what you say here: “but the gift to earth is us, the humanity not Christ”
Your words reflect human error
“all things have been created through Him and FOR Him...HE is before all things, and in him all things hold together”
Earth was created for man to inhabit & to be a good steward over ... when you consider how the earth is being pillaged and polluted I think we have demonstrated terrible stewardship ;~)
