G-d is God!

I came across the word ‘G-d’ over countless occasions but all this while, I though it is a misspelling or simply for those who despise the big ‘O’ eg. Orgasm, Ovulation etc.

For some unknown reason (I think it must be a divine one), I decided to check it out this morning while sipping my new love … Green Tea.

I tried Answers.com and it brings me here … Among others, it says “Many Jews also write "G-d" instead of "God". While this later substitution is by no means required by religious law (only the Hebrew name, not the English, is holy), it is done to remind the reader of the holiness attached to God's name.” ... if you love God , man, you gotta check this out.

Excerpts:-

At the bottom of the hands, the two letters on each hand combine to form יהוה (YHVH), the name of God.

Honestly, I didn’t know His Almighty actually has an official 'name’! Interesting …

Names of God

The most important name of God in Judaism is the Tetragrammaton, the four-letter name of God. This name is first mentioned in the book of Genesis and is usually translated as 'the Lord'. Because Jews have, for a long period of time, considered it blasphemy to pronounce, the correct pronunciation of this name has been forgotten — the original Hebrew texts only included consonants. Modern scholars conjecture that it was pronounced "Yahweh". The Hebrew letters are named Yod-Heh-Waw-Heh: יהוה; note that Hebrew is written from right to left, rather than left to right as in English. In English it is written as YHWH or YHVH depending on the transliteration convention that is used.

Jews also call God Adonai, Hebrew for "Lord" (Hebrew: אֲדֹנָי) …

English translations of the Bible generally render YHWH as "the LORD" (in small capitals), and Adonai as "Lord" (in normal case). In a few cases, where "Lord YHWH" appears, the combination is written as "Lord GOD"… and I believe Muslims refer to the same holy being as Allah!

There are Gods? Check this out …

“God is presented as a living God, as contrasted with the lifeless gods of the heathen …”

“Adonai and other names of God may be written in the plural form to point out that this one God embodies all of the many gods that were worshipped by the ancestors of the Israelites and concurrently by the surrounding peoples.”

I hope the Bible University will soon start a new program: Divine Namology

The more I research into it, the more it indicates that 'newer' religions like Christian and Islam are cults designed with commercial and political agenda behind, nothing much Godly.
