I'm new to this site. I understand the bible. The audience of the bible was not supposed to be college educated and have the internet. God is not something that can be put into words. Saying the name cheapens the meaning of what is. If you think you could encapsulate what it is in three letters you've heard all your life,your discontent is aimed in the wrong direction. Athiests are closer to understanding a higher level of conscientious than others because you're not satisfied with what you've been exposed to. However, that's where your journey ended. And not searching for your own spiritual content isn't worth any title. People are faithful because they've heard about the name from someone that doesnt need faith. However, that primary source is from long ago and the people assigned to pass along the message weren't apt to carry the wealth of responsibility that they were given because they never experienced it first hand. Like the game telephone. The first person sounded crazy. But they were saying something the second person couldn't understand.
Words are finite and the name is infinite. To try to put into words (a finite tool ) and sunopsize what it is, would only cheapen it and only confuse the audience if they happen to be well educated.
I joined this site to find others that are familiar with what I'm talking about and to help redirect those that believe there is no commonality between everything and that eternity doesn't exist. I'm fond of debate and haven't engaged with anyone that feels strongly about anything having to do with theology since college. I Wana know about the God you don't believe in because I forgot what everyone else is so passionate about.
Thanks for having me.
