Description : If you have ever picked up a Bible, attended a church, or entered into a spiritual conversation with a Christian, you are probably well acquainted with these two terms: "God" and "the Lord". Both are frequently used in reference to the creator of the heavens and the earth. For many people, those words actually represent His name. What about to you? Is "God" His name? Or, is it "the Lord"? His Name Forever is a must read for anyone who wants to know His true name. It is a book that will help you understand why all those other terms ever used are not His Name Forever. There is a Story Behind the Name of God that explains its significance to Him and to those who have worshiped Him in times past. There is only one name that He revealed as His own. Is that name even relevant today? As you read, you will see that this one name did not change, but people did. From the time of Seth in the Old Testament to the era of the Messiah in the New Testament, the Almighty One had the same name. This book will explain, in an easy to follow way, why so few people, even today, call Him by His name. After reading this book that is well-researched and supported by biblical and other historical documents, you will be challenged to call Him by His Name Forever.
Description : Today, almost all the major Christian sects tell their followers what they can or cannot read. The truth could be disastrous to their faith. In 1562, the Vatican established a special censoring office called Index Expurgatorius, whose sole purpose was to prohibit the publication of "Erroneous Passages of the Early Church Fathers," which carried statements opposing their modern-day dogma. The Word is whatever the Christian Church says it is and when Vatican archivists came across "genuine copies of the Church Fathers, they corrected [edited, added, abridged, condensed, and supplemented] them according to the Expurgatory Index" (Index Expurgatorius Vaticanus, R. Gibbings, ed., Dublin, 1837; The Literary Policy of the Church of Rome, Joseph Mendham, J. Duncan, London, 1830, 2nd ed., 1840; The Vatican Censors, op. cit., p. 328). But throughout history, few but the great thinkers of society understood this symbiotic relationship of politics and religion, and those who spoke out became stigmatized by both the powerful priesthood and the ruling oligarchy. "You sniveling priest, you are imposing delusions upon society for your own aggrandizement" (Voltaire, French philosopher, rationalist, free thinker). ________________________________________ All developed societies are but an extension of the political views of the ruling oligarchy upon the many, the suffering poor. "If every criminal and inhumane act ever committed were traced to its root cause, that root would be buried deep in religion" (Sherry Matulis, activist, 1931). ________________________________________ The most infamous Catholic of the all time, one of history's great mass murderers, Hitler, realizes the symbiotic relationship between children and religion and puts it succinctly in the twentieth century: "The state must declare the child to be the most precious treasure of the people. As long as the government is perceived as working for the benefit of the children, the people will happily endure almost any curtailment of liberty and almost any deprivation" (Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf).
