Greetings in that Divine and Most Precious Name of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
So would Our Lord mind if I call Him Josh
Exactly my point.
I'm NOT calling people wrong for saying Jesus. I personally see it as a weaker transliteration. That's all.
I just thought it was ironic that somebody would use the name in a bad manner, and its not even his name. I hear people say it all the time - "Jesus Christ". I think "If you only knew his real name, you'd be educated not to take it in vain".
It's just irony folks. I do not think you are incorrect, but just using a weaker translation.
I don't know if it matters to God. I know we were commanded to pray in his name.
Please forgive if I've offended in this thread. Wasn't my intent, I just saw irony. It is also my opinion that saying "Jesus" is a weaker translation. Of course, I won't budge from this, but I don't think people are wrong who say it.
The question that would remain is if I believe EO Christians should say "Yeshua" rather than "Jesus". I believe that the English speaking churches should under the guidance of their bishops. But if not - I guess they just don't, its up to them.
But please brothers & sisters, there are bigger fish to fry than my opinion on this matter. I very well could be wrong as I am a fallible person. I try my best to seek truth in the mind that God created me with.
