God of the Week: Yahweh

God of the Week 9/7/2009: Yahweh

YahwehYahweh (YHWH) is a god worshiped from roughly 1,000 BCE in western Asia to the present all over the world, though his nature has varied greatly in that time. In sone religious texts he is viewed as an anthropomorphic character, while in others his form is of such a foreign nature that no man may look upon his true form and live. His great prophet Moses is said to have viewed Yahweh as a bush that burned yet was not consumed.

In the first or second century CE, Yahweh began to be merged with a messianic savior figure, Jesus the Christ. Today, in the Christian religion, Yahweh, Jesus, and a non-descript ghost of some sort are viewed as forming a trinity, while that view of Yahweh is considered a heresy in Judaism .

    Nondescript ghost?
    I’d say that ascribing the character of personhood to the Holy Spirit takes it well beyond nondescript…

    • It’s pretty non-descript whether a church doctrine assigned status of “personhood” to it or not. If you can find a description of it, please link to it, it would be great to read.

  2. “… a bush that burned yet was not consumed.”

    Sounds like a yeast infection, or vaginitis. Is it any wonder it wasn’t “consumed” ?

    “There will be no peace on Earth until My Son’s Kingdom. I will crush every kingdom now standing and rock the earth off its foundation. I Yahweh will destroy every enemy to My throne, and who can stop Me? Who can turn back My anger? No one.” – Yahweh

    Matthew 10:34 “Don’t assume that I came to bring peace on the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.”

    Exodus 15:3 “The LORD is a warrior; Yahweh is His name.”

    Yahweh, our God and Creator pours out His wrath upon mankind leading up to Armageddon. It is His will that you all know exactly where it is coming from.

  4. I for one am peculiarly sexually aroused by vaginaadonna’s posting.
