Is it Wrong to Use the Name of “Jesus?”
By David J. Stewart
I received the following e-mail from a woman whose friend taught her that it's wrong to use the name Jesus...
First of all, I want to say thank you for creating Jesus-is-Savior website and I'm a frequent visitor. I am always looking forward to new articles. I'm really sorry to hear that you're experiencing pain right now and you're in my prayers.
Secondly, my name is _____ and I'm deaf. A deaf friend, who I used to go to church (an Independence Baptist church) with, put a video of himself on Facebook which gave me goosebumps after watching him. He said the words such as "God", "Lord", "Church", "Jesus", etc in the Bible are all wrong. He said these names have different meaning than Hebrew/Greek names. He said we should not use the word "Jesus", because it is not the same Yeshua, the Son of God. He said it is proper to say Yeshua (not Jesus), YHWH (not God), etc. I already know that Yeshua is Jesus' Jewish name, but Jesus is an English word for the English-speaking people. Yeshua and Jesus are the same, no different! I sent him a comment telling him if the words "God", "Jesus", etc are wrong, then who are we worshiping? It's like we are worshiping false Jesus who is the Son of God and we are worshiping "something else" whatever he thinks what "Jesus" means. After sending him the comment, he replied to me saying that I need to do some research in Greek language to find the true meaning of the names. I told him that I cannot read Greek language and I also told him that KJV 1611 is the first English Bible translating from Hebrew/Greek language so English-speaking people can read in their own language. I know he has been deceived and don't know where he got all the information from. I'm sure you have heard about this subject before, but I would like to hear from you what you think of all that.
I know you may not feel up to replying to my email due to pain, for that I can understand. I'm not in a hurry for a reply, so take your time and get well.
May the Lord be with you always!
Thank you for your e-mail. I love Jewish people just like I love all people. I am not anti-Semitic. I don't think a Christian can be right with the Lord and not love the Jewish people AND the Arab people as well. God is NO respecter of persons. I get upset with Christians who praise the Jews while bashing the Arabs. The Jews are as wicked as any people. We are all hell-deserving sinners.
Having said that, many Jewish people, especially their religious and community leaders are arrogant, high-minded, Christ-rejecters. Judaism is a works-based false religion which most Jews follow, which denies Jesus as the Messiah. Most Jews are Christ-rejecters, sadly. Their religious leaders are so pompous and sinfully proud that “think” they act superior to everyone else.
For example: They say they spell G_d without the "o" to show respect...
Yet, at the same time their holy book, the Talmud, teaches that Jesus was boiled in urine and human waste, and that priests can have sex with 3-year old girls...
They have no respect for the God of the Bible.
Jack Chick is a staunch religious Zionist who has published many tracts in support of the Jews, including his tract, LOVE THE JEWISH PEOPLE. He has another tract that portrays Arabs as psychos who strap dynamite to themselves and go around blowing up McDonalds restaurants. He is discriminating against an entire race of people, and whitewashing the Jews. Jack Chick dare not ever say one negative words about Jews.
When I recently went for surgery in Los Angeles, I was staying in West Hollywood. I saw dozens of Jewish temples all over the place and the big "Hollywood" sign against the mountain just a short distance away. I was staying across the street from CBS Television City and down the street from Paramount Studios. It's rich Jews who own and control Hollywood--that sick, filthy, godless, cesspool of iniquity. Steven Spielberg's movies ALL curse in God's name, even Jurassic Park. Jews control the newsmedia, the government at it's highest levels, The Council On Foreign Relations (who control the U.S.), and they are all Freemasons (a false religion based upon the Jewish Kabala, a Jewish book of mysticism and occultism originating from their captivity when they were in Babylon for 70 years). As strange as all this seems, it's true.
I love Jewish people and the average Jewish person is as much a victim as the rest of the world. But the most evil, murderous, greedy and richest people in this world, who control everything from behind the scenes, just so happen to be mostly Jewish...
This stuff is bizarre, granted, but truth is stranger than fiction. So as a long answer to your question, most religious Jews HATE Jesus and prefer to call God by some other name. Judaism rejects the New Testament and teach that Jesus is not the Christ...
So, I love Jew and Arab alike, they all need to be saved. I have written a large article on Israel and the Bible...
I hope that helps,
