Exodus 6:3 (New International Version, ©2011)
3 I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac and to Jacob as God Almighty,[a] but by my name the LORD I did not make myself fully known to them.
"LORD" is a title, not a name.
And in the KJV...
3And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty, but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them.
Much more accurate...
So why do not the RCC use it?
And why does biblegateway leave out the NEW WORLD TRANSLATION...it exists in great numbers...
It has been left out even when the vaguest of translations are included...
And why in the NEW KJV, they have this... 3 I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, as God Almighty, but by My name LORD[a] I was not known to them. "LORD" again...not very consistent...
And Young's literal translation... 3and I appear unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, as God Almighty; as to My name Jehovah, I have not been known to them;
LORD / Jehovah...I know which one looks MORE like a personal name.2 AnswersLanguages10 years ago
The RCC has claimed her as a saint...Does the Bible support the supposition?
The scriptures say NO.
Ecclesiastes 9;5,6 ...the dead can have nothing to do with what happens on the earth. And Mary is dead.
ALL prayer should be directed to Almighty God...
Only Jesus can be the channel for prayer TO God.

From the king James translation...
Isaiah 42;8... I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.
"LORD" is a title, not a personal name. So the above is not an accurate translation..
Now, from the NEW WORLD TRANSLATION...
(Isaiah 42:8) “I am Jehovah. That is my name; and to no one else shall I give my own glory, neither my praise to graven images.
Now, to see the difference...
(Exodus 6:3) And I used to appear to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob as God Almighty, but as respects my name Jehovah I did not make myself known to them.
"God Almighty", like "LORD", is a title...and in this scripture, the two are clearly separated...
So why did the KJ translators leave out Jehovah's NAME?

(Psalm 115:4-8) Their idols are silver and gold, The work of the hands of earthling man. 5 A mouth they have, but they cannot speak; Eyes they have, but they cannot see; 6 Ears they have, but they cannot hear. A nose they have, but they cannot smell. 7 Hands are theirs, but they cannot feel. Feet are theirs, but they cannot walk; They utter no sound with their throat. 8 Those making them will become just like them, All those who are trusting in them.
(Exodus 20:4-5) “You must not make for yourself a carved image or a form like anything that is in the heavens above or that is on the earth underneath or that is in the waters under the earth. 5 You must not bow down to them nor be induced to serve them, because I Jehovah your God am a God exacting exclusive devotion, bringing punishment for the error of fathers upon sons, upon the third generation and upon the fourth generation, in the case of those who hate me;6 AnswersReligion & Spirituality1 decade ago

Somebody asked the J.W.'s if they would attend a Palm Sunday meeting in exchange for the upcoming memorial?
the answer is that Palm Sunday has no scriptural basis...the memorial does...
(Matthew 20:28) Just as the Son of man came, not to be ministered to, but to minister and to give his soul a ransom in exchange for many.”
(Luke 22:19) Also, he took a loaf, gave thanks, broke it, and gave it to them, saying: “This means my body which is to be given in YOUR behalf. Keep doing this in remembrance of me.”

Earlier, the ADF admitted using the US-made gunsights with biblical references etched on them as they fight the Taliban in Afghanistan.
The ADF has several hundred of the sights, which are renowned by elite troops for their accuracy over long range, The Australian reports.
The gunsights, also used by US, British and New Zealand troops, have caused concern among military leaders that they may fuel views among extremists that the West is waging a war against Islam.
Are not the Taliban...muslims...
