Y is for Yahweh

Yahweh: The name of the God of the Bible practicing Jews and Christians acknowledge and follow. Yahweh is the proper name of God in the Old Testament. There are other names for God such as Jehovah (along with many derivitives) and Elohim and El Shaddai. 

He is called by Father in the New Testament among other names and titles. I trust my life in the God above. 

Other people believe in something else that helps explain the universe and their place in it. There have been many religions and beliefs since mankind first walked the Earth. I have numerous friends who belong to Alcoholics Anonymous and all they are required to believe in is a higher sources that is bigger than them and can help. Same with the Freemasons as many believe in a Supreme Being of their choice. 

Still, others do not believe in anything at all. This life is one and done. We as a human race are nothing special and once we die, that is all. Nothing else. Zero. Zilch. Nada. 

My theme for A to Z has been The Paranormal and the Supernatural. I hope I’ve presents interesting topics. Some may be controversial, but that’s okay. More fuel for the fire for open dialogue. 

Tomorrow: Zombie 

Question: Do you believe in a higher source?
