A question about G-d;

In many internet newslines and various web ministries I see God's name marred by this: G-d. Or L-rd. I find this extremely irritating and even blaphemous. Is his glorious name depicted like this to be politicaly correct? Does the full name of God offend the majority. Jesus did say many will hate His name. It is especially disturbing to see ministries doing this while attempting to teach His Word.<br>

This is done by the Jews for respect out of God's name. They believe it is disrespectfull to completely spell out the Lord's name. When the scribes were originally writing the Bible, and when they would come to God's name, they would go bath, change their clothes before they would even write down one jot or tittle. This is why you see this today, it is in respect of our Lord.<br>

Hope this helped.<br>

I didn't know that. I guess others also do this to respect the Jews' belief on this. Personally, I don't think G-d (God) minds at all.<br>
Thanks Carpentersdaughter for making that clear.<br>

Hey christian,<br>
<br>
I've noticed this quite a few times from you.<br>
<br>
Are you trying to refer to God as a she? <p></p><i></i>
