Something to think SERIOUSLY about;
God has reserved the name "I AM" for himself... Read here in Exodus 3,
3 And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them?
14 And God said unto Moses, I Am That I Am: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I Am hath sent me unto you.
Jesus himself affirmed that he was God, when he claimed the same name, the jews on scene realized that by calling bhimself I AM..he was calling himself GOD, and set to stone him for it !..check John 8 ;
58 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.
59 Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by. (KJV)
Jesus continually referred to himself as I AM..the critical point that few understand is that any Jew using that title claimed by God for himself, would be inviting a stoning by fellow Jews.
To refer to yourself as you did in post #11 , could be considered as blasphemous.
"Politically correct" language, is really Orwellian 'newspeak'. (Michael Cutler)
