The Christian God is Not a God

M. M. Oboh, B. I. Oboh


This is a study based on God’s revelation of His name to Moses in Exodus 3:13-15. It is termed in this paper as Nomenclatorial Revelation. The essence is to make a correction of the inappropriate ascription of an indefinite article ‘a’ to God instead of the definite article ‘the’ that correctly expresses His Name and what Christianity believes about Him. Different methods of analysis, philosophical, historical, sociological, and theological were employed in the treatment of materials relating to grammatical, religious, biblical, linguistic sources and so on.  Evidences abound and agree on the uniqueness of God. It was shown that expression of an indefinite article such as ‘a’ to God is a misrepresentation which equates Him with the idols, principalities and powers. Moreover, the research further shows that in reality, God warns against such by declaring that He should be known and addressed throughout all generations as “ ‘I AM WHO I AM,’… ‘The LORD, ...” (Ex.3:14-15) Therefore, Christians are asked to truly and consistently portray God in His Nomenclatorial Revelation in speech and theoretically as it befits His Lordship in every form and expressions such as the Saviour and not a Saviour. They should also allow it have a positive impact on their conduct to one another and to other people as well as to make it serve to improve on their service, reverence, and commitment to God.
