Haven’t done one of these posts answering Bible contradictions in a while.  If you are interested in our other posts dealing with Bible contradictions see our Collection of Posts Responding to Bible Contradictions.

For today’s post will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: What is God’s name?

Here are the four answers which the skeptic believes shows a Bible contradiction:

Jehovah

“God spoke further to Moses and said to him, “I am the Lord; 3 and I appeared to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, as [a]God Almighty, but by My name, Lord, I did not make Myself known to them.’” (Exodus 6:2-3)

Jealous

“for you shall not worship any other god, for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God—” (Exodus 34:14)

Jah

“To shoot [a]from concealment at the blameless; Suddenly they shoot at him, and do not fear.” (Psalm 64:4)

Several years ago, widespread corruption among the world’s biggest banks emerged out of conspiracy theory into breaking world news, revealing the long hidden secret that what are known as Libor rates had been illegally manipulated for decades. Libor rates significantly affect everything from mortgages to student loans. As banks falsely reported artificially low borrowing rates, these banks were implicated together in the theft of many billions of dollars from millions upon millions of people. The magnitude of corruption was especially historic, not only in an international sense, but spiritually speaking was representative of the volume and degree of mass-coordinated evil that exists in broad daylight, as well as a truly perfect example of mankind’s utter and desperate need of God’s grace to have hope of salvation from the idolatry of money.
