Who in the world is Gd?

I don't have to believe in what you believe in nor do I have to agree with what you agree upon, but I will say, either be for something or against it. I believe in God and I believe in saying Merry Christmas and Happy Easter. Now just because a person or people do not believe what I believe, that does not mean that I have to be afraid to say it. Here is my point:

I was on Facebook one day and one of my friends had put something on her status like she is glad of the power of G_d of how he freely on and so forth. My response was, so if God is so freely giving, what is wrong with you not adding that o to his name? I wasn't trying to be ugly, but if you are gonna talk about the name of the Lord, then why can't you just spell it out...GOD? Or, would you not spell it out because other people will be offended by it?

I'm not going to apologize for saying God's name at work just because someone may not believe in Him. I am also not going to apologize for sending out a Christmas card to someone even if I know they do not believe in Christmas. First and foremost, it ain't about me, it ain't about them. But I do want to know who in the world is Gd? Do I address my prayers by saying Dear Gd, I can't add this o in your name because whoever is listening might take offense to me saying God out loud? Even an atheist says they do not believe in God, they never said they don't believe in this Gd fellow.

Now turn to your neighbor and repeat after me: Ain't God good!!


  1. I think this person was not giving her FB friends enough credit. I am sure they were smart enough to figure out what she was referring to, so it makes no sense to omit the 'o'. If my belief in God is going to offend someone, they are the ones with the problem.

  2. Texting is taking over the English language unless God texted His name that way first. Hmmm....well, maybe not.
