  1. Nice

    • God is not a person but a quality.A person with a godly quality is called Lord.There are so many qualities of god,the all loving,all knowing etc.

  2. God is the name of the almighty creator who has no equivalent, there. Is only one God but gods are many. Even though there has been mistakes of mixing God with lord, God can not be used for lord but god can be used for lord and vice-versa. There is only one God who created heaven and earth. Christians refer to Him as Jehovah while the Muslims calls Him Allah. For example, the lawyers refer to the judge as my lord not and never my God. So therefore they are two different words, God is totally different to lord.

  3. Christ said that, “I died because of your sins (ego)”
    This means if you do away with your ego, you can experience the Christ within you.
    All religions are equal & single philosophy.

    • I think God and Lord could be synonymous but with little difference as to their level of power and authority- like the king and queen and their lords. They are both divine as applied to God, the Father; and Lord, Jesus Christ with the father as Supreme being, and the Son as His Anointed Messiah. Jesus is divine or God because He has must have the Godly substance of His father as He was taken from His bosom and made as His Father’s son. This to me is the practical reason to consider Jesus as, could be, God also. God expresses supremacy while Lord implies supremacy because a lord could be supreme to everyone and everything but one; but God is supreme with no exception to no one. Is it not that Jesus said my Father is greater than I.

  4. GOD AND THE LORD ARE DIFFERENT POWERS. THE LORD NAME OVER OUR ENTIRE HISTORY GOES BACK AS ANCESTORS TO LOCATE. GOD WAS WITH THE LORD HE WAS A ANGEL THROWN OUT OF HEAVEN ACTUALLY LEFT BECAUSE ALL CREDITS TO GOD NOT HIM THE LORD. THE LORD ANGEL SATAN TURNED INTO SAINT THEN MANDE MANY FALSE GODS. ONLY TWO GOD AND THE LORD AND YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO MAKE PEOPLE TO BE THE ALMIGHTY OR CALL THEM GODS.

ONLY TWO GOD AND THE LORD AND YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO MAKE PEOPLE TO BE THE ALMIGHTY OR CALL THEM GODS. THE SAINT MADE MANY GODS THROUGH THE MIND. WHY GOD HAS TWO NAMES MANY IN TWO YOU WILL FIND

  6. God refers to our Heavenly Father, also know as Elohim, as we are His children. God is also the Father and God of Christ. Lord refers to Christ, also known as Jehovah, as He represents the Father in all things and has been delegated all ruling power over this earth, which He created under the direction of our Father, and the people here on and He is the only way back to the Father as He atoned for the sins of mankind and overcame death through His resurrection. Therefore, we must obey Christ’s commandments if we want to have eternal life. Christ said to Mary, “I go to my Father and your Father, my God and your God”. When Christ was bapized, Heavenly Father said, This is my Beloved Son in whom I am well pleased.” There are many other examples throughout the New and Old Testament as well as the Book of Mormon that support these claims.

  7. god with a small “g” refers to other gods, while “God” with a capital “G” refers to the almighty, the creator of the universe.Lord when spelled completely in capital letters e.g.”LORD” refers to God himself.But when spelled with a small “g” refers to other entities.

  8. i dont get why people believe in a stupid book

  9. So,if we pray who must be called? The god father or jesus christ.?im comfused when it comes to praying..if should pray to god or to the son jesus christ?

    • Great question. Christ has taught us multiple times to pray unto the Father in His name. In other words, we address God the Father, Heavenly Father, Father in Heaven, Kind and Gracious Father, etc. We then do our best to recognize His hand in our lives and thank Him for the many blessings He has given us. We then ask Him for things that we are in need of. And we close the prayer in the name of Jesus Christ (which means we say all of these things with real intent of trying our best to follow Christ and His teachings). I also try to ask for the “Holy Spirit,” “Spirit of God,” or “Spirit” to be with me throughout the day that I may be more led and guided to do those things that are in accordance with God’s will like serving others, loving others, being more selfless, etc.

    • You pray to God and put it in Jesus name since the only way to God is through his Son Jesus Christ

  10. Jesus is lord
