The world of religion and Christianity is awash with all kinds of false doctrines and beliefs.
Biblical Truths seeks to proclaim real biblical truths — the truth and nothing but the truth.
In simple terms, we simply seek to help our audience discover what the Bible really teaches.
Being independent of any large corporate body or major religious organization, we do not favor nor cater to any religious organization’s traditions, persuasions, or beliefs. We simply and independently seek to proclaim what the Bible really teaches. Likewise, we are not politically motivated, nor do we support any political agenda or ideology. Thus, we seek to operate independently, guided and inspired only by God through the Holy Spirit.
If you would like to support our humble efforts in doing God’s Work, you’re welcome to do so. Please feel free to share any or all of the articles on this website as long as you fairly include due credit to our website as the source of the information.
Divine Names are definitely among “proper nouns.” Definitely, like any proper nouns, they are never changeable by anyone, at any time in history, or at any place in heaven or on earth.
Since our goal is to reach the general public with our message, and so that we will be understood by the common person, we use the names and terminologies that are commonly recognized by all, in the same way that it is allowable to use a certain “alias” to refer to a certain individual. Also, the use of “titles” are allowable, such as “The Father” or “The Son.”
However, for the information of the more advanced Bible reader or scholar, please know that we personally believe in and privately use among ourselves the proper use of the correct names when referring to the Deity. But in our published articles, the following common names more accurately refer to their original names or persons as follows:
- God = Elohim [plural]; EL = God [singular]
- God the Father = El Elyon; or YHWH El Elyon
- LORD = YHWH (pronounced “Yahweh”)
- LORD God = YHWH Elohim (or Yahweh Elohim)
- Christ = Messiah (meaning “The Anointed One”)
- Jesus = Yahshua (meaning “YHWH saves,” or “YHWH is salvation”)
- Lord = Master
Why we do not openly use such Sacred Names in our public articles?
Since these are Sacred Names, they are therefore considered holy, precious, and sanctified. Being such, we wish to protect those names from the possibility of being unnecessarily abused, blasphemed, criticized, or ridiculed. Christ Himself said, “Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces” (Matthew 7:6).
However, the true children and followers of God will surely (or eventually) know their true Father’s and their true Savior’s names. Notice that when Christ was on earth, He did not openly, publicly, and blatantly flaunt His Father’s true name, but simply used the proper “Titles” and referred to Him as the “Father” or My “Father.” However, to His own disciples, He revealed the Father’s true name, as recorded twice in His long prayer to the Father in the Garden of Gethsemane prior to His arrest and crucifixion, as recorded in John 17:6 and in verse 26.
BIBLICAL TRUTHS STAFF
Edmond D. Macaraeg is the editor and main article writer on BiblicalTruths.com.
He has been into intensive biblical studies for more than 50 years and has been a duly ordained elder/minister, preacher, and pastor for over 40 years now. God has used him to raise up dozens of congregations over the span of several decades.
Concurrent to his serving as a church pastor, for several years, he has also maintained a weekly radio broadcast on biblical truths on various radio stations. Meanwhile, he also moved on to conduct a series of Public Bible Lectures (supported by fully-documented PowerPoint slides) in several cities, where he also confidently entertained live Question and Answer Sessions at the end of each of these Public Lecture presentations.
Graduating cum laude with a Bachelor’s degree in Education, he has also obtained masteral degree units in this field as well. But his greater passion for pursuing serious biblical studies, history, sciences, research, writing, and public speaking was graciously used by God to help contribute in the efforts to conquer deception and ignorance, and instead help proclaim Biblical Truths in the face of great religious confusion extant in this world today.
On a personal note, he is familiar and conversant in eight languages and dialects, and has traveled widely both locally and internationally. He is married to the former Lorna Gonzales, of which they have seven grown-up and married children and presently have 15 grandchildren.
