In discussing the use of the proper name of God, Yahweh, in liturgy, the topic came up that I thought worthy of discussion.
The Jewish people had traditions whereby the name of God was not to be used or written. When I was researching this on the USCCB website, I found numerous links where the name of God was used extensively in the footnotes. So I do not see that the doctrine of the Church mirrors that of Jewish tradition. Also, the Bible does not forbid the use of the name of God. I guess I am with Peter that said that the yoke of Judaism that their Fathers could not bear should not be put upon the Gentiles. Yet I have seen Protestants who write “G-d” and will not even use the English word. Is this just a popular spirituality or a doctrinal belief for some?
Anyone have any personal rules you follow? Does anyone belong to a Church that has a doctrine on this subject?
