There may be two testaments, but there is only one God—the God of majesty and intimacy, the God who, in the words of our communion liturgy, "is close to us as breathing and distant at the farthest star."
Does the Divine actually talk to us ... maybe, even, using Democratic discourse or Republican rhetoric? Why is the vocabulary of some theologies peaceful and gracious, while others tend to be threatening and damning? What place do our holy books have in editorializing the language and logos of who and what we worship? Is there gender within (and without) spiritual speech? Whether focused on the hereafter or more concerned, instead, with today and tomorrow, the entrenched forces of organized religion undeniably are being challenged by a dynamic new testament. Voices previously unheard now relay their messages instantly across time and space, reaching and rallying an audience that's both receptive and responsive. Perhaps God is still speaking and trying to tell us something. What might that be? That the good news shared through social media echoes the progressive message of Jesus about grace, love, peace, compassion, inclusion, and social justice for all. A new dispensation, perhaps? It's the Gospel According to Facebook!
To each of us who believe in God, God’s names, Jehovah, Messiah and Jesus, are all so kind and we are full of reverence for them. Jehovah had said, “...this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial to all generations.” (Exo 3:15) The Bible also records, “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Act 4:12) Who can unlock the mystery of God’s name?
“Some say that God’s name does not change. Then why did the name of Jehovah change to Jesus? It had been said that Messiah would come, so why did one named Jesus come instead? How could God’s name change? Aren’t these the works God did long ago? Do you really think God could not carry out a new work today?” from The Word Appears in the Flesh
