Commentary: Religiosity

by Guy LaMar

The LORD God established the languages that we speak.

The LORD God understands our speaking languages.

Along with our mental thoughts. The LORD God – the family of God, which at this moment consists of God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ – knows what one means and is saying when they speak.

A person with any speech impediments is just as clear to the Eternal our God as a proficient speaker.

So do not think for one second that grabbing hold of Hebrew names in this modern 21st century or even a 3000-year-old ancient language will somehow be more righteous and holy.

In truth, acknowledgment of how one says the name of God in the Hebrew language has no record going back some 5,000 years ago. And, even 3,000 years ago only has a guesstimate. 

In truth, the LORD God knows all languages – even in this 21st century. The LORD God established all languages. Our heavenly Father and our Lord Jesus Christ know who is calling upon Them – in any language!

Deaf people are heard by the LORD God as loud and boisterous as anyone else.

So, these “sacred name” groups are nothing more than people who are trying to limit the Eternal our God’s divine capabilities and awesome power.

This new movement of these “sacred name” groups is nothing more than a bunch of religiosity on steroids – so to speak. It’s simply a case of people trying to be too religious. And calling themselves “righteous” because of the sounds made from their mouth.

It is foolish trying to limit the Eternal Creator God in Their awesome power in understanding all languages.

It’s like some men get a sense of religiosity over growing their beards long. In the ’40s and ’50s among men, which was perhaps the era of the most disciplined of people in modern history, in American society, scruffy beards were looked upon as a person lacking proper grooming discipline due to laziness.

But now, in this modern era of religiosity and showy appearance, anything goes – including unkept and scruffy beards on men. It’s all a bunch of nonsense. Where men have long scruffy beards and women cut their hair short – such as a pixie cut.

I grow a beard from time to time, but it is not a religious statement by any means.

It’s when a person makes long scruffy beards a religious statement that it becomes just silly.

It’s like the Orthodox Jewish men growing their beards long. They grow these silly beards, and they grow their payots (sideburns) extra long. Or the Hasidic Jewish men wearing their black Russian-looking shtreimel and a tallit. And, like the Catholics, they pray their repetitive prayers.

God’s living word teaches us that we are not supposed to wear a covering – a hat – when we are speaking with the LORD God. Notice –

“Every man who has a covering on his head when he is praying or prophesying puts his Head [the Lord Jesus Christ] to shame” – 1 Corinthians 11:4, NET.

Now, that is not to say that the LORD God can’t hear our prayer because we might have a hat upon our heads. But, it is a sign of DISRESPECT to the Lord our God – the living Jesus Christ!

Sadly, these modern-day so-called Christians that practice Judeo-Christianity are nothing more than modern-day Pharisees or Sadducees.

They are bastardizing the LORD God’s true religion.


The name of His Son and our Elder Brother is JESUS. This is the holy name that the Anglo-Saxon-speaking peoples use to identify the living Son of God, our Savior, the Christ.

Let us always STAY WITH THE TRUNK OF THE TREE! Don’t go out on limbs or twigs. Keep the simplicity of Christ our main focus in life. Keep JESUS CHRIST the center point of all things in your life! He is the Director. He is the Producer. He is the Author. He is the Beginning and Finisher of our faith. He is the All of Everything to true Christians.

True Christians do not limit the Eternal God to words, languages, or phrases.

Yet sadly, a large majority of our peoples in this world continue to dress or speak in a certain way in order to make themselves appear more righteous and showy.

The LORD God is the Alpha and Omega of our religion. The LORD God is at the heart of our mindset, our thinking, and our activities as to whether we are on the correct path or not.

Too often a good and faithful servant of the LORD our God can get off-track by becoming overly religious. And, when they become overly religious they begin to lose sight of the MOST IMPORTANT thing – true love for others. They become cynical, and judgmental and begin attacking at every opportunity others who might lack and understand things that they think one should.


Do not ever try and cram our religion down other people’s throats.

Do not try to win people over with “good arguments,” we should win others over with our good examples. Be nurturing, loving, uplifting, kind, and understanding – instead of bashing them over the head for something they cannot know.

This is the main reason why I refuse to “get in line” with these worldly churches in this present evil age.

They busy themselves bashing people over the head with their judgmental Louisville Slugger instead of having true compassion, mercy, and concern for them.

Now, this doesn’t mean that we should be a pushover.

True Christians should have a great amount of discipline and self-control. It’s vitally important that discipline is on self, and not trying to be pushy upon others.

Be always THANKFUL and ACKNOWLEDGE the glorious blessings that the LORD God has called you!

We must have pity, mercy, and concern for all others.

Yet, it is only God THE FATHER, who calls people unto His living Word, Truth, and Plan.

Our Christian duty in part with this calling is that we are to be a light unto the world. Which means to let our light shine brightly through good examples, good words, and by how we represent ourselves to others.

God’s living word clearly teaches us that we are to be kind in our response to being asked – “What do you believe!?”

We should not be prideful, bombastic, or authoritative towards others who do not understand what we have been blessed to understand. There is no value in insulting others and attacking others for their lack of understanding. In fact, it only makes us a religious snob if we attack others as though we know something they don’t by holding it over their heads. Religious snobs will NEVER win people over to the living Word of God, the Truth of God, and the Plan of God.

Let us always LOOK TO JESUS!

Let us always look to how He handled others and He presented TRUTH to others.

The “religious snobs” tend to be scared to be around others due to their fear. Their fear that other people will influence their group away from them.

But, if you are a good steward and on guard, then you will prevent such a thing in a kind and respectful manner. And will certainly help the one you believe is trying to influence others away to find the true Light of Christ.

Remember, our Lord Jesus Christ kept company with prostitutes, criminals, and demon-possessed individuals, and certainly came across homosexuals. In truth, every person that was ever around Him was a sinner!

But, pay close attention to how He handled people. It all boils down to… L O V E!!!!! Deep compassion and concern for others! Kindness.

And, all the fruits of the Spirit were on full display within JESUS! And His Way is the way we are seeking to be!

Showing to all mankind ─ love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

This is where our mindset IS TO BE! □

Additional Commentaries

Becoming a GodThe reason that I bring this up is that I too in my youth thought this was a mighty bold statement. “Oh,” I would think, “the audacity! The unmitigated gall!” Since that time, I have grown substantially in the loving grace and knowledge of the Eternal God. [...]
Evil Mock's God's TruthWe must be careful with whom we share God's living truth. Evil will mock and insult YOU along with God's truth!
Let NOTHING Get In the Way of Jesus! - THE point is: that it is a struggle to NOT allow the snares of this world - things that are material - to get in the way of JESUS!
