In the Hebrew Bible, "Yahweh" is the personal name of The Creator.
The NEW JERUSALEM BIBLE uses the name "Yahweh" throughout the Old Testament.

The name "Yahweh" comes from Exodus, where God introduces himself as "I am that I am."

Considered by many Protestant Christians to be a personal god. (That is, a god who desires to be a part of our every day lives.)

Both a god of love, and a god of justice. Some like to romanticize God by limiting Him to his loving side, while others use God's justice as an excuse to oppress people. But a perfect God must love deeply, and also hate injustice.

God promises that every evil act will be punished, if not in this life than in the next. But there is an escape from this.

Some believe that being a good person will get you into heaven, but this this merit system is flawed. Certain individuals like Mother Teresa and Hitler could be easily placed on one side or another, but what about the ones in between?

Wouldn't it suck to be the guy standing right behind where the line was cut off?

"But that guy ahead of me isn't much better than me! We're practically equals!"

"True, but we have to draw a line somewhere... Sorry!"

God doesn't go by the credit-merit system of salvation. Instead, "All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God."

God says that if you want to spend all of eternity with Him, simply tell Him you're sorry for everything you've done wrong, and to love Him with Your life. Know Him personally, and you will enter.

Whether you believe in Him or not, THIS is the God of the Bible. Take it or leave it.
Matthew 25:1-13: "At that time the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish and five were wise. The foolish ones took their lamps but did not take any oil with them. The wise, however, took oil in jars along with their lamps. The bridegroom was a long time in coming, and they all became drowsy and fell asleep.

"At midnight the cry rang out: 'Here's the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!'

"Then all the virgins woke up and trimmed their lamps. The foolish ones said to the wise, 'Give us some of your oil; our lamps are going out.'

" 'No,' they replied, 'there may not be enough for both us and you. Instead, go to those who sell oil and buy some for yourselves.'

"But while they were on their way to buy the oil, the bridegroom arrived. The virgins who were ready went in with him to the wedding banquet. And the door was shut.

"Later the others also came. 'Sir! Sir!' they said. 'Open the door for us!'

"But he replied, 'I tell you the truth, I don't know you.' "

English version of the Hebrew word YHWH, which translates into 'I am'. Jews refer to their God as Yahweh, is the same god that Christians and Muslims believe in.

If you are writing the Torah, and misspell Yahweh, the Torah needs to be ceremoniously buried.

The traditional Hebrew name for the Judeo-Christian god from the Jewish Torah and the Old Testament of the Christian bible.

While superficially glorified by scripture, he can be characterized by his actions as one of the most supremely douchy characters in all of western literature and theology. A few of his more characteristic actions were the demand for genocide by his followers, the demand for his followers to kill their own children, the encouragement of slavery and subjugation of women, the demand that his followers must simultaneously love and fear him, and psychotic bets made with the devil (whom he never could be bothered to kill) at the expense of his creations. Once, in a dick move of the highest order, he murdered the entire population of the earth with a massive flood because he was pissed off at them for being exactly the way he made them. It should also be noted that while supposedly omnipotent, the character demonstrates an extremely neurotic personality (leading some theologians to conclude he had a Jewish mother). This personality can be demonstrated by his obsession with the worship and adoration of others. Today, one might think it slightly pathetic for a creator to seek validation of his own superiority from his creations, but apparently this idea never occurred to him (despite his theoretically infinite intelligence and wisdom). For all of these reasons and more we can think of him simply as a dick hole of (quite literally) biblical proportions.
Praying man: "Blessed God, full of Grace"...
Heckler: "What God you praying to there friend? Wouldn't happen to be Yahweh, would it?"
Praying man: "Yeah, do you mind?"
Heckler: "No, all the same to me. But you do know he is a mass-murdering psychotic dictator, right?"
Praying Man: "That's not true, he loves us!"
Heckler: "Like a rapist loves his victims maybe..."

According to Christians and Jews, the ruler of the universe. Probably from Sumerian ''î-âh'', "I create".
I am a Christian and I believe in Yahweh, I believe that he is the one true god, and I encourage you to, as well. But don't be offended.
