Christian having huge doubts - need real answers. After researching many religions in attempt to find out where the Bible originated, who decided what would be allowed or not allowed. Concerned that many major religions, that predate Jesus by hundreds - thousands of years, that are not considered Christian. Have "savior" stories nearly identical to Jesus. They all call him different name but birthday is the same. Star located his birth, performed miracles, healed the sick, had 12 disciples, resurrected after death? HELP me if you can.

The Truth War is not a mere wrangling between competing earthly ideologies. It is not simply a camp-aign to refine someone's religious creed or win a denominational spitting contest. It is not a battle of wits over arcane theological fine points. it is not an argument for sport. it is not like a school of debate, staged to see who is more skilled or more clever in the art of argumentation. And its certainly not a game! It is not anything petty, personal, mundane, or ego related. What we are called to defend is no less than "the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints."
Dear sister, doubts are nothing but unchallenge reality, the bible declares the mysteries of the kingdom, are reveal until the children.Here are few things you must understand about the word of God, first thing you must understand is faith unlocked the doors of his words, paul says in corinth that he takes the foolish things to confound the wise, read john chapter 16, and then 1st corinthians chapter 1, then we began and extensive walk of the word together, remember the enemy brings about doubt to eliminated us from understanding our rights in the kingdom.
Name of the Creator As The Father is יהוה "YHWH"
and His Son’s Name is יהוה "YHWH" Note: The Father & Son Name Are The Same! (John 5:43) They Are ONE!
Yahweh - the God of the Israelites, his name being revealed to Moses as four Hebrew consonants (YHWH) called the tetragrammaton. After the Exile (6th century BC), and especially from the 3rd century BC on, Jews ceased to use the name Yahweh for two reasons. As Judaism became a universal religion through its proselytizing in the Greco-Roman world, the more common noun Elohim, meaning “god,” tended to replace Yahweh to demonstrate the universal sovereignty of Israel's God Yahweh over all others. At the same time, the divine name Yahweh was increasingly regarded as too sacred to be uttered; it was thus replaced vocally in the synagogue ritual by the (Jews) Hebrew word Adonai (“My Lord”), which was translated as Kyrios (“Lord”) in the Septuagint, the Greek version of the Old Testament.
The Masoretes, who from about the 6th to the 10th century worked to reproduce the original text of the Hebrew Bible, replaced the vowels of the name (YHWH) Yahweh with the vowel signs of the Hebrew words Adonai or Elohim. Thus, the artificial name Jehovah (YeHoWaH) came into being. Although Christian scholars after the Renaissance and Reformation periods used the term Jehovah for YHWH, in the 19th and 20th centuries biblicalscholars again began to use the form Yahweh. Early Christian writers, such as Clement of Alexandria in the 2nd century, had used a form like Yahweh, and this pronunciation of the (Tetragrammaton) was never really lost. Other Greek transcriptions also indicated that YHWH should be pronounced Yahweh.
The meaning of the personal name of the Israelite God has been variously interpreted. Many scholars believe that the most proper meaning may be “He Brings Into Existence Whatever Exists” (Yahweh-Asher-Yahweh). In I Samuel, God is known by the name Yahweh Teva-?ot, or “He Brings the Hosts Into Existence,” the hosts possibly referring to the heavenly court or to Israel. The personal name of God probably was known long before the time of Moses. The name of Moses' mother was Jochebed (Yokheved), a word based on the name Yahweh. Thus, the tribe of Levi, to which Moses belonged, probably knew the name Yahweh, which originally may have been (in its short form Yo, Yah, or Yahu) a religious invocation of no precise meaning evoked by the mysterious and awesome splendour of the manifestation of the holy.
