One thought on “The Name”

  1. “Is the Creator unwilling or willing to be called by the name of God?” I’d suggest that as the Heraclitus quotation would have it, both. To be named Zeus == Deus (or even Dao) allows for men’s contemplation of a Cosmos which is not mechanical, not to be reduced to material, not the blind consequence of an inexplicable singularity (the Big Bang), but rather to offer Life and Love and Evolution at the Center of the Universe. Yet to give a name to God, especially in an historical-cultural context, is to sow confusion and worse as the God-concept is explicated by various religious traditions with all their cultural baggage.
