Is the argument that we should not use the name Jehovah because bad pronunciation may offend God ?

Used to prevent us from knowing God & having a personal relationship with some one we can name harder ?
Is it an argument designed so we don't get to know God as a personality & reinforce the false doctrine of the trinity ?
Will God really punish us for mispronunciation ?

No, that's not the argument. Repeat questions are easy!

In the Divine Name brochure, on page 7, under the heading "How is God's Name Pronounced?" the WTS admits:

"The truth is, nobody knows for sure how the name of God was originally pronounced...Thus it is evident that the original pronunciation of God's name is no longer known. Nor is it really important. If it were, then God himself would have made sure that it was preserved for us to use. The important thing is to use God's name according to its conventional pronunciation in our own language."

What are they doing here? They're saying, "We don't know what God's name is. We don't know the specific pronunciation. So, what we should do is just use whatever is conventional in our own language. And because the word "Jehovah" is more popular in the English than something like "Yahweh," Jehovah's Witnesses use the name "Jehovah."

In the right-hand (pink) sidebar on the same page, there are 17 different possible pronunciations of the Tetragrammaton. Twelve of them start with the letter "J," while only five of them start with the letter "Y." The interesting thing is all twelve of the examples given that start with the letter "J" come from German sources. Why is that important? The German "J" is actually pronounced as a "Y!" So, you've got all these examples with a "J" and only 5 with a "Y," which seems to subtly suggest that we should be pronoucing God's name with a "J" instead of a "Y," except that in German all these are pronounced with a "Y."

So HERE'S the argument: If we don't know what the pronunciation of God's name is, much less the spelling, why should we insist on a specific name in the English? That makes no sense to me.

On page 11 of the Divine Name brochure are these quotes: "German professor Gustav Friedrich Oehler...concluded, 'From this point onward I use the word Jehovah, because, as a matter of fact, this name has now become more naturalized in our vocabulary, and cannot be supplanted.'"

"Jesuit scholar Paul Jouon states: 'In our translations, instead of the (hypothetical) form, Yahweh, we have used the form Jehovah..."

Oehler was a Lutheran pastor and seminary professor. Jouon was a Jesuit priest. These are quotes giving authority as to why we should use the name Jehovah. So we should use the name Jehovah because these "apostate" priests tell us to?

They continue, "Franz Schubert composed the music for the lyric entitled 'The Almightiness,' written by Johann Ladislav Pyrker, in which the name Jehovah appears twice. It is also used at the end of the last scene of Verdi's opera, 'Nabucco.'" An opera--now THAT's an authoritative source for theology.

Page 20: "If reading 'Yahweh' instead of "LORD" retains the 'flavor of the original text,' why did the translators not use 'Yahweh' in their translation? Why did they, in their own words, 'substitute' the word 'LORD' for God's name and thus mask the flavor of the original text?"

So Yahweh should be used; why aren't they using Yahweh? They're using some sort of substitute, and they're taking away the original flavor of the Hebrew. Isn't that the same thing the WTS is doing? Can you restore an original with a substitute? No, you cannot restore it. You can only replace it. And if the Watchtower is so concerned with the "flavor" of the original text, then why are THEY substituting English for Hebrew? Why are they holding on to the English pronunciation? BTW, "Jehovah" is an English pronunciation of a German spelled word which is based off the Latin. So that's like three generations removed from what God's name is supposed to be. It doesn't make any sense for them to insist on the word Jehovah while ignoring what it really means for God to have a name.

Bottom line, I don't like being accused of "neglecting God's name" simply because I don't use the Watchtower Society's preferred pronunciation! I also believe that when the Bible refers to God's "name," it is speaking of His nature--His divine attributes that are unique to Almighty God, whom I respectfully call Abba, Father.
