The Term God

The Term God

The English word god is generic and can be applied to any deity but it is not the only term that can be used correctly. Every language has it's own word that can be translated into English as god.

French is Dieu
Bosnian is Bog
German is Gott
Italian is Dio
Arabic is Allah
Greek is Theos
Finnish is Jumala

The list goes on and on and no matter what language is used the idea is the same. There are many religions that have many "gods" and three religions that claim only one god.

Jewish, Christian, and Islam all worship the same God that Abraham worshiped.
