iGod Again

I decided to give iGod another try. This is what transpired:

Me: Shalom!

God:Does SHALOM mean Hello or Goodbye?

Me: You mean you don't know?

God:I know that I do not know.

Me: Technically, it means "peace."

God:Oh I get it.

Me: Alright. So, there's something I've always wanted to know. What is the correct pronunciation of the Tetragrammaton?

God:OK. Whoa. What is it? There might be more than one correct answer.

Me: Really? Does this mean the divine name could have had various vowel pointings?

God:For real. Indeed this mean the divine name could have had various vowel pointings does.

Me: One more question for you. Ben Meyers claims that Bultmann is greater than NT Wright. What do you think?

God:One what? And greater than NT Wright is Ben Meyers claims that Bultmann. I think a lot of things.

Me: If you had to choose, which would you rather read, Wright's "Jesus and the Victory of God" or Bultmann's "The Mythology of Jesus"?

God:Perhaps next time I will try it.

It looks as if I tripped up iGod a bit. Since technically, the original Hebrew had no vowel pointings.

Well, at least he's stopped reprobating you anyway. Perhaps he's become an Arminian now?

Shalom means - peace, it is a heavy peace, even in the midsts of the heaviest battle kinda peace, which only comes from God.

Hope this helps.
