Yes, the Hebrew word gad means fortune. But we're not speaking Hebrew, we're speaking english. In English, God is Elohim.

Do you realize what you're actually doing? You are giving both glory and power to an idol that doesn't even exist and is in fact powerless. Paul gave us some important lessons in 1 Corinthians chapters 8 and 10 about this in regards to food sacrificed to idols. Search those Scriptures with a heart willing to recieve and you may be surprised what you learn. Only a weak conscious would stumble at these supposed language problems. There is however no power in the sound of the lips, only the meaning and faith behind those sounds in the language/dialect you happen to be speaking (so it would be your faith causing you to stumble, not the sound of the word). Gad in English is fortune. Elohim in English is God. There is no issue that the English word God and the Hebrew word Gad are pronounced the same. If it was an issue, then you would have to stop saying Elohim as well since it was also used and applied to a Canaanite deity of light. Or even worse, in Aramaic, Alaha was a word used and called upon to worship many sun gods. The linguistics simply do not support this silly theology, nor do they bear even a single shred of fruit for the Kingdom. On the contrary, Yeshua rebukes this kind of behavior in the religious establishments many times, and we can expect to be rebuked ourselves come judgment day if we don't get our act together. Names in semitic languages are used to describe a character, not merely to address them as a person. King of Kings and Lord of Lords would be one such example of a name, although in English we would call those titles. In Hebrew however there is no such thing as a title, only names. Perhaps this article by Tim Hegg may help you - <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=""> ... %201-3.pdf</a><!-- m -->
