Thank you for telling us your name. Now I could call you my brother, only when I use that name. You are made my brother not when you are ‘berecha,’ but as you are P.T. Varghese. Using our names, our Lord Jesus Christ made us brothers by being adopted into God’s family and gave us the right to be called “children of God.” That is why I am using my name and not a pseudonym.
I personally do not object to people using pseudonym on this thread, because it is allowed by the owners of this website. The webmaster also requires, as we all agreed to, that we should avoid personal and assembly matters on this forum. When the right to use pseudonym is upheld as a right and discussion of personal and assembly matters are treated as common occurrences, then I have difficulty. When that happens, I respond and question the validity of observing one behavior as the right and the other as an acceptable behavior of birthright. That has the appearance of lawlessness.
Since you brought the books in the Bible to justify using pseudonym on this Forum, let me write the following. The real author of all the books in the Bible is God. It is God’s word. The immediate author is the Holy Spirit who inspired the human authors to write them. The human authors were the tools in God’s hand. When we write with a pen, we do not specify the pen. If we use a computer, we do not specify the type of computer, either. Having said that, please allow me to ask you one question and that is pertaining to the use of pseudonym. Did any writer of the books in the Bible that you referred to use a pseudonym? If not, your logic in justifying the use of pseudonym is not valid. If they did, then you have a point and I have none. When John wrote the Gospel, he indicated that it was written by the one whom the Lord loved. He did not use a pseudonym, either.
