If there actually was a god you wouldn't need faith. There is no need for an all powerful god to hide and then let children die from tornadoes and guns. Why would you want to worship something that hides and is in control of everything and lets terrible things happen?

Why would God require us to live by faith? Because we were given freewill. God saw fit to allow us to make our own decisions, and not force us to believe. Why would anyone want it any other way? I for one don't want to be a robot. As for the guns and terrible things question. Same answer. We, as humans, are given great propensity for good and for evil. Unfortunatly often times we choose evil (even the best of people do bad things from time to time). The tornadoes (along with any number of other natural disasters) are a result of our fall and out tainting of the Earth as a whole when Sin was introduced into the world. Not everything happens for a reason. Once we understand that, we can move on to recognize that the fall of man, and in turn the Earth, was Man's doing, and that is what causes terrible things to happen.

“I have recently been examining all the known superstitions of the world, and do not find in our particular superstition [Christianity] one redeeming feature. They are all alike, founded upon fables and mythologies.” Thomas Jefferson

“Man is the religious animal. He is the only religious animal. He is the only animal that has the True Religion – several of them. He is the only animal that loves his neighbor as himself and cuts his throat, if his theology isn’t straight. He has made a graveyard of the globe in trying his honest best to smooth his brother’s path to happiness and heaven.” Mark Twain

<quoted text>I can't say for sure and may be wrong but I think its the English translation of there original names because it was originally written in Aramaic then translated over time in Hebrew and Greek into the KJV we have today
that would make sense where the names came from.

Names do not change. Did Jesus name change? Nope. And what happened to Mary? The single most important woman in the world right?

There is no J in the Hebrew alphabet. J is pronounced with a Y. Jesus= Yesuha...Jehovah = Yahweh.

And yes, why would God make us live by faith? What's the point when he could make us all to worship him anyway and could make all the bad things of the world go away. He gives us "freewill" then tells us he will send us to a firey hell if we don't do what he says. Doesn't sound like freewill to me.

Sounds like you want everything your way.This isn't Burger King.
He let his only son be crucified for your sins. Does that sound fair or is that not enough for you?

Point of information: Did God tell anyone about the fiery hell v. free will directly? Or, consider this, is it a folktale originated and spread by well-meaning humans?
