God is not God's name.

"God" is what God is.

"Human being" is not your name, "Human being" is what you are.

I don't expect you to understand.

To answer your question, I refer you to Proverbs 30: 4-6

Who has gone up to heaven and come down?
Whose hands have gathered up the wind?
Who has wrapped up the waters in a cloak?
Who has established all the ends of the earth?
What is his name, and what is the name of his son?
Surely you know!

Every word of God is flawless; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him.
Do not add to his words, or he will rebuke you and prove you a liar.

So if I called you "Yellow Trash" that's not an insult, right?
What if I called Catcher "Brown Trash" and then claimed that's ok because it's his middle name...?
Gimme a break, River. "White Trash" is a racist insult that your racist buddy Catcher used.
It's his words, let's see if he owns up to them.
Why is white trash a racist insult?

And what's brown trash all about?

White Trash was never my label, that's the label your racist friend Catcher gave me.
No matter how you cut it, calling someone white trash is a racist remark. I can't believe that you're defending him.
You still haven't explained why it's racist.

Correct. Only we humans cannot "copy" God and cannot "do the same thing" as God.
The ESV is an incorrect translation. It should read "Follow God's example, therefore, as dearly loved children."
Why do you think it is incorrect?

Others will say it is actually more accurate.

http://evangelicalbible.com/why.htm

The English Standard Version (ESV), in contrast to most modern translations, is not entirely "new." The ESV is the product of a rich translation legacy which spans some 500 years. The beginning of this heritage was William Tyndale's New Testament (1526). The starting point for the ESV was the 1971 Revised Standard Version (RSV). Over 90 percent of the RSV is retained in the ESV. The RSV was regarded by many as the best modern translation in terms of precision and literary elegance.

The ESV improves upon the RSV in 3 important ways.

(I will let you read for yourself the 3 ways they claim it is improved.)

Summary (back to the article)

The ESV is a grand "improvement" upon centuries of English Bible translations. With a zeal for faithfulness to the original text, and a desire for traditional literary excellence, the ESV is the best modern translation in the English language. We have attempted to explain why these qualities are essential to Bible translation.

An "essentially literal" translation attempts to make the original biblical languages as transparent as possible to the reader. It gives the reader the best view of the original wording of the biblical writers. The focus of the "essentially literal" translation is on word-for-word precision. On the other end of the translation spectrum, are versions which attempt to translate the ideas of the biblical authors. These are often characterized as thought-for-thought translations. Most translations fall somewhere within this continuum. It is true that less literal translations may be more "readable," but often at the expense of accuracy and intended cross reference. The ESV is a superb choice for those who hold transparency to the original text, as a premium for an excellent translation.

I guess it is no wonder that I am no longer a Christian...I was raised on the KJV...I hear it is no longer considered the "true word of God"...or something like that.

I think it's a less reiable translation for reasons like theone we're discussing. The ESV mistranslates it to "immitate" when it should be "follow".

There are a lot of errors, human errors, in the ESV.

The KJV is a medieval translation, written by medieval minds. It's extremely crude and outdated.

it's not The Word of God that's messed up, it's simple human error.
