question name of god

name of God?

Anyhow, my question is this: I've noticed there are certain evangelical Christians who almost constantly write the name of G-d as "YWHW". What is your opinion on this as a Jew? Is this correct practice? If you have time, I would like to know what is proper regarding this habit of some Christians.

Many thanks,

Thanks. One of the names of God in the Bible is called the tetragammaton consisting of 4 Hebrew letters Yud heh vov heh. We oncem knew how to prnounce it-the high Priest did so every yom Kippur but we have no idea how for the last 2000 years. Looks like that ios there effort to sound out or spell out that name of God. Has no meaning for us and we won't attempt to pronounce it.
