Oh, probably for the same reasons others add it in where it isn't called for in the original.
We become like that to which we are devoted. - Choose wisely.

Because GAWD is a fictional creation that has been created by man?

I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.

Not likely, God's 10 commandments raise the bar of civility higher than man is inclined to, our human nature is to take the course of least resistance, which got us here;
"But know this, that in the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here. 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, self-assuming, haughty, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, disloyal, 3 having no natural affection, not open to any agreement, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, without love of goodness, 4 betrayers, headstrong, puffed up [with pride], lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godly devotion but proving false to its power; and from these turn away. 6 For from these arise those men who slyly work their way into households and lead as their captives weak women loaded down with sins, led by various desires, 7 always learning and yet never able to come to an accurate knowledge of truth." 2Ti3:1

I've never before heard such an original statement. May I get your autograph?

I read somewhere one time that the NIV is from the same publisher as the modern satanic bible...
Please, not again

It's not a conspiracy and it's not a slight against God... not that you were suggesting it.
I am wondering why in the world you would post this on GLP.

It really very simple. We know who Adoni, El Shaddai, YHWH, etc... are, so it's a matter of simplification. If you look at it like this, let's say someone with no idea about the bible at all, picks it up and sees all these different names God gives to himself, to describe different aspects of his character, or different aspects of his relationship to his people, they might misunderstand and think there are many gods.
I think it is fine to say "Lord", etc... as long as a note is present explaining what was said in the Hebrew.

Again, why in the world did you post this on GLP?
Trying to start a pointless controversy?

If so, shame on you.
