The English word for God has become a source of confusion for Christians since at least the Anglo-Saxon era. Websters New Collegiate Dictionary says that the origin of the word god comes from a Germanic word gad, pronounced as gohdt. English belongs to the Indo-European family of languages, which consists of about 100 related tongues, all descended from prehistoric language of a pastoral, bronze working, horse breeding people, the Aryans, who inhabited the steppes of Central Asia about 4500 B.C. Scholars refer to their language at this stage as proto-Indo-European, or simply Indo-European.
