A rose is a rose, by any other name. So it is with God, who by any other name is still the Supreme Universal Consciousness, and the Eternal, Infinite, Omnipresent Great Spirit-Parent who loves us all.

About the song
The "holy wars" in the world are not merely about land, territory and resources. They are about differing concepts of God, different names for God, and different opinions about what the will of God is. But God wants us to love one another, and treat all others as we would want to be treated if we were them. That's the Universal Divine Imperative.
Lyrics
WHY FIGHT OVER A NAME?

Some people tell you they have found the way,
But I learned all about what they have to say.
And even though I know when I should just shut my mouth,
I gotta say that crusade they're on is only goin' south.

I think that after all is said and done,
We will be one for all, and all for one.
To just one truth do many faiths plead.
To just one way do many paths lead.

Now lots of people say that they know God's name,
But to me they all just speak of the same,
Of the Great Spirit-Parent who loves us all.
Why fight over a name? Why don't we tear down that wall?

Now if you are one of those who are seeking to find,
The way to true love, and to ease your mind,
You can find your own path and you are free to choose,
They can lead to the same place, you've got nothin' to lose.

Seek and you shall find, you have your own way,
And for that way, you will not have to pay.
But if on the way you buy the words that others have learned,
You pay for all that midnight oil that you burned.

Yes, lots of people say they know God's name,
But to me they all just speak of the same,
Of the Great Spirit-Parent who loves us all.
Why fight over a name? We don't we tear down that wall?
