In A.A.’s basic text, Alcoholics Anonymous, Alcoholics Anonymous Cofounder referred to Yahweh’s title as “Creator” twelve times. 4th ed., 13, 25, 28, 56, 68, 72, 75, 76, 80, 83, 158, 161. Bill spoke frequently about establishing a relationship with the Creator and even addressed his suggested Seventh Step prayer to “My Creator.” King James Version biblical references to Yahweh, the Creator can be found in Genesis 1:1; Ecclesiastes 12:1; Isaiah 43:15; Romans 1:24; and 1 Peter 4:19.
