Are you sure? I'd expect it were pronounced /xOt/, namely a fricative g and a short 'o' vowel, something like in English 'call'.

Just to add to Lyddi's post about God in Serbian:

Господ/Gospod - The Lord
Отац/Otac - Father(In a phrase: 'Оче наш'- 'Our Father')
Творац/Tvorac (a bit more poetic form of the word 'Стваралац/Stvaralac') - The Creator

and Jesus is often referred to as 'Син божији/Sin božiji' - the Son of God

Yup, Afrikaans God is pronounced with that guttural g (Loch in scotland, Bach in german) followed by the English call sound and the d. If you pronounced it like 'goat', it would be written goud which means Gold, not God.
