RE: What's the True Name of God?
Sarah, I asked you if you believe what the Scriptures say in 1 Tim 3:16, and 1 John 5:7 and that they are a true record as given by God, or do you believe they are corrupt?
You said, " We don't have the original documents. The scribes are known to have "harmonized" the texts and things of that nature. I believe that truth is in the word."
Which scribes would that be Sarah? The translators of the NT? the scribes from the OT? What you are saying still is that you deny those verses as being of God. That means you deny the Word of God. Because here's the thing. God said, that all scripture is given by inspiration of God.
When Jesus walked the earth He was constantly showing fufillment of the prophecies of the OT by quoting them. That means they had to be viewed by Him as reliable and true. If we cannot trust the Word of God, we have no Sword of the Spirit to use do we? Where's the record of what we know as God's Word that was translated from what God provided, if we cannot trust the Scriptures? And what Word are we to hide in our hearts so we don't sin against God, if it cannot be trusted to not be corrupted? Which verses can we say are good, and which are bad? And who gets to decide that Sarah? You?
Mat 4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
Psa 119:11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.
Rom 10:16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report? 17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
When the record of the NT was being formed, what did Luke and others write?
Luke 1:1-4 Forasmuch as many have taken in hand to set forth in order a declaration of those things which are most surely believed among us, 2. Even as they delivered them unto us, which from the beginning were eyewitnesses, and ministers of the word; 3. It seemed good to me also, having had perfect understanding of all things from the very first, to write unto thee in order, most excellent Theophilus, 4. That thou mightest know the certainty of those things, wherein thou hast been instructed.
Joh 20:31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.
2Pe 3:15 And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;
2Pe 3:16 As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.
If you do a search for 'record' in KJV you will see the reason we know God protected His Word in both the OT and NT was because it is the record of the eye witnesses of Christ and all that transpired with Him and then the record of the apostles and their activities and teachings for the foundation of the church that we needed to learn.

3John 1:4 I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.
Isaiah 40:31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
