comment What are the different names of God in the Bible and what do they mean?
@ Caleb. Will you restrain your child from calling your name because the child cannot describe your name perfectly? I know you wont do that, instead you will be happy for that because the child recognizes you. Same with Jehovah, he is happy for the people recognizing, hollowing his name everyday, not constraint by traditional misconceptions about the renditions of his name.

@ Caleb. You said you are "scripting language connoisseur, regular expression aficionado, network geek, general lover of Linux and a frequent contributor to open source software." Which of those "names" you write in a paper that ask of your name, or do you put there "Caleb Maclenan"? Its the same with God and his personal name is Jehovah, though he has many titles like "Elohim" or "Adonai." but his personal name is Jehovah.

@dleyva3. Richard also used the Bible, does this mean that the Bible is contradicting itself?

comment How do we know Jesus is God incarnate?
@ new wings. If I am a king and I sent my representative to save you. And my representative said to you "I and the king are one." Would it be logical to think that by saying those words it means that I and my representative is the same? Who would be the greater savior is it I the king or my representative?

"The Lord of the heavens' armies" not a proper name its a title like "General of the Fifth Army Division" or 'King of Rock and Roll'. But Jehovah is God's proper name like Douglas McArthur or Elvis Presley.

comment Biblical basis for the doctrine of the Trinity
Second, the holy spirit is not on the 'left side' or present in the scene in this text or in the other context where in Jesus is seen at the right side of God. But here, it is said that Stephen is filled with the holy spirit, like the other followers filled with holy spirit on day of the Penticost this would conclude that the holy spirit is not a person at all because it is dispersed among the followers. Therefore this does not signify trinity.

comment Biblical basis for the doctrine of the Trinity
´Elo·him' means, not "persons," but "gods." So those who argue that this word implies a Trinity make themselves polytheists, worshipers of more than one God. Why? Because it would mean that there were three gods in the Trinity. But nearly all Trinity supporters reject the view that the Trinity is made up of three separate gods.

comment Biblical basis for the doctrine of the Trinity
The American Journal of Semitic Languages and Literatures says of ´elo·him': "It is almost invariably construed with a singular verbal predicate, and takes a singular adjectival attribute." To illustrate this, the title ´elo·him' appears 35 times by itself in the account of creation, and every time the verb describing what God said and did is singular. (Genesis 1:1-2:4) Thus, that publication concludes: "[´Elo·him'] must rather be explained as an intensive plural, denoting greatness and majesty."

comment Biblical basis for the doctrine of the Trinity
The word ´eloh'ah (god) has two plural forms, namely, ´elo·him' (gods) and ´elo·heh' (gods of). These plural forms generally refer the Father, in which case they are translated in the singular as "God." Do these plural forms indicate a Trinity? No, they do not. In A Dictionary of the Bible, William Smith says: "The fanciful idea that [´elo·him'] referred to the trinity of persons in the Godhead hardly finds now a supporter among scholars. It is either what grammarians call the plural of majesty, or it denotes the fullness of divine strength, the sum of the powers displayed by God."
