comment Is lust sometimes not sinful?
It would be helpful to reference specifically what verse you're quoting. It's not even clear if your quotation is a paraphrase, since it doesn't seem like a traditional or popular translation. Also, it might be better to be more direct in your answers instead of streaming rhetorical questions. Finally, an excellent answer would include input from multiple passages in the Bible, if such passages exist. Are there other passages about lust or sin that would help answer this question?

comment Isn't “Jehovah-Jireh” (and other such names) just the name of a place?
@davidbrainerd, That's kind of funny, but it could be that the subject changes in the middle of Jer 23:6, no? I wonder if it's just as vague in the original language as in English. Could be a good question for Biblical Hermeneutics.

@MattGutting, It's very helpful to have that context, thanks. What about Almighty God or Most High God as other names? Have you run into those?

@FMS, Yes, that's apparent, but Matt asked about denominations as well.

The title has been aptly amended to improve the question. Asking for a specific denominational source may hinder ones ability to answer.

comment What is the biblical basis for why the sending of the Holy Spirit was necessary?
I see. but I still cast doubt on the premise of your question. I don't think it's necessary for a denomination to be specified when answering this question.

@MattGutting, I think asking about the biblical basis is key to this question. There's nothing wrong with having differing answers.

Mathman, your answer is very satisfying, thanks.

To fredsbend comment, how does that impact names given to places/altars? How can those be properly considered titles/names of God?

comment How do we know Jesus is God incarnate?
@JohannesSchaub-litb. I think I'm applying a similar logic that Jesus employs when he reasons with the teachers in Luke 20:41-44. Paul uses similar techniques in Hebrews 1. This method of discovery and reasoning is essential because the Word is God-breathed, thus "all scripture is profitable for doctrine...."

Thanks, Matt. I guess I'm referring generally to modern Church culture. Have you ever heard someone list the names of God and "Jehovah-Jireh" is one of them? Pastors do this all the time. See the Bible passages I've reference in my question as examples of place-names that are now considered God-names.

I should have been clear that I fully understand that Jehovah is God's name. Your answer doesn't really get at the heart of what I'm asking. If I call my house, God-Dwells-Among-His-People, then God doesn't suddenly get a new name. Yet many Christians talk about these names for places in the Bible and say they are the names to God. Why do they do that? Is it a proper thing to do?
