The Sovereignty of God is not subject to challenge or change by man. It is not for man to validate God but for God to validate man. God remains the Sovereign Ruler irrespective of the views and opinions of man. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. His ways are not the ways of man (Isaiah 55:8-11). His ways are divine, man is carnal. He is holy, man is sinful. He is truthful, man not only loves lies but is full of lies. God is incorruptible but man is full of corruption. God is goodness in itself and man has no opportunity of becoming good in divine context outside of God.
The name of God is not given to God by man. Only God can reveal His name to man and no man can know God for who He is unless God reveals Himself. God knows everything about man. Man without God's own revelation of Himself cannot know man. God revealed Himself as the I AM THAT I AM to Moses. Meaning as the Sovereign Ruler of all, He is who He says He is. We can only know God through His Person. And God as the I AM revealed in Person is Christ. Christ as God revealed in Person is the same yesterday, today and forever:

He is the only way you can put on the incorruptible holiness garment of God and be forever free from the deadly corruption nature of the flesh. Your corrupt arguments against Christ does not change His incorruptible image of life. He remains for eternity to eternity God's body of holiness and righteousness revealed in Person.
"Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.
Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord."
~1 Corinthians 15:50-58
