So At Peace and I were discussing the Word 'Christ' Because of an attack from the enemy, it disappeared. So we'll try again.
The word Christ is used so often by Christians that it has become most commonly, in my opinion, understood to be His last name...It's not.
The word is actually one of the few words not translated by the translators, I'm not even going to try to guess why. It has no meaning in English. Its a Greek word, like the word Baptize. No meaning in English, at the time of the publishing of the bible at least. You baptize your donut in coffee..LOL Baptize means 'to dip , orsubmerge' Anyway... Christ.
The most common definition of 'Christ' is 'anointed' but that is so incomplete it's pathetic. The word means "The anointed One and His anointing" Jesus ...the anointed One and His anointing. When we talk about Christ Jesus we are most often referring to the anointing of Jesus wherewith we are also anointed. We are anointed or authorized with the SAME authority that Jesus is given. We refer to Jesus Christ we are referring to the fact that He is the ones sent and authorized to be savior of mankind, the healer, the deliverer and so on.
Your turn.
 
When I first started following God I called him Yahweh and Jesus Yahashua. That was almost a year ago, and through time I started to realize that it doesn't matter what we call him. Simply because there's nothing in the Bible that says " You need to call me this!", so I belive you can call him Bob if you like. So when people ask you who you follow, you can give them the things he taught and they can say oh Jesus! Or whatever, but you just call him something differet although your talikng about the same person through what they said/taught. I think what's most important when it comes to following God is our sincerity! How much with we strive to practice the things he taught? Will we love others no matter who they are, and will we listen to God when he tells us we're wrong?

Why would you not call him by His name? I mean, how would you feel if people called you 'Bingo' regardless of your real name?

Yes I agree I think it is a form of reverence when we call him by his name.

Giving reverence to the Lord is important and that would include calling him by his name or title IMO. when I pray I go on my hands and knees with my head on the ground for reverence of the Lord. At one time I thought that was not needed but it has gotten me closer to God I can tell you that. I think you will change on this thought process at sometime. We are taught reverence for the Lord is a must

Acts 4:12; "And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved."

Matt 1:23; "BEHOLD, THE VIRGIN SHALL BE WITH CHILD AND SHALL BEAR A SON, AND THEY SHALL CALL HIS NAME IMMANUEL," which translated means, "GOD WITH US."
 
I believe that Christ means "anointed one", but I also believe that reverence for the Lord is necessary, but I also believe that God will not send us to hell just for the fact that we don't use the right name for Jesus. Shoot me down if need be, but I am a Bible believing Christian and this is what I believe.
