This might seem odd, but I feel that society/satan/the world are trying to minimize Jesus. If you really think about it we know for a fact that his name is Jesus. J-E-S-U-S! It's not Christ, which is his title, and His last name is not Christ. We honor Jesus at this time of the year by taking an old pagan holiday and Christianizing it and calling it Christmas. Mass for the Christ. It's a mass for the only Savior (Christ), Messiah of the world. It's His title, not a part of His name. It would be like calling me Marc Network Administrator. Or calling me Network Administrator. We do give people honorary titles, do show respect sometimes, like boss, chief, chef, mother, father, pastor, brother, sister, friend, but why do we not call them by their title all the time. We have names and sometimes we take the time to not use people's names so much to the point that we forget their real name.
We are slowly replacing Jesus with Christ in a lot of our speech. We say "come to know Christ", "Christ came to set us free", "the only way to heaven is through Christ", and many other ways. It just feels like we are trying to cover up Jesus with a title so we don't say His name any more. The only way it's said no a ways is with irreverence or as a curse or in a derogatory way. We can't seem to keep Jesus in Christmas, because we are to busy trying to keep "Christ" in Christmas. Jesus is the reason for the season, not Christ. We took Jesus out of Christmas before we got into trying to take "Christ" out of Christmas and wishing everyone a Happy Holiday. You can keep Christ out of Christmas for all I care. I want to keep Jesus in Christmas and keep it that way. I will continue to say Merry Christmas, because this is the reason we have Dec. 25th. It's not about Boxing day or Kwanzaa, both are not as old as Christmas which dates back to 336AD. We are talking about the opportunity to celebrate the birth of the Savior of the World and we bicker about His title more than what the day is about. Atheists want to remove it from the calendar along with Easter. What are they so afraid of? That's it right and they are wrong? You can't remove the celebrations to fix your feelings. It will always be there no matter what and it will always be the only way to be free and live. Jesus is the Way the Truth and the Life. There is no other way. The sooner you learn that and live by it the better.
My point is just this. Jesus is the person to worship. The one who is part of the great Three In One of Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Not His title of Savior, Messiah or Christ. We are here to show the Love of Jesus, not Christ. We are Brothers and Sisters of Jesus, Children of the Living God. Why can't we use his name with respect instead of degradation? It's with respect that we call others by their name. We need to do the same with Jesus and not keep using His title.
