In Matthew 12:30, Jesus tells us that there are only two positions of belief in Him: one is either for Him or against Him. Christians see examples of this truth multiplied daily as they practice their faith. This antithesis is lost on many in the "tolerant", "enlightened", secular West, who believe themselves to be "neutral" and "good". But Christ, who never lied (1 Peter 2:22), is ever proving that His word is true: one is either for Him or against Him. Christians can be sure that in this life, there will be persecution (even from those who profess to be ever tolerant), but take heart, Christ has also promised that He has overcome the world!

John 16:33
"I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world."

LORD, MASTER (Heb. ˒āḏôn, ˒aḏōnāy, ba˓al; Aram. mārē˒; Gk. kýrios).† One who possesses and exercises power and authority and to whom respect is thus ascribed. Several Hebrew and Greek terms are represented in English translations by “lord” and “master,” with reference to both human masters as well as God and Christ.

Acts 2:36 - Let all the house of Israel therefore know for certain that God has made him both Lord and Christ, this Jesus whom you crucified.”

CHRIST (Gk. Christos). “Christ” is the New Testament designation of Old Testament “Messiah” (Heb. māšîaḥ “anointed”). Frequently the  Gk. ho Christos of the Gospels is rendered as “the Christ,” meaning that Jesus is the only true Christ (e.g., John 20:31) or the anointed one specifically prophesied in the Old Testament (e.g., 1 Sam. 2:10; Ps. 2:2). 

The two names of Jesus Christ are not really interchangeable. “Jesus” was the name given to the child at his circumcision (Luke 2:21); when the title, Christ, is used, that passage should be understood as a specific reference to the Savior’s office as Mediator, the agent of reconciliation between God and mankind. At times Paul inverts the usual order (“Christ Jesus,” e.g., Rom. 3:24; 8:2, 39).

The appellation “anointed one” derives from the ancient Near Eastern custom of consecrating with oil persons who undertake the responsibilities of a high office. Israel was familiar with this practice during Old Testament times, for prophets, priests, and kings were anointed (e.g., 1 Kgs. 19:16; Ps. 133:2) to confirm that they were officially installed in, and declared competent for, their respective offices. Because these Old Testament figures were anointed for only a short time and discharged their offices imperfectly, Israel anticipated the arrival of the Anointed One, who would not be anointed by men and with oil prepared by human hands, but by God, with the Holy Spirit (Matt. 3:16–17 par. Mark 1:10–11; Luke 3:21–22). For that reason Jesus could testify of himself: “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me …” (Luke 4:18 quoting Isa. 61:1; cf. Acts 10:38). Thus, the name “Christ” connotes not only his sacred commission as Mediator and Redeemer of his people, but also the authority and power through which he was able to complete this mission.

Propinquity and hishtaphel? A bit multi-syllabic, but catchy!

I had Horizon Heating & Cooling perform an annual maintenance on the two AC units at my home. Approximately forty minutes after beginning the work, I received the bill and was just a little surprised at its total of $558. I was charged a $89 service call fee, and another $89 “system tune up” fee. Then among the line items charges were two $20 charges for “ant spray”, two $10 charges for “condensation cleanout”, and two $10 charges for “ring replacements”. After the service, I called several other AC maintenance companies in my area (Jonesboro AC being one of these) and was told that they would not have charged for “ant spray”, and “condensation cleanout”, but that these services would have been included in the “system tune up fee”. I was also told that the two $10 charges for “ring replacements” was high. Additionally, Horizon charged me $100 for two air filter replacements. After realizing I had been over charged for other items, I decided to look online for air filters and found the filters for half of what Horizon was charging. I called Jason at Horizon and informed him of my concern about the charges and that I had called other AC maintenance companies who had told me that the charges looked excessive. Instead of listening to my concern, Jason proceeded to defend all the charges and tell me how “competitively priced” Horizon’s services are. He then tried to deny my cancellation of the $100 replacement air filters, which I had already paid for, but after a week, never received. I really was shocked that Jason was not only unwilling to remove any of these superfluous charges (as per Jonesboro AC) but also that he was trying to deny my being refunded the $100 for the air filters I had already paid for, but which he had not yet delivered a week later. This made me begin to question their billing practices in general and to have concerns about other bills I had received from them. If you use, or have used Horizon in the past, I would be interested to know if they make it part of their billing practice to charge for “ant spray”, “condensation clean out”, “ring replacements” for all their AC maintenance customers (a means of charging an additional $50-$80 on top of their $89 service call and $89 unit tune up fee on all their AC maintenance service).
