    The title God, includes the title Lord.

    The title Lord does not include the title God.

    If our God is God then he must also be our Lord.

    But our Lord is not necessarily our God.

    Lord: a person who has authority, control, or power over others; a master, chief, or ruler.

    Jehovah God has appointed Jesus as our Lord or Master.

    The Lord Jehovah is our God, and according to Jesus, he is the only true God.

    Misquoting 1 Cor 8:4-7 doesn't prove Jesus is God, it only proves Jesus is our Lord.

    Paul emphasizes the fact that only the Father is God.

    "yet for us there is but one God, the Father," whom Paul tells us, is the Creator.

    Jesus as our Lord, didn't create anything but was the channel from which creation came through.

    Water comes through a pipe. The pipe is not the creator of the water, only the channel by which the water arrives.

    Creation comes through Jesus, but Jesus is not the creator of all creation, Jesus is only the channel by which creation comes.

    To strive to use 1 Cor 8:4-7 as proof that Jesus is God, is to blatantly ignore what the verse is really teaching.

    Notice what Paul also writes:

    (1 Corinthians 15:24-28) “24 Next, the end, when he hands over the Kingdom to his God and Father, when he has brought to nothing all government and all authority and power. 25 For he must rule as king until God has put all enemies under his feet. 26 And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing. 27 For God “subjected all things under his feet.” But when he says that ‘all things have been subjected,’ it is evident that this does not include the One who subjected all things to him. 28 But when all things will have been subjected to him, then the Son himself will also subject himself to the One who subjected all things to him, that God may be all things to everyone.”

    We see it is his God and Father, who makes Jesus our Lord

    (1 Corinthians 15:57) “57 But thanks to God, for he gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ!”

    Along with:

    (Romans 15:5, 6) “5 Now may the God who supplies endurance and comfort grant you to have among yourselves the same mental attitude that Christ Jesus had, 6 so that unitedly you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

    (2 Corinthians 1:3) “3 Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, . . .”

    (2 Corinthians 11:31) “31 The God and Father of the Lord Jesus, the One who is to be praised forever, knows I am not lying.”

    (Ephesians 1:3) “3 Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, . . .”

    (Ephesians 1:17) “17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the accurate knowledge of him.”

    Peter also says:

    (1 Peter 1:3) “3 Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, . . .”

    John also teaches us:

    (Revelation 1:5, 6) “5 and from Jesus Christ, “the Faithful Witness,” “the firstborn from the dead,” and “the Ruler of the kings of the earth.” To him who loves us and who set us free from our sins by means of his own blood— 6 and he made us to be a kingdom, priests to his God and Father—yes, to him be the glory and the might forever. Amen.”

    The difference is Jehovah is the only true God who has made Jesus our Lord

    Lords (lower case l) are lesser in status than kings.

    Lords (upper case L) are lesser in status than Gods. St. Paul said that only the Father is God. Jesus Christ is only one of the Lords, or lesser divine beings.

    The term "lord" is used three different ways in the Old Testament. When you see it in all caps, it refers to "Elohim," God the Father. When you see it as "Lord," it refers God, but not necessarily the Father, most often the Son (for Trinitarians). Lord in all lower case refers to a human overseer.

    In "English" a lot. In the original language the words translated depend on text and the word used. It is difficult to explain a give an explanation for the words in English because the texts are not in English.

    Lord is s title given to the second Person of the Trinity, Jesus Christ.

    In the Christian New Testament, this point is made:

    "There is no God but one. For even if there are so-called gods, whether in heaven or on earth (as indeed there are many 'gods' and many 'lords'), yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live; and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live. But not everyone knows this." (1 Corinthians 8:4-7)

    This shows a distinction between the Father God and the Son of God, yet there's also a similarity that is astonishing. Deity is ascribed to the Father, and lordship to the Son, yet all things came from both of them! And we live for both of them! There is no distinction made between the Father and the Son when it comes to divine creatorship, and divine 'ownership'.

    That is what the Christian Trinity doctrine deals with, that full and equal deity is ascribed to the Father and the Son (and the Holy Spirit), so that all three are correctly called God and all three are correctly called Lord. Yet there are not three Gods or three Lords - this is the one Deity and the one Lord of the Bible.

      Annsan, it's NOT one Lord, Jesus Christ, but one Lord Jesus Christ meaning there is only one Jesus Christ, who is also a Lord. Paul made that very clear when he said (as there be gods many and lords many) For the Lord your God is Gods of gods and Lord of lords. Deut.10:17

    In the BRITISH GOVERNMENT, there is NOT any "House Of Gods".

    in international; cuisine, there IS an "International House of Pancakes", But, unless a Catholic priest says the Magic Words over a pancake, it will not transubstantiate into what the Baltimore Catechism refers to as "...the body and blood, soul and divinity of Jesus". (Jesus is considered a God by them.)

    So, if Catholics in England have it figured out correctly, there COULD be a House of Lords AND a House of Gods.

    The main difference being that the Gods appear to be made of wheat,and do not speak; and the Lords speak such odd statements, that they appear to be made of baloney.

    God describes who he is, and Lord describes his title.

  • Well, Lord denotes mastership over someone, which can be human or god. God is just the term for a deity, which you may or may not follow. I consider my goddess as 'Lady Nidaba'
