Paul clearly taught about Jesus Christ. He lived because of Jesus Christ. He had a personal interaction with Jesus Christ. Jesus is His name, Jehovah is Salvation and the Christ isn't His last name. The Christ is a title, the Messiah or Anointed One. Same word.
We have to be clear who we are talking about. The terms are all different. Cults have a different Jesus. Even many "christian" groups have a different Jesus! The Mormons say Jesus is the half brother of lucifer. The jehovahs witnesses say Jesus is an angel, created being! Some prosperity teachers claim Jesus is no more than a genie, granting their wishes! The Muslims claim Jesus is just a prophet.
The saved claim Jesus is God in the flesh, fully God & fully Man. Jesus created all things and all things consist for Him. He has always been with the Father and the second person of the Trinity of God, Christ the Son! We see Him all throughout the old Testament, often referred to as the Angel of the LORD.
Paul only preached Jesus Christ of Nazareth. The gospel of Christ is the power of God unto salvation! Many have come in Jesus' name, but they are not even in the same universe as Him. I enjoy getting to know my Savior every day.
The choice is glaring. Jesus the Christ, Son of God, fully God, fully human Who offers salvation, eternal life and daily relationship; or a pale imitation that you work pointlessly to serve, a service without joy or love that ends at your last breath. Real or counterfeit, which will it be? I'm eternally grateful that Jesus Christ gave us real salvation, real love, real relationship, real joy and genuine eternity in the Presence of our Father and our Savior.
Now, I wish all would see it so clearly. Its really not a difficult choice, but does take faith. What does one really got to lose by accepting the real Jesus? But everything to lose if their false image of God doesnt pan out.
The Old testament is Christ concealed and the New is Christ revealed. God's Word leaves no doubt who and what Jesus is and "which" Jesus we should follow.
Amen to that! Jesus warned about false christs coming on His name.
