Puritan Belief

The Puritans are the men of God who started in the 16th century building on the purity of the gospel message that Salvation is by Grace alone.

ONE LORD, JESUS CHRIST ! (1 Corinthians 8:6)

I Cor. 8:6  'ONE LORD, Jesus Christ'!
The Scriptures said, ONE LORD, Jesus Christ!
The Scriptures does NOT say that there are TWO Lords, but only ONE LORD and He is the ONLY sovereign LORD (Jude 1:4).
In this world we have many men who are called lord or have a title 'lord', but in the Scriptures there is only ONE who is the sovereign Lord and that is the LORD Jesus Christ of Nazareth (Jude 1:4). That means, that the Lord Jesus Christ is above every other one.

β€œ1 Cor. 8:5-6 'For if there are so called gods whether in heaven or on earth, as indeed there are many gods and many lords, yet for us is but ONE God, the FATHER, from whom are all things and we exist for Him; and ONE LORD Jesus Christ, by whom are ALL things, and we exist through Him.”

In the Scriptures the title LORD means GOD, Lord is just another word and title for GOD (Luke 1:32).
And it is the LORD who is the Father (Mat. 11:25).

If there is ONE LORD Jesus Christ (1 Cor. 8:6), it stands to reason that the Lord Jesus Christ IS the Father, or else there would be TWO LORDS, but the Scriptures said that there is ONE LORD.
And if the Lord Jesus Christ is the (ONE) Lord, then any OTHER is NOT 'LORD'.
Therefore Jehovah, Yahweh, Allah and Krishna are NOT Lord, but impostors and antichrists.
If they are NOT LORD, then they are NOT GOD and NOT the FATHER.

Philippians 2:9 -11 β€œFor this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the NAME which is above every NAME, so that at the NAME of JESUS every knee will bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is LORD, to the glory of God the Father.”

Here we can see, that every one who claims to believe in God, must CONFESS (speak, say) that the LORD JESUS CHRIST of Nazareth is the LORD GOD the ALMIGHTY, the FATHER of all creation.
If you can't say that, then you don't believe in Him who is the ONLY God our saviour (Jude 1:25), and you will die in your sins (John 8:24).
But whosoever believes in the Lord JESUS Christ will not perish but have eternal life.


So the question and debate remains.
Is there another entity who is called LORD, other than the LORD Jesus Christ of Nazareth ?

If there is ANOTHER LORD called Father, then there are TWO LORDS.
If there is ANOTHER LORD called God, then there are TWO LORDS.

But the Scriptures say that there is only ONE Lord who is deity, Jesus who is called the Christ.
JESUS is the 'LORD of LORDS' (Revelation 17:14).
