As concerning therefore the eating of those things that are offered in sacrifice unto idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is none other God but one. For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,) But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.
Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords; Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen.
In the Bible God is often called "Lord", but also Jesus is at times called such, or is the one meant when in the New Testament "Lord" is referred to. Also completely normal men in high positions named such. It therefore is important, to look at the contents to recognise who is meant, and which depth and consequences this label has.
Special attention needs to be given to the fact that in both Bible translations the name of God has been replaced by the word "Lord". We take a cursory look at this under the heading The Name of God.
