Insurance against ‘Lordship Events’

Good principles can be corrupted by immorality of those expected to act as guardians of such principles.

Whether we like it or not, there exist possibilities of Lordship Events within every single society represented on this Earth.

Regardless of adoption or not of ‘Lord’ terminology, what matters the most in interactions within society is fairness, equity, and justice.

Adoption of ‘Lord’ terminology in interactions between people within a society increases probability of abuse.

Labor laws that protect against Lordship Events never are perfect.

Ultimate Insurance

What Jesus demands in exchange for insurance against Lordship Events seems like gravy to me.

If Jesus Christ really is Creator of Heaven and Earth, and calling of anyone ‘Lord’ serves to protect against Lordship Events, only Jesus Christ is worthy of ‘Lord’ appellation.

We induce Jesus as protector against Lordship Events not via our sycophancy, but by our actions.

When we call Jesus Lord in our actions and words, we are declaring “Ultimately, Jesus I am submitting watching over of my affairs on earth to you.”

Jesus’ demand for Lord terminology passes litmus test of pure motives, and interactions founded on fairness, equity, and justice. What Jesus demands in exchange for His protections seems like gravy to me.
