Claims of Being Anointed

I shall not attempt to write any debate. Just read and ponder over the next few simple lines.

Matthew 24:4-5
Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many.

Look up the dictionary for the meaning of Christ in Greek (the language this verse was written in). It actually means “anointed”.

Let’s re-read Matt in its original meaning:
For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am anointed,’ and will deceive many.

Look around you. How many people actually claim to be Jesus Christ Himself? For those who do, how many followers did they have and how long were they able to stand? So was Jesus talking abt those who are impersonating Him? Or was He refering to Christians who call themselves anointed?

Think about it…
