Is saying Jesus Christ in a sentence shirk? Example. Saying “Jesus Christ is not my lord.” Because I said the following sentence stated above and now I fear I might’ve committed shirk as only Catholics and christans say it
I believe the word in and of itself is not shirk; it just depends on how you use it. So, we have two words here:
- "Jesus": That's just the name of the Messenger of Allah. There's nothing wrong with it.
- "Christ": This has the same meaning as the word "Messiah" (1) which is mentioned several time in the Quran.
So, I don't think there's a problem with saying "Jesus Christ is not my lord", considering that it has the same meaning as "The Messiah, Jesus/Isa is not my lord" and you can find versus in the Quran with similar meaning. For example:
..The Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, was but a messenger of Allah...
[Surat An-Nisa 4:171]
However, the same words could be used in a way that might lead to shirk. For example, using it in the same way that Christians use it to express some emotions (e.g., saying "[Oh,] Jesus Christ!") which might imply a call for help (i.e., thinking of Jesus as God).
