Job 32:21 Let me not, I pray you, accept any man’s person, neither let me give flattering titles unto man.
Job 32:2 For I know not to give flattering titles; in so doing my maker would soon take me away.
Flattering title was translated form the original hebrew word "Kanah" (see Strong's Concordance H3655)
Kanah. To title, surname, be surnamed, give an epithet or cognomen, give a flattering title . (Piel) to call by name, give a title, betitle. (http://www.biblestudytools.com/lexicons/hebrew/kjv/kanah.html).
Kanah. To call some person or thing by a figurative name or cognomen, especially by an honourable appellation, to adorn with a title. (Gesenius' Hebrew-Chaldee Lexicon).
Figurative. 1. Representing something else; typical; representative. (Samuel Johnson's Dictionary 1755).
Accepting a title such as a surname, epithet or cognomen is to represent "something else". This "something else" was not created by God. This "something else" is a persona.

Bear. 4. To carry as a mark of authority. 5. To carry as a mark of distinction.(Samuel Johnson's Dictionary 1755).
First, a name is carried, and second a name is a mark (as in mark of the beast). When where you born? When did you start bearing the distinctive worldly mark that did not come from your Creator.



Style. Title; appelation (Samuel Johnson's Dictionary 1755).
Appelation. Name; word by which any thing is called (Samuel Johnson's Dictionary 1755).
A style is a name and a title.

Exodus 13-14 And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and the shall say unto me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them? And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you
The Creator is not named, the Creator names his creations. Hence your Christian name, which is starkly opposed to the worldly entitlements of the surname.  

Then shall they seek t' avail themselves of names, Places, and titles; and with these to join Secular pow'r, though feigning still to act By Spiritual.
Milton's Paradise Lost

God commanded man what was good ; but the devil surnamed it evil, and thereby baffled the command. ( The London encyclopaedia: Universal dictionary of science, ... - Volume 21, Pg 511)

Good name in man or woman, dear my lord,
Is the immediate jewel of their souls:
Who steals my purse steals trash; tis something, nothing;
T was mine, “t is his, and has been slave to thousands;
But he that filches from me my good name
Robs me of that which not enriches him,
And makes me poor indeed.”
Shakespeare


1787 Pope. When a man is made a spiritual peer he loses his sir-name; when a temporal, his christian-name. The surname robs one of their original Christian name.
Temper. To Temper means to mix, mingle, modify (Samuel  Johnson's Dictionary 1755).
James 2:7 Do not they blaspheme that worthy name by the which ye are called?
The surname blasphemes the Christian name. The Christian name which belongs to Christ is in contradistinction to the surname which belongs to a Nation (a false authority - a false God). To carry the Christian name (only) is to carry a name belonging to the Lord and Savior (hence Christian Name). Should we not be named/entitled in truth by Christ rather than by a nation who offers assumed names?

4. To entitle. 
To the name of Christ, to make profession of faith in him. 2 Timothy 4:1.
I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;

The way by which good and evil commonly operate upon the mind of man, is by those respective names and appellations, by which they are notified and conveyed to the mind. (Sermons Several Occasions By Robert South).

Surnames are not common in scripture, but there are some. Judas "Iscariot" betrayed Jesus. Search "Iscariot" in the bible, most verses also include the word betrayal.

You Control the Christian Name

The legal system deals with humans, natural persons and artificial persons (all represented by you and by your consent). There are two distinct venues here, the legal system rules over a child of the province but the Supreme Creator rules over a child of God. The phrase “child of the Province” is indicative of an entity of the Province and therefore under its control. Would a legal system judge challenge the Creator over control of a true man with spiritual essence, one of God and one who claims the testament as his law? One without a claim upon a surname (flattering title)? The Christian name is carried by man but belongs to the Christ. A man must offer up his Christian name “by consent” and attach it to a Surname and thereby fall under a legal jurisdiction.


Fictitious names exist for a purpose. Fictions are invented to give courts jurisdiction. Snider v. Newell 44 SE 354.

"The omission of the Christian name by either plaintiff or defendant in a legal process prevents he court from acquiring jurisdiction, …" (Bouvier’s Law Dictionary, 8thed., pg. 2287)

Complaint must identify at least one plaintiff by true name; otherwise no action has been commenced.”
Roe v New York (1970, SD NY) 49 FRD 279, 14 FR Serv 2d 437, 8 ALR Fed 670.

Defendant was impleaded by the name of A. W. Becker. Initials are no legal part of a name, the authorities holding the full Christian name to be essential. Wilson v. Shannon, 6 Ark. 196; Norris v. Graves, 4 Strob. 32; Seely v. Boon, 1 N. J. Law, 138; Chappell v. Proctor, Harp. 49; Kinnersley v. Knott, 7 C. B. 980; Turner v. Fitt, 3 C. B. 701; Oakley v. Pegler, (Neb .) 46 N. W. Rep. 920; Knox v. Starks, 4 Minn. 20, (Gil. 7;) Kenyon v. Semon, (Minn.) 45 N. W. Rep. 10; Beggs v. Wellman, 82 Ala. 391, 2 South. Rep. 877; Nash v. Collier, 5 Dowl. & L. 341; Fewlass v. Abbott, 28 Mich. 270. Monroe Cattle Co. v. Becker, 147 U.S. 47 (1893).


Entrapment is by Consent
The legal surname is an essential aspect by which man has been drawn into the legal fiction and thereby into legal land. Once in the legal realm, with a legal surname and a legal entity, one is part and parcel to a secular collective, a public body (body politic), a commonwealth. That commonwealth is not of God, it is secular.
 Jeremiah 5: 26-27 For among my people are found wicked men: they lay wait, as he that setteth snares; they set a trap, they catch men. As a cage is full of birds, so are their houses full of deceit: therefore they are become great, and waxen rich.

Upon adulthood, one carries (bears) the entailments of the parents (surname) and begins working with other secular legal entities within the legal realm. Bonded by consent and lack of knowledge.
Roman Maxim of Law: Let he who would be deceived be deceived.

2 Corinthians 6: 14-18
1 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
 Revelation 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

The Temple of God is You
1 Cor. 6:19-20 What? Know ye not that your body is the Temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own. You are bought with a price; therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.

1 Cor. 3: 16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

1 Cor. 3:17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.

1 Corinthians 7:23 Ye are bought with a price; be not ye the servants of men.

2 Corinthians 3:17 Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

Isaiah 52:3 For thus saith the Lord, Ye have sold yourselves for nothing, and ye shall be redeemed without money.

Matthew 7:14  Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
