August 13, 2013 –Mother Who Named Her Son Messiah In Tennessee Ordered To Change It “The Only True Messiah Is Jesus Christ” – Judge
A woman named Jaleesa Martin who named her baby boy Messiah in Tennessee has been ordered to change the name to Martin.
According to a judge ruling in TN, the only true messiah there is is Jesus Christ.
“The word ‘messiah’ is a title, and it’s a title that has only been earned by one person, and that one person is Jesus Christ. And the child would likely struggle with his given first name because he lives in Cocke County, a predominantly Christian area in eastern Tennessee”, the Judge said.
The mother who claims she named her son messiah said she did it because she likes the sound of it and not for religious purpose.
Jaleesa named her first and second born Mason and Micah.
She has vowed to appeal the judge’s order.
