I don't think we can pass it off as semantics because in 2 Thess. 1:7-10. Paul tells us that the Lord Jesus is responsible for judgement and sentences everyone who does not obey his gospel everlasting punishment. It would have not been correct if Paul would have used the name of Jesus Christ instead of the Lord Jesus here because Jesus Christ is not the one responsible for judgement. If you study the differences in the names of Jesus used throughout the new testament there is a clear distinction. But it is the apostles who all agreed on using the different names.
