Who is Jesus?
November 6, 2012 in Preparedness
This is the question of the ages. If He is not who He said He was. I will relegate my Bible to a shelf with other novels and go on with my life. I can relate to Atheists because I am very skeptical of politicians, as they ( Atheists ) are of the existence of God. I can see by the comments here that they are willing to read scriptures and break them down. I believe the most important scriptures are the ones about who Jesus claimed to be, and who other people said He was. He claimed to Be God and many people believed that He was. Other folks called him a Devil and sought to kill him. These were the religious leaders who were losing their control and admiration of and by the people. Roll your eyes if you must but I’m quoting C.S. Lewis Now. ” I am trying to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him: I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept his claim to be God. That is the one thing we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic -on a level with a pouched egg- or else he would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the son of God; or else a madman or something worse. You can shut Him up for a fool, you can spit at Him and kill Him as a demon; or you can fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God. But let us not come up with any patronizing nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to. C.S. Lewis was a professor at Cambridge University and a former Agnostic.
