Jesus the Liar, Lunatic or Lord
Home > Modern Descriptions of Jesus > Jesus the Liar, Lunatic or Lord

Among Pantheists, like the Indians, anyone might say that he was a part of God, or one with God: there would be nothing very odd about it. But this man, since He was a Jew, could not mean that kind of God. God, in their language, meant the Being outside the world Who had made it and was infinitely different than anything else. And when you have grasped that, you will see that what this man said was, quite simply, the most shocking thing that has ever been uttered by human lips...

...I am trying here 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 the level with the man who says he is a poached 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 with any patronising nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.

No he was not
Jesus was who he said he was the son of the living God. I believe and the Bible support this that Jesus was born of a virgin, he came to earth not to condem man but to save man from eternal damnation, without the shedding of blood their can be no redemption of sin. In a nutshell God is the Trinty: God the Father, The Son, and the Holy Sprit.

It would indeed be a foolish thing to accept Jesus ONLY as a great moral teacher (He was of course a great moral teacher), and not know Him as Lord and as God. However, it is just as foolish to believe and teach that Jesus existed as the Son of God, before He was born as the Son of God, 2000 years ago. John 1:14 does NOT say: And Jesus became flesh. It says: “And the WORD (of God) became flesh.” It was the Word of God that BECAME the Son of God when God impregnated Mary, His (surrogate) wife, and she gave birth to the first (so) begotten Son of God. For 33 ½ years Jesus was a BORN human being and a BEGOTTEN God being. After His death and by a resurrection, He was BORN AGAIN, never able to die again. Only the Jesus who is our LORD and GOD, can save us from the dead penalty, and give us eternal life.

Even when I can't see him i believe that he exist in line with heb 11:1.I have that sense of feeling that he is always with me by Faith and indeed i feel him and i really enjoy his presence this started when i gave my life to him {Jesus}.Have an encounter with him and i bet you will not regret it.
