Who is Jesus to you?
“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
a man who says he is a poached egg—or he would be
the devil of hell. You must take your choice. Either this
was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman or
something worse. You can shut Him up for a fool or you
can fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God. But let us
not come 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
