“He is either a lunatic, a liar, or the Lord.”
His teachings were hard to swallow for many of His contemporaries, specially for those in power and those from the privileged classes. Even those who followed Hm often found it difficult to swallow what He was teaching them.
There were those who said He was a madman, that He was the devil incarnate. But He did exactly the opposite of what the devil would have done. And when He spoke, He spoke with such forceful reason that spoke of greater intelligence, sanity and prudence. He spoke of love, which while defying all logic, is the only rational choice in this crazy world we live in. Indeed, He was the Fool on the Hill.
There were those who said He spoke lies, that He was a rabble rouser feeding the crowds untruths to get their support and sympathy. But the truth He spoke has freed and liberated people and anguished souls not only during His time but down the ages.
He might had just been a great moral teacher but He is not God. Christ is unique among the great teachers of the world to have claimed that He is God. He forgave sins like only God can. He said He has existed for all time, that “before Abraham came to be, I AM.” And He promised to come at the end of time to judge all of us.
Jesus Christ is Lord!
