Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

make your choice

“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 a 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 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
