When he was asked who was the most influential person in his life, George Bush quickly responded, "Jesus Christ." Would you also say that Jesus Christ is the most influential person in your life?

Faced with the criticism of a skeptical intellectual community, C.S. Lewis decided to find out for himself who Jesus was. His search was also intensified by the evils he saw in war as innocent people died, and the confusion of it all evoked the question, "If there is a God, why doesn't He intercede in this madness and chaos which has engulfed our world?"

In his book Mere Christianity, Lewis rebutted the position: "I'm ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher but not as the Son of God." He explained: "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 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 up with any patronizing nonsense about His being a great moral teacher. He has not left that open to us."

Having confronted the claims of Christ's unique position as God's Son who loved you and gave Himself for you when He died on the cross, you have to decide.


And when the centurion, who stood there in front of Jesus, heard his cry and saw how he died, he said, "Surely this man was the Son of God!  MARK 15:39
