“Christianity, if false, is of no importance, and if true, of infinite importance. The only thing it cannot be is moderately important.” C. S. Lewis
We’re broken, lost, misled. We have problems, we fall short, we’re not perfect. A lot of pastors like to use the size of the self-improvement section at your local book store as an example of that. I just like to look at the divorce and suicide rates. We are broken, it’s evident. The bible refers to this brokenness as sin. The thing is; it’s not our fault. The even better thing is; there’s a solution. And I know that you already know what I’m going to say, but before you write Him off, just think.. Jesus was real, He may not have been God, but He was definitely a real person. I mean, He even made such a significant impact that we base our time around Him..
We all put our faith in something, don’t we? It may not be God, it may be a person, or a product, or a philosophy, but we’re all counting on something – what we count on is what gives our lives purpose. I’m counting on the fact that this Jesus guy wasn’t lying when He said that He was God, because if He was, He’s a liar and an idiot that no one should look to for any kind of wisdom – but if He wasn’t, He’s God and He’s the answer to all of our problems. That’s why Jesus is either worth whole-heartedly following, or worth totally disregarding. Those are the only two logical ways to respond to His existence..
“Either this man was, and is, the Son of God: or else a madman or something worse.” C. S. Lewis
