...just a great moral teacher?...

 "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 the 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."   Clive Staples Lewis
So, so many want to, try to, think they do... put God, Jesus and the Gospel in their little box. Convenient. A little box they put their little thoughts and decisions into, fold closed, tuck under their arm and carry around like a possession. My little opinion in my little box. Like that changes ...anything.

Smile. Wink.

I call Him Lord and God,
j
