C.S. Lewis Quote

C.S. Lewis

"I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing thatpeople often say about Him: "I'm ready to accept Jesus as a great moralteacher, but I don't accept His claim to be God." That is the one thing wemust not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesussaid would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic--on alevel with the man who says he is a poached egg--or else he would be theDevil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, theSon of God: or else a madman or something worse. You can shut Him up for afool, you can spit at Him and kill Him as a demon; or you can fall at Hisfeet and call Him Lord and God. But let us not come with any patronisingnonsense about His being a great moral teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to." C.S. Lewis
