It’s not unusual to hear people say something like, “I like Jesus. I think He was a good person and His message of love and peace is what the world needs more of!”
Having reached that conclusion however, most of us never take the time to think or look more deeply at the implications of what we have said.
C.S. Lewis, author of the well-known children’s book, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe put the problem this way:
“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….”
This Easter at Woodvale Baptist Church we are encouraging you to make up your own mind about who Jesus is and what He did.
Why did Jesus die?
Why did He rise?
These are vital questions with life changing implications and we must all come to a definite decision about them.
Why not join us at one of our Easter services where we will consider these questions and help you decide what you believe about Jesus?
