Lead singer of U2, Bono once said of Jesus’ divinity, “No, it’s not far-fetched to me. Look, the secular response to the Christ story always goes like this: He was a great prophet, obviously a very interesting guy, had a lot to say along the lines of other great prophets, be they Elijah, Muhammad, Buddha or Confucius. But actually Christ doesn’t allow you that. He doesn’t let you off the hook. Christ says, ‘No. I’m not saying I’m a teacher, don’t call me a teacher. I’m not saying I’m a prophet … I’m saying I’m God incarnate.’ And people say: ‘No, no, please, just be a prophet. A prophet we can take.’”
So what you’re left with is either Christ was who He said He was, or a complete nutcase. The idea that the entire course of civilization for the past 2000 years and over half of the globe could have its fate changed and turned upside down by a nutcase, for me that’s far-fetched.
So, was Jesus a liar or a lunatic, or was he the Son of God? You must make your choice. You cannot sit on the fence post and stay neutral on this. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God, our Savior or else a madman or something worse. What will you do with Jesus this Christmas?
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.
Merry Christmas to all and to all I pray you see the Light!
