Jesus – Messiah – or a complete nut case

„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 that hook. Christ says, No. I’m not saying I’m a teacher, don’t call me teacher. I’m not saying I’m a prophet. I’m saying: ‚I’m the Messiah.‘ I’m saying: ‚I am God incarnate.‘ . . . So what you’re left with is either Christ was who He said He was—the Messiah—or a complete nut case. . . . The idea that the entire course of civilization for over half of the globe could have its fate changed and turned upside-down by a nut case, for me that’s far fetched.“
