This was in my facebook news feed today.
It is presumed that if the Jesus you know isn’t the one being proclaimed here that you are serving an idol and are most likely deluded and going to hell. The only problem is it’s not as if any two people have the same idea of who exactly that Jesus is. And since each person who proclaims this message seems to have cornered the market on him, I’m not exactly sure how to know which one is the right one.
So for crying out loud, will the REAL Jesus please stand up!?! There are a lot of us out here who would like to follow if we could only get a good understanding of who you really are. Are you a myth? Were you a real historical person that other people embellished for their own agenda? Were you really born of a virgin? Did you really rise from the dead? C.S. Lewis says you’re either a lunatic, liar or the Lord. That doesn’t leave any possibility that parts of the gospels could be true and other parts fabricated. It doesn’t leave open the possibility that people who weren’t eyewitnesses to the actual events could have misrepresented them or simply gotten the facts wrong.
For all of her emotion and sincerity it’s still as clear as mud who she’s calling The Christ. There’s a laundry list of things he definitely is not, but no definitive answer to who exactly he is.
