On answering the question what do we do with Jesus. How do we respond to the person, claims and works of Jesus Christ? C.S. Lewis, (1898-1963) in his book, Mere Christianity lays out the three ways that He has to be seen… none of which is a good person.
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 the 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. You can shut Him up for a fool, you can spit at Him and kill Him as a demon; or you can fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God. But let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.
