As we celebrate the birthday of Jesus Christ, I think it is expedient for everyone to make sure they have an accurate understanding of who Jesus really is.

But let us not come up with the patronising nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.”
Josh McDowell said “You cannot put Him on the shelf as a great moral teacher. That is not a valid option. He is either a liar, a lunatic, or Lord and God. You must make a choice”.
