“Uh-huh, Uh-huh, Yo, Yo…”

Easter


This is one of my favorite quotes from C.S. Lewis:

“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.” – Mere Christianity, pages 40-41.

  3. I love this quote, posted it last Easter on my blog. Unfortunately, it is sometimes misunderstood. All the same, I admire Lewis and this quote.

    Happy Easter, girl! πŸ™‚
