If You Call Jesus a Prophet, You Must Call Him God - He Proclaimed It!
Some religions and individuals claim Jesus was a good prophet, but they deny He is God.
That isn't possible.
Jesus is either God or a liar.
Why? Because Jesus claimed to be the Son of God, equal to God, and the Only Way of Salvation.(1)
If a person truly accepts Jesus as a good prophet or teacher, they must believe what He says.
As C.S. Lewis wrote in Mere Christianity:
“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.”
I choose to fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God.
How about you?
