He would either be a lunatic on the level with a man who says he s a poached egg or else he would be the devil of hell; you must take your choice. Either this was, and is, the Son of God, or else a mad man or something worse. You can shut Him up for a demon; or you can fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God. But don t come up with any patronizing nonsense about His being a great moral teacher. He hasn t left that alternative open to us. Jesus Man, Myth or God? Perhaps you have wondered, Is Christianity really established upon historical facts? Dr. Clifford Herbert Moore, former professor at Harvard University writes: Christianity knew its Savior and Redeemer, not as some god whose history was contained in a mythical faith, with rude, primitive and even offensive elements. The Christian s faith is founded on positive, historical and acceptable facts. A long list could be made of such outstanding scholars who devoutly followed Christ. Dr. William Lyon Phelps, for forty years professor at Yale University and one of the most distinguished educators in the history of our country, expressed his confidence in the historical evidence concerning the death of the Lord Jesus Christ and frequently shared his personal faith in Christ as Savior and Lord. It is true that there are men among them some of the world s most honored scholars who do not believe that Jesus is the Son of God, our Savior. But I am appalled when I talk to many of these men about Christ, for I discover that almost always they are ignorant of the basic truths of the gospel. If you would read any of the writings of Robert Ingersoll, Thomas Paine, or other wellknown skeptics, you would be amazed to discover that these men are taking issue with something that they do not fully understand. They have erected straw men, labeled them Christianity, and then have proceeded to destroy their own creations. Intellectual Integrity As a young lad, I often attended church and was even baptized when I was 12 years of age. But I know now that I was not a Christian, because I did not really understand what Christianity was all about. To me, church was a place for social activities. Though it was very likely my fault, the sermons did not communicate to me. As soon as I was old enough to exercise my individual rights, I began to question and doubt the validity of Christianity and the claims of the Bible. I became an agnostic. Through my high school and college years, as a college professor and later as a businessman, I continued in my spiritual illiteracy. I doubted the Bible which I never took the time to read and questioned the authenticity of the Christian faith, which I never bothered to investigate. As an ambitious young businessman in Hollywood, I met a group of people who spoke of Jesus Christ as their dearest Friend, Savior and Lord. They
