Jesus - Liar, Lunatic, or Lord?
Jesus Fu*king Christ- Lord, Liar, Lunatic or just a mythical Legend?
There are a lot of atheists who say Jesus may have been a great moral teacher, but they don't accept his divinity.
Well, writer and Christian apologist C. S. Lewis -- you remember him from the Narnia books -- he said that you weren't allowed to say that.
If Jesus really said the things he said, that he could rise from the dead, that he could forgive people's sins, that there were really only three options: he was a lunatic, he was a liar, or he really was the Lord.
Or, in other words, he was mad, bad, or God. This "trilemma", as he put it, has been called by some Christian apologists as the strongest argument they have in their arsenal. The only problem is it's not a very good argument at all.
