What a wonderful post, Dory. It's great reminder of Christ's sovereignty in our lives.

Matthew 12:8-42 has always been one of my favorite encounters between Christ and the Pharisees. Of course it's always saddened me too, because many of them appear to have been so blinded to the truth even when it was standing before them.

Dory, this is another powerful apology. If you put this in tract form I will pass it out, too, along with your "Are You Bad Enough to Be a Christian." God bless you.


Good post Dory. I've known the "Liar, Lunatic, or Lord" apologetic but it is excellent to look at examples. I think I might do this myself - it's a good exercise.


I guess you could have wroten even longer if you showed all of the places in the Bible where Jesus tells us that he is much more than a profet -> that is in fact the Good News of the Gospel! The one we shouth out to anyone who will hear :)

But the main thing is: do they believe that the Bible tells the truth??? For if they do - there is no way that they can settle for the simple: he's a good moral teacher. He is so much more!

God Bless!


That's a really good post, Dory. I've always loved this passage from Mere Christianity, and your post provides some real concrete examples to back it up.

I think it's a great way to make the fence-sitters take a stand. Enough talk of the "historical Jesus" who was a "great moral teacher" but not the son of God. It's pretty much an incoherent argument as this post points out...
