One of CS Lewis' most famous quotes from "Mere Christianity"

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 a 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."

I'm not sure how much clearer he could be in proclaiming the truth about Jesus...

Well, Lewis may have used some philosophical arguments, but then so did Paul in Acts 17.  He did not stand up and say "Hey, you fools, if you don't believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and savior, you are going to hell!"
Paul started with a philosophical argument, and then told them the truth.

That is all that CS Lewis did.
Don't be so fast to jump up and point the finger and scream "ANTICHRIST!!!!!!" at something that does not say Jesus in every other word.

JUST A THINK ABOUT IT: Will you embrace the full meaning of Christmas? Jesus didn't die just so you could go to heaven. He came to give you life - His life; an abundant life free from guilt, condemnation, and slavery to both sins and religion. He came to bring a grace revolution to the world and tha
