Choices have consequences

According to Proverbs 15:3, God’s knowledge is limitless. His understanding is infinite: His wisdom is not tethered on a stick. No time or space can outwit Him.
He is the centre and the circumference of knowledge. He is the antithesis of imprudence.
The fool says in his heart, “there is no God.” For there is no knowledge of God in him. A fool thinks tomorrow belongs to Him, and He does not realize God can require his or her soul overnight.
God knows the past for He is the Alpha.
He knows the future for He is Omega.
He knows the present for He is, ‘I AM’.
He is Omniscient.

However, there is also a certain kind of knowledge that does not come from God. It is the knowledge that puffs up. It denies that God came in the flesh, died and rose to save mankind.
It does not acknowledge the fact that humanity is fallen and in need of a Savior. This kind of knowledge posits that human beings can differentiate right from wrong without Moral reference. It states that humankind is perfect. It argues that mankind can save self. It declares that Christ did not die on the cross, but another guy was killed on his behalf. It teaches that evil and good are subjective. This is the kind of knowledge that puffs up. We are living in the 21st Century. A century of increased humanism, atheism, agnosticism etc. A century with heightened activities of multiple religions and bizarre religious practices. All these seem to point you in the right direction.

Nonetheless, there is only one man in history who said: “I AM THE WAY, TRUTH AND LIFE”. This man is Jesus. To make such an exclusive claim, Jesus must have been either arrogant, very proud, lunatic, or Lord and Savior. Paul, Peter, John, Stephen and other followers of the 1st Century must have been nuts to gamble their lives for a deranged fellow or a man who escaped the cross and instead another man crucified in his behalf. They must have been amok to endure stripes and painful lives for a man who did not resurrect from the dead. They must have been hallucinating all their lives. Josephus and other great secular historians of those days must have been high on something to write about somebody who never was. They must have been mentally impaired to write about things that never happened. The stories about Pontius Pilate, Julius Caesar, Augustus Caesar, Herod the Great, Alexander the Great, Hannibal, Leonidas, Socrates, Plato, Nebuchadnezzar, Aristotle, Vasco da Gama, Vikings,etc. are just fabrications, and people who wrote the accounts of these guys were hallucinating at best and at worst bonkers. Perhaps they are just myths. So why bother believing them? Jesus is either a lunatic, an arrogant fellow, or Omniscient Lord and Savior. The choice is yours; choices have consequences.
