  He said Jesus is LORD, not liar or lunatic. As I remember, Lewis says that Jesus of the gospels doesn't strike us as a lunatic, "on the order of a man who says he is a poached egg." No, Jesus said he was other improbable things. Introduction. Recent surveys and polls show that 98% of Americans believe in God. But these same polls reveal many do not believe that Jesus Christ is the God they believe in. Tonight, John Ankerberg will examine the evidence and the claims of Christianity’s central figure to answer the question, “Was Jesus Christ a liar, a lunatic, a legend, or God?”.

LUNATIC.A term derived from the Lat. luna, “moon,” indicating a person under the influence of the is the meaning of the Gr. verb σεληνιάζεται (Matt ; ), which reflected the Gr. idea, found also in other cultures, that an individual could be affected mentally by the insanity contemplated was thought to have recurring periods which corresponded to the. Characters: Jesus, the three who saw the vision, the nine other apostles, a lunatic boy, his father, scribes, a great multitude. Research Thoughts: The lesson teachings from the bringing of the vision into contact with the world's deepest needs. The lunatic boy. Why the nine could not cure him.

Jesus knew and recognized the difference between insanity and demoniacal possession, although these states were greatly confused in the minds of those who lived in his day and generation. Even prior to Pentecost no rebel spirit could dominate a normal human mind, and since that day even the weak minds of inferior mortals are free from such.   Jesus Christ: the Son of God? Or, was He a lunatic? Or, a liar? One of the most effective ways used by opponents throughout the centuries has been to damn Jesus with faint g with faint praise “effectively condemns by seeming to offer praise which is too moderate or marginal to be considered praise at all.”.

Some will even go as far as calling Jesus a great moral teacher but not the Lord over all creation. This seemed to be the type of thinking that led C.S.

Lewis to his famous trilemma (Jesus is lunatic, liar, or Lord). To Lewis, to say that Jesus is a great teacher or a great moral example but not the Lord just doesn’t make sense. Mark 5 J.B. Phillips New Testament (PHILLIPS) Jesus meets a violent lunatic. 5 So they arrived on the other side of the lake in the country of the Gerasenes.

As Jesus was getting out of the boat, a man in the grip of an evil spirit rushed to meet him from among the tombs where he was living. Liar, Lunatic or Lord Hardcover – November 1, by Dennis Harris (Author) out of 5 stars 3 ratings/5(3).

Lewis's trilemma is an apologetic argument traditionally used to argue for the divinity of Jesus by arguing that the only alternatives were that he was evil or deluded. One version was popularised by University of Oxford literary scholar and writer C. Lewis in a BBC radio talk and in his writings.

Lunatic on a limb with Jesus book It is sometimes described as the "Lunatic, Liar, or Lord", or "Mad, Bad, or God" argument. Jesus called himself “Son of Man. ” Jesus referred to Himself using this title 80 times in the gospels. “Son of Man” refers to Daniel’s vision: “In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was one like a son of man, coming with the clouds of heaven” (Daniel ).

Lewis, following in the train of those who preceded him, argued along these lines: (1) If Jesus were not Lord, he would be a liar or a lunatic. (2) Jesus was neither a liar nor a lunatic. (3) Therefore, Jesus is Lord.

But this argument is unsound, because the first premise is false, because there's another option (he was a legend and didn't really say these things after all). Moreover, given Jesus’ great ethical teachings, it is completely unreasonable to think that he could have lied about the most important facet of his proclamation, his own identity; and given the tenor of his life as we have it recorded in our early Gospels, he was nothing like a lunatic, but was exceedingly clear and level-headed and.

Was Jesus a Liar, Lunatic, or God. by Servetus the Evangelical None of the above. But that is what C.S. Lewis () asks in his little book, Mere Christianity ().

It is one of the foremost apologetic works in the history of Christianity. Inthe premier American Christian magazine, Christianity Today. Lord, Liar or Lunatic. An Analysis of the Trilemma James Still.

Christian apologist C. Lewis wrote in Mere Christianity that Jesus was either Lord, a lunatic, or "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.". They were brought in to build a railway line, one of the most difficult to be built in the history of the railways.

So tragic were the consequences of building it, with loss of life and limb, that the railway line started on 30th May, and built on the backs of Indian labor, was famously named the ‘lunatic line.’. Miracles: The Lunatic Healed. Matt. And when they were come to the multitude, there came to Him a man, kneeling down to Him, and saying, lord, have mercy on my son; for he is lunatic, and sore vexed: for oft-times he falls into the fire, and oft into the water, etc.

WHAT do you here understand by the man kneeling down to Jesus, and saying, lord, have mercy on my son, for he is. 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 the level with the man who says he is a poached egg — or else he would be the Devil of Hell. Jesus made some pretty extraordinary claims, such as the claim to be God. But should we believe him. Karlo dives into the gospels to take a look at whether Jesus was a liar, a lunatic, or if he.

While the word was in the king’s mouth, a voice came from heaven, saying, ‘King Nebuchadnezzar, to you it is declared: sovereignty has been removed from you, and you will be driven away from mankind, and your dwelling place will be with the beasts of the field. You will be given grass to eat like cattle, and seven periods of time will pass over you until you recognize that the Most High is.

One of Jesus’ profound statements can be found in John where Jesus says, “I and the Father are one.” To clarify, Jesus is basically saying, “I am God. I think we all can agree that claiming to be God is a rather bold statement.

If Jesus was a lunatic, He very well could have believed it as well. The “liar, lunatic, Lord trilemma” is typically attributed to C. Lewis, but the argument has a long history with many reference points in Christian teaching.

I first read it in Watchman Nee’s Normal Christian Faith my sophomore year in high school, which predates Mere Christianity by a few years. An example of this is Perry’s argument regarding additional options other than Lord, liar, or lunatic that could apply to Jesus.

Perry says that perhaps Jesus was a fictional character, and therefore, does not have to be the Lord, a liar, or a lunatic. The problem with this is that it ignores the assumption that the Gospels are reliable. Jesus claimed to be God-period. He didn’t leave any other option open.

Truth is, his claim must either be true or false. Jesus’ question to his disciples, “Who do you say I am?” (Matthew ), has several alternatives. Was he a liar. If Jesus. A2A Can anyone give me a real argument to C.S Lewis' trilemma, that Jesus had to be a liar, lunatic, or lord?

Sure. Lewis was a Christian Apologist in the early 20th century. The mission of an Apologist is to comfort the faithful, not confound the.here today. If he had been crazy, like a lunatic, we certainly would not be in church today to learn about him.

But because he is the Son of God, we need to understand the importance of the things he said and help teach others about him. Lord, Liar or Lunatic?
