The Choice We Must Make

It takes a fantastic will to unbelief to suppose that Jesus never really ‘happened’, and more to suppose that he did not say the things recorded of him  – so incapable of being ‘invented’ by anyone in the world at that time … We must therefore either believe in him and in what he said and take the consequences; or reject him and take the consequences.
