Jesus: Good Teacher or God? posted by John Sorensen on Jun 28, 2017
If someone asks you. “What difference does it make if Jesus is a “good teacher” or God?” do you have a ready answer?
Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International. Have you noticed how common it’s become for people to believe that one god is as good as another – and if you believe you’re doing the best you can to follow their teaching, it will all work out in the end? Unfortunately, nothing could be further from the truth. The only reason it will work out in the end for any of us, is because we’ve placed our trust in Jesus Christ alone. There are numerous Scriptures you can use when explaining this to someone including Romans 10:9, “If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” The most important reason that Jesus has to be God is that, if He is “a good teacher” and not God, His death on the Cross is not sufficient to pay the penalty for the sins of all those who will believe.
