Confessions of a Secular Jesus Follower – the Janet Parshall show – September

This months appearance on the Janet Parshall show was as enjoyable as ever!  The subject is very important – the increasing publication of books about Jesus (see Krattenmaker’s above) and suggesting we can follow him without being a believer!  One difficulty is that far too many Christians think that at least its a good thing that people are talking about Jesus and view these books as positive.  Here is where the discussion went…

  1. Not listened to it yet, but from your introduction, it’s worth quoting again:

    “I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him: I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept his claim to be God. That is the one thing we must not say. 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. 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, but let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about his being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.” CS Lewis

    There are others, “red letter” followers of Jesus, who thereby seek to undermine or relegate the rest of scripture, to argue their case, for their changed moral position.
