Jesus is God
Author C. S. Lewis summarizes our challenge:
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.11
Here is a pretty rad video done by the Slawson Bro from Wisconsin. They flew out to shoot a music video for the kids in our neighborhood, they freaked out when they saw the final cut.

Man is a rebel who wants to do his own thing without any or very little accountability for his actions. Since the fall of man, this has been the case, but a worldwide phenomenon of our day is defiance of any form established authority whether religious or secular or political. When God either does not exist in the beliefs of men or when the truth about God is distorted into man’s own image of who and what God is like, everything is permitted, morally speaking. ( As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.” Prov 27:17) I’m blessed to have rad friends!
