I am come as a light into the world, that whosoever believes in me should not abide in darkness. John 12:46
There is no denying the fact that the claims of Christ are radical. Jesus statements concerning Himself present every person with a choice to be made. We must either accept or reject His claims. He was either telling the truth or He was lying.
He claimed to be the Son of God and that He came to save the world. It is not an option to simply ignore such statements. For if Jesus is truly who He claimed to be, then our eternal destiny will be determined by whether or not we believe those claims.
