Four quotes about Jesus

Why don't the names of Buddha, Mohammed, Confucius offend people? The reason is that these others didn't claim to be God, but Jesus did. - Josh McDowell

I am an historian, I am not a believer, but I must confess as a historian that this penniless preacher from Nazareth is irrevocably the very center of history. Jesus Christ is easily the most dominant figure in all history. - H.G. Wells

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 a 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 patronising nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to. - C.S. Lewis

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me". - Jesus (John 14:6)

GREAT quotes! Enjoyed reading them.

The boys' room looks great. Nothing as refreshing as getting that good fit of practicality and organization...just keep on with the mantra, though!! :-)
