Was he truthful?

[Add New]

Pro

  • No sane person would claim to be the Son of God if they did not truly believe that this was the case. Such claims leave the claimant vulnerable to a higher risk of ridicule and possibly persecution. This is especially important in Jesus' case, as his claims gave his enemies an excuse to crucify him. Nobody in their right mind would die for a lie, especially such a painful death as crucifixion.

Was he sane?

Pro

  • Insane people generally aren't brilliant at gaining followers. Jesus has gained many followers, both during his time on Earth and afterwards. In fact more people in the world today adhere to his ideology than to any other. How many other non- populist madmen have gained such recognition?
