liar, lunatic, or Lord

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 of a man who says he is a poached egg - or else He would be the devil of hell. You must make your choice. Either this manw as, and is, the Son of God: Or else He is 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.

-C.S. Lewis
