  1. Thank you for a rather interesting read.
    I’d just like to say that I especially agree with the assertion that we live in a culture of indifference. I’d extend it to say that we live in a culture that seems to demand that indifference or non-belief be the standard.
    Peace be with you.

    Blomberg seems to overlook what Lewis is actually claiming. If we look closely at what Lewis writes here, we find that he is speaking to someone who has already concluded that Jesus was not a legend. Lewis begins, “I am trying 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….'”

    So this person has accepted 1) that Jesus really existed and 2) that he said the things he said in the Gospels. This person wants to then see this historical person as a great moral teacher.

    We might restate Lewis’s argument as “If you already accept that Jesus was not a legend and that he said what the Gospels claim he said, then he was either a liar, a lunatic, or the Lord.”
