Jesus Christ’s Effect on Man’s Emotions

Goethe, German writer and scientist, master of poetry, drama, and the novel he spent 50 years on, 1749-1832

"We are shaped and fashioned by what we love."

Tim La Haye, Contemporary author and speaker

"Whenever the emotions and the will are in conflict, the emotions win."

- Emotionally induced illness accounts for 65-80% of modern sickness.

Cicero, Roman statesman, orator, and philosopher, 106-43 B.C.

From De Finibus bk. I, chp. 13, Sec. 4

"Inability to tell good from evil is the greatest worry of man's life."

Latin:

"ignoratione rerum bonarum et malarum, maxime hominum vita vexetur."

Napoleon Bonaparte, Emperor of the French (1804-1814). A brilliant military strategist, 1769-1821

"The nature of Christ’s existence is mysterious, I admit; but this mystery meets the wants of man. Reject it and the world is an inexplicable riddle – believe it; and the history of our race is satisfactorily explained.”

"I know men and I tell you, Jesus Christ is not a man.”

“His religion is a revelation from an intelligence which certainly is not that of a man.”

“Between him and whoever else in the world, there is no possible term of comparison. He is truly a being by himself. His ideas and his sentiments, the truth which he announces, his manner of convincing, are not explained by human organization. The nearer I approach, the more carefully I examine, everything is above me – everything remains grand, of a grandeur which overpowers.”

“I see in Lycurgus, Numa, and Mohammed only legislators. Nothing announces them divine. On the contrary, there are numerous resemblances between them and myself – foibles and error which ally them to me and to humanity. But it is not so with Christ – everything in Him astonishes me. His spirit overawes me, and His will confounds me.”

“Here I see nothing human.”

“He is not a philosopher.”
