Was Jesus Bragging...

or was He Who He claimed to be? (And what does Taylor Hicks have to do with that question?) Charlie Lehardy considers these and other issues:
Jesus...claimed that he and God were partners. Buddies. God had shared his plans with Jesus. The two of them had divvied up responsibilities. He implied that they were alike in their natures, since Jesus expected to be around on the Day of Judgment sending people off to their eternal reward, or punishment.

Is it any wonder the religious leaders thought he was dangerous? In their eyes, Jesus was a liar, a blasphemer, and a false teacher who was leading innocent people astray.

It makes my fantasies about singing in front of thousands of screaming teen-agers seem pretty harmless.

Why, I could go around impersonating President Bush and be guilty of a lot less than Jesus.

Unless it's all true. As we used to say when I was a kid: It ain't bragging if you can do it. Was Jesus bragging? Was Jesus delusional? Was Jesus a liar?

Or was Jesus the Son of the eternal God?
