The Unique Christ by Dr. J.T. Parish
The Unique Christ
Jesus Christ is unique in so many ways. He is the only person who is as old as His Father. He is the only person who had no human father. He is the only person conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin. Jesus is as perfect God as though He were not man at all and as perfect man as though He were not God at all. He is the God/man. He is God in the flesh.
He is the only person qualified to atone for our sins. He was born without original sin. lived without committing sin, and died for our sins. Jesus is our only way to heaven. He is the first person raised from the dead in a resurrected glorified body. He is the one and only mediator between God and man. Jesus was unique in His conception, His birth, His life, His death, His resurrection, His present ministry, and His return to earth.
He said, “I am the way the truth and the life; No one comes to the father except through me.” C.S. Lewis laid to rest the fuzzy headed thinking of theological liberals by pointing out one thing that Jesus certainly is not – He is not just a good man. He claims to be the Son of God. If he is not. then He is either a liar or a lunatic. So we only have three choices. Either Jesus is a liar, or He is delusional and actually thought He was God – or He is who He said He is – the Lord!
Billy Graham said, “If Jesus is not who He claimed to be then nothing matters spiritually. However, if Jesus is who He claimed to be, then nothing else matters! Is Jesus Christ your Lord?
