73: Is Jesus a Liar, a Lunatic, or the Lord? with Stephen Mackey
In this episode, our host Kenny is joined, once again, by pastor, speaker, and podcaster Stephen Mackey (M.Div.) to discuss the importance and magnitude of each individual person’s view of Jesus Christ. The most important answer you will ever give in your life is the answer you give to the most important question in the world: Who do you say Jesus is?
In this conversation, Mackey examines and unpacks a famous quote from C.S. Lewis wherein he made the claim that Jesus must be either a liar, a lunatic, or the Lord; there is no fourth option, neither is there a hybrid. You must either reject Jesus’ words or embrace them as absolute truth. We must either reject Jesus as having any value or we must worship Him, there is no middle ground option.
Mackey is a prominent motivational speaker and curriculum developer. He speaks to tens of thousands of students and educators each year. Mackey earned a B.S. from Texas A&M University and a Master of Divinity from Fuller Theological Seminary. Mackey is currently working on a Doctorate of Ministry, also at Fuller.
