Jesus said, "I am the Truth.
Confucius said, "I never claimed to be holy."
Jesus said, "Who convicts me of sin?"
Mohammed said, "Unless God throws his cloak of mercy over me, I have no hope."
Jesus said, "Unless you believe in me, you will die in your sins." ~ unknown ~
"Fundamentally, our Lord's message was Himself. He did not come merely to preach a gospel. He himself is that Gospel. He did not come merely to give bread. He said, "I am the bread." He did not come merely to shed light. He said, "I am the light." He did not come merely to show the door, He said, "I am the door." He did come merely to name a shepherd; He said, "I am the shepherd." He did not come merely to point the way; He said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life." ~ J. Sidlow Baxter ~
"Jesus Christ. The meeting place of eternity and time,
