I understand some people wanting to be “tactful” but please don’t ever say that Jesus was a “great teacher” but not the “Son of God”. Jesus explicitly taught that He was the Son of God. If you believe this is not true then you must believe that Jesus was either: a) a liar; b) a madman; or c) a fool. Unfortunately, “great teacher” is not an option. To say this is, quite frankly, very condescending to those who believe.
God is not here to be demanded of, begged from, or criticized. He hands out burdens to those who are strong enough to carry them, and I feel profoundly uncomfortable with the idea of lining up with the other invalids and asking for mine to be alleviated.
