Was Jesus a Lunatic?
If it is inconceivable for Jesus to be a liar, then couldn’t He actually have thought Himself to be God, but been mistaken? After all, it’s possible to be both sincere and wrong.
But we must remember that for someone to think himself, God, especially in a fiercely monotheistic culture, and then to tell others that their eternal destiny depended on believing in him, is no light flight of fantasy but the thoughts of a lunatic in the fullest sense.
Was Jesus Christ, such a person?
Was Jesus Lord?
I cannot personally conclude that Jesus was a liar or a lunatic. The only other alternative is that He was the Christ, the Son of God, as He claimed.
When I discuss this with most Jewish people, it’s interesting how they respond. They usually tell me that Jesus was a moral, upright, religious leader, a good man, or some kind of prophet. I then share with them the claims Jesus made about Himself and then this material on the trilemma (liar, lunatic, or Lord).
When I ask if they believe Jesus was a liar, there is a sharp “No!” Then I ask, “Do you believe He was a lunatic?” The reply is, “Of course not.” “Do you believe He is God?” Before I can get a breath in edgewise, there is a resounding, “Absolutely not.” One has only so many choices. The issue with these three alternatives is not which is possible, for it is obvious that all three are possible. Rather, the question is, “Which is more probable?” Who you decide Jesus Christ is must not be an idle intellectual exercise. You cannot put Him on the shelf as a great moral teacher. That is not a valid option.
He is either a liar, a lunatic, or Lord, and God. You must make a choice.
“But,” as the apostle, John wrote, “these have been written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and” ‑ more important ‑ “that believing you might have life in His name” (John 20:31). The evidence is clearly in favor of Jesus as Lord. Some people, however, reject this clear evidence because of moral implications involved. They don’t want to face up to the responsibility or implications of calling Him Lord.

Who is Jesus?
Jesus: Was he God or Just a Good Man or was Jesus a Liar?
If, when Jesus made His claims, He knew that He was not God, then He was lying and deliberately deceiving His followers. But if He was a liar, then He was also a hypocrite because He told others, to be honest, whatever the cost, while He taught and lived a colossal lie. More than that, He was a demon because He told others to trust Him for their eternal destiny. If He couldn’t back up His claims and knew it, then He was unspeakably evil.
Last, He would also be a fool because it was His claims to being God that led to His crucifixion. Many will say that Jesus was a good moral teacher. Let’s be realistic. How could He be a great moral teacher and knowingly mislead people at the most important point of His teaching ‑- His own identity? You would have to conclude logically that He was a deliberate liar. This view of Jesus, however, doesn’t coincide with what we know either of Him or the results of His life and teachings.
Wherever Jesus has been proclaimed, lives have been changed for the good, nations have changed for the better, thieves are made honest, alcoholics are cured, hateful individuals become channels of love, unjust persons become just.

Facts about Jesus but who is Jesus Christ?
Most people know that Jesus was a man who lived in Israel about 2000 years ago. Every religion in the world views Jesus as a good teacher or a prophet. And while those things are most definitely sure of Jesus, they do not explain who Jesus truly is, and they do not explain how or why Jesus saves. Jesus is God in human form John 1:1, 14. Jesus is God come to Earth as a true human being 1 John 4:2. God became a human being, in the person of Jesus, to save us.
