Jesus Christ

Alexander, Caesar, Charlemagne, and myself founded empires; but what foundation did we rest the creations of our genius? Upon force. Jesus Christ founded an empire upon love; and at this hour millions of men would die for Him.

By a Carpenter mankind was made, and only by that Carpenter can mankind be remade.

A man who was completely innocent, offered himself as a sacrifice for the good of others, including his enemies, and became the ransom of the world. It was a perfect act.

You should point to the whole man Jesus and say, ''That is God.''

Thinking as I do that the Creator of this world is a very cruel being, and being a worshipper of Christ, I cannot help saying: ''the Son, O how unlike the Father!'' First God Almighty comes with a thump on the head. Then Jesus Christ comes with a balm to heal it.

William Blake (1757-1827) British poet and painter.

Jesus was all right, but his disciples were thick and ordinary. It's them twisting it that ruins it for me.

John Lennon (1940-1980) British musician.

We're more popular than Jesus Christ now. I don't know which will go first; rock and roll or Christianity.
