The Question of the Centuries : Some Sermons on Personal Relationship of the Disciple, to the Kingdom of Heaven (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Question of the Centuries: Some Sermons on Personal Relationship of the Disciple, to the Kingdom of Heaven It must, doubtless, be admitted that there are men in every community, and possibly there are some in this congregation, who have no definite convictions regarding Jesus Christ. It seems almost incredible that in a community of culture and Christianity men and women should be found who have not reached definite conclusions regarding the person and char acter of Christ. I put then the question to you with the utmost directness, What th'ink ye of the Christ? This is the broadest, deepest and loftiest question ever put to the human race. This is the question of all the ages. This question virtually engaged the thought of Abraham; it evoked a response from Moses; and it stirred the deepest emotions and loftiest praises of David as he swept his lyre and sang his immortal songs. My friend, the late Dr. Charles S. Robinson, once told me in his study, while we were discussing this text, that he asked a prominent business man what he thought of the Christ, and the man replied frankly, I suppose I 'never do think of Jesus Christ. Then Dr. Robinson inquired when he was born, and he gave the date, 1843. B. C. Or A. D? The doctor asked. The man remained silent in his confusion. Here was a man who had been dating letters for many years, and was thus commemorating the birth of Jesus Christ, and living in a world whose civilization is radiant with the glory of Christ, and yet he frankly acknowledged that he had no definite thoughts regarding this unique personage.
