    I feel like every post in this forum is basically asking for Christian Theology 101.

    Assuming Gandhi actually said that, it's clear he didn't care much for what Christ said.

    And that's true of most people today ... the folks who say things like "I think Jesus was a great man / an amazing moral teacher / etc". They seem to forget that he made incredibly bold claims about himself.

    "I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him: I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept his claim to be God. That is the one thing we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic — on the level with the man who says he is a poached egg — or else he would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman or something worse. You can shut him up for a fool, you can spit at him and kill him as a demon or you can fall at his feet and call him Lord and God, but let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about his being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.”
