MOUNT VERNON—“Is Jesus God or a good person?” This is the question that Rev. Karl Hay based his sermon around during Brewton-Parker’s chapel service on Tuesday, April 9. Hay is the pastor of First Baptist Church of Mount Vernon, Ga., and a Brewton-Parker Board of Trustees member. He based his message off of the passage where Jesus asks his own disciples this question, which starts in Matthew 16:13.

Hay began his sermon by explaining C. S. Lewis’ “tri-lemma.” This sequence of logic ultimately states that Jesus was who he said he was, the son of God, that he was insane, or that he was an anti-Christ. A sane person, Hay went on to explain, does not say the things that Jesus did. If one agrees that Jesus was sane, the only remaining options are to either believe that he was telling the truth, or that he was intentionally lying.

Hay then ran through several examples of Biblical characters testifying that Jesus was God, including Nathaniel, John, and Paul. Hay concluded his sermon by saying, “Are the things of this world more important to us than a man named Jesus? What matters is making a decision on the answer to this question ‘is Jesus God, or just a good person?’”

Hay also played his guitar during the worship session of the service. Tuesday’s chapel was the eleventh of fourteen chapel services the spring semester.
