Jesus Christ

JESUS WAS NEITHER a salesman nor a manipulator…

He was not trying to convince anyone to do anything.  Instead, Jesus focused on illuminating the truth about issues, events, questions, and concerns.

His words made it possible for his listeners to see the truth.

But what they did with that understanding was their choice.

Of course, he hoped that his listeners would make the right choices and decisions, but he did not try to coerce or manipulate them.

Rather, he focused a penetrating spotlight on false beliefs and life’s illusions.

This is why he claimed to be “the light of the world.”

Those who would follow him would “not walk in darkness, but have the light of life” (John 8:12John 8:12
English: American Standard Version (1901) - ASV

12 Again therefore Jesus spake unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in the darkness, but shall have the light of life.

Over and over again we see him exposing false values and revealing hidden truths.  Steven K. Scott, “A MESSAGE That Communicates, “The Greatest Man Who Ever Lived,” 104

“Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”  John 8:12John 8:12
English: American Standard Version (1901) - ASV

12 Again therefore Jesus spake unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in the darkness, but shall have the light of life.
