2 Jesus Christ Jesus Christ

I think, I'm well within the mark when I say
That all of the armies that ever marched
All of the navies that ever sailed the seas
All of the legislative bodies that ever sat
And all of the kings that ever reigned
All of them put together have not affected
The life of man on this earth
So powerfully as that one solitary life

Here was a man

I believe Jesus Christ is the greatest man in history. Atheists may argue this out, but fact is fact and truth is truth; blind scientists may say there is no proof of this, but we believe in many things we have no proof of.

Jesus is the holy one, he should be number one, the Son of God and the almighty Messiah.

Jesus Christ Is God,He is the Son of God.
