Jesus Christ has unmatched Moral influence. His life and teachings remain unsurpassed in their ability to guide cultures, and peoples out of moral confusion.
His artistic influence. He has inspired more of the world’s great art and music than any other person. Some of the greatest speeches and songs in history were written about Him. Bach signed all his works “Sola Dei Gloria” (latin for to God alone be the glory).
Jesus is unmatched in his Humanitarian influence. More hospitals, orphanages rest homes, and rescue missions have been dedicated to Him than to all other religious leaders combined. More efforts to help humanity have been founded, financed, and perpetuated by His followers than all others.
His educational influence. In America alone, 128 colleges were established in the first 100 yrs of the nations history; all were founded by a church or denomination. Harvard, Princeton, and Yale, which for 200 yrs served as the headwaters of American education, were created to prepare ministers, missionaries and Christian leaders. For the first hundred years of Harvard’s existence, every graduate became a minister of the gospel. The initial charter of Harvard stated,” Everyone shall consider the main end of his life and studies to know Jesus Christ which is eternal life. And therefore to lay Christ in the bottom, as the only foundation of all found knowledge and learning.”
