The character of Jesus.has exerted so deep an influence
that it may be truly said
that the simple record of his three short years of active life
has done more to regenerate and soften mankind
than all the disquisitions of philosophers
and the exhortations of moralists.

William Lecky

Jesus is the rosetta stone in the language of love.

The Lord works from the inside out.
The world works from the outside in.
The world would take people out of the slums.
Christ takes the slums out of people,
and then they take themselves out of the slums.
The world would mold men by changing their environment.
Christ changes men, who then change their environment.
The world would shape human behavior,
but Christ can change human nature.
