Jesus and his defect in moral character

Best Blogger Tips

Monday, 3 May 2010

You very rarely hear anyone criticising Jesus Christ for having a flawed moral character but here is a quote from Betrand Russell. Is this a flaw? Was Christ actually immoral for believing in this?

“There is one very serious defect to my mind in Christ’s moral character, and that is that He believed in hell.”
Betrand Russell

Of course, as an atheist, Bertrand Russell is comparing Jesus' moral character to exactly which absolute moral standard? In other words, flaws only exist when one can compare to an "unflawed" version.

Thanks for the comment. Yes, to make such a comparison he must be comparing him to a mind without defects. Still interesting to hear someone talking openly about defects in Christ's moral character.
