If a man would follow, today, the teachings of the Old Testament, he would be a criminal. If he would follow strictly the teachings of the New, he would be insane.

— Robert G. Ingersoll

If Christ should appear on earth he would on all hands be denounced as a mistaken, misguided man, insane and crazed.

— Henry David Thoreau, The Living Thoughts of Henry David Thoreau

When a man says he is Jesus, he is not complaining; he is boasting. We consider his claim a symptom of illness; he considers it a stamp of greatness.

— Thomas Szasz, The Untamed Tongue, 1990
