We know Jesus Christ. We honor him. He never said: “I am God.” He said: “I am the son of God.” Everyone is not God. We are all children of God; eternal servants of God. We must follow this. If you want to be happy, you will have to adopt the theory of our scriptures.
Do you know why we honor Jesus Christ? He has adopted Kṛṣṇa as the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Where has this word Christ come from? He came to India and went to Jagannātha Purī and heard the glory of Kṛṣṇa—that Kṛṣṇa is Jagannātha. But in Orissa the word Kṛṣṇa is pronounced “Krushnā” and others pronounce it as “Christus” and in English you say “Christ.” If you think that we are sons and daughters and eternal servants of Kṛṣṇa, then you may be happy by chanting His name:
Hare Kṛṣṇa Hare Kṛṣṇa Kṛṣṇa Kṛṣṇa Hare Hare
Hare Rāma Hare Rāma Rāma Rāma Hare Hare
