The World – Napoleon on Jesus Christ, September 26, 2021

“I know men, and I tell you Jesus Christ was no mere man.
Superficial minds see a resemblance between Christ and the founders of empires and the gods of other religions. That resemblance does not exist.
There is between Christianity and other religions the distance of infinity.
Alexander, Caesar, Charlemagne, and myself founded empires.
But upon what did we rest the creations of our genius? Upon force.

Jesus Christ alone founded his empire upon love;
and at this hour millions of men would die for him.”

Napoleon Bonaparte, Sainte Helena
