Lord or lunatic

"Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven ... Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord ... then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart" - Matthew 7:22
Some teach Jesus thought of himself only as a good man trying to do the right thing and hoping in the future; that it was, really, his disciples who came to the conclusion Jesus was the divine Son of God.

But Jesus firmly believed in his own Lordship and proclaimed it would be He who decides at the end of the age those entering God's Kingdom. What kind of a man proclaims that? Either the Lord or a lunatic. The "just a good man" theory isn't even on the table.

Paul writes
He remains true (faithful to His Word and His righteous character), for He cannot deny Himself. - 2nd Timothy 2:13b (amplified)
