    He would definitely be rejected by the religious leaders and the majority of people just like in His first advent and would be crucified all over again.
    No man can come to God except through Christ. (Jn. 14:20)
    No man can come to Christ unless he comes through the Cross. (Jn. 3:16; Eph. 2:13–18)
    No man can come to the Cross without a denial of self. (Lk. 9:23–24)

    B. They would say he's a 'prude' that wants the spoil the natural 'fun' that people want to have.

    Matthew 5:27-29 -
    27 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:
    28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.
    29 And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.

    C. They would claim He has a bad temper.

    Matthew 21:12-14 -
    12 And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves,
    13 And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.
    14 And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple; and he healed them.

    And the media would completely ignore or hide what He just did after He drove out the shysters.
    Once in awhile, I agree with IK. And the Lord Jesus Christ would not "blink" re. "banning" a wolf, viper, serpent, devil.........


    And, speaking of banning, vote for me, John W, as "MOD for the Day."

    aCW would bear false witness against Jesus and call Him "pro-gay" for not condemning homosexuals and for eating with sinners.

    Knight would ban Jesus for being "unnecessarily disruptive."

    You would have to go to the local synagogue and ask them.


    But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect. 1 Peter 3:15 (NIV)
    Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth. 2 Tim 2:15 (NIV)
    For this very reason, make every effort by your faith to produce virtue, by virtue knowledge, 6 by knowledge self-control, by self-control steadfastness, by steadfastness godliness, 7 by godliness brotherly affection, and by brotherly affection love. 8 For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will make you effective and productive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Peter 1:5-8 (NIV)

    Folks would choke on His "Go and sin no more" statements. He befriended sinners, but He didn't condone their behavior. There is a world of difference between loving someone and loving their actions.

    I too believe that if Jesus were to post on TOL, he would either be told he wasn't saved, or that He didn't know how to "rightly divide".

    Jesus told Peter to put his sword back in its place, then said to Peter: "live by the sword, die by the sword".

    If we substitute "sword" with "gun", how would Jesus fit in with all you NRA people?

    That was not a universal pronouncement.
    The LORD was simply telling those who were with Him that night, that if they sought to defend Him and themselves with a sword that they would die at the hands of the soldiers who had come to get Him.

    How do you know it wasn't universal?

    Where in the NT does Jesus, Peter, John, Paul, or anyone else advocate killing their enemies?

    If it was a universal truth, then everyone who has ever used a sword since that time, would die by a sword. Do you really believe this has happened?

    "he would either be told he wasn't saved"-Tet.

    Have you ever told anyone that they were not saved, based upon their testimony? If not, why not? And none of this "Well, I'm not Jesus.....Paul...." satanic jazz, per the below.......

    "I'm sure she believes in her heart that she knows the truth about the word of God, and I'm sure you think the same thing. Each of you believes that you are "assured" that you know the truth. So how do you convince her you are right, or how does she convince you she is right?One of you is right, and one of you is wrong, and each of you are 100% sure the other is wrong. So what do you do?... . I just don't understand… Yes, John, but you are not Paul, and none of us are able to determine what “Sound” doctrine is since it is subjective....... You John W are not an apostle, and may or may not be inspired by God the Holy Spirit as to what the objective truth of the Bible is.Therefore, when I say “You are not Paul”, it does not mean that we are not supposed to abide by Paul’s epistles, it means that YOU are unable, on your own, to know which believer is speaking the objective truth of God’s word, and which believer is speaking the subjective truth of God’s word.”-Tet.


    If you have not, then just what is your function, Chip, on this graveyard, and on TOL?


    Let me guess:


    "I am not here to teach, instruct, evangelize, or advise anyone."-Tet.

    They would be trouble by it.
    "And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship and in breaking of bread and in prayers." Acts 2:42

    "Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind" Philippians 2:2

    Pro scripture = Protestant

    Jesus was speaking proverbially.

    If I say: "Practice makes perfect", it doesn't mean that everyone who has ever practiced something became perfect at it.

    I believe He was speaking to His disciple's immediate welfare.

    We disagree.

    What else is new?
