    He will not fit their O.T. expectations. They will not recognize him.

    Kind of the way the Pharisees asked Jesus if it was proper to pay taxes to Caesar.

    They figured they had him, no matter how he answered. You guys haven't changed a bit in 2000 years.
    Let's say that I suffer from a delusion. I will call this delusion "Fact-check Syndrome." I respond by citing facts.

    Most people online don't want to be corrected. They do not care about anything that does not agree with them.

    Glad to see the Battle Royale is still being encouraged.

    There are still those today who would want Christ to be a political king who would smite all their enemies.

    But He'd still be sitting down to eat with the tax collector, talking to the woman at the well, telling us about the good Samaritan and giving the sermon on the mount - all the things he did to show us how to love.

    And would He, the Shepherd searching for the lost sheep, be telling his followers to condemn others to Hell and rejoice in the idea of their burning?

    Hmm... let's see...

    John 8:7 When therefore they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said to them: He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. [8] And again stooping down, he wrote on the ground. [9] But they hearing this, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest. And Jesus alone remained, and the woman standing in the midst. [10] Then Jesus lifting up himself, said to her: Woman, where are they that accused thee? Hath no man condemned thee?

    [11] Who said: No man, Lord. And Jesus said: Neither will I condemn thee. Go, and now sin no more.


    Refusing to condemn, yes. "Sin all you like", no.

    That's not even close to the same thing. One is accepting God's will for the person in that moment, and hoping for grace to grow a planted seed.

    The other is an active enjoyment of the thought of someone being eternally damned.

    That's not in scripture

    rather, enjoying watching the wicked receive their just punishments according to God

    Yes. Probably THE one to claim such.

    I'd enjoy watching a few people burn in hell, problem is I don't trust the authority of an invisible man to arbitrate (even arbitrarily) - but it goes quite a lot further than that, I wouldn't be able to acquiesce to a deity that would expect me to endure the suffering of good people for eternity. But I'm just a "moral relativist", what would I know?

    Which would be everyone at some point in their lives, only not, when they have received Christ because then they have taken on His righteousness.

    Can you name someone Christ "hung out" with, who continued to be a "notorious sinner" after they received Him?

    Not much has changed since then, really.
    Actually Christ admonished them for not following the scriptures and heeding them. He even said more times than could be counted "as it is written" and made a point to show them how prophecy concerning Him was being fulfilled.

    Mark 12:24 Jesus said to them, "Is this not the reason you are mistaken, that you do not understand the Scriptures or the power of God?

    John 5:45 45 Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father. There is one who accuses you: Moses, on whom you have set your hope. 46 For if you believed Moses, you would believe me; for he wrote of me. 47 But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe my words?

    He would be largely rejected. Many would argue with him, stating: that's not what the Bible says, and He would have to point out to them that it actually does.

    They would say, "But you said..." And He would respond, "No I didn't."

    what - you think people have fundamentally changed in the past 2000 years?

    We're living in the new Rome, baby!
    Exactly.

    It's possible
