    I can agree with that.

    That's what prayer is for.

    Did not read the entire OP, and only answered about Catholics. Protestants, maybe some if the best would know Him, Jews, same as before, Agnostics, I think some might turn around, and Atheists? Right????
    So, what?

    believe it!

    Exactly.


    Or maybe this demonstrates how you have damaged your witness.
    Interesting point, he is rejected unless he agrees with individuals.

    What went wrong that such a simple penalty delivered in the public square can't be returned or backed out off, many convicted to just go away, even after spending their entire life waking at morn an thinking of him. What government would this?

    Witness! Has to be right for the enjoyment of the deliver. Mind on him is not fool proof, such is the risk, you can easily turn?
    Just tell me what you want me to criticize! I want you to be happy<.

    he does walk among us today, on earth, and is not received by any of the religious gorups or scholars or mankind. only be a few anywheree, if any.

    Luke 14:13-33
    King James Version (KJV)
    13 But when thou makest a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind:
    14 And thou shalt be blessed; for they cannot recompense thee: for thou shalt be recompensed at the resurrection of the just.
    15 And when one of them that sat at meat with him heard these things, he said unto him, Blessed is he that shall eat bread in the kingdom of God.
    16 Then said he unto him, A certain man made a great supper, and bade many:
    17 And sent his servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden, Come; for all things are now ready.
    18 And they all with one consent began to make excuse. The first said unto him, I have bought a piece of ground, and I must needs go and see it: I pray thee have me excused.
    19 And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove them: I pray thee have me excused.
    20 And another said, I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come.
    21 So that servant came, and shewed his lord these things. Then the master of the house being angry said to his servant, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and the blind.
    22 And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room.
    23 And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.
    24 For I say unto you, That none of those men which were bidden shall taste of my supper.
    25 And there went great multitudes with him: and he turned, and said unto them,
    26 If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.
    27 And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.
    28 For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it?
    29 Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him,
    30 Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish.
    31 Or what king, going to make war against another king, sitteth not down first, and consulteth whether he be able with ten thousand to meet him that cometh against him with twenty thousand?
    32 Or else, while the other is yet a great way off, he sendeth an ambassage, and desireth conditions of peace.
    33 So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.

    If Christ walked among us today how would He be received by Catholics, Protestants, Jews, Agnostics, and Atheists?
    If I imagine Him here, and it is not the second coming, then that only leaves His first coming, and I cannot imagine the world without the last two thousand 13 years. We would all be pagan polytheists, perhaps? Or maybe Muslims, since there would have been no Christendom to repel them? At any rate, there certainly would not be Catholics and Protestants, so that leaves Jews, Agnostics and Atheists.

    Jews

    Rabbinical, devout Jews would receive Him as well as similar people did 19 hundred 80 years ago when they killed Him. Leading up to that, He would accuse them and prove to them, that they are without God, that they pursue righteousness through law keeping rather than through faith, that in their law keeping they keep the less weighty parts of the law but not the weightier parts, that they value their traditions over the Scripture, and that they value sacrifice but not mercy.

    Agnostics and Atheists

    Agnostics and Atheists would be convinced at His divinity. He would have billions of followers on twit-er. Every word from His mouth would be quotable and quoted. He would raise the dead and modern medicine and technology would verify the resurrections. He would walk on the sea. If He was visiting in New Orleans a little while ago, right before the levees broke, He would have quelled Katrina with His voice, satellite images would have shown the instant dispersal of the storm, and meteorologists reviewing the event for us would say, "That's when Israel's Joshua Davidovitch said, 'Be still.'" It would be such an overwhelmingly forceful display of unmistakable power, and so unique, something that would make the Angels and Copperfields of the world look like parlor tricksters, Agnostics and Atheists would cede to Him, no doubt.

    So True. And in truth, He'd be treated just the same way we are treated when we preach the Word. You're right. He'd be argued with and told He doesn't know the Bible like Calvin did, or He didn't understand we need to obey the commandments in order to be saved, or He was wrong for not worshipping Mary and praying to the saints. Yep, He'd be one of us FAITHERS who are called LIARS and COUCH POTATOES. I feel better already.

    Jesus saves completely. http://www.climatedepot.com/ http://www.thereligionofpeace.com/

    Titus 1

    For there are many insubordinate, both idle talkers and deceivers, especially those of the circumcision, whose mouths must be stopped

    Ephesians 5

    11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. 12 For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret

    OP remark

    Most would not know him.
    Psalm 1[/COLOR] and Job 28:28

    Rev 22:14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

    Joh 4:23 "But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers.

    I love the God of my Lord Jesus Christ

    Rusha - the OP is a trick question.

    Christ walks among us today, even now.

    At this moment He stands before you waiting for you to see Him.

    [QUOTE=Knight;3479578]The TheologyOnline.com TOPIC OF THE DAY for June 7th, 2013 05:00 AM


    toldailytopic: If Christ walked among us today how would He be received by Catholics, Protestants, Jews, Agnostics, and Atheists?



    Catholics - the majority would want to know what the Vatican was saying about him before they made up their minds

    Protestants - the "Evangelicals", (using that term in a broad sense), would want to know how every statement he made lined up with their own systems on Biblical interpretation before they made up their minds. Most "liberal" Protestants would be highly skeptical because skepticism is their stock-in-trade

    Jews - would want to see a verified genealogy before making up their minds

    Agnostics - possibly this is the group that would respond most positively overall?

    Atheists - "Just another New Age nutter!"

    Just because she's not looking doesn't mean she won't find Him. She came to where He is; who knows what might happen.
