    Christ is already present among us. He is really and truly present, body and blood, and soul and divinity, in the Most Holy Eucharist. If you want to see our Lord, then go to the local Catholic church. He's very likely in the tabernacle.

    Given that, I can answer you exactly how He would be treated if He were among us (since He is, in fact, among us).

    Most don't believe. And even among so called "Christians," many mock, revile and blaspheme Him. Even many so called "Catholics" don't believe that He's really present either.

    And of those who do, some don't even go to visit Him. And of those who do, some only go once a week, to satisfy an obligation (I am guilty of this).

    Very few are those who actually center their lives on Him and go to visit Him often.

    I think right about now, the IRS could really use the good press.
    Global warming denialists are like gravity denialists piloting a helicopter, determined to prove a point. We may not have time to actually persuade them of their mistake.

    I would probably consider him a nut, along with the majorities of every single one of the other groups. But at least I'd be consistent.

    I think He's come again to afflict the comfortable, and comfort the afflicted. The Pharisees would be again outraged and call for His head.
    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.

    I have some experience of the adoration of the most holy eucharist and so I understand what you are saying here.

    Hold on though - the OP did say, "if he walked among us today", as he did 2,000 years ago. That is different.

    The current pope would probably attempt to have him disappeared.

    Pope fruity Francis would tell Jesus, "Who are you to judge gay priests with their boys?"

    He IS among the ekklesia. Either that or He lied, and He cannot lie.

    The world hates us, because it hated Him. The Master Y'shua was called very bad things, and so are His Disciples today.

    the catholics who are set free and truly love Yhwh and truth applaud Jesus' Word, as others did in Scriptrue, (look it up in the Gospel).
    Most of the churches hate Him, and would put Him to death / do put to death His Disciples when they are able to. Otherwise they ostracize them, kick them out, imprison them, ridicule them and torture them, when they can.
