    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.

                  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.

                    When the days were approaching for His ascension, He was determined to go to Jerusalem; and He sent messengers on ahead of Him, and they went and entered a village of the Samaritans to make arrangements for Him. But they did not receive Him, because He was traveling toward Jerusalem. When His disciples James and John saw this, they said, "Lord, do You want us to command fire to come down from heaven and consume them?" But He turned and rebuked them, and said, "You do not know what kind of spirit you are of; for the Son of Man did not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them." And they went on to another village.

                      Is it wrong how some of these made me lol?
                      God is not a thing in the world.

                      If history has taught us anything, it's that science has always been wrong.

                      I thank God for shotguns.

                        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.

                                Take the topic above and run with it! Slice it, dice it, give us your general thoughts about it. Everyday there will be a new TOL Topic of the Day.
                                If you want to make suggestions for the Topic of the Day send a Tweet to @toldailytopic or @theologyonline or send it to us via Facebook.
                                He is walking amongst us in His people. Look at the response they get when presenting truth and you have the answer to the OP.
                                I know Him, correctly, as Messiah whom you call Christ. Yah Shua whom you call Jesus. Messianists who you call Christians.

                                "Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm".

                                I refuse, point blank, to speak peace to the unregenerate, hypocrites, religious dogma lovers and those that oppose the following statement:
                                A regenerate man trusts in the evangelism of salvation conditioned on the atoning blood and imputed justness of Messiah alone.
                                If you are fully persuaded, by experience, of this delightful, beautiful and life giving doctrine then I love you as a brother.

                                Anyone who thinks that salvation is conditioned on anything a man thinks, does or says is atheist. I cannot and will not speak peace to him or her.

                                I don't make statements online that I wouldn't repeat in front of my Maker, my grandmother or a judge.
