If you were Jesus

    Suppose a member of the PF community turns out to be the messiah in his second coming. (That includes atheists!) Suppose you have your relevation and everything... What would you do? What would you preach? Or would you do nothing?

    I would doubt.

    I would doubt myself very much too...I might even try to kill myself.

    I suppose if I truely turned out to be Jesus in his second coming, first of all I would hope I would know and not "figure it out" on my own , but I would ask dad/myself/holy spirit what to do, and I would read the Bible for more direction. Then I would preach whatever I felt necessary.

    Wine, anyone?

    Breaded fish sticks?

    Care for a stroll across the Channel?

    "Did you hear that voice"?!

    "I don't know what all you people did, but consider yourselves forgiven."

    "There's that voice again... did you hear it!?"

    FZ+, seriously, I'd start a band, obviously... a really good one... expressing multiplicity in learning... we'd "do" the world... we'd take off where the beatles failed... this would be one very cool tour.

    Re: Re: If you were Jesus...

    What would be the price of admission?

    If I were Jesus, hmmm, I suppose this means that God does in fact exist and that I am he, but he is greater than I, but that we are one, etc. Well, here is what I might likely preach;

    “Believe not because some old manuscripts are produced, believe not because it is your national belief, believe not because you have been made to believe from your childhood, but reason truth out, and after you have analyzed it, then if you find it will do good to one and all, believe it, live up to it and help others to live up to it.” - Siddhartha Gautama (circa 563/483 BCE)

    If I was jesus, from the bible as is depicted now days, I think the first thing I'd do is go kick dad in the nuts for being such an ass.

    After that, I'd probably cruise back to earth, via the Jesus 1, and start a cult.

    Heh, reminds me of a bumper sticker I seen today:

    "Jesus for Governor"

    Okay, I've read all these posts. I first thought was that they all are redundant. He did all of those thing the first time and least figuritively didn't he. No he did not start a musical or rock band and literally tour the world but he did form a band of followers and toured his world at the time.
    To answer the question. I would, if I were Jesus having come back, tell the Truth, the whole Truth and nothing but the Truth; and, prove it to all that is is the Truth so that at last we could know, really KNOW, the Truth.

    no way

    yeah, but what if no one believes you?
    are you going to walk over water?
    good luck

    oh no, I reviewed this thread, and nowhere in it did anyone say they were gonna kick god in the nuts.

    Does god have nuts?

    After having "revelations", I'd check myself into an institution and demand some drugs.

    Tssssss. Don't tell anyone, but I AM the resurrection of the Messiah, but I am trying to keep it a secret, since I know what happened the first time!!!!!
