What if Jesus did come back?

According to revelation, Jesus will come back again in the last day what they call “the last judgment”. I know atheist don’t believe in such. But, what if Jesus did come back and everything in the revelation happens. Where will you be and what will you do?

I guess I will be getting in line for the complaint offices to ask why he would allow the world to go to hell like it has. Kind of a sick experiment if you ask me.

I would have to get in line for that complaints office to get a ticket too.....

i would tell him what a shitty job he and his father have been doing for the last 2000 years.

What if he tells the atheists

What if he tells the atheists that he already gave the bible and the religion to explain everything and that faith is all he needs from us to believe?

I would ask about the overwhelming amount of the inconsistencies in the bible and the fact that his supposed father gave us reason. Why would he give it to us if we aren't to use it?

I'd also like to point out that we would hold this supposed "Jesus" up to the same scientific standard we base the rest of the world on, to determine if he really is who he says he is.

Well, just because I'm an

Well, just because I'm an atheist doesn't mean I don't believe in ghosts. So Jesus is welcome to come back at any time :)

As a matter of fact, I have a very good friend named Jesus, and if there were a vote for Second Savior, he'd certainly have mine!

Ok, I'm done being a snark :)

Even if every biblical prophecy did come true, there could still be an alternate reason for the "truth", subduing it to the level of coincidence. For example, the Egyptians, nearly a millenia before Moses, were already on the level of being able to reliably predict tides, and floods, and understood their connection to the lunar patterns and astronomical events. However, they took their massive understanding and hinged it upon the journey of the God Osiris. Does it make their information less accurate? Not really, as they were able to plan an industrious civilization upon the information, and rarely reported an error. Does that mean that Osiris is truly the carrier of the Moon? Hell no!

In the sciences we say - Correlation does not equal causality.

First of all, unless this

First of all, unless this returned Jesus was able to show an incredible display of godly power, its very unlikely that he'd get much attention. Most of the people who go around saying "I am the son of God" or "I am Jesus Christ, returned to the Earth to herald the rapture" end up in a room with soft walls, and get a fetching jacket. Without undeniable proof, he would be either ignored, or committed to an asylum. Secondly, there is every chance that the Catholic church would "invite" him to the vatican, where, after getting proof that he is god's son, they would either contain him in order to use him as a weapon against other religions, or they would try to destroy him, because I'm sure he'd have a lot to say that would put the church in the shitter.

In fact, if you could prove that he was real, there is every chance that it would ignite violence across the planet. Riots in every city. Wars between every country. I know Jesus was supposed to have some pretty cool superpowers, but I don't think he could compete with human nature's capacity to turn anything into an excuse for war.

If God came to tell us that we should have believed in him, because he put the Bible on the Earth and gave mankind religion, I'd make every attempt to shove the Bible up his arse for screwing with us so much. Is it fair to give us a book filled with inconsistencies, which we know has been poorly translated across hundreds of years, with priests who are supposed to be god's presence on Earth, who end up sodomising children, and a Church which takes millions upon millions of dollars out of every economy it enters, and give us religious zealots who do incredibly stupid, cruel, ignorant and selfish things, and expect us to believe that he just SAT THERE AND LET IT HAPPEN? HE, WHO CLAIMS TO BE ALL-KNOWING AND POWERFUL, WHO COULD END ALL OUR SUFFERING WITH NO EFFORT AT ALL! I would tell him to send me to hell, because any being that could willingly do that should never have the respect of anyone with even the slightest intelligence. There is no room in this world for a cruel god. Humanity is cruel enough to each other. God can fuck right off

You have shared with us many

You have shared with us many good points, some I didn't even think of. Mostly the part about humans being the warmongers that we are, turning the world upside down at the coming of christ.

TRue, there's whole psych wards full of people claiming to be Jesus, and no one pays much mind to them.

According to the revelation

According to the revelation in the bible, Jesus will return in such a way that earth and sky will be shaken and tremble to show the power of god. If this will happen then no one will think of war but instead worry that it will be the end of earth. No one or even the Vatican can capture Jesus if he is surrounded with angels and fire. I think when that happens, most unbelievers will repent and believe.

I think if Jesus did come

I think if Jesus did come back to Earth, he would be persecuted just as he was in the past and possibly by his own people for allowing certain tragedies and events to take place.

Well I guess I would be come

Well I guess I would be come an instant believer about the the bit of him being the son of god and coming back to judge the living and the dead or undead or whatnot, but still not be faithful meaning I did not believe him to be the son of god before seeing it, heck even if I did I still would not be a believer in the trinity so by both standards I'd be screwed, and I would await my judgement. Honestly, I would point out that since his father was supposedly all knowing he knew what I would do before I was created and the whole freewill argument should be thrown out the window. I would further argue that what is happiness without some degree of suffering, just bliss boring being content with no will, longing or desire, simply being one with the lord? WTF I believe people get used to certain degrees of suffering I also mainly believe in energy a life force so reincarnation is not off the table for me. If I were welcomed into heaven I would probably stay put and politely decline unless every living being plant and animal was also welcomed and then still I might decline even still though it might be the stupidest thing I ever did. What if the joke is on all of us and he came long ago the good people went to heaven and the rest of us stayed on earth? who cares honestly from what I understand I would have to give up a lot to be happy with heaven and I would not be willing to give up everything I have here and be some vegetable knowing its all good as long as I have God while I know people and things I care about continue to live on and suffer here on earth. And even after seeing him I would probably still have my doubts.

And I saw heaven opened, and

And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. and he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called the Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations; and he shall rule them with a rod of iron; and he treadeth the winepress of the fiersness and wrath of Almighty God. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS......And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.....Sure sounds like war to me.

You know...If you want to be

You know...If you want to be on the winning side of a debate with Christians, you should really read their bible. It gives you a huge advantage over them.

Well, today's Bible thumpers

Well, today's Bible thumpers would lynch him as a smelly hippie communist. But assuming we saved him from that extreme, I would sit him down with a Bible and have him read the Gospels -- after he finished rolling on the floor laughing, he would stop and explain what he really said and did.

We are in the magic land of

We are in the magic land of "Whatif" once again. Wow! Loads of imagination today. Unfortunately I have some bad news for you. Jesus is late for the show, the limo has left and now he is all alone. Either that, or he is a liar. (Matthew 24:34) "This GENERATION shall not PASS AWAY till all these things be fulfilled." Jesus lied! WHATIF Jesus actually told the truth.

Another Lazarus thread!

I reckon if Jesus came back he'd sue for libel.

If everything in Revelation

If everything in Revelation happened, Jesus should be put on trial for crimes against humanity. The ICC doesn't have the death penalty, but I guess that doesn't make any difference to him.

If Jesus came back, I'd like

If Jesus came back, I'd like to see him appear on an episode of "Penn & Teller: Fool Us." I figure he could also start doing tours with Chris Angel and David Blaine.

Either that, or he is likely gonna be standing at the top of an interstate off-ramp holding a sign that says, "Will do miracles for food."

The cops would probably pull him over and beat him to death before anyone ever noticed that he was back. Cops are just like that these days. Especially if you have long hair, are wearing a toga, and anything you say is Greek to them.

Nonsense. The Law is for the protection of the people...

So is Christianity! Believe or die! Perhaps we really are a Christian nation?

Re: "So is Christianity! Believe or die!"

Well no. You still die. It's believe or burn eternally, Cog. Infinite punishment for finite sins, remember?

OK here is my fantasy

OK here is my fantasy scenario for the second coming of
Christ and the judgment day.

All are resurrected from the dead to stand before the
Great White Throne Judgment. (Hmmmmm! Sounds
like a big toilet to me, and all full of crap!) Yeah! All
the dead, from all the ages.

Think of all who died tortured to death, burned at the
stake, during The Inquisition, all those millions of
innocent people wrongly executed, in the name of
Jesus! Giordano Bruno is there, who was burned at
the stake in 1600. Galileo is there, who was put under
house arrest for the remainder of his life. If he were
living today, he would become an atheist. His church
turned against him.

I don't think it would go very well for Jesus at all. We
would all go charging up those golden stairs up to
his throne, and drag him down the stairs, and kick
the holy shit outta him!

We all would take over Heaven, and say unto Jesus
"depart from us thou cursed"!!!

Then Satan will join us, and set up a bar, and we all
belly up to the bar drinking beer, and then Satan
passes out the cigars and we all have a great time!

Hail Satan!!!

Didn't they already make a series of movies about this?

I think it was called Resident Evil?

I don't think he was even

I don't think he was even real in the first place. He is just a fantasy character, since there's not a trace of historicity about his existence ( Dr. Richard Carrier has a lot to say about this). So the question for me is as crazy as if you ask for the second coming of Aphrodite, Thor or Ra.
