    Most of those things on your list were present in one form or another in Jesus' time. For instance, Obama and Trump would be analogous to the Pharisees, the pope would be a member of the Sanhedrin, the Muslims are analogous to the Samaritans, HIV = leprosy, etc.

    Jesus would do no more today than what he did his first time around. The issues you listed are for us to figure out within the constructs of his teachings.

    Ultimately, Jesus is not concerned with earthly things. He is concerned about your eternal salvation. As far as he's concerned these things will end. Your soul, however, he considered eternal.

    He'd tell a parable ... remember the one about he good Samaritan?

    He came to deliver a message, not so much to interfere with humanity ... they are left up to their free will

    Jesus didn't come to save the physical world ( war, poverty, homeless, gun violence ) in fact his teaching declare the world would become worse - the bible has even predicted "global warming" amongst other things.
    Jesus was not a political figure, he would have no say on gay marriage in a secular world - in a Christian setting he would say it is not feasible.
    The pope is a man made office who leads a false religion, so Jesus would have much to say on that , namely , the blind leading the blind.
    His concern is the salvation of the soul and the kingdom to come , not the body or this present world .

    I agree. The man-made maladies that afflict our world are entirely of our doing doing; racism, bigotry, hatred, pollution of the environment, greed, etc. We have been given gifts and talents which are intended to raise up humanity if we choose to do so. We can choose goodness and love, or self-serving paths which benefit the few and ignore the majority.

    Our salvation is a gift, something which we cannot earn, but we can choose to participate in salvation history by following the His teachings. Refer to Matthew 5:1-48 and Luke 6:20-49.

    He would say that everyone who came before him was wrong and start his own cult, just like the last Jesus, and the one before that.

    Messiah complex: know the signs.

    And this time with social media he woulld be mega-successful very fast, with millions of devotees in a short time.

    With no solutions to OP's list, just like last time, just like every modern radical or firebrand or prophet. But the followers would be oh so passionate and make a terrible noise.

    In terms of how Jesus would deal with the OP's specific issues, my guess is that there would be a combination of praying for salvation from sin and a 1960s give-peace-a-chance-and-give-up-your-guns love fest, with public flogging for anything that goes against PETA.

    Jesus? Sounds like Trump would deport him.

    It would depend on which 'Jesus' and what time frame you are referring to icon_confused.gif


    Quexalcoati
    Mithra
    Esus
    Thammuz
    Buddha
    Krishna
    Odysseus
    Romulus
    Dionysus
    Heracles
    Glycon
    Zoroaster/Zarathustra
    Attis of Phrygia
    Horus

    Controversial and explosive, The Christ Conspiracy marshals an enormous amount of startling evidence that the religion of Christianity and Jesus Christ were created by members of various secret societies, mystery schools and religions in order to unify the Roman Empire under one state religion! This powerful book maintains that these groups drew upon a multitude of myths and rituals that already existed long before the Christian era and reworked them into the story the Christian religion presents today-known to most Westerners as the Bible.

    Author Acharya makes the case that there was no actual person named Jesus, but that several characters were rolled into one mythic being inspired by the deities Mithras, Heracles/Hercules, Dionysus and many others of the Roman Empire. She demonstrates that the story of Jesus, as portrayed in the Gospels, is nearly identical in detail to those of the earlier savior-gods Krishna and Horus, and concludes that Jesus was certainly neither original nor unique, nor was he the divine revelation. Rather, he represents the very ancient body of knowledge derived from celestial observation and natural forces. A book that will initiate heated debate and inner struggle, it is intelligently written and referenced. The only book of its kind, it is destined for controversy.
