What Would You Do If..........
    #4564390 - 08/21/05 10:41 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

There was a breaking news report on every channel on TV saying there was a guy in the middle east (or somewhere) claiming to be Jesus and he was performing miracles. And they had it on camera. And the guy just happened to look like the Jesus we all know (long hair, beard, etc.). The news report is real, no joke, and they are showing this guy do things which are unexplainable. But it's right there before your eyes. Then he gets on camera on a mic and says to "follow him, he is the way, etc." What would you do?

Interesting conundrum. I seriously think we would end up killing him again.

I think so too. People would think he was some kind of magician or sorcerer or something. It wouldn't last long. The media would eventually portray him this way. I doubt they would say "This man appears to really be Jesus! Ladies and gentleman, it's the real deal!" How could anyone believe it unless they saw it for themselves?

I don't trust anything I see on tv so 'Jesus' would just have to teleport or fly to my house for a personal demonstration. But he'd have to give me a better reason to follow him than being rewarded with a few magical abilities.

So what if he did something that was so unexplainable that he had to actually be Jesus to do it? Would you follow him and his teachings?

Call the US government...they would probably do a bunch of 'scientific studies' on him or put him in a zoo.

I don't know what I'd do...I suppose I would drink a cup of coffee or go about my day as usual.

If he had anything useful to say, I'd listen and then think about what he said.

What if everyone really started believing this guy was the real deal but you were still skeptical? The government had already talked to him as well.

Then I would know it was all just a big joke and everyone fell for it, including me. But seriously. If everyone around you left and right was actually starting to believe this "Jesus" guy, and you yourself starting thinking, "wait, what if?". I don't know, it just seems like it would never happen these days, so it makes me wonder how people think it ever really did happen.........

But would following his teachings eventually allow me to do the same unexplainable acts? Plenty of people have followed his teachings without being able to do anything amazing, so what's the point? Being able to do a couple of tricks in this world won't convince me of his connection to a spiritual realm. I'd probably just go about my business, follow my own path and let this Jesus 2.0 continue turning rocks into gold.

No you wouldn't be able to do them as well, it would only be "proof" he was really Jesus, resurrected. And if it was really Jesus, everything the prophets wrote about him in the bible must be true, so then why wouldn't you follow him and his teachings? I would. Then again I'm not sure....

Not really trying to get at anything. It was just a "what if" question to get some responses. I would want to hear him out as well. But if he was doing things right before my eyes that are unexplainable, like parting some sea, there is not much you could say. This person must be God in a human form....

What if I imploded into my asshole tomorrow morning?

We can play "what if" all day long, and it seems that most people like doing that.
