    I am sure the Biblical god character welcomes them with open arms as it is the gangster in chief.

    Picture Texas with Florida weather, poor education systems and the only Democrat safezones having high crime rates.

    Picture of evangelist that faced controversy--the police caught up to him and gave him his due.

    Charged with drunkedness, inciting public anger, having large meetings with his cohorts without permission, and a litany of other charges (although it is said it was never proven)

    Having never been to the US, I don't know much about those places only where they are on the map.

    So if Jesus came back to Earth, and didn't come in the way described in Revelation, I was wondering... would you think it's him?

    No. There are many who have come saying "I am Jesus, I have returned" but it isn't him.

    I see. But what if the described way he comes back is meant to be taken metaphorically rather than literally?

    Like Jesus was crucified with the robbers, the pious and the impure go the same way, into the grave and turn into dust. Nature treats them the same way.

    Yes, that is another viewpoint.

    But, for me, it goes contrary to what was described:

    Acts 1:11 They also said, “the sky? This Jesus, who has been taken up from you into heaven, will come in just the same way as you have watched Him go into heaven.”

    Matt 16: 27 For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.

    John 14:3a And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself

    So, as i see it, it is a literal return.

    Yes, that is a position that many hold on to.

    Even if you believe in the Bible, it says that the day of the Lord comes as a thief in the night and other verses speak of people not recognizing him.
