Would Jesus be welcome in your church or would He be judged as a radical trouble

    Would Jesus be welcome in your church or would He be judged as a radical troublemaker?

    Pointing out that He was homeless, had basic clothing, no money to tithe and helped the lost of the world.

    For the the answer is YES and NO. Yes because the practice in most churches today is against Christ. You can visibly see the spirit of Anti Christ as work. We're enjoined to test every spirit to see if it is the spirit of God.  You cannot have the spirit of God and not conform to the teachings of Christ. If anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ  he is none of His. The Scripture cannot  be broken.
    If what we are practicing in our churches is becoming too comfortable and everyone is having the feel good syndrome; then we have to watch it. Jesus cam to move us outside our comfort zone. Every church must challenge their practice continually. "Lest anyone who thinks he is standing take heed lest he falls. We need to remember that the church is not the building but the people of God - you and i who have repented fro their sins and choose to live new live by faith in the redemptive work of Jesus Christ in the cross. It's a life of faith - faith working through love. God is all and in  all.

    No because most churches are roped under the influence of denominational spirit. The this is how we do it syndrome. If it doesn't offend anybody just do it. You know what. Just like in the temple of Jerusalem if Jesus were to be here bodily present, He will do exactly what He did about 2000 years ago before Hie death. Literally drive them away from the temple; or should I say the church building..

    I must say he will not be pleased with the practice in all the churches because the church - you and I are not yet perfect. He's working on us daily to bring us to the image of the new man after our creator - where Christ is all in all.

    I'll end with this "Therefore there is no other name under heaven given among men whereby we will be saved, except the Name of Jesus. We must repent and believe in Him.

    I attend a community Christian church and He would be welcomed with love and open arms there.  We accept people who are felons, drug and alcohol addicts, divorced, homosexual, homeless and broken in general.  Those in our church reach out and support financially, or through food and clothing, others in need. Our pastors preach regularly on the love and understanding of Christ, but with the caveat that we need to change our behavior on the pathway to heaven.  I personally have had many issues in my life including divorce and alcoholism, and have watched numerous members of our congregation change into Christ-followers before my eyes.  I personally use Christ's Biblical example and don't condemn others based upon past mistakes they've made. Jesus is God's son and would be welcomed for his insight, love and kindness.  Love the sinner and hate the sin.

    I would definetely welcome him, but I know most churches today would deem him as a troublemaker or a false prophet...nothing has changed much from Jesus' time, huh?

    Yes of course he would be welcomed. Who would not wish to have him come in to His church?

    This question usually doesn't come down to whether there are any sick in the congregation but whether the practitioners are honest in their endeavors and even though, not perfect, willing to teach and learn to be even as Father is.

    Jesus would accepted in my church.  Probably because the post-modern faith of tolerance has not infected our assembly.  Jesus wasn't all that tolerant of a person...if you actually read the Bible that is.

      Jesus teaches that the greatest commandment was love, to even love our enemies as ourselves. He also said that He did not come for the righteous but for the sinners to repent and be saved.  Jesus was most intolerant to the pharisees.
