If Jesus Christ knock on your front door of your home, would you let Him in?
If it could really happen that Jesus would do such a thing, I really don't know how I would react. But you say you love Him would you let Hin in?
My relationship with my savior Jesus Christ lets him know that he is welcome in my home always. No need to knock, he is always with me and I am in him.
yes. I would let most people in, in fact. Perhaps it's the Christ in me that will determine so. A true God-lover does not feel fear in the same way like most people. But yes, if He was to come, I would receive Him with great pomp and ceremony; much adoration and reverence.
My home at most times, is only excluded to the dodgy-looking ones. The only difference with Christ, will be a matter of degree, and I will do my best. It is a great question, and should encourage many to soul-searching, if that's what you are trying to do.
We have a no strangers policy in our home. I would not let some random man who claims to be a Gods son in my home. Plenty of people have claimed to be talking to a god and killed many.
peeples- In this day and age I can understand your answer. However, I thought my question implied If Jesus really did show up at your front door. But I guess you didn't take it that way. Thanks for your answer.
I believe that if Jesus was real he was just another missionary. So I would treat him the same as the Mormons who knock on my door.
Yes like the question states, IF Jesus really did show up and as for false prophecies, I think they are easy to spot if you have faith in God.
I thought about this one for a bit. At first I thought of course I would. Then I realized that that is just a learned response. I am not that gracious.
Then I got to thinking,,,,, wait a second. I am over fifty years old and have never ever refused someone entrance into my home.
I do not go and ask strangers into my home but if they come to my home and ask to enter I let them in.
My mom would actually find people that needed a place and invite them. I think I would be more concerned about my home being messy and not good enough. I also do not know if my insurance would cover the lightning strike if I said no ;-)
But this question is deep. We all love the beautiful picturesque scenes of a wonderful manger in a sleepy beautiful town of Bethlehem. But there "mankind" turned away a birthing mother and did not invite her in. We may never learn.
I'll try to have a little fun with this. Jesus himself said that the time would come when people would say the He had returned and is over here or over there. He said don't believe them because when He returns, according to the New Testament, every eye will see Him. So, if some stranger comes to my house and says he is Jesus, I would of course know better.
But wait, Jesus also said this, "I was a stranger and you invited me in." That was in the context of when I was hungry you fed me etc. So with that in mind, the liar on my front porch is Jesus, and if there was compelling reason, such as him needing a bath or a meal, yes, I suppose I'd let him in, for a while.
Cam, I hope the point is that you would let me in. You would see me for the poor deranged hopeless man and wash my feet. I do not say that lightly. But from time to time there are GOOD men. Your great ancestors probably owned that stable.
Eric, If you showed up on my doorstep, I'd kill the fatted calf, wash your feet and have a big party to celebrate the occasion. As for my ancestors, two generations back on my mother's side was the Klan. On my Dad's side, a politician, enough said.
Wonderful. Cam I just may show up!
My door we lock for some reason like female security issues but a decent pounding will let you in to be annoyed at our insistent inquisitiveness, and forcing of food.
Eric- I don't know if I would go so far as to offer to kill a fatted calf and wash your feet, but I would offer you a cup of coffee and give you clean pair of socks.
cam8510- I meant it in a good way. I hope you're not offended.
I like the clean pair of socks idea. I might somehow get it into our churches yearly foot washing activities. Besides I need some.
Eric- What size are your feet? I hope their not like mine. My left is a size 9 and the right a size 6 1/2.
graceinus, not offended at all. In fact I'm still laughing.
sorry eric bible says there are no "good " men .. opinion instead of scripture again. Matt 19:17 So He said to him, "Why do you call Me good? No one is good but One, that is, God.
Wow Celafoe! That is the most literal translation of anything in the bible I have ever heard.
I am sorry for this off scripture notion. Does that mean men can be Great, I find no restriction on that?
I have calf and clean socks for you.
In a heart beat. I would give him the clothing off my back, offer him a warm bed to rest and even given him the last of my food. He's beyond deserving of it.
Without question, Jesus in his physical form would be welcome in our home. However, many have been approached by Jesus and did not recognize him. We all have a picture of what he looked like, but we do not know, and he may look entirely different than what we imagine. Thus, to be sure you are actually letting Jesus into your home, you would first have to have a relationship with him, so that he knows you and you have no doubts that you know him.
Sure I would. I let most anybody come in. I don't like standing at the door talking to somebody with the door open. Because the cat will dash out the door and I have to go chase him. So I tell the person to come in and shut the door. If what the person has to say doesn't interest me, he/she doesn't stay long. I would probably offer Jesus a cup of coffee, or a beer, and see what he had to say.
Yes without a doubt.
Wow I would be in awe I think. I would offer him a tea and sit and have a conversation with him about the days of his life.
I would ask him to live with me. I cant wait for his second coming to be honest.
I ask God to come into my present all the time.
I would let him in before any big icon in this world.
First I would have to recover from the shock that He is standing at my front dooor, then I would follow up with everything you just said. Many thanks Rayne123
I have an honest question. 2nd coming has 2parts. For christians 1st then w/ christians to reign. The world will be destroyed by fire, mass death, blood running in the streets. You look forward to this? Can't wait for it? Please explain.
I have to add to my comment. I think with fairness to the question that we all know this is Jesus, the question is to let him in or not. In the real world we still all know when it is Jesus. We all will eye him.
YES and anyone else that came with good intent. and feed and clothe and shelter them if needed
Right On! That is what I call loving your neighbor.
Now how about the enemy with bad intent. Well the Pharisees and the people of his own home town, they pretty much thought Christ had bad intentions.
If Christ was there to condemn you????

If you were to stand before God today and He should ask you, "Why should I let you into Heaven?"...what would your response be? Looking for serious soul searching answers. Would love to help anyone seeking true understanding.

Christians: if Mohammed came back to earth would you become Muslim?A couple months back someone asked atheists if they would become Christian if Jesus came back. I wasn't around for that so I am turning the question on its head to be part of the discussion.
