He couldn't come back as black, because then the Whites wouldn't trust not identify with him. He couldn't come back as white, because the blacks wouldn't trust him. If he appeared in China or Asia (the West wouldn't accept him) and visa versa.
Has anyone considered the possablity that a meeting is currently taking place in Heaven, and God, Jesus and a few good spirits are sitting around trying to figure out the best way to positively influence us? It's always assumed they know exactly what they are doing, however if we truely do have a free will, then this is something they couldn't predict 100%. I know our free will can be very predictable at times, however I don't believe God could ever 100% know what we're going to do next if our will is truely free? Would this not cause God, Christ and ensamble to take the temperature of Earth and prescribe an exact does of ____?____ instead of good old miracles? Maybe miracles would not work this time around?
Example: To my pet Dog, I am his God in that he doesn't understand my reasoning process. I on the other hand am quite smart and predict his behaviour (even control it to a certain extent) I also care and love him, however if I brought an armadillo into the house I couldn't be exactly sure what he would do since he hasn't seen one before. Now I'm not suggesting that you think of Christ as an armadillo, but if this helps you understand my question then so be it.
I suppose my question is; taken for granted that Christ loves us as a good shephard wanting to care for his little lambs; How do YOU think he should approach us? Consider for a moment, it really is up to you, because God and Jesus are running low on ideas for this day and age (a particulary bloody, godless and selfish age in my opinion).
Sorry this is so long winded - just need to ask a few questions.
