I asked 8th grade CCD class to put their heads down on their desk and picture Jesus. What did they imagine. What would they ask Him? Some would ask why there was so much angry in the world, why some people cannot get along. Pictured Jesus with love for them no matter what. Was a great class for me too. Bottom line for me is for me to do the very best I can each day asking myself what would Jesus do in a situation.

emoticon No one has been on this subject for a while. I am a baptized Christian. I am a sinner who knows she is forgiven. I have read the Bible and the controversies. If he sat down next to me I would ask what is the real deal. I want to believe it all but I know about the council of Nicea and Emperor Constantine. I think man has changed the Bible to suit themselves.

I so agree with you about feelings. I am counting on His sense of humor. I can almost hear Him say Oh Pat what are you thinking when you did this or that. I feel His love when I talk to Him. I feel His touch when the wind blows on my face. I see His beauty all around us in the flowers and all His creations especially the birds. The colors of them, their lovely chirping.

I don't know that I do? I know what the stereotype is but I don't believe he is going to look like that - I mean he was Jewish and they are not white and they don't speak with an English Accent if born in Israel (LOL). When I think of Jesus or God it's more of a feeling that I associate with them than an image - love, compassion, sadness at some things that have happened, sadness when I walk away or feel they have when they haven't, laughter at some of the things I do or have done. Those type of things but visualizing a face is something I've not really been able to do ever.

It really does come down to that personal decision making. Some people would believe that it is a passive suicide but other's believe it's nature taking it's course. I go with nature taking it's course - yes, I'm allowing myself to die earlier than man's intervention would prevent but if God want's me He's going to take me intervention or not and I'd rather get there sooner than later if I was ill and dying anyways.... IDK, that's just me though.

My husband and I have talked about this from time to time. We are both in our 70's in good health except for the arthritis which can really bother us at times. We both have had heart attacks but are doing very well now. The weight loss is a definite plus with that. Had a man come over today to talk about getting a new roof done and I could not sit with him as my back was really hurting today from the arthritis. He asked if he could put me on his church prayer line. That really touched me.

I know folks that have made that same decision. Personally I would probably do the same thing with certain diagnoses or at a certain age.

I have a really dear friend in her early 80's. She found out that she has breast cancer stage four. She has decided not to have treatment as she really as wanted to go home for some time since her husband died. We pray daily for a easy, happy death. I know when God calls her home she will pray for me as she does now.

I know that my dad will be there when I get there - he was very strong in his faith and his belief in God.

I would ask him why am I here? What am I supposed to do? When do I get to go home and see my dad?

I think Jesus would say He is sad about all the people who have turned away from Him who loves us beyond measure. Please pray for them He would ask us.

Jan, it is never too late to answer any questions ! We are all sinners and God forgives us all if we but turn to Him who would die just for YOU! How not to sin, read His written word Jan and pray to Him for strength . He loves us so much and wants us to turn to Him . Hopefully, we will see our beloved animals again. Only time will tell! Have a bless day dear friends! Hugs,Pat

I hope its not too late to answer this one.

First I would have to ask again for him to forgive me, that he had to die in the most awful way.
I would ask him how not to sin. Even though I try, I am a terrible sinner.
I would ask why we had free will. We obviously don't deserve it.
Would he renew the earth, a living thing that we have tortured since the dawn of time.
The last thing I would ask is if animals went to heaven. I see personality in animals. I regard them as i would a human child. All the rights to live and choice and caring I would give a child.

I asked my CCD class once how they pictured Jesus. So many said they felt more than saw him. His warm embrace , his smiling face,, the love pouring out of Him who loves us so.

Can I even imagine being with the Creator, the one who loves us beyond measure. It is totally mind blowing. How do you picture Him?

I'd be too much in Awe to say anything except thank you for loving me. I don't think I'd ask him anything.
