You make him sound like a bloodthirsty warlord.  I guess that why he said, "But I say unto you, Love your enemies... Let me smite them alone and drink their blood and feast upon their shriveled black hearts..." -Mathew 5

As far as I know, according to the Christian lore he WILL be a warlord when he returns, an almost completely different person who will lead the armies of good against the demonic army of the Anti-Christ.

According to Revelation...

But as I said, not all of us Christians accept that prophecy...

Jesus Christ - Matthew 28:18-20 said:

"All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."

I see people in America, especially in the political arena (but not exclusively) that tout their Christian faith on one hand, and on the other express xenophobia against people of middle-eastern decent, seemingly without realizing that he/she worships a middle-eastern man.

That would be the same political elite in the US that goes around brown-nosing the islamic world, removing the teaching about islamic terrorism from the CIA education agenda, helps the Muslim Brotherhood take over all over the Middle East, while throwing pro-Western politicians under the bus, fills the White House with Muslim brotherhood front advisors, lets Al Quaeda massacre the US embassador in Bengazi while railroading a Coptic film maker for it, calls the Fort Hood massacre a "workplace accident" and has Barrack Hussein declare in the UN that "There is no future for those who critizise Mohammed"??

Get real!

Talk about about world-view upside down.

If it was common knowledge that if Jesus existed, he looked similar to the guy on the left, and nothing like the guy on the right, how many would not become Christians?

I would be more inclined to believe that the guy with the blonde hair was a creation of some Jewish Hollywood producer or a European person who had never seen what a Jewish man  from the west bank looked like. Times have changed since then.
It would be likely that a Jewish man created that picture, we know what they thought of Jesus and are not going to make him look like one of them.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

Such a statement is something you should very well already know the answer to. You either know exactly what my response will be and are simply asking me in an attempt to cause pointless conflict and argue, or you really don't know the answer and in which case your just plain stupid. Sorry if that offends you, but many many many Christians have answered that exact question trillions upon trillions upon trillions of times. If your an atheist and still don't know the Christian response to that, then please do your research because I just cannot bear to answer that same damn question again...

Plus, you missed the entire point of my post... Can't even post a frikkin' joke...

Here's my "Jesus Christ" ("As seen on the History channel special, this image was created from 3D computer images from the Shroud of Turin. Surely the closest representation to what our savior Jesus Christ truly looked like."):

Exactly. Truth is, He is able to manifest many faces, different types. After all, He is the "Holy Spirit."

Lots of Christians have little faith in God because most of them skipped Mass on Sunday to watch the SuperBowl :clap:
