First of all about me: I am what could be best described as "Catholic Hippy", that means exactly that, religious lessons in school were Bavarian
catholicism which is in comparison already quite liberal I think. My family is a bunch of Hippies everybody is equal, god is everywhere and in
everything, you have to respect other peoples opinions because it's their path and not mine, never judge just love etc.
So naturally my ideas about religion and the interpretation of the involved lore might be somewhat requiring getting used to for more orthodox
traditionalist. But nevertheless I am looking for your input and thoughts in a serious question I keep asking myself about the appearance of the
messiah, whatever that means to you, if that is the second coming to Christians, the first to Jews, or wherever you may be coming from.
Jesus called himself repeatedly "Son of Man". He went 40 days into the desert to meditate and fast, he had great issues with the authorities of his
time, so much so that he could be considered a rebel, if not revolutionary of his time.
What we expect of him if he comes back is also that he brings us justice, the true messiah would bring peace and justice to jews and all faithful
christians alike, right?
What I am wondering is: is it possible he is already among us, entirely oblivious of the role he/she might play in the future of mankind. Struggling
to be a good person in a world which mostly benefits the selfish and ruthless? Is it maybe even the case that every son/daughter of man has the
potential to become the messiah if they choose the correct path?
Is it maybe a competition of who has the purest heart, the
greatest faith and the most strength to act in praise of god, entirely free from all sins?
