Dude, Jesus was white with long flowing brown locks, blue eyes and a manly beard. Haven't you ever seen the thousands of paintings of him? They wouldn't possibly lure about him would they? His Middle Eastern origins doesn't matter.

It's funny, I've had numerous religious discussions over the years, but never once has anyone attempted to argue Jesus' race with me or me with them. In fact, sitting here right now the only rationale I can come to for why someone would consider it worthy of argument is if the party making the initial claim was doing so in an assholish manner. Otherwise, if it's just a painting of black Jesus in a Southern Baptist church or a blonde Jesus in a Methodist church or hell, Korean Jesus on Jump Street, nobody really cares. Envision the Messiah in whatever way you personally are comfortable with and STFU about it otherwise, ya?
was declared heresy at the end of the 2nd century and was rejected by the Synods of Antioch and the First Council of Nicaea, which defined the orthodox doctrine of the Trinity and identified the man Jesus with the eternally begotten Son or Word of God in the Nicene Creed.

He's orange. Look up at that glowing ball of light in the morning... They call it the Sun. The Sun of God because everyone knows you can't own the Sun, therefore it is Gods Sun.
The bringer of light, the savior from darkness, the light of the world...
He's light orange or even yellow depending on what time of the day you look at him.

If there was ever a topic that breeds both hilarious and ridiculous responses based on nothing more than hate for black people, its the subject of Christ being black. Put the words “black” and “Jesus” in the same sentence and people will lose all common sense. Some people just can’t fathom the idea that a man that lived in Africa, came from a lineage that mixed with Africans, and were often mistaken for Africans… could possibly be black (cognitive dissonance). What it boils down to is that they just flat out hate the idea of a black Messiah… and those that would reject Christ based on race will not see the kingdom of heaven. Feel free to drop a link to this page any time you encounter any of these type of people.
