Howzit (Let's make this one huge!) I want this to be a (who is Jesus personally to me) megathread. Don't forget to S&F and comment sincerely on this: who is JESUS to me.

The worldly powers that be have criminalized, alieniated and attempted to destroy this ONE TRUE message of salvation from Jesus to the world, but... There are those of us who still hold fast to this ONE TRUTH. S&F if you are one of Jesus children, thanks. Jesus to me is... My love, my life, my freedom, my God, my king, my...

Whether it happens in a hundred years or a thousand years or a million years, eventually our Sun will grow cold and go out. When that happens, it won't just take us. It'll take Marilyn Monroe, and Lao-Tzu, and Einstein, and Morobuto, and Buddy Holly, and Aristophanes…[and] all of this…all of this…was for nothing. Unless we go to the stars."
