It is taught that Jesus is God,
that being the case, Jesus had a color
either black or white.

If Jesus is a brown skin man,
could you pray to a Black God,




Please saved the comment " color does not matter"
it does not answer the question.



peace

Yes, he had a color, but why do you think the only color choices are black or white? Asians are a yellow type color. Native Americans have a reddish color. Middle Eastern people are olive skinned. There is more than just black and white. That being said, Jesus was Jewish, born in the Middle East. Therefore, he was more than likely olive skinned. He was neither black nor white.

Ok I'll bite...

I am white skinned.. actually I think of myself as tan-colored since it is summer and the Pacific Northwest has been blessed with sun but nevertheless in the winter I will be white again .
If Jesus were black skinned it would not change my view of God or Jesus in any way, I don't think the color of ones skin defines them any more than my being small in stature defines me..
BTW I don't formally practice prayer but if I did it still wouldn't matter because I picture God having no form and don't pray to Jesus as he was a man and is subject to God.
I know that seems like an un-answer to the question but I figured I'd give it a whirl! Hope you find what you seek.

Yep. I could pray to a black God. Why would you object to someone saying color does not matter? The reason I could pray to a black God is that I really couldn't care any less what color he actually was.

God is spirit, and those who worship Him must not do so in a physical mindset.

[LEFT]We can assume therefore when Christ came he looked like an Egyptian, this then make sense as to why God sends Mary and Joseph to Egypt to hide Jesus. Mat 2:13-15
Revelations 1:15 says "and his feet like unto fine brass as if they burned in a furnace?"



not only that Jesus was an israelite and the israelites come from Africa cush.
[LEFT]
AMOS 9:7

"Are not you Israelites the same to me as the Cu****es?" declares the LORD. "Did I not bring Israel up from Egypt,[/LEFT]

Iam not seeking anything, it more for people who have been praying to a white man God picture.


I agree Jesus was a man and not God.

Good for you, because when Jesus comes back, you might not look like that picture that is hanging in the chruch.

In America, if Jesus was shown as a black guy or brown guy, no one would be a Christian.
