Who would you choose?.
Started by: Dave xl5 (327)  Report abuse
If you could bring someone back just for 24 hours, someone who has passed,someone you have known, or even only heard about in your life. A family member, a fiend, a personality, someone from history, anyone! Who would it be,and why?. My Dad died suddenly when I was eleven years old, I would ask for him. I would video record us together, and after telling him how much I've missed him, and that I've always loved him, I would ask him to please tell me as much of his life as he could recall. Then I would shut up, and listen. Who would you choose, and what would you do. Remember, it could be anyone.

Although I would love to see my Mam and Dad again.I did have them in my life for many years, though I do still miss them, as I do with many other family.. For me, it would be my Granddad, my Mams Dad, he died when I was 10.. The only memories I have of him, He was bedridden, but I don't know why.. I remember I used to climb up on his bed, and snuggle with him.. He always smelled of the pipe he smoked and he had a beard that tickled my face.. That's all I remember of him..

It's a very hard question,but my Grandma I would love to see and listen to
her lovely stories of Ireland which as a child I never thought of asking..but
mostly my beloved Brother Michael..we were two halves put together.I miss
him every day.

Momac I understand where you're coming from...my lovely brother had bowel cancer last year & had a bag fitted.We've just heard after a year he's an appointment for 3rd September to have a reversal so we're just hoping all goes to plan

NJ..I hope all goes well for your Brother..I would love to have mine still with
me..1959'he was a young electrician apprentice at Taylor's mill in Wallgate,
the cooling towers Poolstock were having problems ,brought the
components down to the mill.our Michael was left in charge,which he
shouldn't have been..he got 2'500 volts,burned everything he was wearing
had a lot of skin grafts,it was horrendous what he went through..but he was a
tough lad..even the specialist said so..all lights in Wigan went off ..it came
on Northern news..then he got caught in an avalanche in Chamonix.lost a
stone in weight,then a heart attack..got over that only to die with a brain
tumour..I miss his jovial ways his smile his singing everything..
And again..all my good wishes for your Brother..cherish him.

Difficult to decide on one, the obvious family deceased plus a number of friends and neighbours.

There is more than enough evidence that Jesus of Nazareth did exist, the evidence is in the writings of Jewish and Roman historians of the time and for at least 25 years after his death he was still being written about. The Roman Tacitus wrote that Jesus was executed while Pontius Pilate was the Roman prefect in charge of Judaea, the Romans like the Germans of the Nazi era kept impeccable records of all that went on within the Reich. It is up to the individual believer in Christ as to whether all that is written about him is true or not, their faith isn't up for question.

And I presume that's why FAT MICK chose him.
It would answer a lot of questions and if true would confirm an afterlife which would mean being united with all our loved ones at some future point.

Posted by: TerryW (2604) Report abuse
I took it that he was a relative of Fat Mick or maybe just his exclamation on the subject.

Posted by: chatty (7091)  Report abuse
Yea he was there at the feeding of the Five Thousand, rumour has it though there wasn't quite that many there, but MICK tucked in and that's how the title stuck.

Only kidding

I'd like to meet my great great grandparents on both sides who came to Lancashire from Ireland.I'd like to hear about their life and why their siblings went in other directions to USA and Canada.

Always amazes me how many non-believers of Jesus celebrate his birth and death

Posted by: builderboy (2149) Report abuse
Celebrate his death? When does the Christian faith celebrate the death of Jesus?

I would like to bring back my sister, she was the most loving person i ever knew, i miss her after six years,

Jehovah’s Witnesses celebrate the death of Jesus. It was his clear instruction at the last supper, "Also, he took a loaf, gave thanks, broke it, and gave it to them, saying, ‘This means my body, which is to be given on your behalf. Keep doing this in remembrance of me." Luke 22:19. That is why Jehovah’s Witnesses gather each year on the anniversary of the death of Jesus to remember the ransom sacrifice that Jesus offered. His death can mean life for all obedient humans.

Each to their own.

what a load of BULLOCKS one year they celebrate it on different days in march then different days in aprili suppose it keeps a stone mason in job changing his death date on his headstone every year..

Posted by: TerryW (2604) Report abuse
There is a real contradiction in the dates and I have no idea why as it goes back to the times that Mark and John said it happened, Mark said it was on the day of the passover nisan 15 and John the day before nisan 14 both gospels contradict each other. But there is no doubt that he was crucified.

L.G..do you not look at a beautiful sunset or a new born baby etc and
wonder they all came about..did everything just happen on its own..do you
never think deeply about these things.

Posted by: kathpressey (5003)  Report abuse
I tink Terry W knows his stuff and laughing graving dismisses anything he doesn't have knowledge of. Faith is a personal thing and it shouldn't be dismissed as "Bollocks". Each to his own.

Posted by: TerryW (2604) Report abuse
As I said a persons faith isn't up for question. Of course there are extremes in all faiths which can be called into question on the way extremists teach their faith.

dont remember owt from jesus about killing folk,if we lived our lives like he said we should. the world would be a far more secure and happy place.

BB..the devil still walks, take a look through history and you'll see where he
has walked.

Posted by: laughing gravy (5070) Report abuse
kath i have enough knowledge to know that a man who has been crucifide and stabbed with a big sword will NOT rise from the dead two days later no matter how much faith you have...

Posted by: TerryW (2604) Report abuse
Ah but it was a spear not a "big sword" and it was thrust in Jesus' side by a roman centurion named Longinus and guess what he was blind, blood from the spear went into his eyes and cured his blindness. Longinus then believed in the son of God. There was also many witnesses to the risen Jesus, to believe and follow Jesus requires faith.

terry do you have faith? if so jump off the tallest thing you can find i'd love to know if you faith will save you,are you brave enough?

Can I watch.

Posted by: laughing gravy (5070) Report abuse
sd you and i know all those who claim to have faith wont test itbut to give terry the benefit hes yet to say if he has faith in god...

Posted by: Stardelta (6968) Report abuse
Terry says what suits his purpose at the time and whatever is required to forward his argument........nothing else.

He is as genuine as a 3 pound note!

Posted by: TerryW (2604) Report abuse
Never said I had faith, I was just pointing out your inaccuracies on the matter. Jumping off buildings is a persons own decision and no faith or God will stop you.

Posted by: baker boy (14979) Report abuse
lg are you mad.why are you proposing someone hurl himself from a tall building.
