~ R. U. Wacko
Far as I know, Jesus did live, died and does truly live on in us who believe in his teachings. There is no written evidence during Jesus life and years thereafter that denies Jesus lived. He likely died on a cross and suffered greatly. To me, it is not like his father left him die for our sins. That is not logical. Churches need that explanation to explain why we should tithe to have everlasting life.
