For sure He did. He died for the whole world. But only a few will believe. narrow is the way!!
I believe jesus died on a stake in order to further gods loving plan for mankind,it was the ultimate sacrifice for humans. Now we have the opportunity to live forever on a paradise earth:-) How does his dying have to do with our living forever? John 3:15-17.
NO, I heard he died on the cross for riding a donkey into Jerusalem and pretending to be the saviour, the king of kings.<br />
I heard he'd read somewhere that a person would ride a donkey in to Jerusalem, and that person would be the saviour, so the stupid deluded fool jumped on a donkey and pretended to be that saviour. <br />
For his stupidity the Romans treated him like the dummy he was, they promptly crowned him with thorns and then got him to drag a huge cross through the streets to make a mockery of him for being so stupid as to call himself the saviour, and when they'd had their fun, they nailed him to the cross and stabbed him. <br />
So he died becuase he believed what he'd read and for being stupid enough to stir up the Romans, not for any other reason. <br />
Obviously the man was an idiot, lol.
Yes, as a lesson and not as a miracle.<br />
Not because His crucifixion miraculously cleans<br />
all our sins; but His absolute sacrifice teaches us<br />
how to conduct a life of selfless love to turn this<br />
planet into Paradise for all.<br />
Bearing the cross of Christ to follow Him means<br />
that the Christian believer is ready to accept<br />
all sufferings, all humility, all hardships... to help<br />
lost lambs who are indulging in physical desires<br />
and selfish passions.<br />
When more people learn the lesson of sacrifice, by<br />
knowing that human true life is spiritual, trying to<br />
conduct a life of love, unity and peace; then after<br />
reflecting the qualities of God, all souls will return<br />
to His as perfect as they were created.<br />
Christ says clearly that He does not promise<br />
paradise to people who call Him "O Lord, O Lord"<br />
without doing the Will of His Father in Heaven.<br />
Yes, this lesson is as clear as the sun of midday.
