Waged no war, said his kingdom was not of this world so his followers should not fight Was a warrior who waged war by fighting or leading in sixty-six battles to spread his message of monotheism Ordered the death of no one but instead died in place of the guilty.

The question that needs to be answered by all those religions that use Jesus in their teachings. How can you trust your life after death to a person who is still dead?
No matter how great any teacher is of the different religions, if one looks at the claims of Christ they can find no fault with him. If one accepts what he said of himself as true then they are left with a a decision that will affect their eternal destiny. Go here to understand the Gospel/ Injil
