In the time of the ancestors, a man was born to a virgin mother with no biological father being involved.
The same fatherless man called out to a friend called Lazarus, who had been dead long enough to stink, and Lazarus promptly came back to life.
The fatherless man himself came alive after being dead and buried three days.
Forty days later, the fatherless man went up to the top of a hill and then disappeared bodily into the sky.
If you murmur thoughts privately in your head, the fatherless man, and his ‘father’ (who is also himself ) will hear your
thoughts and may act upon them. He is simultaneously able to hear the thoughts
of everybody else in this world.
If you do something bad, or something good, the same fatherless man sees all, even if nobody else does. You may be rewarded or punished accordingly, including after your death.
The fatherless man’s virgin mother never died but ‘ascended’ bodily into heaven.
Bread and wine, if blessed by a priest (who must have testicles) ‘become’ the body and blood of the fatherless man.
