He could have knocked preaching on the head and done a good trade selling wooden tables, chairs, pipe racks ...
What if Jesus Christ was not put to death by the Romans but instead died a natural death?

I read that strangely and must be experiencing dyslexia - I thought it said "Crack Pipes" -
Give your scenario, since he was not condemned by Adamic sin, he should still be alive today.
If he was a perfect man, he wouldn't die a natural death...
He would have lived forever being perfect, until the law of averages caught up with him and he was run over by a bus - or personal hoverboard or whatever they use in the future.
According to Christianity, the death of Jesus was a miscarriage of justice. So then, what if there was no so-called miscarriage of justice so that Jesus was not put to death by the Romans but he instead died a natural death? Would Christians still receive the forgiveness of their sins and their hoped for salvation?
No, they never have and never will because this is all nonsense.
Death by cross was probly considered a "natural" death in the first century.😉

Most dying is because of starvation, of one kind of another, crucifixion starved the body of oxygen, stressed the weak, imperfect heart, sterben=starving.
Its logic goes like this:
If a perfect man is put to death prematurely for a cause that he doesn't deserve, then has already gained the right to live forever--but he has not used it, nor lost it.
This right is not for any single man to use because when Jesus was put to death, all the children that could have born from him also were put to death. Thus when Jesus was put to death, he gained right to eternal life for countless humans who do not have that right or who forfeited right to live forever.
This right to live for ever is transferred to the sinners.
Logic seems to be ok, but in the process greatest logic is lost--did'nt God almighty and all-wise have any other means to save sinners other this cruel method of asking his innocent son to undergo excruciating pain on behalf of others?
The idea doesn't befit God
