The Human Jesus and Christian Deism
THE HUMAN JESUS AND CHRISTIAN DEISM
Human beings are designed to live in accord with certain natural laws which can be discovered by anyone through observation, experience, and reasoning.
The violation of these natural laws is destructive to life. Living in harmony with these laws enhances an individual's life and contributes to the establishment of a peaceful and prosperous human society. A man named Jesus called this ideal society "the kingdom of God" on earth.
My name is John Lindell and I want to share my discovery of the original gospel ("good news") of Jesus. If we look beyond the myths and theological theories that have accumulated around Jesus, we can see a real human being with a vital message for us today.
I hope that the following essays will be helpful as you develop your own personal religion -- the beliefs that you live by. You can read these essays by clicking on the individual titles listed below.
