SO WHERE AM I NOW?
Where have I got to or been left?
What conclusions have been come to?
How can I summarise my position?
Religion is still significant to me. I find what I believe is important.
I call myself a Christian, but struggle with most of its ideas;
the doctrines of orthodox Christian theology and belief,
but then perhaps Jesus did much the same, in his time.
I believe in God, but as an idea, a Spirit, a guide,
but not as a power intervening in human life.
I believe in much of the teaching of Jesus,
but not in his divinity or resurrection.
I do not believe or trust the Bible
written to convince,
not as truth.
I believe that the true teaching of Jesus in the Bible
provides a realistic path to the good life
which he called the Kingdom of God
I believe that is the true
destination for mankind.
