Freethinking Jesus (English)

Freethinking Jesus (English)

I don’t want you to “believe in” anything. I don’t want you to be persuaded to anyone’s opinion, including mine. I just want you to know the facts. What you do with the facts is up to you. I am a freethinker. Maybe you are too. For 50 years of my life, I was not just a freethinker, I was an anti-Christian. I know every argument against Jesus Christ and the Bible. Perhaps you don’t see yourself as an anti-Christian, but if you are a freethinker, you probably have several arguments against Christianity. Could one be that Christians are judgmental and narrow minded? Could another be that Christians (and other religious people) are generally weak people who need religion? That they fell for a book that was written by ancient kings to control the masses? It is a long list, we won’t go through it now, but you know the list. Eight years ago I turned my freethinking ways toward an honest investigation of the life of Jesus of Nazareth. I finally read that book I swore I would never read, the Bible. My life has never been the same. But, I don’t want you to believe me. I don’t want you to be persuaded to my opinion. Rather, I want to put a burr in your sock; I want to make you feel a little uncomfortable. I want to take you on a journey, on a tour of my old worldview, and have you discover with me how illogical my old worldview was. I suspect you will identify with my old views, and find yourself getting quite uncomfortable as I expose the illogic of disbelief. “Really?” you might say. “Are you suggesting I might be illogical?

Christians are the ones who are illogical, believing in something they can’t see!” I know. It is still fresh for me, the unbeliever mindset. So, I know this is not an easy topic to broach with you. I don't want you to feel offended and turn your thinking immediately against me. Please don't run away. Please keep thinking clearly. I am a friend, not a foe. I am more like you than you imagine. In the interest of keeping the bad news up front, though, I have worse news for you. Not only was my worldview illogical, I wasn't aware of my illogic because I was so emotionally invested in my views. And, yes, it is likely you are there, too. “No!” you might respond. “Christians are the ones who are emotionally attached!!! I am on the side of science!” Come, take a journey with me. This book will prove to you just how illogical it is to cling to emotionally charged disbelief. I don't want you to believe me. I want you to get your facts straight, and then doubt your current conclusions. Not an easy task because you are certain you have thought it through. Perhaps you are a scientific freethinker. You have made a career from your left brain, and you are probably quite confident that your brain will never fail you in thinking through a problem. Your motto might be "I am smarter than the problem." Alternatively, you are an artistic freethinker. Your right brain has never failed you in coming up with "out of the box" concepts. You've come to trust that when everyone else is thinking linearly, your brain seems to think multi-dimensionally and you find the right solution to win everyone over. How do I know you? I am just like you. I, too, am a freethinker. But, after 50 years of being a freethinking anti-Christian, God brought me to my knees. And when I look back, I wish somebody had handed me this book. It would have saved me years of...
