Loving Radically Across the Atheist/Theist Divide

Posted on 10th mo. 6, 2012 at 2:27pm 0 Comments

Even though I haven’t believed in a personal god since 1996 or so, I have hesitated to call myself an atheist. No doubt a good bit of that hesitation arises from my long period as a Pentecostal Christian. I have little problem using the term atheist to describe myself to other atheists. However, with Christians and other theists, I seek to use less polarizing terms, like nontheist or even agnostic. The main reason I don’t want theists to consider me to be an atheist is that as believers, my…

The Communism of Jesus

Posted on 10th mo. 3, 2012 at 5:58pm 1 Comment

I am a Communist because it is the logical outcome of my childhood Pentecostal faith in Jesus. I am a Communist, because Jesus was a Communist.

I am not a Christian, because Jesus was not a Christian. Jesus was a Jewish rabbi who mobilized a mass movement to usher in the Kingdom of Heaven on earth, that is Communism. Communism is the logical fulfillment of the teachings of Jesus.

“Indeed, as the Concern was weighty, so I was not forward, lest I should be found to Run before I was sent; therefore I waited patiently to be fully satisfied in the Matter, not only a Day, or a Week, but many Months; and then as my Concern grew heavier upon me, I gave up, begging the Lord to be with me, and to give me a full Mission for so weighty a Concern. Alice Hayes, A Legacy or The Widow’s Mite.

A Radical Quaker Message for Our Time

Posted on 8th mo. 5, 2012 at 1:20am 0 Comments

So, I am convinced that we Quakers do have a radical message to recover, and it is neither the guilt-ridden Puritan message of personal salvation, nor the liberal message of quiet inclusive reformism. It’s the message of a new world order that must be born to save this planet from self-annihilation. It isn’t a message of enlightened liberals fixing the problems of the third world or zealous missionaries winning souls for a heavenly reward. The message of Jesus, Winstanley, Fox, and…

Love's Communism

Posted on 8th mo. 2, 2012 at 5:41pm 0 Comments

I am being transformed into a Communist of Universal Love. I first glimpsed this Communism in the story of Jesus and his earliest followers. As I followed this obscure road to Love’s Communism, I was commanded by Jesus to leave the church and God above to find the real meaning of his Gospel.
