    What is God? Perspectives from the Deists

    in Religion

    All Deists believe that God exists.
    But what is God?  Is God a trinity?  A man in the clouds?  A deity who gives you direct revelation?  A cosmic force?  Or an entity that demands obedience?
    What can we know about God? Join the World Union of Deists in an engaging discussion about the nature of God … and be sure to call with your questions or perspectives!

    Portraits of Deists: A victim of Islamic terror

    in Religion

    On the morning of Thursday, 7 July 2005, four Islamist home-grown terrorists detonated four bombs, three in quick succession aboard London Underground trains across the city and, later, a fourth on a double-decker bus in Tavistock Square. Fifty-two civilians and the four bombers were killed in the attacks, and over 700 more were injured.
    Linda, one of the victims, is crippled. Her husband died because of the bombing. Her grief and trauma made her rethink "revealed" religion -- causing her to reject both religion and atheism.
    Now the Scotland contact for the World Union of Deists, Linda shares her tragic story and insights in this pre-recorded segment of God Gave Us Reason, Not Religion. Although the show is pre-recorded, representatives of the World Union of Deists will be available to chat with listeners in the web-based chat room that will be open during the show.

    What Do Deists Believe About Jesus of Nazareth?

    in Religion

    Was Jesus of Nazareth a real person who got mythologized?
    Or was Jesus simply a mythological being?
    Finally, was Jesus a Deist whose teachings and biography were warped by some of his followers, as Thomas Jefferson believed?
    In the true spirit of freethought, Deism does not teach any absolutes about the subject of the Jesus of the Christian bible.  However, following reason and logic, there is one thing that Deists can agree on:  Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof.  When it comes to the alleged miracles performed by Jesus, including the virgin birth and resurrection from the dead, Deists are skeptical.
    The World Union of Deists‘ Deputy Director Jayson X, and his co-host Tim Wingate will explore three Deists’ perspectives on the historicity of Jesus in this thought-provoking podcast.
    The show is scheduled for 60 minutes, but 90 minutes have been reserved in case more time is needed.  For upcoming shows from The World Union of Deists and other hosts, please visit God Discussion's "At-A-Glance" calendar.

    Deism for Mortals: Morals, Utilitarianism and Happiness

    in Religion

    In this segment of God Gave Us Reason, Not Religion, an official podcast of the World Union of Deists, the discussion about morality continues.  Must you rely on a holy book for morals? Are ethics the exclusive domain of revealed religions?
    Jayson X, the deputy director of the World Union of Deists, will explain his Deist-friendly moral system, while entertaining the thoughts on morality from Deist Tim Wingate and callers.
    Jayson is basically a Utilitarian. He defines Utilitarianism as the philosophy that teaches that what is good is the action that achieves the greatest amount of happiness for the greatest amount of creatures, especially humans. What is evil is an action that does not.
    Whether you agree with Jayson or not (or even if you aren’t sure), he guarantees that you will be entertained and edified by this podcast!

    Devils, Demons and Darkness

    in Religion

    When you were a kid, were you afraid of demons and ghosts lurking in the dark?
    Does the fear of Satan and demons plague you today?
    If you’re still afraid of the devil, it’s time for a fresh breath of reason from the World Union of Deists.
    This pre-recorded podcast, Devils, Demons and Darkness, sheds light on the origins of beliefs in Satan, Lucifer, devils, demons and hell.  In this informative discussion with Tim and Jayson some important points will be revealed, such as the concept of devils as being from people and not from God, as well as Jesus being the same as Lucifer. These two Deists are very qualified to teach on this important topic as Tim has a Doctor in Theology degree and Jayson is a former Eastern Orthodox Christian priest.
    It’s time to be free of the fear of devils, demons and the dark. As the great scientist Marie Currie said, “Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.”
    Due to space limitations, please visit the official God Discussion show page for more information about this enlightening discussion.
    Although the show is pre-recorded, representatives of the World Union of Deists will be available to chat with listeners in the web-based chat room that will be open during the show.

    Who is better, Jesus or Superman?

    in Religion

    Is the love disappearing from Christianity?  "Come let us reason together" types of discussions with religious folks can sometimes lead the threats of going to hell.  Of course, this doesn't apply to all believers who are willing to sit down and talk about their faith.
    Some of those willing to talk are people who stop by to proselytize.  The World Union of Deists' Tim Wingate and his brother Mark share their unique and effective way of dealing with "revealed" religionists who insist on pushing their religion on them. This podcast is loaded with important points and lots of humor.  For instance, when dealing with Scientologists, they reveal that Superman has been around longer than Scientology.  But there's much more ... discover who is better, Jesus or Superman!
    Both Mark and Tim were born into a Pentecostal family and have a deep knowledge of Christianity. In fact, Tim has a doctorate in theology.

    Freethought in Action: Two Deistic Views on Morality

    in Religion

    Freethinkers reject authority and dogma, especially in religion. Freethinkers form their own conclusions, based on reason and logic, not group think. And that’s one of the beauties of Deism, a form of theistic freethought: Deists are not expected to uniformly believe the same things.An example of this involves morality, where the World Union of Deists' Jayson and Tim hold two different views.As Jayson explained last month, he believes that Utilitarianism (the ethical theory that every voluntary human action should attempt to achieve the greatest amount of happiness for the greatest amount of creatures, especially humans) is the best ethical theory.  But his co-host Tim Wingate disagrees, arguing that Utilitarianism or its variations has historically brought paternalistic, hierarchical, and authoritarian efforts -- sometimes violent -- to achieve the greatest good for all.  For Tim, examples provided in Nature should provide the foundation for ethical theory and morality.Do both moralistic views lead to the same result? Is one better than another, or do you have something else in mind?  Find out what both freethinking Deists have to say on this subject, and feel free to call in with your opinions or questions.For more information, please visit the sponsor page at GodDiscussion.net.The God Gave Us Reason, Not Religion podcast is a service of The World Union of Deists, a global network and educational outreach for Deism.

    The Declaration of Sinlessness

    in Religion

    Are you hell-bound due to your burden of “original sin?”  And do you even know what “original sin” is, anyway?
     
    Join Jayson and Tim of the World Union of Deists as they reveal the theology of “original sin” and how it conflicts with the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God.  Eleven powerful facts make it very clear there is no evidence that any religious law and/or commandment has its origins in God.
    The World Union of Deists’ Declaration of Sinlessless follows the pattern of the Declaration of Independence, principally written by Thomas Jefferson — a fellow Deist — with input from Benjamin Franklin, also a Deist. Both declaratory documents resist the superstitions and traditions of “revealed religions” and emphasize reason.
    Following the path of reason enlightened by the Laws of Nature and Nature's God, you can still be a moral person ... but with a slate clean of superstitious dogma.
