Description:

In this presentation we examined the character and teachings of Jesus from a secular perspective, which was, Jeremy ironically noted, actually Fundamentalist friendly in the sense that he would be assuming that Jesus was a real, historical person and that what he is given to have said were actually stated him. Crow said that he first encountered this item when he was in high school, sitting with a non-Christian friend who was wearing the bracelet. The friend explained that even though he did not regard Jesus as a great prophet or God incarnate, he believed that he was a good man and teacher and that the bracelet served as a reminder of the thinking of this benevolent teacher when he was in doubt regarding the vagaries and dilemmas of life.

About Jeremy Crow

Freethought Association Member

Jeremy Crow was studying for his Bachelor’s degree in Religious Education with the intent of actually going into the ministry. But he soon discovered the many contradictions and inconsistencies that were part and parcel of his religious faith. Like all budding freethinkers, he began to ask tough questions but was never given responses that were satisfying, especially within the context of his orthodox religious beliefs. He became an atheist. Jeremy has begun hosting the Philosophy Book Discussion group gatherings again at his house. He selected the book: The President of Good & Evil; Questioning the Ethics of George W. Bush, by Peter Singer.
