Bible Versus

As I recently told the RLP [Real Live Preacher], I consider myself a “christianist”, meaning I believe in the ideals of what this person Jesus Christ taught but not necessarily all the kooky-spooky stuff. My re-examination of the Bible and what it contains will be an often unorthodox, broader minded view of what has been written.”

I came across the blog, Bible Versus, through Real Live Preacher. Bible Versus is the blog of Hugh Elliott, a gay man with AIDS who lives in Los Angeles. He has decided to read through the Bible, starting with the New Testament, and blogging about his experience.

While Hugh does not consider himself a Christian, he does consider himself to be a “christianist.” I’ll let him explain it in his own words from his inaugural post:

“I’m not a practising “christian”. As I recently told the RLP [Real Live Preacher], I consider myself a “christianist”, meaning I believe in the ideals of what this person Jesus Christ taught but not necessarily all the kooky-spooky stuff. My re-examination of the Bible and what it contains will be an often unorthodox, broader minded view of what has been written.”

I think this is going to be a wonderful, challenging and insightful blog. I am looking forward to journeying through what Hugh learns and what I will learn through him.
