Deism core beliefs

Praise be to God. And when I say God, I mean the gender-neutral Holy Deity, who may or may not be Jesus or the parent of Jesus.

Holy Deity, we give thanks for this food, and pray that it will be healthy for us and for our planet. So be it.

Holy Deity,
For guidance and forgiveness
We pray. So be it.

Oh Holy Deity, oh Deity we pray,
For guidance and forgiveness
And a cheerful day.
We go along with everything our atheist friends will say
Except for our Deity, oh Deity we pray.

Core beliefs:

Matthew 7:12

The 10-10-10 plan,
10 Commandments
10 Amendments
10 Key Values of the Green Party

The 1-1-1 plan,
Raise taxes of the 1 percent
1 dollar
For 1 year.

Some more thoughts:

Merry Christmas, and when I say Merry Christmas, I mean to enjoy the celebration of the birth of Jesus which is part of a faith tradition which is encompassed by worship of the Holy Deity. ( :

The Holy Deity encompasses God, Allah, Athena, Vishnu, the Dao, and all the rest.

You can be a closet Deist. You can go through the motions at your church, mosque, synagogue, or whatever, knowing that you are really worshipping the all-encompassing Holy Deity. You don't have to attend a Deist church.

Christians who quote John 3:16, please cite your sources. If your reasoning doesn't stand up to scientific scrutiny, then don't condemn people of other faiths.

As an open Deist, I admit that I "know not" whether the bodily resurrection occurred. The wording "know not" is an indirect reference to Luke 23:34. This ought to get Deists into Heaven, even if John 3:16 is true.

The advantage to Deism is that it simultaneously allows for both individuality and unity. It provides a framework for ALL people to come together to discuss and establish common goals and codes of conduct.
