Jesus’s core teachings had virtually nothing to do with religious beliefs and everything to do with living a life of integrity and love.
For someone with “Reverend” in front of their name, admitting that he or she has lost faith feels overwhelmingly frightening and threatening.
At this stage on the journey, I’ve identified five core essentials I need to live a good life.
