Deism is the belief that a God made the universe, and then was all hands off. Deists believed in God but denied that he was active in the history of Israel or in the person of Jesus of Nazareth. The Deist debate exploded in Britain around 1700.  Deism developed from the “Scientific Revolution” in the 17th century and then became the philosophical basis of Critical Liberal Theology, which broke the tie between Western academic theology and Christian theism.

Dr Leonard Long is a retired doctor and a former student at Tabor College. He is very knowledgeable and interesting and you are encouraged to come and hear him.
