I started the blog in 2008 to seek answers to how closely Christian churches actually followed the words of Jesus Christ. What I found after almost five years of study was that while there are now almost 39,000 different versions of Christianity practically none of them appear to center their doctrine or practices around Jesus’ words as found in the red letters of many bibles. Many seem to almost ignore his words and especially his commands! They want to concentrate on the man-made rules and beliefs that were formulated many years after Jesus left this earth. It surprised me that some denominations are fixated on what to believe and how to exclude those who don’t align with their beliefs than how to act and how to love!
One of the results of this study is that I no longer call myself a Christian. I thought that word was polluted then but I couldn’t have imagined how much it would be polluted five years later! I began calling myself “Spiritual but not religious”!
In 2014, I had come to the conclusion that I had little else to say about the topic, but I left the blog open as an archive and it continued to get views during this six year hiatus.
In January 2019 I thought it was time to get RedLetterLiving up to date so I re-opened the blog with one or two posts a week. A lot happened during that dormant period. Some of it good, but much of it was bad.
I am re-opening this site with an expanded agenda in mind. It will be interesting to see where it goes…
