Jesus as a Moral Philosopher and Secular Humanist

I meant to post this closer to the christian holiday but i forgot. This is a link to a fantastic podcast "Philosophy Bites". They recently did a show where their guest Don Cupitt talks about Jesus. Cupitt claims that the "real" Jesus is an overlooked humanist philosopher rather than the son of God. Really interesting work. As for the relevance here?
Well he compares Jesus to Marx at one point. Check it out.

Interesting posts you have, though I think Christianity is dead and will be redeemed and brought to fruition and perfection through Thelema. Check out my blog at http://christianityisdead.wordpress.com/ if you will. Love is the law, love under will. ;)
