J. Steven Henthorne is a mystic philosopher with a B.A. in Classical Languages from LSU. After nine years of intense work he now presents the blueprint for the religion he calls Amorism, dedicated to the worship of Love as the Supreme Being, and to the practice of self-government through direct democracy.
John Steven Henthorne was born the son of Corporal (E-4) John Charles Henthorne, Jr. of the U.S. Army and Merilyn Janet Artman Henthorne on Oct. 15, 1965 at the American Hospital in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France. A few months later he and his parents were back in the United States where most of his early childhood was spent in New Wilmington, PA. In August, 1975 the Family, now including a second son, Gerald Ray Henthorne, moves to Baton Rouge, LA, where Steven has spent most of his adult life, graduating from Louisiana State University in May of 1989 with a BA in Classical Languages (concentrating in Latin) and a minor in History. Portions of Steven's biography are given within the text of The Manifesto of Love.
Throughout his life Steven has studied mysteries and philosophies in an effort to know what is. He left Christianity after concluding from Bible study that Jesus is not the Messiah who was prophesied, and since then has been seeking a path that most truly obeys the will of God. The Manifesto of Love is the result of that search, combining worship, morality, and ministry with the political guidelines to achieving a united humanity.
The moral dimension of Amorism is derived from the Covenant of Noah (Noachism), and from the Qabala. An optional, and mystical, aspect of worship is also derived from the Kabbalistic Tree of Life.
The worshipful aspect of Amorism is called the Path of Love. The Path of Noah is the secular aspect of Amorism, dealing with matters of legislation, administration, and justice. The Manifesto of Love provides guidelines for establishing a federated and constitutional democracy within a network of areas of administration, which shall apply also to ecclesiastical organization.
