New book by Frédéric Zürcher claims religion has misconstrued God’s message at the expense of love

If there is a God who created logical beings, he must also be a God of logic, and therefore his approach to the problems of the world must also be practical and logical in nature.

Educator and businessman, Frédéric Zürcher, has spent the past 30 years studying theology, combing through the Bible and researching various religions because something just didn’t sit right with him about the premise of Christianity.

“I have always been disturbed by the idea that a loving God would require the death of his son to make forgiveness possible,” Zürcher said. “No father would require blood from an innocent child to pay for his other children’s mistakes.”

In Zürcher’s new book, “Idolatry of Blood: Religion for a Post-Modern World,” he presents his findings and solutions to bring religion back to its logical roots. He hopes to encourage readers to reconsider all traditional views they have of religion and adopt a more logical approach.

“The religions of our world are founded on mystical beliefs and related expectations than practical and logical approaches to improve society,” Zürcher said. “If there is a God who created logical beings, he must also be a God of logic, and therefore his approach to the problems of the world must also be practical and logical in nature.”

Zürcher argues that if a religion does not help a person become more loving, it should not be called a religion. “Idolatry of Blood” goes into more detail about why and how religions have seemingly failed to produce greater love in the human heart only because the message of God has been corrupted.

“The key to solving the problem of evil is greater love,” Zürcher said. “Jesus did not come to change anything; he came to reiterate, once again, at the price of the cross, that the way to greater love had already been revealed.”
