Joseph C. Way rejects the notion of a divine Jesus and all that goes with it while providing insights on how humans think, believe, and behave in his new book “Bound by Beliefs: Searching for Truth about God, Jesus, and Us” (published by Archway Publishing).

Way shares that people must value something above all else and that whatever they value becomes their “god” who dictates beliefs and behaviors. He discusses how numerous people have sought and still seek to tell individuals who their god should be and what that god demands of them, but society has been most affected by the Jewish and Christian communities. These communities promoted beliefs and behaviors that Way says were not based on “ultimate truth, known facts, appropriate love, logic, practicality and common sense.”

“Since beliefs are extremely important, know what you believe and why,” Way encourages readers. “Believe Jesus’s directives for ‘salvation’ and not Paul’s. Believe Jesus and act like it. Appropriate love is the only adequate guide for life as well as a cause for which to die.”
