Introduction to Deism


Enlightenment deism began in 1624 when Herbert of Cherbury published his first book. Famous deists included Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, Thomas Paine, as well as Voltaire and Rousseau.

The vast majority of the Enlightenment deists were not secular figures trying to banish God from their lives. They cared deeply about God and their relationship with God.

Many deists, including Ben Franklin and Thomas Jefferson, revered Jesus. Many thought he did miracles. But he did not save humanity from original sin. He only taught deism, that is love of God and benevolence to other people. They were Christian deists.

    As a modern, warm Deist I appreciate the elucidation on natural religion. These caused me to publish a book that has stood the test of time since 2007. I only add that we don’t obviate God’s easy capability in reaching everyone as His special onus.
