God is a Word For Human Experience

Dutch Vicar Tells His Congregation: This Life "Will Probably Be the Only One You Get"

Rev. Klaas Hendrikse, a reverend in the Dutch Protestant Church, apparently is taking a very modern, scientific approach to the supernatural, telling his congregation that this will probably be the only life that you get. He sums up his unique philosophy here:

"Personally I have no talent for believing in life after death. No, for me our life, our task, is before death. When it happens, it happens down to earth, between you and me, between people, that's where it can happen. God is not a being at all... it's a word for experience, or human experience."

Very interesting angle he is taking, and not one that will be spreading like wild fire through the ranks of the protestant church, but nice to see some religious leaders start to get a grip on reality and tell it like it is.
