The 5 Smooth Stones of Liberal Religion were proposed by James Luther Adams, printed in his book of essays, "On Being Human Religiously". They were named for the stones David used to kill Goliath. The intent being that we can use these ideas to defend religious liberalism from conservatives of all types; ideas that just make sense, and lead naturally to liberal religious thought. JLA's version came as an essay roughly 12 pages long.
These are our original interpretation of his thoughts in graphic form, created for you to share. If you would like to download the graphic to share, please included the web addresses for our website and/or Facebook page

The Five Smooth Stones of Liberal Religion
🪨 Human understanding of the universe is constantly expanding. We do not claim absolutes in knowledge or truth, instead allowing our faith to grow with new revelations and discoveries.
🪨 Healthy relationships are always consensual and mutual. All lives are equally valuable. We should always treat others with dignity and respect, and expect the same in return.
🪨 It is our goal and our responsibility to create a just and loving community where people are free to find truth and give meaning to their own lives.
🪨 Good and evil are, primarily, a matter of human perspective on natural events or human endeavor in the world. If we want there to be good, as we know it, in the world, we must do good.
🪨 History teaches us to be optimistic and believe that humanity has the capacity to solve human problems. Progress is neither constant nor inevitable, but we persevere in the march toward greater peace, justice, and equity.
