The History of The Heretic: About Curtis Lee and Heresy of Truth

Leave a comment

Curtis The Misfit Mystic

Curtis grew up in an evangelical church and was convinced his destiny was to become a Christian pastor.  A short stint at  fundamentalist Bible college (the dean asked him not to come back!), Curtis began to question his faith.   After a decade of heart-felt seeking and tireless research, it was time to go public with his findings.  HeresyofTruth.com seeks to become a source of hope for all those who have been rejected by evangelical/fundamentalist Christian churches.  Curtis brings all his myriad of life experience into the thoughtful rants and heretical humor that is Heresy of Truth!

Goals of Heresy of Truth:

  1. To correct the flaws of fundamentalist dogma and help those who have been hurt by the Christianity find pathways to peace.
  2. Replacing that idea that God is a mythical being that dwells in the sky, with a faith practice that is applicable to everyday life.
  3. Respect people of all faith traditions, encouraging celebration of our differences and joy concerning the things that we have in common.
  4. Be funny and look pretty while doing the first 3!
