A movement, not a religion. An idea, not a sect. A lifestyle, not a label.
Jesism (pronounced: Jēs-ism like Jēsus) is for those who have a connection with the Jesus tradition, but who also value inclusivity, science, scholarship, and any other practice, teacher, or philosophy that better informs our reality and helps us live a better quality of life. It’s a paradigm that offers a liberating alternative to many of today’s mainstream expressions of Christianity, which tend to focus on strict agreement to a prescribed set of creeds and biblical interpretations, and are often co-opted with far right wing politics and religious fundamentalism. The best way get quickly up to speed on it is by checking out The 9 Guidelines. If your first reaction is to think that you don’t want another label, sect, or ism, see the response to Question 4 here.
The naming etymology is similar to the construction of the term Buddhism, which is based around the Buddha, and is pronounced Bood-ism. It is a fresh movement toward how we can relate to the teachings and example of Jesus, if that is something we wish to do. It acknowledges that we really don’t need yet another “ism” in the world, and that there are lots of beneficial paths, but it exists as a paradigm shift toward a new era of personal growth, alignment with our Source, and social justice for those who may be interested.
