I think what he did shows he really cared
and that's better than memorizing and marking
about in a big group enforcing standard interpretations. If I may venture to say it,
I think Jesus would like it better than most
ways of using his words.

Ben Franklin wrote: "As to Jesus of Nazareth, my opinion of whom you particularly desire, I think the system of morals and his religion, as he left them to us, the best the world ever saw or is likely to see; but I apprehend it has received various corrupting changes, and I have, with most of the present dissenters in England, some doubts of his divinity."

to Ezra Styles March 9, 1790
from The Great Thoughts, compiled by George Seldes

Personally, I do not doubt Jesus' divinity. Rather, I may variously define divinity in ways which alternately include or do not include various parts of the universe.
