God the Invisible King - By H. G. Wells. God the Invisible King is a theological tract published by H.G. Wells in 1917. Wells describes his aim as to state "as forcibly and exactly as possible the religious belief of the writer." He distinguishes his religious beliefs from Christianity, and warns readers that he is "particularly uncompromising" on the doctrine of the Trinity, which he blames on "the violent ultimate crystallization of Nicaea.." In the name of a "modern religion" or "renascent religion" that has "no revelation and no founder," Wells rejects any belief related to the God-as Nature or the Creator, confining his belief to the "finite" God "of the human heart. He devotes a chapter to misconceptions of God due to mistaken "mental elaboration" as opposed "heresies of speculation," and says that the God in which he believes has nothing to do with magic, providence, quietism, punishment, the threatening of children, or sexual ethics. Positively, in a chapter entitled "The Likeness of God," he states his belief that God is courage, a person, youth (i.e. forward- rather than backward-looking), and love. Wells finds in scientific atheists like Metchnikoff beliefs that are equivalent to what he regards as "the fundamental proposition of religious translated into terms of materialistic science, the proposition that damnation is really over-individuation and that salvation is escape from self into the larger being of life."
