The Practical Side of Heaven

Introduction by William C. Kiefert, who was born in 1938 and passed away in 2003. My book, The Practical Side of Heaven, can be considered a comprehensive guide to understanding Gnostic Christianity. It can also be seen as an introduction to an original way to better understand our relationship with others and ourselves. The Practical Side of Heaven, the "Outlawed" Logic/Logos Teachings of Jesus, can be considered a wake up call not only for theologians and academics, but also for those searching for better answers. The core concept of Jesus' Gnostic teaching is universally true and therefore important to everyone--religious or not. Ecclesiastics' famous quote "there is nothing new under the sun" is not true. There is a better way. This new and better way is Jesus' Gnostic/knowledge teachings explained in detail in this book. The Practical Side of Heaven, the "Outlawed" Logic/Logos Teachings of Jesus systematically explains not only the core premise of Jesus' teaching--that we are not yet fully conscious because we are slaves of judgmental reasoning; but it also explains that the way free ourselves and to become fully awake human beings is to learn about nonjudgmental/spiritual reasoning. Nonjudgmental reasoning empowers us to "do on earth as it is in heaven." My book can also be seen as a bridge across time. It introduces the reader to contemporary psychological and philosophical concepts that corresponds to similar concepts in Jesus' time. Being able to cross that bridge empowers us to clearly see through the eyes of Jesus and other Gnostic Christians because, in principle, the context or worldview you will have after reading my book will be theirs. The web site,, is a synopsis of my book, The Practical Side of Heaven. This site contains many of the salient concepts in the book, but not all. To fully understand all the concepts that were important to Gnostic Christians, like Jesus, John and Paul, having the uncut version of my book is essential. It contains everything my website does, plus information that is essential for personal growth and study groups.

About the Author

William C. Kiefert was born in Milwaukee, Wis., on Sept. 19, 1937, and passed away in Jacksonville, Fla., on Dec. 1, 2003. One of four sons, Mr. Kiefert entered the U.S. Navy in 1955 and began his education in electronics that served him throughout his life. The father of five children, his vast extended family included legions of extremely close friends and comrades around the world. Together with his former wife, Dr. Virginia Martin, Kiefert operated Master Electric Inc. and an early pre-fab home business in Wisconsin while raising their children through the early 70s, then relocated to the Tampa area. There, they pursued multiple opportunities and ultimately built and operated a commercial fishing boat. At that point in time, Kiefert followed a deep internal drive to study philosophy, psychology and theology. These self-guided studies, conducted at Marquette, the Universities of Wisconsin and South Florida and Florida State and many private religious and philosophical seminars, led him to become a prominent advocate of what he termed Jesus' private gnostic teachings as resources for the attainment of individual and social peace equating to "heaven on earth." His published works include the article "The ABCs of Higher Consciousness and Social Logic" and the books The Gnostic Christian Interpretation of The Gospel of John, The Gnostic Christian Interpretation of Paul's Letter to the Romans, and The Practical Side of Heaven... all of which are available at Those wishing to honor Mr. Kiefert are asked to visit and contribute to this website, to personally explore and carry on the ideas which meant the world to him.
