    For the past two thousand years, Christian traditions that trace their teachings back to the life of Jesus have expanded and spread. Contemporary Christianity consists of three major branches (the Catholic Church, Orthodox Christian churches, and Protestantism) and claims more followers than any other religion—including just over 70% of the American population.   To most Christians for the past years, the answer has been a firm Yes. To them, the question was settled in the fourth century at the Council of Nicea, which proclaimed Christ to be “God of God, Light of Light of one essence with the Father” in its Christological creed (Christology being the study of Christ’s nature).

      Like the Apostle Paul, I am amazed at how quickly Christians are willing to deny the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and exchange it for false promises of salvation by works, false religions, and false deities. Unitarian Universalism is entirely contrary to the Gospel and to the Word of God, and we need to recognize this. BOOK 6 - PAUL'S LETTER TO THE ROMANS. I - THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST, AND "JUSTIFICATION BY FAITH" PAUL'S EAGERNESS TO SHARE THE GOSPEL WITH THE CHRISTIANS OF ROME. Romans 1: Greetings from Paul, an Apostle of the Gospel of the risen Christ, son of God - also 1: 7 Blessings and prayers.

    Unitarian Christians regard the Bible as a sacred book because it brings us near to God by placing us in communion with the deepest and loftiest experiences of other humans who searched for God. Many of its authors were successful in their search and, on occasions of divine inspiration, discovered and revealed divine truths.   They are cultural Christians, in that their services borrow a whole lot from typical Protestant ones. Unitarian was historically Christian, the big difference being that they thought there was only one God, not three (so they rejected the Trinity.

The gospel of Matthew () claims that Jesus’ birth in Bethlehem fulfils this prophecy. But this is unlikely since “Bethlehem Ephratah” in Micah refers not to a town, but to a clan: the clan of Bethlehem, who was the son of Caleb’s second wife, Ephrathah (1 Chr,).

While Islam is the world's largest "unitarian" religion in number of adherents, this article will focus on unitarians who claim to be Christian. (One reason that Islam will be ignored is that it teaches that the essentially the entire Bible has been corrupted by Jews and Christians, hence no statement from the Bible would be considered.

The fifth book, the Book of Acts, traditionally believed to be written by Luke, as well, is the story of the Apostles and Paul and what they did after Jesus ascended into Heaven.

I choose to place my main focuses on Matthew, Mark, Luke, and Acts, as I believe this is the truest and most accurate representation of the Gospel. Written for both Christian and non-Christian Unitarian Universalists, this book is a goldmine of history, theology, and wisdom from his lived experience as college chaplain, Unitarian Universalist minister, and practicing Christian.

—Rev. Kathleen C. Rolenz, editor of Christian Voices in Unitarian Universalism6/10(1). Unitarianism (from Latin unitas "unity, oneness", from unus "one") is a Christian theological movement named for its belief that the God in Christianity is one person, as opposed to the Trinity (tri- from Latin tres "three"), which in most other branches of Christianity defines God as one being in three persons: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Unitarian Christians, therefore, believe that. The Claims of the Gospels Are Under Attack: When surveyed, young members of the church are less and less convinced that the gospel accounts are reliable. 63% don't believe that Jesus is the Son of the one true God. 51% don't believe that Jesus rose from the dead (Josh McDowell, The Last Christian Generation, ).

In her weighty book, Doubt: A History, philosopher and poet Jennifer Michael Hecht describes the difference Christianity introduced into the realm of doubt. While still having some wonderfully ambiguous books in its canon, such as Ecclesiastes (which reads like a treatise on living with uncertainty), Judaism of the second century B.C.E.

Classically, Unitarian Universalist Christians have understood Jesus as a savior because he was a God-filled human being, not a supernatural being. He was, and still is for many UUs, an exemplar, one who has shown the way of redemptive love, in whose spirit anyone may live generously and abundantly.

UNITARIAN CHRISTIANITY by William Ellery Channing Delivered at the Ordination of Rev. Jared Sparks in The First Independent Church of Baltimore on May 5, 1 Thes.

"Prove all things; hold fast that which is good." There are two natural divisions under which my thoughts will be arranged. Branch agreed. “Any religion like orthodox Christianity that says there is one is essentially false [to a UU believer],” he said.

Unitarian Universalism actually has its roots in Unitarianism – denial of the Trinity – “principally in relation to negating the deity of Christ,” Jim Beverley, professor of Christian Thought and Ethics at Tyndale University, told the CP.

The premise of the sermon is Rev. Rod Richards' claim that "Unitarian Universalist are Christians and Buddhists and Mystics and Atheists." Rev. Rod Richards claims that their atheist parishioners are indicative "of just how unique our religious community is in this world." He points out that.

Begun in in England, and then migrating to the United States inUnitarianism touts itself as an “open-minded and individualistic” religion that is allegedly a “restoration” of ancient Christianity. It is a claim that nearly all anti-Christian cults make in order to give credence to its otherwise incredible claims; more on.

Jesus did not claim to be God. In the Gospel according to John it is recorded that Jesus said " the Father is greater than I" (). That a prophet would even state this is unlikely as there was no doubt in the minds of the early followers of the Gospel that God was one and no human could claim divine attributes.

Such notions were pagan. Trinitarian claim: `Also in the Gospel of Mark we have the trial of Jesus (). Those trial proceedings are one of the clearest references to Jesus' claims of deity.' McDowellUnitarian Answer: The attempt of the rulers to fasten a blasphemy charge on Jesus does not prove Jesus' claim to deity.

Jesus' clear affirmation of his. Walking into one of today's remnant Unitarian Universalist churches, the visitor is as likely to encounter a self-professed Wiccan, Buddhist or atheist as any who will admit to the 'Christian' name: "Today, Unitarians who even claim Christian allegiance represent somewhere between 10 and 20 percent of the total movement.".

The History of Universalism Universalism is a major spiritual tradition dating back to the Apostles of Jesus Christ and the ancient Christian church. It is an understanding of the Gospel that has inspired saints, mystics, philosophers, theologians, and churches in nearly every era of religious history from the time of Jesus to today.

By Ken R. Vincent. Universal Salvation is the theological position that ALL people will be saved. This concept, present from the earliest days of Christianity, is supported by numerous verses in the Bible, second in number only to those advocating Salvation by Good salists do not reject the undeniable fact that Hell is in the Bible but contend that the function of Hell is for.

Some accuse Christians of being arrogant and narrow because they claim that Jesus is the only way to God. In this clip, Randy responds that it would indeed be arrogant if you or I came up with that idea.

But it was Jesus himself, who is God, that said he is the only way to the Father. See Randy's book The Grace and Truth Paradox for more.

A riveting journey through Christianity using the analytical lenses of a former atheist and L.A. County homicide detective!Christianity, with all of its claims could easily be described as a 'cold-case'; a case for which insufficient hard evidence exists to make any sound conclusions about its truth claims.

However, in Cold-Case Christianity, J. Warner Wallace uses his nationally acclaimed. A wide-ranging study that covers the Gospel of Barnabas, the Gospel of Hermes, the shepherd, early and later Unitarian Christians, and Jesus in the gospels and in the Qur'an and hadith, Jesus: Prophet of Islam argues persuasively that the idea of Jesus as part of a trinity was a Greek pagan concept adopted by early Christian missionaries to Reviews:.

Unitarian Universalists use many biblical concepts and terms but with non-biblical meanings. Unitarianism is not Christian. There is a group known as the Unitarian Universalist Association. This denomination which was formed in in the United States when the American Unitarian Association and the Universalist Church of America merged.The Pope's lengthy answer, reprinted in full at the bottom of this article, contained numerous notable remarks illustrating the Pope's views on evangelism, including: [Speaking of having Jewish and Muslim friends]: "We are all the same, all children of God." "It didn't occur to me, and it doesn't have to be like, saying to a boy or a girl: 'You are Jewish, you are Muslim: come, be converted!'".Though Unitarianism and Universalism were both liberal Christian traditions, this responsible search has led us to embrace diverse teachings from Eastern and Western religions and philosophies.

Unitarian Universalists believe more than one thing. We think for ourselves, and reflect together, about important questions: The existence of a Higher.
