Of all his works I chose this one, because I wanted to know what he thought was left of Jesus once you remove the traditional Christian belief system. I'm disappointed to say the book doesn't really go there. The problem is that the book is mis-titled. It's not specifically about Jesus or his teachings/5(). You should not be a Unitarian Universalist if that's all you believe. We expect a lot more than that. We expect beliefs that carry through in concern for those around you and if you don't have them, you should not be a Unitarian Universalist. You should not be a Unitarian Universalist if you expect the minister to always have the same views you do.

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. UUs’ thoughts on Jesus reflect the diversity of thought encouraged by our liberal faith. Our Principles include a commitment to “a free and responsible search for truth and meaning”; whatever one’s views, there is likely a UU who shares them.
Yet we are more than our individual stories. Unitarian Universalism is a religion that claims. A helpful place to start is to ask whether Jesus pre-existed his own miraculous conception in the womb of Mary. I am not one of those who denies the Virgin birth.
It is clear that Jesus himself knew God was His Father in a unique sense and that his conception was different to all others. This book is a forlorn, weak, apology for those UUs who choose to think that the Jesus myths and the Christ myths are worthy thought conditioners for improving theological discussions between Christians and UUs, but his arguments are not compelling and out of synch with an interfaith dialogue aimed at seeking the most plausible truths.6/10(1).
Jesus is one of the greatest religious teachers, and Unitarians endorse his prophetic teaching, his moral teaching, and his spiritual insight. But Unitarians of all times have stubbornly refused to “make a god” of one who was so utterly human in all his words and deeds, and.

From his study of the Bible, Jefferson concluded that Jesus never claimed to be God. In Jefferson composed a "Syllabus of an Estimate of the Merit of the Doctrines of Jesus" of the comparative merits of Christianity, after having read the pamphlet "Socrates and Jesus Compared" by the Unitarian minister Dr.
Joseph Priestley. The term Unitarian is sometimes applied today to those who belong to a Unitarian church but do not hold a Unitarian theological belief.  In the past, the vast majority of members of Unitarian churches were Unitarians also in theology. Over time, however, some Unitarians and Unitarian Universalists moved away from the traditional Christian roots of Unitarianism.
The divinity school was established at Harvard in and “became the centre of Unitarian thought.” In influential Presbyterian pastor William Ellery Channing publicly espoused Unitarianism in his “Baltimore Sermon.” Channing was minister of Federal Street Congregational Church in Boston.
The Racovian Catechism, one of the great doctrinal works of the Unitarian movement of the 14th and 15th centuries, states that the word “beginning” in John refers to the beginning of the new dispensation and thus is similar to Markwhich starts, “The. Unitarian Universalism (UU) is a liberal religion characterized by a "free and responsible search for truth and meaning".
Unitarian Universalists assert no creed, but instead are unified by their shared search for spiritual growth, guided by a dynamic, "living tradition".Currently, these traditions are summarized by the Six Sources and Seven Principles of Unitarian Universalism, documents Founder: Members of American Unitarian.
Transylvania is where some of the first Unitarians built their churches, and formed their faith, right about the same time that Copernicus wrote his book about the Earth revolving around the sun.

Before he answered my question, Buzzard posted a YouTube video quoting selectively from my book Putting Jesus in His Place and attempting to make a case that I was knowingly contradicting Jesus’ own teaching.
He then sent me another private Facebook message saying he thought the conversation should be with everyone. On July 3,I was sent a link to a then free Kindle edition Anthony Buzzard's book, Jesus Was Not a Trinitarian. While Anthony Buzzard is correct that Jesus was not a trinitarian, unlike Anthony Buzzard, Jesus was also not unitarian.
Anthony Buzzard holds to a unitarian view of the Godhead. "And Jesus strengthens his argument by adding the statement, which sounded strange to the Jews, that he had even been 'before Abraham' (v.
58). This last saying must be understood in connection with v. Jesus speaks in vv. 55, 56 and 58 as if his present ministry on earth stretches back to the time of Abraham and even before. This book is Thomas Jefferson's attempt to distill from the gospels the ethical teachings of Jesus.
It presents Jesus purely as a teacher; no chorus of angels marks his birth, he performs no miracles, and the book ends with his burial/5. Jesus (c.
4 BC – c. AD 30 / 33), also referred to as Jesus of Nazareth or Jesus Christ, was a first-century Jewish preacher and religious leader. He is the central figure of Christians believe he is the incarnation of God the Son and the awaited Messiah (the Christ) prophesied in the Old Testament.
Virtually all modern scholars of antiquity agree that Jesus existed Born: c. 4 BC, Judea, Roman Empire. Caught up in Jesus’ public ignominy, his family comes to arrest Jesus when they hear he is regarded to be insane (Mark ).
Later scribes working on Mark (Matthew and Luke included) attempted to mitigate this embarrassing move by deleting the family’s presence from the story.The Faith of Unitarian Universalist Christians I seek to know Jesus because his rallying cry was similar to the one I was brought up to Becoming a Christian in my twenties, I thought I’d have to leave Unitarian Universalism, the tradition of my childhood.
But I didn’t want to. Theologically, I am Unitarian and Universalist.There are different ways to approach the meaning of John 1: without accepting that Jesus Christ preexisted his human birth. Although we will draw the conclusion and submit there is but one God and Father, and one Lord Jesus Christ, our hope in this split presentation is to suggest an alternative explanation with very little if any change in the traditional translation.
