UNITARIANISM [745]

I have thought to post on the subject of Unitarianism because the “xxxxxx xxxxxx” have attached a link to a post on my site because it calls Jehovah’s witnesses a cult or sect. They have explicitly created a blog to publish links to all sites that are critical of Jehovahs witnesses, and I guess also any who oppose themselves or any other form of Unitarianism, which is rather extraordinary but reveals the mentality involved.

I came across this xxxxxx group some time ago, who claim to be xxxxxx(which also turns out is Unitarian), but who seem fairly unaware of the views of other xxxxxxand even of their founding originators, xxxxxx and xxxxxx. In amongst their doctrinal claims appeared to be that all manner of laws had to be kept (they quoted more than 300 of them), and including practically every word that Jesus uttered became a “commandment of Christ” which had to be kept to the letter in order for you to be saved.

This would appear to be just the tip of the iceberg of those groups who have lost the plot well and truly, or perhaps never did “have the plot”. It is essential to the purity of Christianity that people come into the knowledge of their freedom from sin and death which Jesus achieved for them, because it is only this freedom [of spirit, in the Spirit] that empowers them to go forward confidently in the knowledge that all condemnation has been lifted, so as not to impede the apprehension of the kingdom of God, nor to impede any progress in this direction of understanding that God’s love releases them even as it captivates them.

Before any further details emerge, it appears there are many who have taken up the cause of AntiChrist by retaining systems of law, similar to the Judaistic (Moses) system, thereby retaining and enabling the power of the flesh to continue in its corruptive ways. They introduce Christ to their religions, but only as a powerless Christ, who seems to better fit the description of another Adam than as the only begotten son of the living God, and who was to become the promised and given Holy Spirit at Pentecost.

The key to all this is their misunderstanding of the cross, the atonement, and it is usually here that all deviant groups fail. This pervasive and insidious continuation of Judaism is that which was always present from the beginning, and Paul in Galatians points this out quite clearly as the Spirit in opposition to the law. xxxxxx and Jehovahs witnesses seem obsessed with denying the “trinity” and perhaps that is a clue to why they seem to want to deny salvation unless it comes through their particular systems of religion. They deny the Holy Spirit and they deny that Jesus literally bore all our sin for all time and on that cross released us from it. Obviously if they can keep Jesus from having “Godlike” status then they can reduce his power and authority so that salvation then is more easily controlled by them and their doctrines, by which their adherents are enslaved to legalisms, which yes, have caused breakdowns, suicide and murder.

Here are some site links to Unitarianism. Firstly two to JW’s

[It appears from their site that these xxxxxx have ties with JW’s via some of their members years ago being involved with “Judge Rutherford”, of  the JW’s.]

[xxxxxx notably xxxxxx, have stated that animal sacrifices will be reintroduced and that they would personally be executing non-xxxxxx during the “Millenium”]. There may be other “Unitarians”, I suppose Judaism is one, but there are others titled “Unitarian” churches. In some of these Christian derived groups (not Judaism)  the pressure to “be righteous” is so great that the breakdown of family relationships, depression and suicide is always lurking. I have personal knowledge of such things, and there is much on the web concerning them.][Roberts dissents from Unitarianism].

Unitarianism is basically the belief that God is one, IE no trinity and no divine Jesus. And  no Holy Spirit.

CULTS AND SECTS – Jehovahs witnesses [702a]

Cults and sects disseminate misinformation about salvation and turn many people from the truth of it all. They get much of it wrong, and sometimes as in this case it is something quite silly, being whether Christ’s cross was a cross or a pole. [who cares].

The reason for this seems to parallel Mel Gibson’s film which graphically depicted an horrific  physical onslaught on Jesus’ body. The reason the physical aspect is depicted in such an extreme way, appears to be to lessen any other aspect of it, which may lean contrary to that which they teach. (So they teach that a pole is more torturous than a cross). They do this because they teach that the whole of the power of the atonement is related to Christ’s physical suffering. (Related to their “ransom” theory.)

So if their atonement teaching is deficient in the correct aspects of Christ’s inner emotional torment and his mental anguish as he grapples with sin, they will instead want to emphasise the physical suffering a lot more. Plus it’s just another thing they can use to pick on the conventional church with.

Their credibility is already pretty much zero with most people, just the blood transfusion issue is enough for most people to realise the nonsense of it without all the rest. And of course in common with other cults is the exclusivity and shunning of family members who leave their group, not to mention the covering up of sexual misconduct within their ranks. Then there are the Christmas and birthday celebrations they say they don’t participate in, only to have substitute ones about the same time instead.

I came across a web site which has taken them head on with this cross/stake issue and probably more also, explaining it in great depth, and because it was there I attempted to provide a link to it, but it somehow has eluded me. [It was connected with Randall Watters of  “Free minds, Inc.”]. There are many web articles on this matter though, and seeing as how I have come this far with the post, I will post it anyway.

[Just another cult, and another antichrist].
