UNITARIAN UNIVERSALISM


The History of Unitarian Universalism


The Unitarian Universalist cult is the result of the joining of the Unitarian religion with the Universalists.  The Unitarians got their start in the sixteenth century.  At that time, in central Europe, a group of humanists reviewed the Bible.  Finding no mention of the word “trinity”, the humanists affirmed the singular nature of God, and therefore called themselves Unitarians (Christians admit there is no mention of the word “trinity” in the Bible.  It is a word used to describe the triune nature of God – the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – which is fully Biblical.)  During the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, liberal religious groups studied the Bible and found only a few references to hell.  Not wanting to believe that such a place of eternal suffering existed, they chose to disregard its mention altogether, and instead formed a belief that all people will go to heaven regardless of belief, faith, or deed.  In other words, they believed that salvation was universal - hence the name, “Universalists”. 

These two religious movements continued on, growing in popularity due to their belief that no one personal is accountable to anyone but themselves.  As each grew more liberal, and more similar to the other, the two movements finally joined in 1961 to form the Unitarian Universalist cult.

General Unitarian Universalism Beliefs


Unitarian Universalism is a liberal religion that claims to be “born of the Jewish and Christian traditions.”  They believe that personal experience, conscience, and reason should be the final authorities in religion. In the end, religious authority lies not in a book, person, or institution, but in ourselves. We put religious insights to the test of our hearts and minds. In other words, the UU’s espouse a humanist believe of each individual in a position superior to God or scripture.    The UU believes that each individual’s spiritual path for truth should not be hampered by a creed or set of rules.  It describes itself as a “free faith.”  Past this, it is hard to be very specific.  If the UU cult believes in anything, it is everything, and it stands for nothing.  Whew!

UU Beliefs About God


UU’s are definitely not married to the concept of God.  Some UU’s claim to be Christians, while others claim to be agnostic, Buddhist, Hindu, or even pagan!  I really can’t describe their belief in God any better than they do in their own words.  Here is a sampling from the Unitarian Universalist Association website:  “Some Unitarian Universalists are nontheists and do not find language about God useful. The faith of other Unitarian Universalists in God may be profound, though among these, too, talk of God may be restrained. Why?  The word God is much abused. Far too often, the word seems to refer to a kind of granddaddy in the sky or a super magician. To avoid confusion, many Unitarian Universalists are more apt to speak of "reverence for life" (in the words of Albert Schweitzer, a Unitarian), the spirit of love or truth, the holy, or the gracious. Many also prefer such language because it is inclusive; it is used with integrity by theist and nontheist members.”  To sum up, the UU’s believe that belief in God is too exclusionary, so they don’t have much regard for its use.

UU Beliefs About Jesus


The UU belief about Jesus will not take more than a few sentences.  They UU's deny the deity of Jesus Christ.  Their belief on the nature of Jesus pretty much parallels that of the New Age -- that Jesus was an example of a good and moral man.  Nothing more, nothing less.  In light of this, it would be hard to call the UU cult Christian.

UU Beliefs About the Bible


The UU's do not believe - as Christians do - that the Bible is the infallible Word of God.  It is more of a guide than scripture to the UU.  Let us once again view the UUA's own words regarding their view of the Bible:  "We do not, however, hold the Bible-or any other account of human experience-to be either an infallible guide or the exclusive source of truth. Much biblical material is mythical or legendary. Not that it should be discarded for that reason! Rather, it should be treasured for what it is. We believe that we should read the Bible as we read other books (or the newspaper)-with imagination and a critical eye."  The UU sees the Bible as no more than a good issue of Readers Digest.

UU Beliefs About Salvation


Salvation to the UU is a guarantee.  They do not believe in Hell.  They do not believe that there is a penalty for sin.  As Christians, we believe there IS a penalty for sin, but that penalty has been paid for by the blood of Jesus Christ.  All each person has to do is to accept that.  But to the UU, that would seem exclusionary.  There is no sin, there is no penalty for sin, there is no hell, therefore, there is nothing to be saved from.  That is the belief of the UU.
