Unitarians feel free to study literature from all sources.

What was I thinking. You could be gnostic believer and not even have to change churches. Heck, any belief at all:

"Pagans, Wiccans, and people who follow other earth-based spiritual traditions are welcome in Unitarian Universalist congregations.… to connect with other Unitarian Universalist Pagans, please visit the website of the Covenant of UU Pagans.

"Currently there are a small number of Unitarian Universalists who also identify as Hindu or Muslim, and their ranks may grow in the future."

Or no belief:
"Atheists are people who do not believe in a god, while Agnostics are people who think that we cannot know whether a god exists. Both groups are welcome in Unitarian Universalism."
Now, the cute trick is to be UU and criticize the beliefs of another's faith. Doing so in a Christian context is a hat trick.

Currently there is a not an insignificant number of Catholics who identify as Unitarians. Their ranks are growing day by day.

Or no belief:
"Atheists are people who do not believe in a god, while Agnostics are people who think that we cannot know whether a god exists. Both groups are welcome in Unitarian Universalism."

Heck, even you are welcome. There is no litmus test.

Now, the cute trick is to be UU and criticize the beliefs of another's faith. Doing so in a Christian context is a hat trick.

Though I am not entirely certain exactly what you have in mind though I suspect it concerns my recent discourse with one of your "good buddies".

I am not aware of criticizing the faith of this person. Rather, I critized the willingness to accept and defend acknowledged forgeries and fraudulent documents as articles of faith.

Remember, Unitarians accept all faiths and even non-faiths.

I believe you and I have had sufficient "conversations" over the past few years that you are well aware of my philosophy and beliefs. Though I have evovled somewhat my basic philosophy is unchanged. Thus it is not necessary to continue, with me at least, your "lessons" on Unitarianism.

Though I am an old geezer my memory, and my database, is pretty good.

For example, an exchange which took place in 2007.

Could an independent thinking Unitarian Universalist disagree with the beliefs of Unitarian Universalism, speak and teach his/her opposing view, and continue in the good graces Unitarian Universalism?

Obviously you are not familiar with Unitarianism. A Unitarian could believe the sun revolves around the earth and still remain in good standing.

To be blunt, some Unitarians and Unitarian congregations are crackpots. They have no creed and no cast in concrete beliefs.

Though I attend the local Unitarian Church sporadically I am not a member.

Actually, I don't believe Unitarianism is considered Christian though some individial Unitarians may well be Christians.

That tired old horse is dead. It's about time to stop beating it.

As long as the horse is producing the same waste... it’s alive.

Mark, is this official stance of the RCC? Or even most of the "faithful"?

"There is no reason no to supppose that Paul's epistles were massaged."

You really believe that? "All SCRIPTURE is given by INSPIRATION of God..." 2 Tim. 3:16.

Massaged? You really seem to have no understanding of the Word of God, if you believe that man "massaged" His Word of Truth.

Paul was such a "pushy" guy that he was inspired to write, BY THE HOLY SPIRIT, "For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles; I magnify mine office." Rom. 11:13. Sounds "pushy" UNTIL you understand that it was by inspiration of God, not pride or self-importance that he wrote that.

We know that Paul says BY INSPIRATION OF THE HOLY SPIRIT that he was the chief of sinners, saved by grace, while Christ was the Holy Son of God and the Savior of sinners.

It is not the person of Paul but the POSITION of Paul that makes him say that he is the Apostle of the Gentiles, he magnifies his office. He was given his commission and authority to preach the Mystery, hid in God from the foundation of the world. To preach the gospel of the grace of God, to form the Church the Body of Christ, and to be a pattern to those who would, after him, believe on Christ to life everlasting.

Does the Scripture just mean what is says when you like what you read? It sounds like you're saying Paul wasn't a "real" apostle. Christ says differently.
