    They address their prayers "To Whom It May Concern".

    nope they addressed their prayers to God 'the hearer of prayer' and in fact, the only privilege that he has not delegated to the Christ.

    That's how it began, and I understand the Universalism which merged with Unitarianism. But is it actually a God belief at all?

    Are you suggesting that Christians should not pray to the Lord Jesus Christ ?

    Paul prayed to the Lord Jesus Christ three times to have a thorn in the flesh removed.

    Stephen was stoned calling on the Lord and praying to Jesus.

    Of course. Unitarians just don't believe in all that nonsense about the trinity, which no sane person possibly could anyway.

    Paul prayed to the Lord Jesus Christ three times ...[text shortened]... a thorn in the flesh removed.

    Stephen was stoned calling on the Lord and praying to Jesus.[/b]
    That's exactly what i am saying, prayers are directed to the father, through the Christ.
    In fact what did Christ state, Matthew chapter six verse nine, Our father, hallowed by
    my name? nope hallowed be your name! Both Paul and Jesus entreated or petitioned
    the Christ.

    The Father is quite happy when we call on Jesus and pray to Jesus.

    I call on the Father and I call upon the Son. The prayer in Matthew is not a legality to follow mehanically.

    IT is a good model. And praying the Lord Jesus is absolutely splendid. There is no sin in it. It is quite glorious.

    such idolatry shall not go unpunished! can you find me one passage where Christ directed persons to pray to him? just one will do.

    I would not consider that appropriate. I believe the most
    appropriate way to address a prayer would be to the Father
    in the name of the Lord Jesus.

    Dr. Walter Martin said, "Unitarianism is a product of the deification
    of Reason, the rejection of Biblical authority and an indescribably
    fierce pride in one's ability to save himself from the awful penalty
    of sin."

    Unitarians may say they believe in God. But not the God of the
    trinity consisting of three persons, the Father, the Son, and the
    Holy Spirit. They deny the virgin birth and say Jesus was born
    like any other man and do not believe Jesus was "God in the flesh".
    They do not believe Jesus died for man's sin. But they do honor
    Him as a great spiritual teacher. They believe the Bible along with
    the writings of Buddha, Mohammed, Confucius, Lao and the Vedas
    and Upanishads are sources of revelation and have each given man
    something toward his religious growth and development, although
    none of these writings are infallible; and they accept evolution.

    Thast all sounds great. I had no idea what they beleved, but that sure more sane the Christian crap that makes one want to puke. I'll check out the Unitarians. I like the sound of it. Thanks.
