    As I was reading the articles of faith of a Unitarian Universalist "church," one particularly caught my attention. It accurately defines Arminian thinking.

    "We 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."

    I do not post this to criticize Arminians per se, but so often when I debate with Arminians, it ends up to be a discussion on what is fair and just from the viewpoint of man. I can supply Scripture after Scripture to an Arminian, and it does not mean anything.

    By your post you indicate you know nothing of Arminianism!

    The ability to post scripture upon scripture is no indication of understanding the scriptures either.

    I dont think that there are any unitarian universalists here to discuss this.

    I think its a christian cult myself.

    I don't know that Unitarians meet the definition of a cult. I would describe them as liberal theologically as they do not believe in the exclusivity of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
