That's a straightforward answer ... but then I've always known that, you wear your Unity lightly.With respect in the belief and spirituality corral is "I don't care" too straight forward? I mean it is not a requirement.
I just spoke out because the Unity quote actually promoted contra-Biblical ideology. I wonder how many of its more ardent members realise that.
Well you may laugh it off, but then you don't care ...Unity thought, New Thought, considered blasphemous by more orthodox sects? Say it ain't so!
I do wonder if Unity members who don't read the small-print are being taken in – then again, maybe they know, it's just easier and more comfortable to turn a blind eye.
I see it more in line with the New Thought movement of the 19th century – Quimby, Mesmer etc.Transcendentalism has its origins in New England of the early 1800s and the birth of Unitarianism. It was born from a debate between “New Light” theologians, who believed that religion should focus on an emotional experience, and “Old Light” opponents, who valued reason in their religious approach.
I thought William James summed it up quite succinctly.
