Studying Unitarianism

Studying Unitarianism

We must not look for religion in creeds or formularies of human invention. We must look for it in the honest, the pious, the devotional heart; in the heart which truly loves God, loves its sister and brother also. The principle of love to God and goodwill is true religion.
– Hosea Ballou (1771-1852)

Better an adventurous heretic than a numbed conformist.
– Archbishop of York Stuart Blanch 1982

Modern Unitarianism is now characterised not so much by its beliefs as by its insistence upon the fundamental principles of entire freedom in belief, the full use of reason in religion, and generous tolerance of differences of view.
– Encyclopaedia of Religion
