Unitarian Universalist Churches, the epitome of wokeness in American churches that’s not about Jesus
The Puritans split
The Puritans who came to America founded churches that were typically called “First Church of ‘place'” that was called congregational churches. They were governed by a congregation vote, not by bishops or elders.
The Congregational Churches split in the early 19th Century, and many adopted a Unitarian theology. By the mid-20th Century, the Congregationalists became part of the United Church of Christ (with a few dissenting Congregationalists who remained independent or formed new denominations).
The Unitarians became part of the Unitarian Universalist Association, which we know today.
They love social justice, not the gospel
On August 24, 2020, a Marxist-atheist group set multiple dealership cars on fire in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Arsonists destroyed the livelihood and jobs of innocent civilians. Bradford Unitarian church was in that neighborhood.
Like other universalist churches, Bradford does not have a cross as a church marker on their building. Instead, PRIDE colors are represented in many activities. They typify what a “woke church” is in America.
Today’s ecumenism is not of God
The Bible is opposed to an ecumenism of believers and unbelievers. Instead, God tells His people to come out and be separated (2 Corinthians 6:17). We cannot be unequally yoked with unbelievers (2 Corinthians 6:14-18).
In fact, God’s chosen people were only Jews, not Filipinos, not Chinese. But because of His graciousness, gentiles worldwide can claim to be God’s children by faith in Christ.
In short, you must belong to Jesus. Paganism or agnosticism has no place in heaven. Jesus is “The way,” not one of the ways. No one comes to the Father except through Him (John 14:6).
Biblical ecumenism is not a blend of religion or faith but of people from different races with differing strengths, weaknesses, or social classes—who are united by faith in the one true God, Jesus!
Unitarian Universalist is not Christianity
Churches like Bradford have bits and pieces that suggest they’re Christian, but they’re clearly not. They are part of a growing movement of woke churches that leans to the left and are liberal.
