I am a Christian who tends to think outside the box. I am interested in other religions and I in NO WAY think that Christianity corners the market on God.

Never did.

So do not quote the Bible to me. I know it well.

How does Unity differ from Unitarianism - other than the Christian emphasis?
Or from B'haia Faith?

The socioeconomic groups seem different.
I am a social and political liberal but I found U.U. to be inresponsive to the needs of their own congregation but ultra interested in what people in other continents were suffering.

Unity come from Heaven only, a Believer turns to Lord Jesus and let him be the believers Judge,...... Lord Jesus is the Judge and Authority of Heaven and the earth, ...When believers lets Lord Jesus be the Judge they come under the authority of Lord Jesus Christ....... The believer must obey the commandment of Lord Jesus and love all people and all groups and all enemies of the Lord and believers and must love the Lord God with all their heart.....Lord Jesus holds that believer up is Heaven and the authority and power over the Heaven and the earth will come to those believers who are obedient to unity, as the result will be lead as earth shakers to the purpose and the will of Lord Jesus Christ......

Define outside the box. If you believe that Christianity in NO WAY corners the market on God then your Christianity is defined by the world and not by scripture. Weither you have or never did is irrelevant, that you state this affirms its truth.

If you know the Bible then you know that Christ corners the path to God.

Unity does not differ from Universalism and has a strong presence in your neck of the woods. You have hit the nail on the head in its focus. Ultimately like all systems of the world it is focused on some degree of spirituality other than others. I once attended Unity by my mothers insistance as a child and thank the Lord I was called out of it. Christianity is defined by Christ and only in Christ is the one way to God. Any other system regardless of what it calls itself is of the world and as such may be spiritual, but in the end as fruitless as anything else.

This perhaps is not the answer you wanted, but I must profess that while you may state you know the Bible, your opening statement shows you do not understand it.

May the Lord God Jesus Christ find you in Truth!
