I am not talking about anything new or something I am promoting. I was talking about a church I went to back in the fifties and sixties. The building itself was sold and a new one build several miles away from the first one. I am not promoting the denomination because I believe my experience in that particular church was peculiar unto itself, where there was a lot of difference between one congregation and another, within this denomination. The Arian nature of the people's view about the trinity could vary in degrees from one individual church to another. So I can not tell someone, 'Go to the nearest church to you of this denomination and you will find something good' because there may not exist a single church today that would match the one I went to forty something years ago.
Thank you for the information you have given me, it at least gives me an idea one what I can filter out.
I used to consider the study of Arius as my life work but I realize that as much as I have studied it, I am only part way, that's why wars like what happened to destroy his teachings are so tragic and it was just the pride of one man (Athanasius) to have ultimate authority of doctrine, even if it meant killing everyone who could possibly understand it.
. . .I have a feeling, this is all going to take me quite some time. . .
