 Christianity - Free Encyclopedia of Thelema
Christianity is an Abrahamic religion based on the life and death by crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth as described in the New Testament.
Christianity originated in the First century A.D. According to Acts 11:19 and 11:26 in the Christian New Testament, Jesus' followers were first called Christians by non-Christians in the city of Antioch, where they had fled and settled after early persecutions in Judea.
Crucial beliefs in Christian teaching are Jesus' incarnation, atonement, crucifixion, and resurrection from the dead to redeem humankind from sin and death; and the belief that the New Testament is a part of the Bible.

 The Unitarian Controversy and Its Puritan Roots
This division-between those who believed that there were certain dramatic and specific and steps to love and faith in Christian life and those who awaited a slow and individualistic development of mature love and trust-would, more than a century later, be at the heart of the arguments in the Unitarian controversy.
Calvinist Congregationalists insisted that Christian fellowship must be limited to members in agreement concerning many areas of doctrine, including the nature of God, human nature, and the nature of salvation.
Ever since the controversy and still today, however, it is not unusual for ministers and lay members to switch about, from one of these associations to the other, and even back again.

 The Restorationist Controversy
Often, in theological disputes among close allies, the differences troubling the parties have to do with numerous related matters, though the issues are not all articulated in their more focused debates.
The Restorationist controversy also involved confused issues of authority and church governance in a rapidly growing movement whose organizational structures had often developed informally and without consistency, and hopes for future Universalist growth.
Thus the Restorationist controversy was at once a theological dispute, a cluster of wrenching adjustments in personal relationships, and an institutional crisis of the fledgling Universalist denomination.
