Dear Rev. Jamison,

Unity headquarters seems to be a publishing ministry and a school rather than the head of a church. Are Unity churches sort of an after thought?

Dear Rev. Jamison,

How can we prove that God exists? For that motter, how can we prove that even Jesus existed? It seems that there is more proof of Buddha's historic existence than of Jesus'

Dear Rev. Jamison,

You teach that Spirit is the power behind everything that exists in physicality. Evil is very evident on our planet. Does this mean that evil as well as good is of Spirit?

Dear Rev. Jamison,

I have been told that only the New Testament mentions Jesus. Are there other documentations of Jesus' existence?

Rev. Michael's Answer __________________________________________________________

Dear Rev. Jamison

You teach that there is no time in Spirit, that soul is a tendril of Spirit that animates our bodies, and that besides being soul and having a body, we also have an ego. Time seriously affects the body. Time has nothing to do with soul. What is ego's relationship with time?

Dear Rev. Jamison,

I know you research the sayings of Jesus to determine if he actually said them. I am wondering about this one: "If you are ashamed of me, I am ashamed of you before my Father." Did Jesus really say that?

Dear Rev. Jamison,

My newest grandnephew was baptized last Saturday into the Catholic Church. The priest quoted from Matthew 28:19-20. Did Jesus REALLY say that?

Dear Rev. Jamison,
How do I talk about sex, in a Unity way, to my teenager? I especially want to know how to reach a balancing of physical desire with responsibility. I'd like your take on this, if it is not too big of an issue to tackle.

Dear Rev. Jamison,
How come an interest in exploring the possibility of reincarnation was squashed by the traditional Christian church? I can see how Pope Leo the 10th found it more profitable for selling indulgences to believe in purgatory and hell instead of in reincarnation!

Dear Rev. Jamison,
How do you act "as if" without getting into trouble? If what you want is a million dollars and you act as if you already have it, how do you avoid bankruptcy?

Dear Rev. Jamison,
Jesus supposedly said he was here not to change the law but to fulfill it. What law was he referring to and how did he fulfill it?

Rev. Michaels's answer __________________________________________________________

Dear Rev. Jamison,
Are you familiar with the term "self-realization," and if so, could you explain what it means.?

Rev. Michael's answer __________________________________________________________

Dear Rev. Jamison,
I know the history of the Bible and do not trust any of it to be truth. I know Unity speaks of the metaphysical interpretation of the Bible. What is that?
