We understand by it, that there is one being, one mind, one person, one intelligent agent, and one only, to whom underived and infinite perfection and dominion belong. Jesus was God's best child as he lived his life according entirely to God's will.

In the end religious authority lies not in a book, person, or institution, but in ourselves. We must inquire into their particular views of his purposes, of the principles of his administration, and of his disposition towards his creatures.

Early Deists would more readily accept Socinianism we see Jesus as human perhaps some Arminianism but Christian Unitarians go strongly for Arminius. The efforts of Clarke and Lindsey met with substantial criticism from the more conservative clergy and laity of the Church of England. It may be said, that, in regard to this subject, all Christians agree, that all ascribe to the Supreme Being infinite justice, goodness, and holiness.
