recently, due to an earlier post, I've been searching for evidence that the first edition of the Big Book said that your higher power had to be jesus (btw, I've still not found anything to that effect).
Needless to say, I've been stumbling onto all kinds of websites about AA and Christianity. Many, of course, saying that AA *IS* christian.
And no one can doubt that its seeds started there.
But you'd be surprised how many people out there are of the feeling that AA is inherently ANTI-CHRISTIAN
http://www.jesus-is-savior.com/False%20Religions/Other%20Pagan%20Mumbo-Jumbo/aa-big_book_vs_bible.htm

Of course, it seems that their core arguement is any program that acknowledges that anything might be true that isn't in the Bible must be the devils work.
So, even if you say your HP is Jesus, you are part of a program that says "Its ok to have a non-Jesus higher power" and therefor you are working a non-christian program.
