The Christian Quaker by: William Rogers - Complete web and pdf versions.

In the year 1680, William Rogers published “The Christian Quaker Distinguished from the Apostate & Innovator, in Five Parts” as a response to what many Quakers at the time understood to be an introduction of a peremptory spirit into the gathering led by George Fox. This categorical process was manifested by George Fox’s establishment of outward institutional forms and prescriptions, the adherence to which, was enforced through ridicule and demonization and other activities over against…

Hear Ye Him: Some observations on Matthew 17

And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute? He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? Of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? Of their own children, or of strangers? Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free. Notwithstanding, lest we should offend them, go thou to the sea, and cast…

Regarding the Gospel of Judas (a film documentary)

In case you don't have time to watch the movie, or can't get your hands on a copy, the National Geographic documentary about the Gospel of Judas is pretty interesting.



Yes, National Geographic was a sponsor of the project, as if it turned out this was an authentic document, then kudos would accrue to the documentary makers.  For sure this whole operation would need to be memorialized using state of the art film techniques.  One doesn't mess…

The "Presence" of God

Our experience of the presence of God is our entire experience, including all internal and external senses and our awareness of experiencing.

We can't say that some subset of our experience is the presence of God.

Some aspect of our experience may come to symbolize or represent or indicate the presence of God to a person, but that's an agreed 'codeword' between God and that person: "When I feel ___ then I know You are here & open for business." God is always here and open…

T. Edmund Harvey

I am working with Ben Pink Dandelion doing a PhD on  the English Quaker politician of the first half of the twentieth century, T. Edmund Harvey (1875-1955)

By the Blood

Thankyou Father that we can come into your holy presence with boldness by the blood of the Lamb (Jesus) who sets us at liberty.

You, Lord have torn the veil of the temple from top to bottom so we may come to such a holy God as thee.

We rejoice that if we draw near to you, you will draw near to us and if we resist the devil, he will flee from us. So Lord give us strength, your strength. For yours alone will be enough.

Thankyou for full assurance of faith and that though our sin be… Continue

The Similarities of Radical Groups

Scam on Quakerquaker

  Dear Friends

I was contacted recently on Quakerquaker by someone calling themselves 'Elizabeth Waves' who was due to receive an inheritance of £2 million and wanted me to act as 'trustee'. It is obviously a scam, but I felt it was worth mentioning as it seems they are able to contact individual members directly. I'm not sure who administers the site but could anyone reading this please ensure that he/she is made aware of this.

Many thanks

Derek…

Grace Alone - My Christian Testimony (updated version)

When I was young, my parents raised me in a Christian home. The influence of the gospel lay upon my life from a young age. I lived in the Mission House owned by the Free Church. My Dad worked as a local preacher and Mum was a caretaker of the Church building next door. The Minister a Rev Macleod and his wife were so kind to us and that has stayed with me over the years. I wanted to give my life to Jesus after hearing so many testimonies and seeing that older believers I met at…

Portland-Shiraz Sister Cities Project

The Unitarians are more at the forefront than Friends on this initiative, however we had a number of Quakers at the Iran Forum where this proposal was floated, receiving much interest and applause. I'll give a link in the comments to my journal entry on our meeting.  Portland is already sister cities with a lot of others, like Chicago is, including Sapporo (Japan) and Ashkelon (Israel).

Given my connections to higher education, I'm especially keen to share Silicon Forest curriculum…

Originally published on the Quaker Universalist Fellowship blog (6/30/18)

Amid the wide global turmoil stirred by America’s current flexing of authoritarian nationalism, a deeper spiritual turmoil has been brought to light by the current administration’s use of the apostle Paul’s Letter to the Romans.

The second man is spiritually begotten by the Spirit of the immortal seed, is the express image of the Father; he knows the Father and is known of him, not by relation of the creature but by the in dwelling of God in him, and he in him, according to that measure of the light revealed in him.

The inshining presence of God and the birth of awareness and morality that is come out of outward political and religious conceptual and institutional forms and into immanent Presence itself in itself.

Geroge Fox and those early Quakers who denied “prescriptions without distinction.”

Research Notes: George Fox, Researchcode: geofoxjournalpt2pg3331709ed



In 1678 George Fox was moved to write a paper against those Quakers who opposed the Godily established order and disciple in the Quaker gathering. Fox says these Quakers who opposed the divinely given order of the Quakers “deny Prescriptions without distinction.”



To deny Prescriptions without distinction is to not differentiate between those outward prescriptions that are divinely given and those…
