George Fox and the Apostle Paul

In a discussion on Bill Carsley's last post, two people have raised questions about how to reconcile George Fox and the apostle Paul concerning the issue of partaking of the bread and wine, which most of Christendom has practiced while Fox and the early Quakers did not. Would it not open an avenue for the rest of Christendom to receive what Fox and the early Quakers had to say if these two positions could be reconciled? The following words have risen in my heart in response.

Who's Standing In the Gap?

Ellis has made a comment on my latest post, posing three important questions. He has given me permission to include the full text of his comment here. In this post, I’ll attempt to address those questions. Hopefully this will be helpful to other readers as well.   Here is his comment:

Bill,

You stated: "Preterism gives powerful biblical support to some of Fox’s most controversial ideas." I am coming from a background where, upon reading Fox,…

A Good Question

In response to my last post, a very good question was raised which I'll attempt to answer here. In doing so, my hope is that I can tie up some of the loose ends that are still out there, and that the overall intention of this series will begin to become clearer for everyone. The gist of the question is this:

“We know that George Fox’s central focus on Christ’s coming was its awesome spiritual power for our present experience.  He emphasized Christ’s office as Prophet (the one like…

George Fox's Preterism

In my first three posts I outlined a proposal which seeks to understand George Fox’s view of the “Second Coming” (parousia) of Christ, particularly as he saw it being realized in the Quaker movement of his own time. I pointed to the fact that Fox believed that Christ’s coming (at least in some sense) had already happened, and was an ongoing reality, and that this was one of the arguments he used to make his case against celebrating Eucharistic rituals or sacraments. I pointed out that later…

Welcome to the New Foundation Web Site

When George Fox spoke of passing through the two-edged flaming sword upon entering the paradise of God, he drew from biblical imagery, which distinguished one way of being from another. Earthly wisdom and the transgressing life could not enter but was cut down and burnt up by that figurative sword.

When the testimony is made, it is the same in every age: Women and men come into a new way of being, renewed up into the Image of God in righteousness, holiness and freedom. Established on our Foundation, Christ Jesus, we know the steadfast state of Grace and Truth. As did those who came before and knew by experience, let us go out to declare the Truth for the love of it.

New Foundation Discussion Forum

We are hoping to establish more opportunity to get people who are relatively new to the New Foundation Fellowship more involved with us. To this end we are trialing a Facebook Page that gives us forum-based facility. We would like to give people who are unfamiliar with the faith of Early Friends an opportunity to ask questions in open and friendly environment.

 

You can jump straight in by going to Newcomer's discussion board. Hope to see you there!

"It would be helpful to place the 11:23-27 passage in 1 Corinthians within the context of the preceding chapters of the epistle. There one can read of Paul's perspective, role, tactics, and aim, all of which figure into the passage in question.…"
