John McCandless Again: A Sidelight on His Relationship with Lewis Benson

John McCandless told me many years ago that a prominent Friend (whom he did not name) took him aside at the Haverford College Friends collection to offer words of admonition.  The Friend noted John's interest in the work of Lewis Benson, and urged John to stay away from Lewis and his ideas.  Fortunately for us, John did not follow the Friend's advice!

As I Have Loved You

Whither I go, ye cannot come; so now I say to you. A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another. Simon Peter said unto him, Lord, whither goest thou? Jesus answered him, Whither I go, thou canst not follow me now; but thou shalt follow me afterwards. Peter said unto him, Lord, why cannot I follow thee now? I will lay down my life for thy…

On Discernment

“God's guidance is sure and perfect, but our discernment can always fail.” This is often the argument put forward to counter claims that we can know and do the will of God in this life.



But if we focus on human weakness rather than on the power of God, we might not notice how God intervenes to correct us when we are going wrong and don't realize it.



Recently I experienced such an intervention. A minor episode in my work had been claiming part of my attention because it had…

Fox and Holy Spirit Christianity, Part 3 of 3

So, are we doing anything more than playing semantics? What difference of understanding is to be gained by looking at things from one point of view or the other? 



Consider Epistle XXXII in Vol. VII of the Works of Fox, "When your minds go forth from the pure spirit of God and are drawn out from it, there the image of God comes to be lost, in those whose mind goes out from the pure to lust after that which is in the fall, which may appear like truth in the notion..."

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.
