The Lamb's War and Quaker Worship (Part 2)

In the desert liturgy of obedience to the Lamb, wrought in the wilderness of the Spirit, the engrafted Word and immortal Seed grow, waging the Lamb’s War, there where neither smell nor scent of time, flesh, or reasonings remain; and here all things are made new and one drinks freely from the well of the water of life. This experience of an invasive, desolating, purging Light is signified by the repeated phrasing, ‘And he carryed me awaye into the wilderness in the sprete’ (p541). Untouched by…See More

Patricia Dallmann commented on Blake Jerome Everitt's blog post The Lamb's War and Quaker Worship
"Point-by-point you've nailed it, Blake. Quaker faith, worship, and practice are the exact expression of John's prophecy in Revelation, and this was realized by Fox. That the book was open to him is clear confirmation of the confluence of…"

The Lamb's War and Quaker Worship (Part 1)

The Lamb was the Light guiding early Quakers in worship, belief and practice. The contemplative collective state, like the War fought against self ends, carnal reasoning, and concupiscence (intellectual, social, political, linguistic, etc.), was part of what John Punshon called the offensive of the Lamb. This formed a unity of prayer and worship with its behaviour as people in but not of the world. The Book of Revelation provides a key to this experiential baptism in the Lamb’s blood. Quaker…See More

"'So, what happens when we move away from that original foundation for our testimony? We are left with a set of rules by which we try to live our lives. We have lost the virtue, the heart contains the occasion of war, and all our outward efforts…"

"I am often reminded of what Lewis Benson told me, namely that all the testimonies of the early Friends were testimonies to the power of Christ at work in and among them. I do not know of any branch of Quakerism that holds that view of the…"

Liberal Quakerism's Eroded Peace Testimony

It is by subjection to the Light that ‘the exacter and violent doer in them might be thrown out: and they that had been hypocrites, might come to bring forth first fruits of repentance, and their mountain of sin and earthliness might be laid low in them…’ (George Fox, Journal, p32). This is a timely reminder of the obligation, set out by early Friends, to wage the Lamb’s war of resistance against the forces of violence, militarism, and hypocrisy. Some Liberal Quakers deflower the peace…See More

"Patricia, the words and worldview of these worthy Friends is so luminous, and such an important defense against (British) Liberal Quaker revisionism. Thank you for the welcome!"

"Thank you, Blake, for this compendium of Quaker quotations. Many I am familiar with, but there are some I hadn't come across. It is a surprise and delight to find someone who has immersed himself in the writings of these worthy Friends! Welcome…"

Early Quaker Dualisms

Brutality of the world’s systematic or military-industrial scale concupiscence vs. Violence of the Lamb’s War The inward apocalypse of the Lamb’s War annihilated early Friends’ collusion with and submission to the outward violence of the World. As Lewis Benson writes, early Friends were “at war with society as it is organised apart from the wisdom and authority of God” (Catholic Quakerism p48). This meant that the early Quaker was a “man of war, and in Fox’s vision the people of God in the new…See More

"Blake, I am wondering if you have examples of the dualisms you are listing. I have taken the liberty of trying to put them in alphabetical order as follows. If that doesn't work, feel free to throw my ordering out. Thanks. Your list: brutality…"
