"Thanks for this personal account, Becky. In the distinction you make between the earlier and later practice of your faith, I see a similarity to Lewis Benson's differentiation between Adamic and Abrahamic religion:  Adamic being the…"

God Requires Total Obedience

The call to obey God is a call to action. It's not enough just to commit our lives to Jesus and decide to follow him. It's not enough to read the Bible, reserve a regular time for prayer, and have fellowship with other Christians. It's possible to do all these things and still not approach what God actually wants from us.How do I know this? Because of how God has dealt with me. In 1985, during a Quaker Meeting for Worship in the Name of Jesus—silent, waiting worship—I received a massive,…See More

"Becky, It seems to me that you could say a lot more about the internal process that lead you to be in an state that was willing to receive guidance, correction, or redirection."

"Thanks very much for this, Becky. It covers essential points of the inward struggle that results when we deal with those who in a worldly way reject guidance of their reason and/or conscience. The temptation to focus on their error and what we can…"

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 annoyed me—and because…See More

"Allan, I can do no better than to remind you of something you said awhile back on one of our Fox reading conference calls. At the time, I felt (and still feel) that you were absolutely right; you summed up the matter perfectly in a single…"

Rebecca Hein commented on Earlon William (Bill) Carsley's blog post Who's Standing In the Gap?
"Dear Bill,It seems to me pointless to debate when the “Second Coming” occurred. That issue is a sidetrack and a distraction from the most important reality we face: Christ is present and speaking to us now, and our job is to…"

Earlon William (Bill) Carsley commented on Rebecca Hein's blog post We Are Not Stuck in Sin for Term of Life
"I have seldom heard it put so simply and well, Rebecca.  It's very clear in scripture that each of us isl only accountable for the light we're given (but yes, we are accountable for it!).  Growing in grace and sanctification is a…"

God Speaks in Power

When we think of God's speaking to us, we often assume we will receive clear instructions, if not in words heard inwardly, then in a strong sense of what we should do. This certainly happens, yet there is another way God speaks to us and guides us: by power received according to the extent of our obedience.For example, years ago I was complaining to my husband that I couldn't control my bad moods. Thus, I lost patience and temper with our two young children and always felt guilty and ashamed…See More

His Sheep Know His Voice

"How do I know which voice to listen to?" is one of the most often-repeated questions when the Quaker practice of listening to Jesus Christ is discussed. "There are so many competing voices, both within and outside, that often it seems impossible to tell when God is speaking."Yet Lewis Benson has written of a voice that speaks to men and women with "absolute authority, in which they cannot disbelieve, and which evokes a response of humble unconditional obedience." [George Fox's Message is…See More

Patricia Dallmann commented on Rebecca Hein's blog post We Are Not Stuck in Sin for Term of Life
"I think this is a tender, to-the-point look at the dynamic by which God works in us for good, even to become perfect - renewed up into his image, and righteousness and holiness. If we prefer light to darkness, we ascend to the truth…"

We Are Not Stuck in Sin for Term of Life

Of all the Early Quaker tenets, the doctrine of moral perfection is perhaps the most misunderstood. When confronted with the idea that we can expect complete deliverance from sin in this life, we too often think, Oh no, God expects me never to make mistakes--how can I possibly achieve that? or Now He truly expects the impossible: how can I keep from losing my temper and screaming at my spouse and children in moments of extreme stress? or I can't stop coveting my neighbor's wife because she…See More

The Early Quakers Knew the Truth

The focus of the Early Friends was on listening to God. This is why they held silent meetings. They knew that human activity, such as a programmed worship service, was not likely to be in response to a direct leading, received within after much waiting and prayer.The power of those first Friends' meetings raised up ministers and evangelists who traveled all over England and beyond to preach the good news that "Christ has come to teach his people himself." When this is rightly understood, people…See More
