Reproclaiming the Everlasting Gospel
The Scriptures of Truth testify that those that live Godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. What do you think about this passage of Scripture?
I have been meditating on it and I believe it has to do with the false Christ of the world and the saturation of earthly culture which is very seductive to our eyes. The falsehood and the veneer of happiness is a persecutor in a way.
What are your thoughts? How do you maintain…Continue
In this second blog post I will begin to describe the scriptural passages that point to the prophesy of the Prophet-like-Moses, or “Prophet-like-unto-Moses” (to use George Fox’s phrase). I believe this has implications for our understanding of who Jesus is as the Messiah.
There are at least two explicit references to this expectation of a prophet like Moses in the New Testament, both in the book of Acts. They are recorded in two separate discourses, the first by Peter in chapter 3…Continue
The Lord is so gracious! By His Spirit He teaches us and leads us into the Way of Life. He deserves all our praise for the Love of the Word in coming to us and teaching us!
Last evening, after reading the Scriptures, I had a moment of silent worship waiting on the Lord. During this time I saw in my mind a donkey with a man on it, and then the image changed to a white horse with a warrior on it. I take it to be Christ. Christ came the first time…Continue
I am an ordained Primitive Baptist minister in North Carolina. I recently began to feel a longing and a desire for holiness and Godly living. In the course of my study of the Holy Scriptures I began to sense that the church I have served in, the church of the 21st century, was not the Church of the Lord Jesus. As I began to pray and study more and more, I began to see that one church is of the bondwoman and the other of the free.
This is my first attempt at an original blog post and it will probably show. Please bear with me as I find my way forward with both the topic and the technology.
Here are my short answers to the questions above:
I am new to this website but I am not new to the Society. My initial connection was through my Quaker mother, who introduced me to the Westbury, New York meeting, which (without my being aware of it at the time) made me a birthright Quaker.
This would have been in the 1950s, and my childlike perception of that meeting in Westbury was that things were good, very good, there. Likely that perception was accurate, that things actually were good there. The meeting was vital, supportive,…Continue
Due to the public nature of my outreach through QuakerJane.com, I sometimes have readers pose interesting questions. Recently a liberal Friend expressed concern about the wave of Conservatism that was overtaking the US, and she feared, the Religious Society of Friends. After some back and forth, we worked out three questions that spoke to some of her concerns, which I then answered. Even though this is in reference to the branch of Conservative Quakerism in the US rather than New Foundation…Continue
I work in a book and tea shop so I try to keep track of new books coming out. I see that Cambridge University Press is issuing two new books on George Fox; I believe they are scheduled for later this year, at least in the U.S. They are:
The Short Journals and Itinerary Journals of George Fox
Norman Penny, Editor
The Journal of George Fox: 2 Part Set (Revised Edition)

Yesterday (26-9-2010), at our Quarterly Gathering at Ely, we used a piece from George Fox as a way of sharing and nurturing our faith as Christian Friends.
This piece is a sermon preached by Fox to Ministering Friends at a very early Yearly Meeting held at…Continue
Here's a quote from Lewis that I like because it identifies the work of New Foundation Fellowship and calls us to the task:
I have only been able to think of the New Foundation Fellowship as a group of people banded together to help and strengthen one another in the work; and I have only been able to think of the work as proclaiming the everlasting gospel preached by the apostles and George Fox....The people who are traveling and speaking really need help. Team work is the…Continue
