Mike, Your comment reminded me of the discussion we had on the last Fox Reading Conference call a couple of days ago. We are reading That Thy Candles May Always Be Burning and working our way through sermon #5 (I think that is correct). We were discussing Fox's admonition to keep your testimony against the ravenous ministry and ravenous maintenance. Someone asked how we keep that testimony today? Fox is quite clear that there is not A Program for keeping the testimony for... The procedure is to first have a testimony, first to see and experience Christ at work, to join in that work within and among us. We keep the testimony by not denying the working of Christ within and by being faithful to his direction. Thus we can also say, "What we have seen, what we have heard, and our hands have handled concerning the Word of life..." Thus our testimony becomes a living thing in every sense of the phrase; it is something we live, it is something that is alive. Ok, enough.
