Reproclaiming the Everlasting Gospel
Away with the body of death and purgatory! Away with them! Come to the apostles' religion, the true saints! For we are come again to the apostles' days and have that which they had and were in! So we have done with all that hath been set up since the apostles' days and [are come again] to a glorious church which Christ Jesus hath presented to God, that is without spot or wrinkle, or any such thing, but that it should be holy, and without blemish. (Eph. 5:27) This religion was practiced among them then. And so you that are to this come and have a desire and are convinced, come into the practice of this religion that is pure, now.
Perhaps this paragraph sums up all we dealt with on the Monday night Fox Reading Call. We spent some time discussing what Fox meant by the Prince of the Air when he says, "Be subject to him who is the Prince of Life, as you have been formerly to him who is the Prince of the Air, that is, of the airy mind." We dipped into one of Fox's epistles, #32, which we found to be quite rich. However, the above paragraph was a good place to stop until next month. It seemed to bring us home, so to speak.
