//we humans have distroyed the original religion of Christ.// EJK

Belief in Jesus the Christ is not a religion, and man has no such power to destroy the Body of Jesus Christ. They can only make facsimiles thereof.

E.g. be careful of those who only use the word Christ. they probably do not believe that Jesus is the Messiah.
---aka on 2/2/13


James L- I hope that you will find peace and be satisfied in a denomination that will suit your spiritual requirements. I don't like to point a finger at other churches as we humans have distroyed the original religion of Christ. We humans always have this view that we know more then the other person, most christians do get along except with religion like CD's. They have a very high belief that they alone hold the truth, so I do have some interactions with them, but it is a free world and I am not God to judge them. May the Lord be with you.
---EJK on 2/2/13


EJK,
it's not that I don't like those denominations, and it's not that I don't like the people in them. Many of those denominations would suit me just fine.

But there was a time when I was confronted with two paths - one that suited me and my self-righteous, religious desires, and another that set me free through the truth.

I didn't want to go down the path of truth. It made me uncomfortable to stare at my failings, and I was too proud to rely upon someone else to rescue me.

I was dragged by the Holy Spirit out of falsehood. Sort of kicking and screaming the whole way. I wanted to stay and supress the truth in unrighteousness
---James_L on 2/1/13


All those churches you have mentioned there was only one CD, which would not mix with any christians. JW and CD's do not believe in triune God, I also do not like the word "trinity" however I do believe God being one and acting in Christ and Holy Spirit. CD's say Jesus was on God's mind, I say God was manifest in the flesh as Christ. Just because you don't like those churches does that make them false. Humans make mistakes and interpret the Bible to suit their own beliefs.I was not happy with a denomination and moved on with another church,they are also not perfect but suits me.
---EJK on 2/1/13


EJK,
are you under the impression that I'm a Christadelphian?

I went back and read all your replies to me, and it seems that you think I am.

Now you've got me stupefied
---James_L on 1/31/13




But on their other points I am not sure since I have not studied them for a long time.
---Samuelbb7 on 1/31/13

aka 12/10/12
---aka on 2/1/13


James L- There is no perfect religion, religious people, theologians all understand and interpret the bible scripture differently, that makes them wrong if it is not the CD way I guess. A person must choose in which church and in what belief system they will stay. CD's cannot say that their view is absolutely correct because they "have worked it out"
---EJK on 1/31/13


While I have my disagreements with Church of Christ they solid on thier basic belief and should be considered Christians. Along with some other denominations mentioned.

But Chritadelphians are not because they deny the Trinity. But on their other points I am not sure since I have not studied them for a long time.
---Samuelbb7 on 1/31/13


EJK,
if an auto mechanic warned you of a dozen shops who used unqualified help, would you say that mechanic "must have" meant that he's the only one who knows how to fix a car?
---James_L on 1/31/13


James L....you must mean....\\
---EJK on 1/31/13

I think you would do well to simply read what I wrote instead of trying to read into it something that I "must" mean.

There's no need to try to read between the lines, I wrote what I meant. If you unerstand it to mean something other than the exact words I used, then you have failed in your understanding
---James_L on 1/31/13




James L-so since when God has appointed you to be the judge which church is right-all religions have failed to deliver the absolute TRUTH including CD's, so when you accuse all those churches as false you must mean that yr religion is perfect.
---EJK on 1/31/13


\\you failed to include your own as the true church ( or should I say ) "ecclesia"- the perfect religion\\---EJK on 1/29/13

I'm guessing you were referring to my post ??

If so, you've made an accurate observation. I've never hinted that I belong to the perfect denomination.

As a matter of fact, the congregation I attend is steeped in superstitious "sinner's prayers" and a very subjective Christianity.

One that fails in more than one point, teaching:

"relationship" with Christ rather than faith in Christ

"Changed life" rather than changed eternity

And other errors too.


But having errors, and being false teachers are not the same
---James_L on 1/31/13


They would not be fundamentalist christians. They do not teach the Trinity. They deny the diety of Christ. They do not teach the diety of Christ. They teach that Christ was a man. In their Creed, they state: "We believe that Jesus is a man, who was tried and tempted as we are, yet who resisted sin even till death. Three days later, the only true God, the Father raised him to eternal life, after which Christ ascended to his Father's side to await the appointed time of his return." They do not seem very trinitarian. I think they reduce Christ down to a perfect man.
---bike on 1/30/13


So after naming all those churches as false, you failed to include your own as the true church ( or should I say ) "ecclesia"- the perfect religion: Christadelphians,with many failed prophesies, but thats water under the bridge I suppose...So higher then thou...
---EJK on 1/29/13


compelling james...God's Witnesses
---aka on 12/12/12


The name says it all.

Virtually every church or denomination which uses God or Jesus or Christ in their name are false teachers. I don't know why, but that's just how it is.

Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints - false
Community of Christ - false
Christadelphians - false
Church of God in Christ - false
Assembly of God - false
Church of Christ - false
Christian Church - false
Church of God of Holiness - false
Church of God of Prophecy - false
Christian Science - false


should I go on?

The Christadelphian Church was begun by Dr. John Thomas in the mid 1800s. (seems a lot of "christian" groups sprang up then.

In regards to Jesus, christadelphians teach that....

Jesus had a sinful nature (The Christadelphians, What They Believe, by Harry Tennant, The Christadelphian, England, p. 74 - this is a Christadelphian book.)

Jesus needed salvation, (Christadelphian Answers, ed. by Frank G. Jannaway, The Herald Press, p. 25 - another Christadelphian book).

Jesus is not God in flesh (Answers, p. 22).

That Jesus' atonement was not substitutionary (Answers, p. 25, What They Believe, p. 71).

Baptism is necessary for salvation (What They Believe, p. 71,72, 207-210)
---aka on 12/10/12


Christadelphians are followers of Christ. They do believe the Nazarene Jeshua, better known as Jesus is the Messiah, who died for the sins of all people. Wrongly is indicated that they would think only they would be saved. We do believe that those who accept Jehovah God as the Only One God do have the opportunity to enter the Kingdom of God, which shall be in the first place for God Chosen People, the Jews, then for those who accept Jesus as the son of god being the Christ. It is wrong to tell people that we would say that only Christadelphians would be saved. It is up to the returning Messiah to decide who he shall allow to enter the Kingdom. It does not to men to decide that.
---Christadelphians on 12/10/12


Thank you willa5568 for your insight. About a cult we think it is a group where it is easy to get into and very difficult to get out and where a certain person or cult leader is followed, often there is also a connection with material belongings.
Our society or community is very open, even different ideas are allowed, and there is no human leader, and nobody is obliged to give anything except his respect and brotherly love. Our only leader is Christ Jesus, whose core teachings make out our rules to follow.
---Christadelphians on 12/10/12


CD's fall in to cult cathegory because they claim to have the truth. Attach wordly events to the bible and try to predict the future, failed:J.Thomas end of the world to be as we know 1868,R.Roberts 1910,CP.Wauhchope 1934,HP.Mansfield 1968 and Woodville ecclesia group in Australia in 1999. Group who tries to predict the future are false prophets,Christ said "I will come like a thief in the night"so we all know of his return but not the date or time, CD's will be taken to mt.Sinai to be judged and given the job to run goverment with Christ, on earth,if you believe in such speculations you belong to a cult.Who says you are a chosen,called bunch of people,only yourselves

Archbold_Muhle,

Gods blessings to you my brother! I agree with all you have said and am grateful God has given me knowledge of the things I desired to know. It is a joy to know a kindred mind is on this sight.
---willa5568 on 8/25/11


We cannot expect to understand the truth of the bible if we come to it loaded with our own preconceived views. One needs to read himself dry first and God will fill his cranium full, until then we will be involved in a lot of hair splitting that serves nothing but to fatten us for the day of slaughter... lets judge righteous judgement, its one thing to affirm something before man and another to affirm it before God, by our words we shall be judged... it may please us to throw mud and we may hit our target but in the end we have dirty hands. To the law and the testimony if any speak not according to this he has no light of dawn(Isa 8 vs 20).Proudly Christadelphian.Thanks to God on high!

Andrew,

forgiving sins-
But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins

you have given him(Jesus) authority over all flesh..that they know you(the Father) the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent> John 17:2

-"I and the Father are one"

I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I"

John 8:58 should read "I am he", the Messiah and savior promised

-"Let us"

Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?>Isaiah 6:8
who is the us?

I saw the LORD sitting on his throne, and all the host of heaven standing on his right hand and on his left.>2Chronicles 18:18,19
who is "he" speaking to?
---willa5568 on 7/16/11


Let's go back to the beginning....
Genisis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

The Triune God is explained in the first book of the Bible '...in our image, after our likeness...'

Jesus did claim to be God

John 10:30 'I and the Father are one.'

John 8:58 "Very truly I tell you, Jesus answered, before Abraham was born, I am!

Jesus forgave sins, which only God had the authority to do (Mk 2:5-11, Lk 5:20-24)

Jesus was fully man and fully God.

Peace

Andrew

Ignatius,

the word bible is in the scripture.The Greek ta biblia (lit. "little papyrus books")[9] was "an expression Hellenistic Jews used to describe their sacred books (the Septuagint). Christian use of the term can be traced to ca. AD 223.he English word bible is from the Latin biblia, traced from the same word through Medieval Latin and Late Latin and ultimately from Greek & #964, & #8048, & #946, & #953, & #946, & #955, & #943, & #945, ta biblia "the books" (singular & #946, & #953, & #946, & #955, & #943, & #959, & #957, biblion).

---willa5568 on 4/26/11


the Christadelphians are very biblical, though they do differ with others in some points. Why do some say they are a cult, and to run like their the plague. If that is so then we can call every Christian belief but ours a cult. Some believe in predestination, some don't. Some believe in the manifestation of holy spirit, other don't. Some believe Jesus is God, some don't. Some believe hell is a place where people burn forever, some say it is the grave. Some say you can't lose your salvation, some don't.
In all of these differences, the scripture is used to back it. Be careful what you say, and don't be so prideful to thank you can't be wrong!
---willa5568 on 4/25/11


I think they are on par with the Jehoval Witnesses. This is what I have heard...only. I have read their literature. Sounds fishy to me. Everything sounds good but it does not line up with the Word of God. I would avoid it like the plague.

Denying the deity of Christ?

Does scripture specifcally say such a thing, no. There are verses that plainly say God the Father is his God and Father.

Romans 15:6 "... the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ"

Galatians 1:1 "...but through Jesus Christ, and God the Father who raised him"

Jude 1:4 "...and denying the ONLY Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ.

1Timothy 2:5 "For there is one mediator between God and man, the MAN Christ Jesus"

1Peter 4:11 " that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ"

---willa5568 on 4/25/11


some replies on here call them a cult. The reasons are: they do not believe the trinity, do not believe Jesus is God, man does not have an immortal soul, heaven and hell, as taught by most Christian groups, is false and the holy spirit is not a person.
There are many biblical scholars who believe these very things. These idea's are Pagan, though most would argue against that. It is a shame that those who believe these things to be true would deny what is plainly written in scripture and accept, what you say those who do not accept them, a lie. I once believed the trinity was biblical, butI had questions that could not be answered.Through study and seeking God for answers, I found it was not biblical, but traditional.
---willa5568 on 4/25/11

I can state without doubt,it is not a cult,you are free to come and go when you please .

[5] They preach that heaven and hell are myths, [6] Satan is not a personal being, [7] man does not have an immortal soul, and [8] Holy Spirit is an impersonal force.

To me it is more then just being called a Christiadelphian, but belonging to what I think is part of Gods true family (for me).Also you can't believe everything printed about them as far as cult wise because they can be misinformed or judgemental because they might have had a falling out or disagreement.

It's important to first listen, then do your study. Like all, Christadelphians will be found in the wrong on some things and right on others. I've found that most of their views about fallen angels are much more accurate than traditional teachings. Doesn't make me wholesale accept or reject everything they believe.

Leah, I've not looked into Christodelphia but your comments only serve to protect what you believe. Talking of how comments on here disrespect your beliefs, but what about Christ? What is this 'word of life' that you speak of? You say you are different from Christians and you reject parts of the bible, so where are you going if there's no Heaven or Hell? It's been said before about those who follow humanly bespoke doctrines: what you choose to believe to be true has no bearing on what is the actual Truth. Your comments alone surmise some very strange goings-on in your church, and you ought to run from it. You allude to searching out Scripture presupposing diligence but you are following the very being whom you claim not to exist.

Hi all, I am a Christadelphian, I have been brought up as one, and find some comments on here highly disrespectful to what I believe. We are not a 'cult' we are a community who have gained an in-depth understanding of the word of life, through many years of searching and have come to find what we believe is the truth within scripture. We are very different to the majority of Christians as we dont believe in the trinity, heaven and hell or a personal devil, as this is not taught in scripture. We also believe that it is not just 'living a good life' that will get you into the book of life, as quite a few Christian denominations do, but believing the correct doctrine and searching out the truth for yourself is essential for salvation.
---Leah on 6/13/10


Some of this is ridiculous! Christadelphians always read the Bible and their conclusions are based on well-considered Biblical readings. That's why I can believe what they preach. They have a THOUROUGH understanding of the Bible and use it as their only source of knowledge. They are unlike any other religious group out there. Go to one of their ecclesias today if you don't believe me - find out DIRECTLY by YOURSELF! They have ecclesias (churches) worldwide.
---Travis on 4/9/09


From my understanding, they believe in God and await for the second coming of Jesus which his kingdom will fall into the heart of Jerusalem. They don't believe in the Trinity, not do they believe in hell. They don't vote, hold public office, or go out to war (battle). They don't believe the wicked will suffer in hell, that the dead will rise, there is no sin in the flesh, that it is not a sin for a believer to marry an unbeliever.

But there was no one quite like the Christadelphians. That's why I joined them as a permanent member.Its sad to see "Christians" slagging off other people who hold conviction in a faith. Remember my fellow bretheren, there are 500 different versions of "Christian" belief.

Of all the posts on this page, only two states facts. Those are the posts where beliefs have been copied from pages. Its not right to translate the meanings of faith without fully seeking it out. That is why our Lord tell us to "Seek the Truth". Christ doesn't want us ganging up on other churches. And he doesn't want us just listening to the words of a priest. He wants us to find out what we truly believe to be the truth.

And if you have a need to look at other "faiths", feel free. But don't assume to know and understand beliefs until you have truly looked into them.You will be surprised at what you find. Take it from me - i was a member of a number of churches all of which were accepted by "The World Council of Churches" (an institute set-up by men I must add) for 9 years. Why would I choose to change to a group of believers who are branded by the same - group of men - as a cult?

Christadelphians are just like any cult choosing what is "relevant" and disregarding bible facts that are not understood by them.

The Unamended believe that only the deceased who are "in Christ" will be raised from the dead and have eternal life;The Amended believe that all who are responsible will be raised from the dead at the time of the Final Judgment. The "responsible" are those exposed to the Gospel. The righteous among the responsible will be judged according to their works, rewarded appropriately, and live forever. The wicked will be annihilated*,ceasing to exist. *Covers most Christadelphians.

"It is a well known fact that cults such as the christadelphians are a breeding ground for paedophiles and rapists."
Really. I could say "it is a well-known fact that all Christian churches are actually brothels in disguise", but it wouldn't make anyone believe me. Think before you make such sweeping and incorrect generalisations next time.

I have heard lots of stories of elderly perverts using christadelphian churches as safe haven to molest and abuse children. It is a well known fact that cults such as the christadelphians are a breeding ground for paedophiles and rapists.

They don't sound like standard fundamentalist Christians to me, at all. I never heard of them until now but if these replys are true than it's a cult. It's another gospel that God does not recognize and yes, it could lead people to hell. The very thing that they seem not to believe in. Of course most of us don't believe in this cult. Thank God because His sheep hear His voice and no other. Right kids?

With regards to marriage, they believe that marriage of a believer to an unbeliever is not legal. It may not be Biblically the right thing to do, but it is legal if done according to the law of the land.

I went to their website and here are some initial observations I made.
1. They deny the deity of Christ and the Holy Spirit so they do not believe in the Trinity.
2. They downplay Christ's atonement for the sins of the world.
3. They believe in a salvation by works, denying God's grace in the process.
They appear to classically build complete doctrines out of a select few verses like most cults do. Christians do not believe they can be saved by works.

There are 36 doctrines that Christadelphians reject. Some of their beliefs: God is NOT 3 Persons; Son of God is NOT co-equal with the Father; Holy Spirit is NOT a Person distinct from the Father; man does Not have an immortal soul; the devil is a NOT supernatural being; the devil was NOT one of God's angels; baptism IS necessary to salvation; the dead do NOT rise in an immortal state...cont.

Alan, I used to have a neighbour who was a Christadelphian. She used to put their literature through my letter box periodically. All I can really remember is that they do not believe in a personal devil. I could never understand why because they say that they believe the bible and where is it that we read about the devil?
