Christadelphian's

Hi Ben,

>>Hi, I am a christadelphian I have grown up all my life in a Christadelphian family, I am not baptised or "born again" as you call it. I am only 18 I don't know a whole lot of passages and verses that I could argue you with. I found your site by accident, I think your site is challengingly rude. I think for a christian you don't act anything like what christ commanded we act like ie. Love your neighbour as yourself, do unto others as you would have them do unto you.<<

I'm not out to argue or be rude, but simply share God's Word. And I read Jesus spoke of a 'spiritual birth’. The biblical Greek reads ‘born from above'. Without this, one remains in sin and won't "see the Kingdom of God". John 3 has 6 clear commands to be born of the Spirit. A similar expression is used elsewhere (Jn 1:13, 1 Pet 1:23 1 Jn.2:29, 3:9, 4:7, 5:4, 5:18). So every true Christian has two birth-dates.

Christadelphian's as you know, are only "born after the flesh" and "Whosoever shall NOT receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall NOT enter therein" (Mk.18:17). So if you love your 'neighbour' why not warn them? They respond calling me, "apostate and heretical", "Judaizer", "self deluded", "blind", "without knowledge", "arrogant", "proud", "presumptuous" etc. Because any who differ with the teaching of Robert Roberts and John Thomas "will be rejected (by God) more decisively than even an unjustified sinner" (p.241 Christendom Astray). It's Christadelphians who have the bitter animosity toward Christians. Because those, "born after the flesh persecutes him that was born after the Spirit, so it is now" (Gal.4:29).


>>Neither you or anyone else in this world will ever fully interpret the Bible or ever have the full "Truth" I don't believe at this point in time any one is right, 100% right anyway.<<

But the issue is about whether one can be "100% right" with God, not about knowing everything perfectly. Can God forgive all sin (1 Jn. 1:7) then Salvation is "not of yourselves it is a gift of God, not of works" (Eph.2:8-9). Christadelphian's inwardly lack this gift and say one can't be sure until after death. Can you see how serious this mistake is?

>>All I know is there will be a judgement day and It may be soon and maybe I may just see you there. God has stated and proclaimed many things and some we can't understand or comprehend but I know he is merciful and he loves all those who he has created. We are all human, we all sin, therefore we must all die; but only by the Grace of God may we live for eternity.<<

Paul said "…behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation" (2 Cor. 6:2). God's new born children have assurance of salvation today, BEFORE " judgment day" (Jn. 3:15-16 5:24 Eph.2:5 1 Jn.5:13). The question I have for the Christadelphian, is do they trust Thomas and Robert's, or what Christ has done on the cross? There is a BIG difference. Ben you cannot let this matter rest. If they have the bible wrong they will put you wrong. And in the end, you stand in judgment having never been born into God's family.

>>Once again your site is indeed a interesting site and I'm sure you put a lot of work into it and good on you, honestly thumbs up. Sincerely Yours, Ben<<

Hopefully it gets people reading and studying the bible. "The Truth" is a Person (Jn.14:6). Once you have Jesus as your personal Saviour and received the Holy Spirit in the new birth, you have "the Truth" (Jn.1:17 4:24 14:17 Rom.8:16-17). One can make mistakes don't know everything, but they have the "Truth". False teachers reject this, because they want you to follow them.

Thanks for comments Ben, appreciated. Write any time.

Regards
Mark
