Want Some Answers ???
Hi Kevin, you write,
>>ah well. I guess I'm quite satisfied with the solidity of my faith<<
Well Kevin, it’s not my ‘solid’ or shaky faith that saves. Not ‘my faith’, but God’s grace. Salvation is by "grace through faith", not by 'faith through grace'. Salvation a divine work, is not a human procurement. What do you place your faith in? In Christadelphianism or God? Let me explain - Christ [who you, on your website describe as just a man] has 'the first place in all things' [Col.1:18]. The Bible describes Him thus –
"He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him. Christ existed before all things, and in him all things hold together. [Col.1:15-17]
Because Christ is God in the flesh [The Word became a human being Jn.1:14] I can say “God is my Saviour”. He who made “all things” is my Saviour and salvation. You are “satisfied with” a Christadelphian interpretation of Jesus and hope to find Salvation in that. Let me tell you, ‘you have no chance’.
The God of creation, salvation and revelation [Gen.1:1 Jn.1:1 Rev.1:1] should have first place in my salvation.
>>and I've actually personally read very few christadelphian writings<<
Yet your website is ‘the image’ of Christadelphianism. Both Roberts and Thomas would be proud of you. Or are you saying Christadelphian dogma [a radical departure from Christianity] is found abundantly in Christian writings? What I found on your website is far from the truth of Scripture. Or could it be, that I’ve read more Christadelphian writings, because I see their error clearer than you. You wrote,
>>I just use the Bible. Roberts and Thomas were a long time ago, and while they were the 'founding fathers' of the christadelphian movement as it now exists, most of us get where we are through our study...<<
Satan just used Scripture too, when tempting Christ to sin. But even so, I can also say, “I just use the Bible” yet didn't grow up Christadelphian. Kevin you can prove anything just using the Bible. Many will never enter the kingdom yet claimed to 'just use the Bible'.
Admit it or not, both Roberts and Thomas are a bad foundation. Nothing in their doctrine seriously differs from your website. What you need Kevin is to seek truth. And you won’t find that in ‘your studies’ with Christadelphians [I didn't].
Think about it.
