Doctor Thomas on Free Enquiry and Other Matters

The following article is from the “Fraternal Visitor”, a Christadelphian magazine that was written in November 1894.  The context was a division resulting from attempts to alter the main Christadelphian statement of faith that was in use at that time.  It reflected concerns that had simmered since other attempts to impose more creedal requirements into the movement and a sense that there was an authoritarianism of approach by a man who had become de facto leader of the organisation, Robert Roberts.  It quotes the founder of the movement, John Thomas and the ethos that had initially been promoted by the movement.  It should be noted that quotes by him later in life had moved away from some of this early emphasis, which was not embraced by all the people who joined early on.
