This is an article written by a member of the Restoration Movement that the founder of the Christadelphians, Dr John Thomas, initially joined. It is interesting because many of the reasons he raised are ones that are still raised today and it shows the contemporary basis of some objections. Also references some of his plagiarism.
Expensive but comprehensive resource for anyone wanting to research the Christadelphian movement using their own written documents.
The founder of the Christadelphians, John Thomas, initially joined a movement which started in America called today the Restoration Movement. It was non creedal and promoted unity on the basis of “scripture alone”. It has huge archives of material, some of which includes information about the disputes involving John Thomas and material he published prior to leaving them.
From the archives of the Restoration Movement John Thomas initially joined. Interesting to note some things such as the reference to his belief that “infants, idiots and heathen” not being saved which is found today in the Christadelphian Statement of Faith. Also his assertion that the “Spirit of God does not operate on any person apart from the word written”.
