Re: The Open Brethren

Having spent my formative year's in the Taylor Exclusive Brethren during the tyrannical reign of J Taylor junior, I remember the people who left in 59/early 60's we're vilified the most, followed by the open brethren and then the rest of "Christendom". Regarding the Open Brethren, I'm reading a book...

Bible truth publishers

Just chanced upon Bible Truth Publishers website and wondered which branch of Brethren they are linked to? I notice they are big on J N Darby.

Re: How do the Brethren use the Gospels?

Brother Rev, I'm intrigued by your expression "moved to Renton light". Is this a distinct group that is light on the rules? Or a tongue in cheek reference to light as opposed to dark? Going back to the subject of this thread, it seems to me that the E.B. use the gospels and other scripture out of co...

Re: WILL ANYONE EVER STAND UP TO TRUMP OR HALES?

Just a question for Ian, do you know which books of the Darby bible were translated after his death?

Re: In the Days of Rain. A daughter. A father. A cult.

Ian, in your post on Mon 19 June you hint at another publication which contains documented evidence. Can you reveal any details about this? Or have I misunderstood your post?

Re: Opening Pandora's Box. Corking the Un-Corkable!

Ian, I remember well, back in 1970 in a meeting as the "Aberdeen issue" was being discussed and the facts where presented very clearly - one man stood up and made the statement " I support Mr Jim Taylor 100%". He then walked out of the room, his family quickly following him. I was 15 at the time and...

Re: AUTHORITY

In my opinion, for what it's worth, is that there is only one ministry that can be said to be authoritative and that is the ministry of Christ Jesus.

Re: Making the world a better place

Just thinking Fishermen, about your aligning the Hales E.B. with the Pharisees. I understand the meaning of the word Pharisee is 'separate' or 'separated one's. So in their separatist ideology they are identifying themselves with them and not Jesus, making a nonsense of being just like any 'mainstre...

Re: Brethren mythology

The very notion of "recovering of lost truth under J.N.D." is one of the main myths of the E.B. this fable or delusion could be described better as a falsehood. Jesus warned his disciples about false teachers or apostles, "by their fruits shall you know them". What has been the fruit,or the product ...
