Just interesting article I found on the net. As you know I do not believe Christ will one day re appear on a cloud. For me yesterday is history and tomorrow does not exist in the sense that I do not know if today is my last.

I also believe the bible is a spiritual guidline for my life today.

Anybody interested please read and respond
Christ IS come for me TODAY

"..central to Quaker thought, followers were urged to turn to the light of Christ within themselves: they were `spiritual millenarians'. They relegated the importance of the Scriptures in favour of the pre-eminence of this inner spirit, and so rejected the necessity for an educated clergy to lead and interpret.
What mattered was not so much biblical stories about Christ and the past, but one's own present. Heaven was within the believer. Nathaniel Smith turned to Quakerism for this very reason, that `the Kingdom of Heaven was in Man'."

The spirit of the Lord came nightly upon us to preach the Gospel, and our faith took hold of this promise. “I will build again the old waste places of Jerusalem, and restore the old paths and gather that which has been scattered.” (Nathan T. Frame)

ROBERT BARCLAY

(Lord's Supper and Christ's second coming is spiritual.)
"Thy Seventh reason is, ‘that it is the mind and will of God, that this ordinance should be continued in his church, until the second coming of Christ to judgment.’ By which second coming thou and you understand his outward coming; for which you have no ground to say, that he bid them observe it, till his outward coming so many hundred years after: for the Scripture speaks nothing so, but thus; ‘ye show forth my death till I come.’ Now we say, he did come according to his promise, in a spiritual and inward way of appearance in their hearts, feeding them with the heavenly food and refreshment of his own life and Spirit, which is the substance. And concerning his coming he speaks unto them in many places, particularly John xiv. 18. ‘I will not leave you fatherless, I will come unto you. Yet a little while, and the world seeth me not; but ye shall see me.’ And verse 23. ‘If any man love me he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him:’ which coming was inward, according to verse 20, ‘you in me, and I in you.’ And those that witnessed him thus come, needed not outward bread and wine to remember them of him; for his own Spirit would bring all things to their remembrance: they need not look upon the figure and shadow, who have the substance. Paul said, ‘we look not upon things which are visible;’" neither will God's condescendence to their weakness, who were but newly redeemed from out of a mass of heathenish superstitions, prove a command or a rule to the whole church, or a warrant for any now to be found in the administration thereof; and to hold up the outward figure, do cloak themselves, by shutting out and denying the spiritual appearance of Christ, as he doth immediately reveal himself in his children, in whom he has made manifest the substance, which ends the shadow. "

Accident or not, I think I needed to read this thread, just at this time. Call it a 'coincidence'.
