PIONEER CHRISTADELPHIAN Home Page-Index
This site is sponsored by brethren and sisters who are in fellowship with Pioneer Christadelphians worldwide
It has been created for the promotion of 2 objectives - SOUND DOCTRINE AND SOUND FELLOWSHIP
THE PIONEER CHRISTADELPHIAN FELLOWSHIP
We are Christadelphians
Upholding the Truth as revealed in God's inspired word
-and proclaimed by John Thomas and Robert Roberts-
whose writings are largely ignored today by the majority:
We invite the support of others who also love the Truth.
11 November 2020 - Pioneer & Maranatha Christadelphians are now united together in fellowship.
We extend fellowship to each other while retaining our own names & identities. If there are any
others who share our beliefs & are interested in such an arrangement, please contact us (below).
By the grace of God, we hope to continue our endeavours to unite brothers & sisters who share
a belief in the One Faith "which was once for all delivered unto the saints" - Jude 3 RV.
The greatest sin of these last days is the almost universal acceptance of evil, coupled with the inability
to recognize what evil really is. It is only the word of God which is able to dispel this gross darkness.
"For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people" - Isaiah 60v2.
"The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple" - Psalm 119v130.
Read how & why the Truth has almost disappeared from the face of the earth - 'Departure' - p.1 & 2.
Whether among the "churches" or the majority in "Christadelphia", the reason is always the same -
Who were "the angels that sinned"? We expose current foolish ideas & set out the scriptural facts.
The recent solar eclipse has created a lot of interest. Read the scriptural reason for this phenomenon.
DNA has identified the descendants of the Canaanites and endorsed the Biblical record - 'Bible' - p.3.
John Thomas wrote in 1865 concerning 'Neutrals and Enemies'. And his words still ring true today.
Those desiring to maintain the Truth in its purity will enjoy reading 'Fellowship & the Seven Ecclesias'.
And if it was "a time to be honest" in 1984, what is it now, decades later? - 'An Unheeded Complaint'.
Why is it that "open" and "shut" doors feature so prominently in the Bible? The answer is here.
There are important implications for personal and communal responsibility in 'The Leprous House'.
The devastation caused globally by coronavirus demonstrates that eradication is the only safe course.
Also consider the prophetical dimensions of this vital subject, which bear directly upon heresy today.
Those who suffer today because of apostacy will appreciate the warnings of 'Proverbs' - p. 2 and 3.
The false claims of Rome to Divine authority & infallibility are demolished in 'Foundation' - p.1 and 2.
We have commenced the glorious 8th "sign" of the Gospel of John - for the introduction link here.
"Evolutionists" now label the 'evolutionary tree' as "a figment of our imagination" see 'Bible' - p.3.
What was the "burden" placed upon the faithful in Thyatira by Christ? The full details are here.
Who was 'Lucifer' in Isaiah 14v12? Forget the myths you have heard and read the answer here.
It was once popular for "evolutionists" to speak of "vestigial organs" - they have been proved wrong.
We are not commanded to keep a 7th day sabbath today. However an 8th day sabbath will soon be
observed throughout the earth in the Kingdom of God. Read a complete scriptural analysis here.
If "Jehovah's Witnesses" are at your door, do you know their errors and the scriptural proofs?
We have begun a series of studies exposing the errors of Mormonism titled 'Morminism Examined'.
-pages 1 & 2 - we have rebutted the "gold plates", "Reformed Egyptian" & the 'First Vision'.
-page 3 - we have shown conclusively that Mormon claims to two priesthoods are both false.
-page 4 - we have refuted "the trinity" as taught in the Book of Mormon, and also the doctrine of a
plurality of gods as taught by Joseph Smith. Ask your LDS visitor - "why do they disagree"?
-page 5 - read the documented chain of events which resulted in the man-made Book of Mormon.
The vital Biblical importance of numbers is explained in 'The Structure of the Bible'.
Did you know that our Creator has indicated which plants treat specific complaints? A list is here.
Correct translation and context are essential for our understanding - an example is Matthew 18v1-22.
Why is it so necessary to uphold the Pioneer time-line of the Apocalypse? For the answers link here.
What is meant in John 14v2 - "In my Father's house are many mansions"? The explanation is here.
In one sense "the devil" has been destroyed. However "the devil" is still active today.Read more here.
Have you ever wondered about the difference between the Jewish feast of 'Hanukkah' & the popular
pagan sun-god festival observed on 25 December known as "Christ-Mass"? Read the shocking truth.
What does Peter mean by "new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness"?
The notoriously unreliable & biased method of "carbon dating" has taken another hit - read of it here.
UPDATE:we have created two pages that are expanded and concise summaries of the Basic Doctrines.
They may be accessed & downloaded via the link above. They may also be printed as one double-sided
A4page, which can be a valuable low-cost means of presenting the essential teachings of the Scriptures.
We suggest that in your browser page setup you un-tick 'shrink to fit page width' or equivalent, & also
set the scale to 86%. To eliminate unnecessary page and date details, set 'headers & footers' to 'blank'.
And there is a normal web-page with all of these 12 Basic Doctrines which are essential for salvation.
A Word file is also available which is especially useful for those needing larger type..contact us (below).
MARRIAGE & DIVORCE: those who have adopted the Catholic dogma of no divorce should examine
the scriptural facts as opposed to the many current theories. A careful reading of the Gospel records
will reveal the teaching of Christ on this subject. Our map illustrates the setting of His words, & also
misled by false interpretations of the 1898 Melbourne divorce case.We set out the truth based upon the
actual court records and the real facts, with reference to Robert Roberts' comments & the Scriptures.
We also set out very clearly the beliefs of John Thomas & Robert Roberts on divorce & re-marriage.
And just recently, some old discredited "translations" of Matthew 5v32 & 19v9 have re-surfaced.
To see our reply, originally issued in 1973, link to 'The 'Exceptive Clause' - the real facts'.
THE TWO GREAT 'SIGNS' OF THESE LAST DAYS - Proverbs 27v18 cp Matthew 24v29 to 25v46
1 THE POLITICAL 'SIGN' OF ISRAEL - "Whoso keepeth the fig tree shall eat the fruit thereof"
It appears, from calculations elsewhere on this site, that we may have entered a final count-down
period, leading to "Armageddon" in AD2027...link here to 'The Time of the End' for more details.
THIS DATE IS A SUGGESTION ONLY
"Armageddon" & the Temple Inauguration may both be in jubilee years - link to 'Jewish Jubilee'.
Because the Lord must return prior to "Armageddon", we have little time to ensure our position
before God. Let us therefore use this brief time wisely, not knowing if death may shorten our few
days of opportunity even more.
2 THE ECCLESIAL 'SIGN' OF APOSTACY - "so he that waiteth on his master shall be honoured"
Recent tragic events demonstrate the urgent need for plain speaking, and for those caught up in
current apostacy to remove themselves from positions of complicity with evil - link to
In particular the inroad of "clean flesh" substitutionary teaching within 'CentralChristadelphians'*
has accelerated.Read again such Pioneer works as 'Elpis Israel' and re-consider the "two principal
acceptations" of "sin".Jesus Christ committed no sin,but because He was born of "sinful flesh",He
needed salvation through sacrifice and resurrection in common with those whom He came to save.
Any teaching which denies this clear scriptural doctrine is apostate and cannot save anyone. In fact
anyone immersed by CentralChristadelphians* should urgently check what they have been taught
concerning this and other basic doctrines. If error has been adopted, it is urgent that true Biblical
doctrine is now believed. Re-immersion (i.e. scriptural baptism into Jesus Christ) will be necessary
while there is still the opportunity, and false teachings must not henceforth be fellowshipped.
(* including Christadelphian Bible Mission - CBM and associated organizations - & Carelinks...
it is a sad fact that literature emanating from within Central is very likely to contain error)
Do not be deterred from your investigations by false assertions and personal attacks. A deadly &
fatal inertia has taken hold, and those whom the system serves are using all the self-preservation
mechanisms at their disposal, to prevent any dissent and consequent threat to their power.
"Let them alone : they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall
into the ditch" - Matt. 15v14. "To the law and to the testimony : if they speak not according to this
word, it is because there is no light in them"-Isaiah 8v20.."the word that I have spoken, the same
shall judge him in the last day" - John 12v48.."So then every one of us shall give account of
himself to God" - Romans 14v12.."And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many (lit. "the
majority") shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved" - Matt.
24v12,13.."What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?"
- Romans 8v31.."If we suffer, we shall also reign with him : if we deny him, he also will deny us" -
2nd Timothy 2v12.."Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you : not as the world giveth,
give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid" - John 14v27.
(to fully understand this application, examine the two applications suggested by John Thomas
and before you reject it, consider Proverbs 18v13 & Amos 3v7 - also the two 'signs' above)
Extracts from page 3 - In "the last days" of Israel’s existence prior to AD70, the Apostle John
fought against heresy ("deceivers..who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh") and
the toleration of heresy ("he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds")-2nd John.
Is it any wonder then, that we must also combat these same two disasters in "the last days" of
Gentile times just prior to the return of Christ?....."And this is the condemnation, that light is
come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil".
It is time for the light of truth to dispel the darkness which has descended upon the Household
of Faith in these terrible last days of Gentile times. "But he that doeth truth cometh to the light,
that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God" - John 3v19,21.
"The characteristic of a true Christadelphian is "the obedience of faith" and a "walk worthy of
God"; in other words, he first understands the things of the Kingdom of God,and Name of Jesus
Christ; secondly, he believes what he understands, and loves what he believes above every other
thing; thirdly, his "faith working by love" causes him to be immersed into the Divine Name;
fourthly, he walks in the truth, and is careful to do nothing to its injury: and fifthly, he will not
fellowship those who do not so believe and do. There are very few in whom "the word of Christ
dwells richly in all wisdom" and in whom this word rules so as to induce them "to deny them-
selves of all ungodliness and worldly lusts, and to live soberly and righteously and godly in the
present world."Do what is right, be valiant for the truth, teach it without compromise, and all
the lovers of the truth will approve you: for all others, you need not care a rush." John Thomas.
"The children of light have nothing to do with the reservations of darkness. Far better accept the
company of a few on a sound foundation of truth and peace than preserve a numerous fellowship
in which the leaven of corruption is at work." "The friends of God are few and feeble in our day
and generation. We must not be discouraged at this. In the purpose of God, His children will yet
be a multitude that no man can number." "The truth cannot be frustrated in its appointed miss-
ion in our age any more than in any other age. If those to whom it comes prove undiscerning of
their privilege, or loose-handed in their stewardship, the opportunity will pass on to others, as
we are taught by the parables and by all God's dealings on earth.It has always come in a humble
and kindly agency, but it is none the less a thing of inexorable demands at the bottom.Gentle and
enticing at the beginning, it will end with bitter mockery if it is trifled with. God is love, but our
God is a consuming fire, and it is a fearful thing to fall into His hands." "You did quite right to
stand out against ambiguous sentiments on this question. He that bids a denier of the truth "God
speed" by receiving him in approving co-operation is "partaker of his evil deeds." This is John's
doctrine (2 Jno. 10-11), and John's doctrine is Christ's, and Christ's is God's (Luke x. 16 ; Jno.
xii. 49). It is very inconvenient for the present world, but the law of God was never given as a
rule of convenience now.Its convenience and joy will be unutterable at the last." Robert Roberts.
