Dear Mbalanga

I am only very happy to hear from you. I know you are African and would like the African improvement in economy and freedom. I am going well with all my family here in Baraka. May I know about the process of joining the Ex-Christadelphians?


CBM threatened to "close down" an ecclesia in Africa

Can you find the CBM Christadelphian
in this picture?
By John Bedson

"The next ecclesia had severe problems, theft of money, immoral behaviour, and a split amongst the brotherhood existed that led to shouting and recriminations between two groups. There had been threats of violence to brothers, and the number of members had dropped from 80 to 17 as members drifted away from the unhealthy situation. An ecclesial business meeting was held and a new Rec Bro chosen. A warning was given by CBM that unless a radical change of behaviour was seen during the next year then the ecclesia would be closed down..."

Christadelphian slavery supporter predicted that Christ would return in 1866

The founder of the Christadelphian
religion opposed the freeing of
black African slaves in the US
In Matthew 7:24 Christ exhorted his followers in a parable that described the wisdom of building a house on a foundation of rock and not on a foundation of sand.

The Christadelphian house is a religion constructed on the foundation of the teachings of Dr John Thomas; a medical doctor who lived in various parts of the United States prior to the American Civil War. These teachings were the result of a long period of sixteen years in which he evolved and changed his interpretation of the Bible until he arrived at an explanation that he thought was the truth.

There is no reliable way in which we can test much of the accuracy of Thomas's interpretation of Scripture. If he is wrong we will never know because we will stay in our graves until the end of the Universe and never be resurrected. If he is right we will be raised to the judgement seat of Christ and some will be rewarded, while Atheists like me will be given a hard time.

The "King of the South" to become "The King of the North"

The Christadelphian prophets have once again been wrong footed as modern day events turn out to be completely different to their predictions based on false Bible prophecy.

Dear Wilbur (An African Berean Christadelphian representative)

We have for long kept your Lumpenary ways and now I have eye openers. As such I am resigning from the Berean slavery and moving on to no need of you. I ask you to resign like me and be free of human rules.

Emma and John I am very poor. But I am tired of being fooled! We are in pockets, bags and files.

Better me die free!

Some questions from an African Christadelphian Recording Brother

By Balenga Ebengo
CBM Baraka-Centre ecclesia

DR Congo

Dear brothers,

My name is Balenga Ebengo, from the DR Congo. I am Christadelphian (CBM), chairman of one ecclesia here in Baraka, East of the DR Congo.

I am so surprised at your organisation. When you call yourselves Ex-Christadelphians, I do not see any importance for this change. In what do you believe? When I tried to visit your website, there are comments say you accept White, Black, Gay, Divorced, ... I think your faith becomes more and more dangerous because it is against the Bible basics. The Bible says, "you must reject men who have sex with men". I can call you to come once more in CBM.

This young lady needs our help and advice please


I’m not a Christadelphian nor have been raised to be one but on the other hand my boyfriend is. I’m concerned and very aware that my boyfriend parents do not believe I am the right person for him, I’m not entirely sure what he has been taught is right/wrong and the pressure that he may be facing with having a relationship with me, maybe you can share your own experience to make me more aware.

Video: Was the emergence of life inevitable? - Dr. Eric Smith

Dr. Smith shows that the emergence of life on Earth might have been the inevitable consequence of a cascade of non-equilibrium phase transitions that opened new channels for chemical energy flow on Earth. The talk starts at 3.40 secs.

Gog and The Merchants of Tarshish fight side by side in the Middle East!

By John Bedson

Russian, British and US forces are allies in Syria 
Christadelphians are confounded by recent developments in the Middle East. Three years ago they were saying that Damascus would be destroyed in fulfillment of Bible prophecy. That prediction has since been abandoned, along with thousands of other Christadelphian predictions over the past one hundred and seventy five years.

Earth's earliest life forms may have been discovered

Editor's note: This evidence is not conclusive, but it is very exciting. Our best theory for the origin of life is that life formed under the sea in hydrothermal vents. See here for more and Google search 'Origin of life hydrothermal vents.

The Earth formed approximately 4.6 billion years ago and if these fossils are verified they could represent one of the 'missing links' between inanimate matter and self replicating life.

Science has never before found anything like these fossils. This could be the final nail that science has to drive into the coffin of Theism. We already know that God did not create the diversity of living species as described in Genesis. Evolution did that. But if God can be proven to have not formed life, the 'God of the gaps' will lose his last remaining hidey hole and Christadelphians will have to reconcile themselves to living in a world without God and a Bible that mostly is only myth, legend and human superstition. 

Dear Ex-Christadelphians

Perhaps you would print on your site some of the other side of the stories you present so people can get full pictures?

To Rob Hyndman

You say that there is no underpinning evidence (of God).

Could you comment on the change of view of Antony Flew, former global spokesman for Atheism?  He  reversed this position when he considered the coming together of the first cell, the origination of all of earth’s life.  In consequence he authored the book in 2004 “There is a God”.

To answer him, Rob Hyndman, please comment on how all the inanimate non-living components of hydrogen, oxygen, calcium, carbon etc. came together to make the first functioning and self-propagating.  Flew thought there was no answer until his death in 2011.  Perhaps you see some other answers, or know of some that have come since?

I am looking forward to reading this thread and answers to it on your website.

Dozens drowned in Africa as CBM "Day of Prayer for Rain in Malawi" is a success!

By John Bedson

Be careful what you pray for
The British Christadelphian Bible Mission (CBM) website contains an article about the drought in Malawi, part of which reads as follows:

"CBM Council have designated Sunday 6 November 2016 as a Day of Prayer, asking, at the start of the growing season that the Lord God will send sufficient rain to provide the right growing conditions to give a really good harvest."
God's response to the Christadelphians' request was delayed for approximately three months while he arranged for a team of meteorologist angels to fly from Heaven to Africa, but the full force of the Christadelphian intercession can now be witnessed in a trail of death and destruction across Central and Southern Africa.

Cartoon: The "wisdom of the world"

Without a triple bypass you'll be dead within a week.
But as you are a Christadelphian, if you are going to
keep telling me that is "the wisdom of the world",
I recommend that you go home and pray for God
to unblock your coronary arteries.

The Christadelphians: "Bigoted, Racist, isolated sexual abusers..."

By Joseph Strong

".....With no care for anybody outside of their community...."

Did that get your attention?
