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.

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?
It's the conclusion of a report from the Christadelphian group "Lively Stones Collective".

Anti-CBM Rebellion in Africa and the Anti-ACBM Rebellion in Australia

African Christadelphians want change

CBM and ACBM violation of the principle of ecclesial autonomy in the ecclesias that they control appears to be widespread. In Australia some NSW ecclesias have ceased donating to the ACBM because of ACBM interference in the affairs of the Taipei Taiwan ecclesia when Lampstand Christadelphians Carl Parry and Roger Evans paid them a flying visit last year to advise the disfellowshipping of bro. Jonathan Burke. This has caused dissatisfaction in Australian Christadelphian circles amongst brethren and sisters who continue to fellowship and break bread with Jonathan despite his Lampstand magazine inspired disfellowshipping. The British Christadelphians seem to be of the same opinion - for the next three weeks Jonathan Burke will be breaking bread at the Watford ecclesia in the UK!

A big "thank you" to Logos Christadelphian Jim Cowie

Jim Cowie

Thanks Jim, for explaining the Logos Christadelphian thinking about coloured people in your talks and videos, especially one featured by Rugby ecclesia on YouTube. You have been a great help to us Ex-Christadelphians in our efforts to gain the confidence of African Christadelphian brethren and sisters who are understandably outraged at what some may consider to be Christadelphian racism in your talks.

More advice needed on plural marriages in Africa please


By John Bedson

A rec. bro. In Africa has asked for my advice and help dealing with plural marriage in his ecclesia. He specifically has asked for a list of ecclesias in the Developed World who would not disfellowship for a plural marriage.

Leaving my childhood religion

By (name withheld by editor)

I am a teenage "Christadelphian", at least to those around me. I have been struggling with faith ever since I was a child, and yet it is only recently that I have found the courage to try and break free from the constrictive hold of my childhood religion.

"....... and our third collection will be for the Bible Mission to pay private school
fees in Uganda to dissuade African Christadelphians from deconverting."

An urgent appeal for laptops, tablet computers and smart phones for Africa

By John Bedson

We urgently need old, working laptops, tablet computers and smart phones with WiFi to be sent to Africa to allow new African Ex-Christadelphians to communicate with each other and with us by email and to allow them to read the many different Ex-Christadelphian websites and discussion groups on the Internet. We will pay the airfreight if you have one to donate. Please email us: Ex-Christadelphians@Hotmail.com if you can help.

"This is my (gluten-free?) body"

By Joseph Strong

Never mind falling numbers, closing Ecclesias and being increasingly seen as out of touch cranks, as the letters page of this month's "Christadelphian" shows, there are far greater problems that need column inches:
