The Bible's Human Origins: Parts 1 - 7

By Steve Pryde

Christadelphians believe that the Bible is the inerrant word of God and free of errors or contradictions. But is this belief justified? If we look objectively at the Bible, does it hold up as a reliable source of information? Can it be trusted? In this outstanding series of articles Ex-Christadelphian Steve Pryde provides an overview of the entire Bible and highlights many serious objections to the Christadelphian position.

Evolution in decades

Crazy Old Ezekiel

By Joseph Strong

With the current situation in Syria causing excitement among many Christadelphians, it would be easy to slip into thinking that their crackpot ideas need to be taken seriously. As a child in the 1970's, I, like many other kids read Erich Von Daniken's "chariots of the gods", in which the author thought that chapter one of Ezekiel described an extra-terrestrial visitation. Josef.
