Christadelphian Bible Mission Racism

The CBM say that
blacks are cursed
by God to be servants
to the whites
By John Bedson

On the CBM Tanzania website there is an exposition of Genesis Chapter Nine in which they explain to black African candidates for baptism that according to the Bible they are the descendants of Canaan (a grandson of Noah) who was the son of Ham (a son of Noah) who fathered the evil Canaanites who were mostly slaughtered by Joshua when he ethnically cleansed the land of Canaan and established Hebrew rule in their place. 

I hate John Bedson

Emma Gubika
By Emmanuel Gubika

Dear Reuben, I am really concerned about what your future spiritual life is coming to. John and Mbalanga do not believe in God and Jesus. I believe in God. So I consider John and Mbalanga Fools whom I can't work with to spread stupidity of "there is no God." I know that you may be desperate for working with the whites but know for sure you crushed your faith in a fatal manner.

A warning to Christadelphians - Don't allow yourselves to be scammed by some corrupt African Christadelphians

Beware being scammed by some
African Christadelphians
By John Bedson

There is a scamming operation underway in which considerable sums of money are being fraudulently taken by African Christadelphians, not only from the CBM, but also from individual Christadelphians in the United Kingdom and the Developed World.

More questions from Africa and answers from the editor

By Reuben Kibet

We happy to welcome to small ecclesia in Gospel Good News. We waiting you, not Emmanuel of Uganda. So please come and give us the truth of believing in God. Read Exodus 20: 3-4, 34: 29 and 1John 4:1 - 4. I now like more about you because of what Emma said. If you do not believe in God, what do you believe? Do you believe the Bible?

Why the atonement makes no sense

Did God or man commit the first sin?
By Steve Pryde

As a Christadelphian, I had to endure countless long-winded sermons about The Atonement and why it was such a big deal. The Christadelphian view of atonement is somewhat unique, but it's not too far different from other Christian views on the subject (despite what Christadelphians will tell you). After all, they all get it from the same book.
But if you examine these concepts critically, several significant issues arise.

Visits to the Ex-Christadelphians in Kenya

By John Bedson

Ex-Christadelphians Dr. Francis Mbalanga (Zambia) and Emmanuel Gubika (Uganda) are planning separate visits to the Ex-Christadelphians ecclesia in Kericho Jemeflowers, Kenya, which is currently in isolation. They will offer support and discuss how we can flip more CBM Christadelphians in Kenya.

How Quantum Physics demonstrates that God committed the first sin

Adam and Eve emerging
from quantum fields
By John Bedson

Genesis Chapter Two claims that God formed man from the "dust" of the ground. I don't believe that to be true, but for the sake of my discourse, let us assume that it is true and that the Genesis narrative about Adam and Eve and the first sin is true.

An increasing number of African Christadelphian individuals and ecclesias are applying to join the "Ex-Christadlphians Fellowship" and to help us "spread the Gospel." - Clearly it is time to correct some misunderstandings!

Disgusting passages from the Bible

And Moses said to them, “Kill every
woman  who has known man intimately.
But all the girls who have not known
man intimately, spare for yourselves."
- Numbers 31: 15-18
By Steve Pryde

Did you ever come across verses in the Bible that really made you scratch your head and wonder what the heck the author was smoking? I thought it might be enlightening to post some verses that were allegedly inspired by the greatest mind in the universe (God).

Can you help the young man

Editor's Note: At the request of the author, this message has been edited to protect his identity from the Christadelphians.

By David Evans (Not his real name)

I really hope that you exceed the efforts of the Christadelphians and take the time to reply to this.

I have been a fan and regular at your website for nearly a year, and has been my go-to for questions that I have had. I am very proud that you saw through the lies of the cult, and began to think for yourselves. Nothing that the Christadelphians teach, and the way that they behave is correct. It is very encouraging that you do this work.

Greetings in the name of Jesus Christ our saviour. I was happy to come across you, hoping that we shall work together. I am Peter Makalai in Uganda in Africa.  Baptised with the Christadelphians for about 12 years, but at the moment I am out of fellowship. If I can join you and work together to spread the gospel I will be happy.

By Francis Mbalanga

I am publishing a new African Ex-Christadelphians booklet with Lambert Academic publishing in Germany. The booklet will be about Africans freeing themselves from the CBM and Christadelphians. Topics will be African CBM and Christadelphians freedom to deconvert to Ex- Christadelphians from the CBM mentality of forcing people to what they don't want to do and believe in doctrines and segregation.

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.

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.

White Christadelphian Racism - What do African Christadelphians make of this?

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

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

Haematite tubes from approximately four billion years old NSB hydrothermal vent deposits that represent the oldest microfossils and evidence for life on Earth yet discovered. Credit: Matthew Dodd


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.

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

African Christadelphians want change
(Photoshopped picture)
By John Bedson (Australia), Mayende Erisania (Uganda) and Mbalanga Francis (Zambia) 

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!

More advice needed on plural marriages in Africa please

Leaving my childhood religion

Current concerns of the Christadelphians (1)

"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:

Damascus NOT destroyed

Despite the Christadelphians telling us for the past five years that Isaiah 17 and Jeremiah 49 predicted the 'latter day' destruction of Damascus in our own times, nothing of the sort has happened and today The UN Security Council has unanimously endorsed a ceasefire currently in effect in Syria, as well as plans for peace talks to be held in the Kazakh capital next month. Damascus has NOT been destroyed! Why are we not surprised that the Christadelphians have continued their unbroken one hundred and seventy five years record of misapplying failed Bible prophecies to their own times.

'Gog' and Israel agree to extend military co-ordination

In yet another setback for the Christadelphians, Israel Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and 'Gog' President Vladimir Putin talked by phone Saturday night to discuss regional developments – especially in Syria after the ceasefire. PMO sources said they decided to continue the military coordination which had so far proved successful in averting misunderstandings. Putin conversed earlier with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani. They decided to continue cooperating closely in the effort to resolve the Syrian crisis. Click here for more.
