Is this the challenge that bro. Davis mentioned in one of his posts?

Quote:
1) A single quote from the pioneer writings which indicates the pioneer brethren advocated and practiced Fellowship unions of mortal ecclesias.


If so, has a Berean ever used the term "fellowship union of mortal ecclesias."  I don't recall the term.  If Bereans don't use the term, why would we defend the term?

Certainly we have defined our fellowship beliefs and practices, and we have shown in great detail, that our practice is identical to that of the pioneer brethren.

Let it be noted that 9 months after asking Bereans for a few simple proofs of their 50+ year claims regarding fellowship, no Berean has emailed me answers to my four questions. Those who look at the evidence linked to below will see why.



That the answers have not been emailed to bro SG, it does not follow that his questions have not been answered elsewhere, which, indeed, they have.

If you are going to ask someone to defend their position, does it not make sense to quote directly from them the things you want them to defend?  Bro. Genusa references something he calls a fellowship union of mortal ecclesias.  We know of no such term ever used among Bereans.  Why should we try to defend that which we have never affirmed?

What we have affirmed should be clear enough to him.  We walk with those who are walking in light.  We refuse to walk with those who are walking in error.  Bro. Genusa's association with Central, the errors which have been recently documented by Erik Moore (if they are still here, I haven't checked) places him in the latter group.  He prefers the company and associations of the errorist to those abiding in truth, on the plea of not offending the weak.  He has made his decision.  He criticises us for having no fellowship with him, or the errorists he supports.  Such criticism we have endured for longer than his nine months, with every intention of enduring for much longer, if the Lord remains away.

Excerpt from a letter of bro Genusa to me.
Anyone is free to respond.

I am interested to know if you are going to be answering these questions I've posed:
http://www.genusa.com/fellowship/QuestionTheBereans.html

Also, what is -your- assessment of The Biblical Doctrine of Fellowship?
http://www.genusa.com/Truth/The%20Biblical%20Doctrine%20of%20Fellowship.pdf

At one time you believed "the One Body" included brothers and sisters out of a number of Fellowships. Have you changed positions as your questions suggest?

Also, what are -your- thoughts on the alterations found in The [Berean] Doctrine of Fellowship? I've read Jim Phillips's excuses, but what is -your- position in light of your earlier comments about the unnoted alterations to books like Elpis Israel?
http://www.genusa.com/fellowship/BereanAlterations.html

Also, what are -your- thoughts on the materials included in The Christadelphian Doctrine of Fellowship but which were not included in The [Berean] Doctrine of Fellowship? Those materials are marked in the TOC of the book:

I started reading Bro Stephen Genusa's booklet last week on Fellowship.    He claims that Suffolk Street only became a recognised fellowship in 1917 - is he saying just in name or in practice too?   By this, is he denying that bro Roberts withdrew from that community in 1885, would not fellowship those who believed in Partial Inspiration, neither those who supported them?

I was astonished by the very foundation of the booklet!
