Q&A | Felix Trembled

The Advocate committee prepared answers to questions submitted by an Amended Brother for the purpose of determining the extent of differences in understanding between the two communities on specific verses. These verses had been approached by each community from its respective model of understanding. Though we believe it is unwise to strive over such questions, at the same time we believe it is important to seek out understanding which is reasonable as well as consistent with scriptural foundation principles. Our answers reflected the understanding of the Bible that has been expounded in The Advocate since its beginning in 1865, offered here for reader information and review. For the most part, the questions submitted do not address basic beliefs, but rather application of those beliefs. This response is presented in the spirit of being ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear.
