Primitive Christianity Revived, Again
I have recently begun to explore Quakerism. I attend a small liberal meeting in Indianapolis. I have been seeing a lot of the George Fox quote:
"But as I had forsaken the priests, so I left the separate preachers also, and those esteemed the most experienced people; for I saw there was none among them all that could speak to my condition. When all my hopes in them and in all men were gone, so that I had nothing outwardly to help me, nor could I tell what to do, then, oh, then, I heard a voice which said, "There is one, even Christ Jesus, that can speak to thy condition"; and when I heard it, my heart did leap for joy."
I am assuming that the voice Fox heard spoke in a language he could understand... perhaps the way many people spoke in mid 17th century England. I am very curious what the voice meant by the word even just before Christ Jesus.
