Adamic Condemnation and the Responsibility Question

The Subjects Scripturally Set Forth

and Reviewed in the Light of Christadelphian Writings

in a Lecture Delivered in Leeds, England, By

Thomas Williams

THE SUBJECTS SCRIPTURALLY CONSIDERED AND REVIEWED IN THE LIGHT OF HISTORY OF THE CHRISTADELPHIAN WRITINGS OF THE NINETEENTH AND TWENTIETH CENTURIES.

A LECTURE DELIVERED BY BRO. T. WILLIAMS, IN THE CHRISTADELPHIAN HALL, GREAT GEORGE ST., LEEDS, ENG. REPRODUCED FROM MEMORY.

In 1903 the editor of the Advocate delivered a lecture upon the same subject in the same hall, which was recently published in the Advocate. A local change having taken place since then, it was deemed advisable by the Yorkshire brethren to invite the members of the ecclesia's meeting on the "Amended" basis to come and hear an explanation of the causes of division, and the possible means of removing the causes. The following invitation was, therefore, issued:

Christadelphian Hall, 81 Great George St. Leeds, 26th Nov., 1907. Dear Bro. or Sister: Greetings in "the Truth."

There appears to be some misunderstanding by the Ecclesia's in England separated from us as regards the teaching of Bro. Thos. Williams, of Chicago, on the question of "Adamic Condemnation." We have, therefore, invited him to especially address members of the Yorkshire meetings in the above hall on Monday, Dec. 2nd, at 7:30 p.m., and we have the greatest pleasure in asking you to attend, so that you may hear and judge for yourself. Bro. Williams will reply to any question submitted in writing by any brother or sister at that meeting. The subject of his address will be: "Adamic Condemnation: Its Origin and Nature - Redemption Thereform, When and How?"

Trusting that we may have a goodly company of the believers, and that all may be benefited.

I am, for the above Ecclesia,

Yours faithfully in Christ,

G.B. Suggitt, Recorder

Bro. Overton, late of London, but now of Boston, Lincolnshire, kindly responded to the request to be chairman. There was a large assembly of brethren and sisters from surrounding ecclesia's, forty, we were informed, coming from the "other meeting" in Leeds. After a few appropriate remarks by the Chairman, Bro. Williams delivered his lecture as follows:
