Holly Spring Friends Meeting Teaches Book That Claims Infants Are "in essence, evil"!

Now, this morning, Quakers have descended to the lowest hell!

I've been following the disagreement between Holly Spring Friends Meeting and others within North Carolina Yearly Meeting. It's tragic, but it seemed to be about how to approach the issue of same sexual marriage, not about that God foreordained most humans to eternal damnation and creates every infant in the womb "in essence, evil." (p.64, 84, 107, etc.The Explicit Gospel)

Yet according to Holly Spring Friends Meeting's site, they are teaching The Explicit Gospel by Matt Chandler. Not only does Matt Chandler claim that all infants are "in essence, evil,"
he also claims that
God has two contrary wills, and that in God's hidden will, he doesn't want most humans to be rescued.

Yes, hard to believe, but this Friends Meeting is teaching a core hard Calvinist theological book filled with TULIP.

Nothing could get much worse than this...

How tragic, how despairing...

Hello, Daniel,
It seems this group looks at God as if he was a rich relative with the secret "Will", according to which some select family members will be rewarded, others will be cast out. Kind of funny and comical, actually.
As for "all babies in essence being evil" - hmmm... I just want to say, "Bullshit, bullshit, bullshit!" The religious group teaching bullshit does not make it any more true. So - not tragic or despairing, in my opinion, just utter nonsense.
Thank you,

Hi Katya,

Thanks for sharing your perspective.

What baffles/confuses/depresses/woes me down is how so many humans--now and in the past--even Quakers,
believe this horror.:-(
