Religion, The Religious Society of Friends
The Quakers, or Friends, were formed in the mid-17th Century by an English shoemaker, George Fox (1624-1691). His core belief was that man did not need an intermediary to establish a relationship with God — no trained ministers, no formal church services. Fox believed instead that an “Inner Light” directed man toward divine truth. The Friends quickly became the most despised sect in England because the stands they took offended so many segments of society. Anglican authorities were affronted by the Quakers’ refusal to pay tithes or to attend services, and civil officials were disturbed by the Friends’ refusal to bear arms, participate in warfare, take oaths, or doff their hats before their betters. The Quakers pointedly used the words thee thy and thou when addressing people of all ranks — a highly insulting practice because those words were ordinarily used only when speaking to servants.

Religious Society of Friends
From Conservapedia
(Redirected from Quakers Jump to: navigation search The Religious Society of Friends, or Quakers, is a Protestant religious denomination founded in England by George Fox in the 1650s. They have always been a small, radical, Protestant denomination with enormous political and social influence far beyond their small numbers. The Society formed during the religious upheaval in 17th century England seeking the recovery of original Christianity. They earned the name "Quakers" for how members shook, or "quaked", reflecting their struggle against their inner motives "under the Light." Many migrated to America, especially to Philadelphia in the colony of Pennsylvania, which was owned by Quaker leader William Penn . Others went to New Jersey North Carolina and especially Rhode Island , where they controlled the colonial government for a while. Quakers were active leaders of many American reform movements past and present, especially abolition of slavery, Indians' rights, prohibition, women's rights, civil rights, prison reform, hospital reform, and world peace. Other famous Quakers include founder George Fox , feminist Lucretia Mott , and presidents Herbert Hoover and Richard Nixon

Those who opposed the awakening that Friends were bringing to the Church called them quakers in derision because when some of them spoke in a moving way they sometimes
The Friends Church was begun a little over three hundred years ago (1647 to be exact). George Fox, the founder, went to church with his devout Anglican parents until he was nineteen. Then he began to feel that there's got to be more to religion than this. George Fox spent the next four years trekking all over England going from church to church and preacher to priest looking for an answer to his questions. At that time the official church of the land, the Church of England, carried on its worship with elaborate ritual and ceremony in stately cathedrals. Another group, the Puritans, (so-called because they wanted to "purify" the Church of England) stressed the judgment and wrath of God. Neither of these alternatives satisfied many of the common people. They had been reading the newly published King James Bible and knew that vital religion was possible. Into this situation came young George Fox, a weaver's son, searching for inward peace and a group of people that consistently practiced the Christian faith. He knew the Scripture so well that a Dutch historian would later observe that if somehow all of the Bibles in the world came to be destroyed, it could have been reproduced from memory by George Fox. Anyway, George Fox kept on moving around the English countryside and one day the lights turned on for him (he said he heard a voice). He realized (or heard) this basic truth: "there is One, even Jesus Christ, who can speak to thy condition." Wow! There it was: the answer that satisfied him, the answer that finally got to the heart of things.

Quakers page: Founded officially in England in 1668 by George Fox (1624-1691), Quakerism has long been known for its progressive stance on many political issues, including abolitionism, women's rights, and pacificism, as well as its relative tolerance of homosexuality and gay and lesbian identity.

George Fox
Founder of Society of Friends The spiritual force which caused our ancestors to leave their homes in the British Isles and seek liberty in the wilderness, has been lost, and its importance to them and indirectly to us, has been forgotten. The contradictions and excesses and the then prevalent devotion to insincere forms and flattering manners affected the youth, George Fox, deeply. At the early age of 22, he found his answer, and his experience is described in his Journal, 1.8 as follows: "When all my hopes in them and in all men was gone, so that I had nothing outwardly to help me, nor could tell what to do, then, O then I heard a voice which said 'There is one, even Jesus Christ, that can speak to thy condition,' and when I heard it, my heart did leap for joy. . . . My desires after the Lord grew stronger, and zeal in the pure knowledge of God and of Christ alone without the help of any man, book, or writing. For though I had read the scriptures that spake of Christ and of God, yet I knew him not, but by revelation, as He who hath the key did open, and as the Father of Life drew me to His Son by His Spirit. And then the Lord did gently lead me along. . ." This experience constitutes the Inward Light of the Quakers, and it is all there is of essence to the Quaker doctrine. In contrast to the Ranters, the Quakers accepted the guidance of the Scriptures, and did not permit direct contact with God to lead to the emotional excesses which we still may see in the meetings of the "Holy Rollers." But the Scriptures, while the revelation of the Divine and the Word of God, were not the only Revelation, and were not necessarily superior to the experience of the Inward Light, which constituted direct contact with God. In this respect, the Quakers differed from the sects which advocated return to original Christian principles, or to the literal word of the Bible, as do some fundamentalists even today.

Society of Friends (Quakers)
The official designation of an Anglo American religious sect originally styling themselves "Children of Truth" and "Children of Light", but "in scorn by the world called Quakers". The founder of the sect George Fox, son of a well-to-do weaver, was born at Fenny Drayton in Leicestershire, England , July, 1624. His parents , upright people and strict adherents of the established religion destined him for the Church ; but since the boy, at an early period, felt a strong aversion to a "hireling ministry ", he was, after receiving the bare rudiments of education , apprenticed to a shoemaker. He grew to manhood a pure and honest youth, free from the vices of his age, and "endued", says Sewel, "with a gravity and stayedness of mind seldom seen in children". In his nineteenth year, while at a fair with two friends, who were "professors" of religion , he was so shocked by a proposal they made him to join them in drinking healths, that he abandoned their company. Returning home, he spent a sleepless night, in the course of which he thought he heard a voice from
