And a CM gave me a quiz that said I'm a 100 percent orthodox quaker. Ok... Anybody on here a quaker and want to talk about it?
Here's a link that tells about them and there beliefs. You can also google - Religous Society of Friends which is also the Quakers. I had a friend whose husband was a Socity of Friends pastor and from discussions with her there was nothing that made me think there teachings were unbliblical.

The Quakers (aka Society of Friends) are an interesting denomination. What I specifically remember about their doctrine is that they believe that you can have a personal relationship with God without an intermediary (priest or minister). They are pretty liberal. I also remember a pretty deep concept they hold about the resurrection of Christ - something to the effect that Christ didn't die & wasn't resurrected because he is always present & thus couldn't "die," the resurrection was the disciples interpretation of what happened when they saw Jesus again because humans tend to think in the concept of physical & human. Sorry that is a bad description & might not be right on, but it is something like that. It has been awhile since I read it. It is a very personal, spiritual, path.
