Matthew , Mark , and Luke contain several synoptic accounts, which John occasionally concurs in. Exorcism in Capernaum Mk. Jesus makes a practice of teaching in the Capernaum synagogue on Sabbath. One Sabbath he exorcises an unclean spirit , and also heals Peter’s wife’s mother. After sundown that day, he heals many people, and early in the morning of the first day, he goes out to pray alone. Lord of the Sabbath Mt. When his disciples pick heads of wheat and eat them, Jesus tells objectors that, because Sabbath was made for man, the Son of Man is Lord of Sabbath. Sabbatarians believe that Sabbath-keeping is central to following Christ, and that he highly regarded Sabbath; some non-Sabbatarian Protestants and Catholics believe that Christ has power to abrogate Sabbath via a “better dispensation”, and that he did so as with all ceremonial law.

Biblical Sabbath is a weekly day of rest or time of worship given in the Bible as the seventh day.

Splits[ edit ] In the 19th century, there was a diversification of theological beliefs in the Religious Society of Friends, and this led to several large splits within the Quaker movement. Hicksite—Orthodox split[ edit ] The Hicksite—Orthodox split arose out of both ideological and socio-economic tensions. Philadelphia Yearly Meeting Hicksites tended to be agrarian and poorer than the more urban, wealthier, Orthodox Quakers.
With increasing financial success, Orthodox Quakers wanted to “make the Society a more respectable body—to transform their sect into a church—by adopting mainstream Protestant orthodoxy”. Hicksites viewed the Bible as secondary to the individual cultivation of God’s light within. Conversely, within the Hicksite movement the rejection of the market economy and the continuing focus on community and family bonds tended to encourage women to retain their role as powerful arbiters.
Elias Hicks ‘ religious views were claimed to be universalist and to contradict Quakers’ historical orthodox Christian beliefs and practices. They were referred to by their opponents as Hicksites and by others, and sometimes themselves, as orthodox. Quakers in Great Britain only recognised the Orthodox Quakers and refused to correspond with the Hicksites. He published a book titled A Beacon to the Society of Friends in , which strongly argued that the inward light could not exist alongside a religious belief in salvation by the atonement of Christ.
Some of these Quakers joined the Plymouth Brethren Church. Rise of Gurneyite Quakerism, and the Gurneyite—Conservative split[ edit ] Joseph John Gurney was a prominent 19th century British Friend and a strong proponent of evangelical views Orthodox Friends became more evangelical during the 19th century  and were influenced by the Second Great Awakening. Christian Friends held Revival meetings in America and became involved in the Holiness movement of churches.
Quakers such as Hannah Whitall Smith and Robert Pearsall Smith became speakers in the religious movement and introduced Quaker phrases and practices to it.

William Chie lived at Carlingford, a suburb to the northwest of Sydney, in an area of gently undulating hills covered in fruit trees, the scattered orchards serviced by dirt roads. Here for many years he kept a poultry farm and had a productive orchard in which he grew fine apricots. The majority of his neighbours also had orchards and kept poultry.
Not far from his home on Pennant Parade, on the corner of the main road linking Carlingford and Epping, was a small wooden church belonging to a small company of Seventh-day Adventists.
