Mainstream Christian Sites
A critique by a mainstream Christian who has some useful information and downloads. A lot of his criticisms reflect a concern there is little recognition of the Biblical concept of grace. There are also some testimonies and a booklet “What They Said Would Happen” which deals with failed Christadelphian prophecies.
Want Some Answers?RECOMMENDED!!
Interesting critique by a mainstream Christian in response to Christadelphians writing to him.
The Christadelphians Confirm Cult StatusRECOMMENDED!!
A critique of a talk given by a Christadelphian in Cardiff, Wales, denying they are a cult. Although the commentators definition of a cult is primarily a theological one of non orthodoxy to mainstream Christian views, and therefore can be misleading in some respects, it does make some excellent points. It also clearly deals with some common misconceptions and misinformation frequently used by Christadelphians, such as inventing a history of predecessors to John Thomas.
Out of Church ChristiansRECOMMENDED!!
It may be worth noting that throughout the Christian world huge numbers of folk are questioning their religious traditions and despite many differences are coming to very similar conclusions. An interesting book about this phenomenon called “Out of Church Christians” can be read here. In other words there is a desire by many to go past institutionalised forms of Christianity based upon creeds and systems of church authority.
A Christian website which focuses on apologetics. Has a section critiquing Christadelphian theology.
An article from a site, Recovering Grace, for former members of another exclusive grouping.

THE TRINITY HURDLE
NOVEL: HOLY BIBLE
You lay a great stress upon facts throughout your letters, and are incessant in your demand that I should attend to them. This is good; but facts have to be rightly put together, and then you must have all the facts. I do not think you put the facts rightly together, and you leave out some, I am sure.
(Robert Roberts, a Christadelphian Pioneer, quoted
by Ruth McHaffie in Brethren Indeed)
The Spirit of liberty, based upon the law of faith, is the Spirit of Christ; and this spirit all the Sons of God are privileged to possess, and having it, to breathe. I claim the right of exercising this privilege, as well as my contemporaries; and I require of them that they should do to me as once they loudly required others to do to them…
(written by John Thomas, the founder of the Christadelphians, when he was against creeds in
The Apostolic Advocate magazine, August 1836)
(John Thomas, from Apostacy Unveiled, p. 137,
quoted in The Christadelphian Magazine, January 1906)
Must a man never progress? If he discovers an error in his premises, must he for ever hold to it for the sake of consistency? May such a calamity never befall me! Rather let me change every day, till I get right at last.
(from a letter written by John Thomas in 1848, quoted by Robert Roberts, in Dr. Thomas: His Life and Work)
Do what is right; be valiant for the Truth; teach it without compromise, and all lovers of the Truth will approve you. For all others you need not care a rush!
(from a letter written by John Thomas to Robert Roberts and published in The Christadelphian magazine, February 1866)
