Anyone offering something new in theology, new in philosophy, or new in science is leaving himself open to criticism. An organization which sets forth a point of view contrary to the traditional point of view may receive much condemnation. This was the situation with the early Quakers. Their Biblical interpretation of the doctrine of Communion was unlike that of the traditional views; therefore, it was questioned.
