Letter from N.D. Pendleton to Rev. Albert Bjorck, 1930-07-19

Identifier: RG.004.01

Scope and Contents

Typed letter from N.D. Pendleton to Rev. Albert Bjorck in Woodgreen, Salisbury, England. Pendleton was pleased with Bjorck’s letter of July 3rd. Pendleton has always seen the Writings as a rational revelation which can be accessed by a direct approach. The term ‘rational’ includes the spiritual and celestial, as these are the degrees of the natural mind. Pendleton thinks that much of what Pfeiffer says is true, but that the conclusions of his ideas lead to grave consequences for the Church. Pendleton feels that Pfeiffer’s position, “whatever if may be, is not yet fully out in the open” because it is “undeveloped as to its consequences.” Theodore Pitcairn has claimed that Bjorck writes apart from his proprium, a statement Pendleton finds troubling. Pendleton hopes that Bjorck’s improved health mean she will be able to attend the upcoming British Assembly. Names mentioned: Mr. (Ernst) Pfeiffer, Theodore Pitcairn, the Oylers
