Recent reference by Jacob Prasch to the former London Messianic Congregation that was discredited by the moral scandals of Mr. Charles Snow (who called himself a 'messianic rabbi') and polygamist Philip Sharp (of the same title and also ludicrously claiming to be a messiah figure with 7 wives) mentioned that this congregation formerly met at Bridge Lane Chapel in North London. This was stated in the context only referring to where this sad congregation met at the time some years ago. It had and has absolutely no connection whatsoever to or with the current congregation meeting at Bridge Lane called 'The Bridge'  presently pastored by Mr. Tony Pearce. 

The London Messianic Fellowship (LMF) indeed became defined by horrible scandal resulting in a tumultuous amount of damage in several quarters with unfortunate ramifications enduring even until the present day, but it was not at all in any way a ministry or function of Bridge Lane Chapel. 

Neither do these LMF events elaborated upon in connection with a scriptural exposition of the text of Galatians 5:9 relate to the erroneous teaching of Mr. Richard Snowdon despite common location. Positively no association between LMF and 'The Bridge' existed and no such association should be implied, nor was intended to be implied. They are wholly separate entities. 

We apologetically regret any misunderstanding that may have inadvertently resulted from inadequate phraseology that appears to have led one person at least to misconstrue  what was stated. The mention of Bridge Lane  was a mere citation of a geographical location that it seems in retrospect should perhaps have been better qualified, and nothing more. 

Finally, neither at any time was Mr. Tony Pearce involved in the leadership of LMF. While we cannot speak for him, Tony Pearce himself  did at the time add his voice, along with many others, to the chorus of those who decried the shameful legacy of scandal that emerged from LMF during that painful period. To his credit,  Tony Pearce was also one of those who tried to pick up the pieces and restore a scripturally based and morally solid testimony to the Jewish community in the Bridge Lane area in the aftermath of that sad fiasco that wrecked so much ugly havoc. The lot largely fell to Tony Pearce to clean up a terrible mess that was not of his making. 

The exegesis and exposition by Jacob Prasch focused on the Neo-Galatianism of the extreme axis of the contemporary messianic movement where Galatians 5:9 directly applied and where a classical example of ignoring the caveats of Paul the Apostle as author of that Epistle took place at LMF. These events occurred at LMF alone and  most certainly did not transpire at 'The Bridge', and there was no suggested inference to the contrary. While we do however reiterate our assertion that Richard Snowdon is a false teacher, we are assured that leadership at The Bridge is not in agreement with Mr. Snowdon's divisive teaching on leaven that triggered this entire episode and the reactions to it.  However understandable, such reactions have already gotten too far out of hand. For this unfortunate and regrettable situation , there is very frankly more than enough blame to go around. Mr. Snowdon's erroneous and falsely accusatory teaching and the responses to it have not been handled well by anyone. Giving platform to such error was a mistake, but so is the manner in which his antics were addressed a mistake. We can and should cite the devil as architect of it all, yet the culpability is shared by all involved, ourselves included. 

Sincerely In Christ,

Moriel (UK)
