The Argument

People looking in often say it is Christianity, but many Quakers don’t feel they are. Quakers believe each person has an inner light (part of God's spirit) inside them and that each human being is of unique worth. This is why Quakers value all people equally, and oppose anything that may harm or threaten them.[1] Quakers seek religious truth in inner experience, and place great reliance on conscience as the basis of morality. Quakers integrate religion into everyday life. They believe God can be found in the middle of everyday life and human relationships.[1] There is good and evil inside all human beings, and all human beings can choose between them - everyone has the power to choose good over evil if they really want to. Quakers want to make this a better world.[1]
