Kersey Graves – Wikipedia
Graves’ Quaker background conditioned him to the philosophy of the Inner light, whereby all clergy, creeds, and set liturgy in worship were irrelevant, and a hindrance to God’s work. This was intensified by Hicks’s brand of Quakerism – Quietism – where an individual’s spiritual life was most important and all outward manifestations were invalid.
The Congregational Friends were to the left of the Hicksites, and withdrew further from even Christianity and eventually a belief in God.
Graves died at his home just north of Richmond, Indiana on 4 September Garves held the belief that religion corrupted truth, and he evolved into a writer claiming religious belief false.
