Early Quakerism sounds like early Pentecostalism

They were more egalitarian and more mystical and less Bible oriented

They were super Bible-oriented. Always.

Inner light. But I like their emphasis on egalitarianism.

Turning his attention to A.J. Tomlinson, Phillips offers what is clearly the most detailed examination to date of Tomlinson’s life and ministry through 1923. Identifying his Quaker origins, Phillips traces and documents Frank Sandford’s direct influence upon Tomlinson and the developing Church of God. http://www.pentecostaltheology.com/quest-to-restore-gods-house-a-theological-history-of-the-church-of-god/

According to the Quaker historian Rufus Jones, the “pantheistic-mystical sects,” gaining momentum in England since the fourteenth century, enjoyed a period of resurgence in late Tudor and early Stuart England, culminating with the Ranters, Seekers, Muggletonians, Familists, and Quakers. http://www.pentecostaltheology.com/the-quaker-way-has-deep-christian-roots/

The Quakers and the association of people who Would become the Pentecostal Holiness Church considered a merger in the late 1890’s.

    There are a lot of movements that sound quite Pentecostal in their beginnings. I have even found reference to the beginnings of the Mennonites, having tongues and prophecy. As a Mennonite for most of my life, I had not heard of this, until I became a Pentecostal.
