My own thoughts are found in a section called Denial of the Supernatural and are brief.  I believe the early Christians did believe in a spirit devil and spirit demons and it was not simply a belief in the personification of human nature.  This is the simplest way to read the relevant passages.  I would suggest the Christadelphian position is a rationalisation which has an appeal due to the worldview presented by modern science.  The creative influence behind this interpretation owes its origins to a period called “The Age of Enlightenment.”  This is incidentally how it was seen by contemporary critics of John Thomas who often referred to his beliefs as “materialism.”
