Books of a new order
We were warned from the writings of Sister White that 'changes would be made'. A great work would be done, but the truths that were well established would be cast aside. All the work of the Pioneers would be called error. Wasn't Sister White a Pioneer? She was literally a co-founder of the denomination. So if you call the Pioneers or refer to them as being in error, then you don't honestly adhere to the counsel of God's messenger. Theology and scholars have now replaced the detail and inspiration of bible study. Our people have become dumbed down to pew warmers attending church like a spectator sport. God has now been placed into the spiritual realm of a mystery and we can't understand it. Spiritual formation and contemplative player have been brought in by the enemy. WAKE UP FOLKS! We are looking for the enemy from in front of us when we have already been taken from behind decades ago.
“The enemy of souls has sought to bring in the supposition that a great reformation was to take place among Seventh-Day Adventists, and that this reformation would consist in giving up the doctrines which stand as the pillars of our faith, and engaging in a process of reorganization. Were this reformation to take place, what would result? The principles of truth that God in His wisdom has given to the remnant church, would be discarded. Our religion would be changed. The fundamental principles that have sustained the work for the last fifty years (1853-1903) would be accounted as error. A new organization would be established. Books of a new order would be written. A system of intellectual philosophy would be introduced. Nothing would be allowed to stand in the way of the new movement. The leaders would teach that virtue is better than vice, but God being removed, they would place their dependence on human power, which, without God, is worthless. Their foundation would be built on the sand, and storm and tempest would sweep away the structure.” - Selected Messages Book 1, p. 204; Letter 242, October 1903
