A Message to the Mockers in Leadership

Warning Against Despising God’s Message

I would speak in warning to those who have stood for years resisting light and cherishing the spirit of opposition. How long will you hate and despise the messengers1 of God’s righteousness? God has given them His message. They bear the word of the Lord. There is salvation for you, but only through the merits of Jesus Christ. The grace of the Holy Spirit has been offered you again and again.

The Last Days - E. G. White

The Need of the Holy Spirit; Final Events

I think of the meditation of Christ and the promise, “I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you” (John 14:18). The agency of the Holy Spirit is to combine with human effort, and all heaven is engaged in the work of preparing a people to stand in these last days. The end is near, and we want to keep the future world in view. The burden of my prayer is that the churches may be aroused from their moral [stupor] and awaken to earnest, interested endeavor.

2002: 'Evidence Heaped Upon Evidence'

2002 . . .

The most noted apostates in Adventist history have never been maligned with the vengeance this treatise heaps upon Elder M. L. Andreasen and the authors of 1888 Re-examined.

1989 - Knight Contradicts Ellen White

1989 . . .

After but two years George R. Knight brings to the church another treatise, Angry Saints, with seven chapters, six built upon the idea of “Crisis.” The stated theme is “essentially a study of Adventist history.” This volume is a sequel to his 1987 book, From 1888 to Apostasy: The Case of A. T. Jones, but it adds some 19 specific derogatory references to the authors of 1888 Re-examined. 

"Actual Rejection of the Latter Rain"

1980 . . .

Selected Messages, book three, was released by the Ellen G. White Publications containing a supplied 33-page editorial account of the Minneapolis Conference. As was done in the 1962 edition of Testimonies to Ministers, the compilers inserted seven pages of their ideas to condition the reader. The section is introduced by “A Statement Presenting the Historical Backgrounds.” Twice, reference is made to a vote not being taken on the issues. “No conference actions were taken” (p.
