General Introduction

 

 

‘The warnings of the word of God regarding the perils surrounding the Christian Church belong to us today. As in the days of the apostles men tried by tradition and philosophy to destroy faith in the Scriptures, so today, by the pleasing sentiments of higher criticism [which began in Germany in 1600s with Spinoza who sought for the historical understandings behind the literature of the Bible, rather than seeing words to touch the heart], evolution [teaching that God had no part in origins of life], spiritualism [no law, no sin, no judgement, no death, so no Saviour needed] theosophy (forming the brotherhood of man by a knowledge of God through ecstasy, intuition, and special revelation—Helen Blavatsky), and pantheism [God is in everything, He is part of the process of Creation] the enemy of righteousness is seeking to lead souls into forbidden paths.

 

‘To many the Bible is as a lamp without oil, because they have turned their minds into channels of speculative belief that bring misunderstanding and confusion. The work of higher criticism in dissecting, conjecturing, reconstructing, is destroying faith in the Bible as a divine revelation. It is robbing God’s word of power to control, uplift, and inspire human lives. By spiritualism, multitudes are taught to believe that desire is the highest law, that license is liberty, and that man is accountable only to himself.

 

‘The follower of Christ will meet with the “enticing words” against which the apostle warned the Colossian believers. He will meet with spiritualistic interpretations of the Scriptures, but he is not to accept them. His voice is to be heard in clear affirmation of the eternal truths of the Scriptures. Keeping his eyes fixed on Christ, he is to move steadily forward in the path marked out, discarding all ideas that are not in harmony with His teaching. The truth of God is to be the subject for his contemplation and meditation. He is to regard the Bible as the voice of God speaking directly to him. Thus he will find the wisdom which is divine.’ Acts of the Apostles, page 475. 

 

 

‘Satan never sleeps. He is watching, and he improves every opportunity to set his agents to scatter error, ‘ Testimonies, volume 3, page 113.

 

 

In our Christian life, let us live and speak by this verse:

 

‘For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ.’  2 Corinthians 2:17.
