WEAVING IN OF ERROR

 

You must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of knowing from whom you have learned them, and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. __2 Timothy 3:14-15__

Sometimes that which men teach as “special light” is in reality specious error, which, as tares sown among the wheat, will spring up and produce a baleful harvest. And errors of this sort will be entertained by some until the close of this earth’s history. …

Truth is sustained by a plain “Thus saith the Lord.” But there has been a weaving in of error, and the use of Scriptures out of their natural connection, in order to substantiate fallacies, which would deceive, if possible, the very elect..„

Confession must come sooner or later—if not voluntarily now, then finally before the universe of heaven and the multitude that shall compose Satan’s vast army encircling the city of God in the vain supposition that numbers will pre¬vail. Those who persist in refusing to confess now will then be forced to confess their errors, their unfaithful, underhanded dealing, and all their transgression of the law of God.

Oh, how much better to confess errors now, than to leave them until the opening of the records in the books of heaven, when every act shall be revealed, and even the motives that led to the action! God reads the secrets of every heart. And the day draws near when all who have united in calling the actions of the unrighteous man just and righteous will see that they have acted a part in de-ceiving the man and that they have been partakers of his unrighteous deeds. They will then understand that, because they have strengthened his evil pro¬pensities by passing them by without reproof, they are united with him in the sin; and as surely as the Lord has spoken, they will share the punishment when it will be administered in the presence of an assembled universe. (Letter 136, April 27, 1906)

Reflection:

Let not the days pass by and precious opportunities be lost of seeking the Lord with all the heart and mind and soul. If we accept not the truth in the love of it, may be among the number who will see the miracles wrought by Satan in these last day and believe them. (Letter 136, April 27, 1906)
