1987 - Aversion To the Truth Continues

Our aversion to the truth of Minneapolis [where the 1888 message was proclaimed] is not lessened with the passing of time. In 1987 George R. Knight authored From 1888 to Apostasy: The Case of A. T. Jones. This was his first of several books about 1888. He states in the preface that his primary purpose is “to develop Jones’s biography.” However some book reviews published in 1988 seriously question this purpose. One reviewer says: “He [Knight] is being totally irresponsible as a biographer.

The Spirit of Freedom

E. J. Waggoner

“For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together” (Rom. 8:14–17).

Quote: "Justification is a fact . . .."

E. J. Waggoner

“There is but one thing in this world that a man needs and that is justification—and justification is a fact, not a theory. It is the gospel. That which does not tend to righteousness is of no avail, and not worthy to be preached. Righteousness can only be attained through faith; consequently all things worthy to be preached must tend to justification by faith.”

--General Conference Daily Bulletin, March 11, 1891, p. 74.

“The Anointing Teaches You All Things”

E. J. Waggoner, London

The reason why the disciples mourned and wept and were sad after the crucifixion of Jesus, is given in John 20:9: “For as yet they did not know the Scripture, that He must rise again from the dead.” This evidently does not mean that they were not familiar with the words of that scripture, for “the voices of the prophets'” were “read in their synagogue every Sabbath day;”' and the sacred writings were the chief study of every Jew. Yet notwithstanding this, “they did not know the Scripture.”

Letter from E. J. Waggoner to his daughter Pearl, 1905

A new posting was just made under the HISTORY menu!

It is a letter from E. J. Waggoner written in answer to one his daughter Pearl wrote to him. 

In the letter it will be noticed that Waggoner tells her that he does not read other mens opinions to find out truth, but only uses the Bible. This removes the thoughts that he was 'influenced by others teachings and lost his way.'
