V. SDA Distinctive Doctrines
“When you have a congregation before
you for only two weeks, do not defer
the presentation of the Sabbath
question until everything else is
presented, supposing that you thus
pave the way for it. Lift up the
standard, the commandments of God,
and the faith of Jesus…
V. SDA Distinctive Doctrines
Make this the important theme. Then,
by your strong arguments, make it
still a greater force… The present
truth is to be our burden, The third
angel’s message must do its work of
separating from the churches a
people who will take their stand on
the platform of eternal truth.”
(Evangelism, 229)
