On this site we prove the existence of the counterfeit SOP. When we take the time to give this point some serious thought we are forced by facts to certain conclusions.

 

1.) The very existence of a counterfeit proves the existence of the authentic, the real.

2.) The counterfeit seeks to take the place of the authentic.

3.) Evil intent is behind the counterfeit.

4.) There are people with evil intent behind the counterfeit because it will not come into existence on it’s own, people must create it.

5.) Because it has been 135 years since the counterfeit was begun, and, just over 100 years since it generally stopped, the original people involved in it’s creation are dead and buried. This means that those who promote the counterfeit as being of value, are more or less deceived, assuming that they are not of that small group who actually know the facts.

 

With this train of thought as a backdrop against which to observe people professing this faith today, we see that it must take time to educate and inform and we must needs be as gentle with them as God was with us in leading us in the right path, that strait and narrow way.

 

However…..

Some exposed to the existence of the counterfeit SOP will let it be known that they are fully confident in their reading and study to be able to discern any error that might be present. And it is exactly at this point that we want to focus for a moment.

The error that might be is present is actually hidden by the fog of darkness created by their own pride.

 

Three items immediately come to mind;

1.) Satan has one-hundred times greater power to deceive now than when he deceived the angels in Heaven. No.23,p.103

2.) “As we near the close of time, the human mind is more readily affected by Satan’s devices.” R&H, February 18, 1862

And, as if that were not enough….

3.) Laodiceans universally think that they arerich in spiritual discernment, when they are blind, poor, and wretched. They are doing the work of Satan, and thinking they have a zeal for God.” No.23,p.12

WOW! Good luck with that!, cause luck is all you can count on.

 

Many are the voices of warning for SDAs. But, it my opinion, any true warning is going to incorporate the following:

1.) The correct definition of inspiration—meaning that God, not Ellen, is the true author of the real Spirit of Prophecy and it speaks ONLY truth. No.26,p.11

2.) Total rejection of the gross errors of the counterfeit SOP for what it is—the lies of Satan.

3.) A true, not fake, love of Christ, manifested by keeping his words, John 14:22-24, by actions.

4.) A humble conformity to present truth, as defined by the pioneers that were in all three messages and firm in all the present truth.
The Present Truth, No.11,p.86

 

God Bless your Study
