I believe God created this word. It’s a word that perfectly and uniquely melds an acronym with two other words, to create a perfect description.

We do a lot of talking about the counterfeit SOP on this site. Many come and look, but do not prove. They are willing to accept what the pastor tells them, as fact. This is interesting, especially in the light of this text.

    My people hath been lost sheep: their shepherds have caused them to go astray, they have turned them away on the mountains: they have gone from mountain to hill, they have forgotten their restingplace. Jeremiah 50:6

Apparently they have not studied their Bibles either. They will be lost, shut out of Heaven because they refused instruction.

While studying something else, I found this passage. It tells an interesting tale.

 Satan is today deceiving many as he attempted to deceive Christ [in the wilderness forty day fast], claiming that he is Heaven-sent and doing a good work for humanity. And the masses of the people are so blinded by sophistry that they cannot discern his true character, and they honor him as a messenger of God, while he is working their eternal ruin. p. 90, Para. 2, [2SP ].

Let’s take a good look at this important passage.

The key word is one I alluded to in the beginning. It is “sophistry.” Taken apart, it reads, “Spirit of Prophecy, his (Satan’s) try.” An acronym and two words. Now we go back and look at this passage through other eyes, and it’s as if there were a double meaning in there. In the creation of a paraphrased version of the above passage, the meaning of this unique word, and it’s use, comes more clear.

    Through the counterfeit SOP, Satan is deceiving many, as he attempted to deceive Christ. The counterfeit SOP claims to be Heaven-sent, and many hand out copies of the Desire of Ages, thinking to do a good work for humanity. But the masses of church members are so blinded by the counterfeit SOP that they can not discern it’s true character. They honor Satan as a messenger of God, by using the counterfeit SOP, while he is working their eternal ruin through it’s errors.

Not only is it more clear, the paraphrase suddenly points up the great danger inherent in the counterfeit SOP. Because of the reactions of many who are exposed to the truth, through this site and other means, I believe the counterfeit SOP to be that strong delusion that God sent to the rebellious SDA church.

God Bless your study
