Perils of False Science
keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings,
and oppositions of science falsely so called. 1 Tim. 6:20.
In New Hampshire there were those who were active in disseminating false ideas
in regard to God. Light was given me that these men were making the truth
of no effect by their ideas, some of which led to free-lovism. I was shown
that these men were seducing souls by presenting speculative theories regarding
God. . . .
views, they held that those once sanctified could not sin, and this they were
presenting as gospel food. Their false theories, with their burden of deceptive
influence, were working great harm to themselves and to others. They were
gaining a spiritualistic power over those who could not see the evil of these
beautifully clothed theories. Great evils had already resulted. The doctrine
that all were holy had led to the belief that the affections of the sanctified
were never in danger of leading astray. The result of this belief was the
fulfillment of the evil desires of hearts which, though professedly sanctified,
were far from purity of thought and practice. This is only one of the instances
in which I was called upon to rebuke those who were presenting the doctrine
of an impersonal god diffused through nature, and the doctrine of holy flesh.

will be presented as safe doctrines. False science is one of the agencies
that Satan used in the heavenly courts, and it is used by him today. . . .
those who are laboring for God not to accept the spurious for the genuine.
We have a whole Bible full of the most precious truth. We have no need for
supposition or false excitement. In the golden censer of truth, as presented
in Christ's teachings, we have that which will convict and convert souls.
Present in the simplicity of Christ the truths that He came to this world
to proclaim, and the power of your message will make itself felt. Do not present
theories or tests that have no foundation in the Bible.
