The Sovereignty of Truth

There is no excuse for any one in taking the position that there is no more truth to be revealed and that all our ex­positions of Scripture are without error.

Mrs. E. G. White

There is no excuse for any one in taking the position that there is no more truth to be revealed and that all our ex­positions of Scripture are without error. The fact that certain doctrines have been held as truth for many years by our people, is not a proof that our ideas are infallible. Age will not make error into truth, and truth can afford to be fair. No true doe-trine will lose anything by close investiga­tion. We are living in perilous times and it does not become us to accept everything claimed to be truth without examining it thoroughly; neither can we afford to reject anything that bears the fruits of the Spirit of God; but we should be teachable, meek, and lowly of heart. There are those who oppose everything that is not in accordance with their own ideas, and by so doing they endanger their eternal interest as verily as did the Jewish nation in their rejection of Christ.

The Lord designs that our opinions shall be put to the test, that we may see the necessity of closely examining the living oracles to see whether or not we are in the faith.—Review and Herald, Dec. 20, 1892.
