Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear. -1 Timothy 5:20


Notice below in this email that was sent by the wife of Craig Kalkofen (Ade) how she claims (and Craig agrees) that since King David committed adultery and then repented; Craig can now stay on the pulpit after committing adultery with a 12 year old girl.

Yet notice what it says in Proverbs 6:32-33. It says, "But whoso committeth adultery with a woman lacketh understanding: he that doeth it destroyeth his own soul.  A wound and dishonour shall he get; and his reproach shall not be wiped away."

Pray for the people that trust Craig as "pastor" as they are condoning his sins as well as endangering their own eternal lives. What Craig and Ade are hiding from them is that king David was not a pastor. There is a BIG difference! Worse yet, what they're also not saying is Ellen White actually prophesied that the wicked would claim to be sorry and forgiven for committing adultery so as to stay active in the church. It's amazing how Craig is doing EXACTLY as Sister White said the wicked will do! Right down to "refusing to listen to reproof!"

Notice this...

"I saw that the seventh commandment has been violated by some who are now held in fellowship by the church. This has brought God’s frown upon them. This sin is awful in these last days, but the church has brought God’s frown and curse upon it by regarding the sin so lightly. I saw it was an enormous sin and there have not been as vigilant efforts made as there should have been to satisfy the displeasure of God and remove His frown by taking a strict, thorough course with the offender. It has had an awful, corrupting influence upon the young. They see how lightly the sin of breaking the seventh commandment is regarded, and the one who commits this horrid sin thinks that all he has to do is to confess that he was wrong and is sorry, and he is then to have all the privileges of the house of God and be held in embrace or fellowship of the church. {Ms, 1854, par.3}

They have thought it was not so great a sin, but have lightly esteemed the breaking [of] the seventh commandment.
This has been sufficient to remove the ark of God from the camp, if there were no other sins to cause the ark to be taken away and weaken Israel. {Ms, 1854, par.4}

Those who break the seventh commandment should be suspended from the church and not have its fellowship or the privileges of the house of God. {Ms, 1854, par.5}

Said the angel,
“This is not a sin of ignorance. It is a knowing sin and will receive the awful visitation of God, whether he who commits it be old or young.” {Ms, 1854, par.6}

"Never was this sin regarded by God as being so exceedingly sinful as at the present time. Why? Because God is purifying unto Himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. It is at the very time when God is purifying this peculiar people unto Himself that [unsanctified] individuals step in among us. Notwithstanding the straight truths they have heard--the terrors of the Word of God set before them, and all the blazing truth for these last days calculated to arouse Israel--they sin with a high hand, give way to all the loose passions of the carnal heart, gratify their animal propensities, disgrace the cause of God, and then confess they have sinned and are sorry!

And the church receives them and says "Amen" to their prayers and exhortations, which are a stink in the nostrils of God, and cause His wrath to come upon the camp. He will not dwell in their assemblies. Those who move on thus heedlessly, plastering over these sins, will be left to their own ways, to be filled with their own doings.

     Those who anciently committed these sins were taken without the camp and stoned to death. Temporal and eternal death was their doom; and because the penalty of stoning to death is abolished, this sin is indulged in beyond measure and is thought to be a small offense.

    It is impossible for E to be fellowshiped by the church of God. He has placed himself where he cannot be helped by the church, where he can have no communion with, nor voice in, the church. He has placed himself there in the face of light and truth. He has stubbornly chosen his own course, and refused to listen to reproof. He has followed the inclinations of his corrupt heart, has violated the holy law of God, and has disgraced the cause of present truth.  -Ms 3, 1854.

"If he repents ever so heartily, the church must let his case alone. If he goes to heaven, it must be alone, without the fellowship of the church. A standing rebuke from God and the church must ever rest upon him that the standard of morality be not lowered to the very dust.--1T 215.


Please pray for Craig and Ade. They seriously need to repent. We are so close to the end that if they do not make things right now they may never do so and their precious souls will be forever lost. This is not a game. Jesus really is coming back very soon and they, like so many others, think they are safe in their sin by claiming to be forgiven when they never truly repented. They can lie to us, but they canot life to Jesus who reads their hearts! Billions will soon be lost forever and we all need to pray for them!


Notice the unedited "testimonies to the church" quotes confirming once a minister commits adultery he must never be allowed on the pulpit again for the rest of his life.

"What saith the law? "Thou shalt not commit adultery." Exodus 20:14. When a man professing to keep God's holy law, and ministering in sacred things, takes advantage of the confidence his position gives him and seeks to indulge his base passions, this fact should of itself be sufficient to enable a woman professing godliness to see that, although his profession was as exalted as the heavens, an impure proposal coming from him was from Satan disguised as an angel of light. I cannot believe that the word of God is abiding in the hearts of those who so readily yield up their innocency and virtue upon the altar of lustful passions.   [2T 457-460 (1868).]

"When ministers thus take advantage of the confidence the people place in them and lead souls to ruin, they make themselves as much more guilty than the common sinner as their profession is higher. In the day of God, when the great Ledger of Heaven is opened, it will be found to contain the names of many ministers who have made pretensions to purity of heart and life and professed to be entrusted with the gospel of Christ, but who have taken advantage of their position to allure souls to transgress the law of God.--5T 143.

"I have no real ground of hope for those who have stood as shepherds to the flock, and have for years been borne with by the merciful God, following them with reproof, with warnings, with entreaties, but who have hid their evil ways, and continued in them, thus defying the laws of the God of heaven by practicing fornication. We may leave them to work out their own salvation with fear and trembling, after all has been done to reform them; but in no case entrust to them the guardianship of souls. False shepherds! Oh, can it be that the men who have been engaged in this work for a long time will corrupt their ways before the Lord after great experience and special light?--TM 428.

Please understand, Craig and Ade lied for 5 years about this adultery and pedophlia. Below she admits her husband committed adultery and since Craig is supposed to step down as pastor, yet refuses, according to SOP, he is still in sin as he can no longer be a pastor after committing adultery. Yet, he claims to still be a pastor to this day in direct violation of God's will. What some noticed is that Craig and Ade do admit to adultery with a 12 year old girl below, but NEVER do they mention the pedophilia / child molestation of that little girl at all. The below admission confirms that even as they admit their sin, they also cover up how bad it actually was by refusing to mention the adultery was done with a 12 year old little girl.

Here is the letter that was sent to sister Novi from Ade. It was translated into English by sister Novi. And the Cuebano language was left intact for those in the Philippines that are unaware of all this so as to prove it was not changed in any way. Also note that Ade is using mostly EDITED SOP that they know the Jesuits in the SDA church wrote to change what Ellen White said to make it appear that it is ok for Craig to stand as pastor after committing adultery. They even use the claim that David was never removed from the throne. What they left out was, a king is NOT a pastor and adultery and child molestation are not the same thing. Craig and Ade are purposely twisting SOP and Scripture to make the sin of adultery and pedophilia as if it is NO BIG DEAL for a pastor to commit. Yes, the pastor can be forgiven if he repents. But according to a clear "thus saith the Lord" he must never stand behind a pulpit for the rest of his life.


Pastor Nic, below is Ade’s email. She sent me quotes about the minister who violated the 7th commandment when to remove them from the office etc...

I will also put the translation in parenthesis. She even admitted that craig did commit a sin but already forgiven.

Kini nga email is a compilation about sa unsa ang kabobot-on sa Ginoo about ana hari, pari, disciple or unsa nga gi anoint by laying of hands nga kon makasala sila bisan unsa pa nga sala unsa mahitabo nila kon dili sila mag repent. Naa  daghan kaau example sa nagpatuyang wala matandong sa rebuke, wala mag repent ug klaro kaau nga gipulihan sila sa ilang katungdanan either by death or litiral nga gipulihan like Saul.

(This email is a compilation about whats the will of God regarding the king, priest, disciple or whatever annointed by laying of hands when they commit sin, whatever sin that they committed, if they wont repent what will happen to them. There are many examples of those who continue to sin and was not moved by rebuke, did not repent and its clear they got replaced either by death or literally removed like Saul. But there are also several recorded that sinned and repented they were not removed from the position or removed from the responsibility.)

The reason nga akoa jud ni gihagoan ug study tungod kay nabalaka ko sa imong gitoohan. First, nag gamit ka quote nga wa man lang nimo basaha tarung unsa pasabot. It tells me the Holy Spirit did not inspire you to use that quote. Infact na misapply pa gani nimo sa case ni craig. It tells me too nga wala ka nag study. Igo ra ka namunit ug quote ug gibato nimo dritso without gathering another witness to support your belief nga insakto but Thus saith the Lord I hope and pray na makasabot naka finally. Kay nag discuss nata sauna pero wala pa diay to nasabtan therefore karon with Thus saith the Lord as support makasabot naka. Nabalaka ko if this kind of spirit of faultfinding and criticism will continue to develop. This needs to stop now. Honestly it’s going too far already. You are heading the wrong direction so please stop and pray and repent and overcome this evil trait. It is not nice na ang past sin imoha pa gikaykay. If you did this to craig, you can do it to papa and the rest of them who at one point have fallen into sin. Who wants to be around that? Wala jud not even me.

(The reason I am working hard to study this is because I am worried about your beliefs. First, you used a quote that you did not read well what it meant. It tells me the Holy Spirit did not inspire you to use that quote. In fact you misapplied it to craig's case. It tells me too that you did not study. You only picked a quote and throw it directly without gathering another witness to support your belief thats right but Thus saith the Lord I hope and pray that you will finally understand. Because we discussed this before but you did not understand therefore now with Thus saith the Lord as support you will understand. I am worried if this kind of spirit of faultfinding and criticism will continue to develop. This needs to stop now. Honestly its going too far already. You are heading the wrong direction so please stop and pray and repent and overcome this evil trait. It is not nice that the past sin you are digging. If you did this to Craig, you can do it to the rest of them who at one point have fallen into sin. Who wants to be around that? No one not even me. )

 Why did God forgive David and did not remove him from office? He should have been removed, according sa quote nga imong gigamit. Gi question nimo ang ways sa Ginoo. What if sa imoha ni nato e apply ang pag ukay ukay sa imong past sin? Unsa pud kaha imong bation? Malipay ba ka? Or you will feel torn apart? Betrayed?  Imong igsoon sa pagtoo makabuhat sa imoha ana d ba ka magool bation nimo nga giyodyod ka paubos imbis nakamove on naka balikon nasad ang imong sala. Sounds familiar diba. Namatay nalang kadugayan d na, kon naa mi mga sayop nga mga choices ug naa man gani sala then rebuke ayaw pag comment sa likod nganong d ko nimo mapangutana nga pwd ra man matubag ug unsa jud ang nahitabo dili kay dritso ra ka assume nya comment dayon, react dayon unya most of the time magmahay ra ba kay d mao ang gipangsulti. Ug kon masayop mi wala man pud mi nag claim ug infallibility. We are just humans kinsa man nato d masayop sa mga choices. I hope d nalang unta mi mutaas ma end nani diri kay daghan pa kaau ko ka busyhan daghan pa kaau pending nga mga work pero nisalga nalang jud ni ky importante jud ni ma address.  I hope dili nami makadungog anang kaykay anang sala nga hagbay ra gipapas. If you still have a problem about it pagpresent nalang dritso It is written Thus saith the Lord hukasan katungdanan ang mga nakasala bisan nag repent. Dili ng isa ra ka quote dritso conclude. Taas na kaayo ang agony ni craig d nalang dungagan kaykay ky hagbay ra gipapas. Makita man pud guro nimo fruits niya nga nag repent na cya. Ug kini dili lang para ka craig kondili sa tanan nga nakasala including our two brothers nga grabe sad naagian or sa uban kon makasala man gani aron dili pud ni mahitabo sa ilaha nga bisan past na gikaykay gihapon. Tumanon nato gisulti sa Ginoo maghinolsol mangayog pasaylo kalimtan na miagi. It’s time to stop tearing other people down for this is a work of Satan, draw close to Christ and glorify Him. Matag usa naa ta mga kaluyahon ug kinahanglan maka overcome na ta tanan ASAP by the power of God.

(Why did God forgive David and did not remove him from office? He should have been removed, according to the quote that you used. You questioned the ways of God. What if we apply this to you and we will dig your past sin? what will you feel? are you going to be happy? or you will feel torn apart? betrayed? Your brother in Christ will do that to you wont you feel sad like youre being dragged down although you already moved on and then your past sin will be repeated. .... If we made wrong choices and if ever there was sin then rebuke, dont comment behind the back, why you did not asked me I can answer what really happened not directly assume and then comment right away, you reacted right away most of the time will regret because the wrong information. And if we are wrong, we did not claim of infallibility. We are just humans, who doesnt make wrong choices. I hope this wont be long and will end here because I am very busy, I have so much pending work, but I have to address this because this is very important. I hope we WONT HEAR THAT SIN THAT HAS BEEN ERASED. If you still have a problem about it present directly with an It is written Thus saith the Lord ripped off from the position THOSE WHO SINNED ALTHOUGH HE ALREADY REPENTED. Not use only one quote and then conclude. The agony of Craig has been long, dont add and dig because IT HAS BEEN ERASED. You can maybe see his fruits that HE ALREADY REPENTED. And this is not just for Craig but also for all who commited sin including our two brothers that had been thru a lot or others that if they commit sin so this wont happen to them where their past is being digged still. Let us obey what God said that if the person repented and asked forgiveness the past will be forgotten. Its time to stop tearing other people down for this is a work of Satan, draw close to Christ and glorify Him. Each of us has a weakness and needs to be overcomed asap by the power of God.)

Dili na nako e explain matag quote below. I ask the Holy Spirit to impress you so you can understand, confess and repent. I will let the truth explain and not my own words. I hope the book of this matter is going to finally close.

Salamat sa tanan ninyo help. Ang Ginoo na magbalos.

I forgive you wala ko masuko nabalaka kaau ko unsa mahitabo kon dili ka mag usab ani. Mao ra to.

(I wont explain each quote below. I ask the Holy Spirit to impress you so can understand, confess and repent. I will let the truth explain and not my own words. I hope the book of this matter is going to finally close. Thank you for your help, God will repay. I forgive you, I am not upset, I am worried what will happen to you if you wont change this. This is all. )

When does God remove an anointed one from his office?

a.       Sons of Eli (unruly, removed from office by death in the battle)

But Eli allowed his children to control him. The father became subject to the children. The curse of transgression was apparent in the corruption and evil that marked the course of his sons. They had no proper appreciation of the character of God or of the sacredness of His law. His service was to them a common thing. From childhood they had been accustomed to the sanctuary and its service; but instead of becoming more reverent, they had lost all sense of its holiness and significance. The father had not corrected their want of reverence for his authority, had not checked their disrespect for the solemn services of the sanctuary; and when they reached manhood, they were full of the deadly fruits of skepticism and rebellion. { PP 575.2}


Eli was a good man, pure in morals; but he was too indulgent. He incurred the displeasure of God because he did not strengthen the weak points in his character. He did not want to hurt the feelings of any one, and had not the moral courage to rebuke and reprove sin. His sons were vile men; yet he did not remove them from their position of trust. These sons profaned the house of God. He knew this, and felt sad in consequence of it, for he loved purity and righteousness; but he had not sufficient moral force to suppress the evil. He loved peace and harmony, and became more and more insensible to impurity and crime. But the great God takes thematter in hand himself. When the rebuke falls upon him, through the instrumentality of a child, he accepts it, feeling that it is what he deserves. He does not show any resentment toward Samuel, the messenger of God; he loves him as he has done, but condemns himself. { GW92 82.3 }


Though wholly unfit for the office, they were placed as priests in the sanctuary to minister before God. The Lord had given the most specific directions in regard to offering sacrifices; but these wicked men carried their disregard of authority into the service of God, and did not give attention to the law of the offerings, which were to be made in the most solemn manner. { PP 576.1}


The sons of Eli feared not God, nor honored their father;


These unfaithful priests also transgressed God’s law and dishonored their sacred office by their vile and degrading practices; yet they continued to pollute by their presence the tabernacle of God. Many of the people, filled with indignation at the corrupt course of Hophni and Phinehas, ceased to come up to the appointed place of worship. Thus the service which God had ordained was despised and neglected because associated with the sins of wicked men, while those whose hearts were inclined to evil were emboldened in sin. Ungodliness, profligacy, and even idolatry prevailed to a fearful extent. { PP 576.4}


They saw the grief of their father, but their hard hearts were not touched. They heard his mild admonitions, but they were not impressed, nor would they change their evil course though warned of the consequences of their sins. Had Eli dealt justly with his wicked sons, they would have been rejected from the priestly office and punished with death. Dreading thus to bring public disgrace and condemnation upon them, he sustained them in the most sacred positions of trust. He still permitted them to mingle their corruption with the holy service of God and to inflict upon the cause of truth an injury which years could not efface. But when the judge of Israel neglected his work, God took the matter in hand. { PP 577.1}


The guilty sons of Eli were slain in battle. { GW92 83.1 }


b.      Sons of Aaron (unruly, self-indulgent, intoxicated with wine removed from office by death)

Nadab and Abihu had not in their youth been trained to habits of self-control. The father’s yielding disposition, his lack of firmness for right, had led him to neglect the discipline of his children. His sons had been permitted to follow inclination. Habits of self-indulgence, long cherished, obtained a hold upon them which even the responsibility of the most sacred office had not power to break. They had not been taught to respect the authority of their father, and they did not realize the necessity of exact obedience to the requirements of God. Aaron’s mistaken indulgence of his sons, prepared them to become the subjects of divine judgments.—Patriarchs and Prophets, 360. { CE 227.1 }


Leviticus  10:1-2 And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered strange fire before the LORD, which he commanded them not. And there went out fire from the LORD, and devoured them, and they died before the LORD


Nadab and Abihu were men in holy office; but by the use of wine their minds became so clouded that they could not distinguish between sacred and common things. By the offering of “strange fire” they disregarded God’s command, and were slain by his judgments. { CTBH 28.4 }


 Another application of the sins of Nabad and Abihu

The most corrupt principles are strengthened by this un-Scriptural way of raising means. And this is as Satan would have it. Men are repeating the sin of Nadab and Abihu. They are using common instead of sacred fire in the service of God. The Lord accepts no such offerings. { CS 205.1}


Do not, because you are among unbelievers, become careless in your words; for they are taking your measure. Study the instruction given to Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron. They “offered strange fire before the Lord, which He commanded them not.” Taking common fire they placed it upon their censers. …  Canvassers should remember that they are working with the Lord to save souls, and that they are to bring no commonness or cheapness into His sacred service. Let the mind be filled with pure, holy thoughts, and let the words be well chosen. Hinder not the success of your work by uttering light, careless words.—Manual for Canvassers, 23, 24. { CEv 91.3 }


Like Nadab and Abihu, their sensibilities are so blunted that they make no difference between the sacred and common. Holy and sacred things are brought down upon a level with their tobacconized breaths, benumbed brains, and their polluted souls, defiled through indulgence of appetite and passion. Professed Christians eat and drink, smoke and chew tobacco, and become gluttons and drunkards, to gratify appetite, and still talk of overcoming as Christ overcame!—Redemption; or the Temptation of Christ, 82-86. { Te 45.4}



The character of self-indulgence of the sons of Aaron did not come by chance nor two times nor three. It is a long cherished habits and it became a character and eventually they were removed from office. We cannot find a single record from Bible that a priest or apostle or a prophet who committed a particular sin was removed from office immediately. But we can prove that those removed from office were due to their continual disregard to the warnings and reproof from God. None of those who repented were removed.


c.       Saul – unrepentant removed from office and replaced

Test of faith – failed

Saul had failed to bear the test of faith in the trying situation at Gilgal, and had brought dishonor upon the service of God; but his errors were not yet irretrievable, and the Lord would grant him another opportunity to learn the lesson of unquestioning faith in His word and obedience to His commands. { PP 627.1}


Test of obedience (kill all Amalekites) 1 Sam 15:3

1 Sam  15:9          But Saul and the people spared Agag, and the best of the sheep, and of the oxen, and of the fatlings, and the lambs, and all [that was] good, and would not utterly destroy them: but every thing [that was] vile and refuse, that they destroyed utterly. 


God was still merciful to Saul, gave him a chance to repent:

Samuel cherished a hope that, upon reflection, Saul might become conscious of his sin, and by repentance and humiliation be again restored to the divine favor. But when the first step is taken in the path of transgression the way becomes easy. Saul, debased by his disobedience, came to meet Samuel with a lie upon his lips. He exclaimed, “Blessed be thou of the Lord: I have performed the commandment of the Lord.” { PP 630.2}


As the king heard this fearful sentence he cried out, “I have sinned: for I have transgressed the commandment of the Lord, and thy words: because I feared the people, and obeyed their voice.” Terrified by the denunciation of the prophet, Saul acknowledged his guilt, which he had before stubbornly denied; but he still persisted in casting blame upon the people, declaring that he had sinned through fear of them. { PP 631.3}


Result of his persistent disobedience to God’s command:

1 Sam 15:23        For rebellion [is as] the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness [is as] iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from [being] king. 



d.      Peter – denied Jesus but repented and forgiven

Three times Peter had openly denied his Lord, and three times Jesus drew from him the assurance of his love and loyalty, pressing home that pointed question, like a barbed arrow to his wounded heart. Before the assembled disciples Jesus revealed the depth of Peter’s repentance, and showed how thoroughly humbled was the once boasting disciple. { LHU 224.2}


e.      David – adultery and ordered to kill Uriah, repented and forgiven

The prophet’s rebuke touched the heart of David; conscience was aroused; his guilt appeared in all its enormity. His soul was bowed in penitence before God. With trembling lips he said, “I have sinned against the Lord.” All wrong done to others reaches back from the injured one to God. David had committed a grievous sin, toward both Uriah and Bathsheba, and he keenly felt this. But infinitely greater was his sin against God. { PP 722.1}


But the history of David furnishes no countenance to sin. It was when he was walking in the counsel of God that he was called a man after God’s own heart. When he sinned, this ceased to be true of him until by repentance he had returned to the Lord. { PP 723.1}


f.        Judas – long cherished sins, betrayed Jesus, did not repent

Infinite love could do no more to bring Judas to repentance, and save him from taking this fatal step. If this service of his Master, in humbling Himself to wash the feet of the worst sinner, did not break his heart, what more could be done? It was the last act of love that Jesus could evidence in behalf of Judas. Infinite love could not compel Judas to repent, confess his sin, and be saved. Every opportunity was granted him. Nothing was left undone that could be done to save him from the snare of Satan ( The Review and Herald, June 14, 1898 )


Though Jesus knew Judas from the beginning, He washed his feet. And the betrayer was privileged to unite with Christ in partaking of the sacrament. A long-suffering Saviour held out every inducement for the sinner to receive Him, to repent, and to be cleansed from the defilement of sin. This example is for us. When we suppose one to be in error and sin, we are not to divorce ourselves from him. By no careless separation are we to leave him a prey to temptation, or drive him upon Satan’s battleground. This is not Christ’s method. It was because the disciples were erring and faulty that He washed their feet, and all but one of the twelve were thus brought to repentance. { DA 655.4}


What did God say to those ministers who fell into sin (7th commandment))?

This is written in the books of heaven, and in a little time your case will be decided, whether your name shall be blotted out from the Book of Life or not. It certainly will be unless you are a converted man, and humble your soul before God, and confess your sins, and turn unto the Lord with your whole heart, and purge from you every impure thought and corrupt action. Says the True Witness, “I know thy works.” Do not attempt to teach the people until you are a changed man, until you have in humble penitence sought the Lord with true contrition of soul, and have a new heart. { TSB 194.3}

I tell you the truth, Elder Butler, that unless there is a cleansing of the soul temple on the part of many who claim to believe and to preach the truth, God’s judgments, long deferred, will come. These debasing sins have not been handled with firmness and decision. There is corruption in the soul, and, unless it is cleansed by the blood of Christ, there will be apostasies among us that will startle you. { TSB 193.1}

What you need, my brother, is a pure and holy heart. Cease at once from attempting to teach the truth until you know that in the strength of God you can overcome lust.   { TSB 195.2}

 The Lord calls upon you, my brother, to step down from the work, leave the walls of Zion, or be a converted man.   { TSB 197.1}

[Kani na minister nagplano na iyang anakan ni na babaye didto sa langit which is a spiritualistic idea kay wala na baya minyoanay sa langit. Ang babaye dili iya asawa. Gisultihan cya nga mag-usab wala siya giingnan kuhaan siya katungdanan bisan mag usab pa siya]

To all who are indulging in these unholy fancies I would say, Stop, for Christ’s sake, stop right where you are. You are on forbidden ground. Repent, I entreat of you, and be converted. { TSB 200.3}


May the Lord help you is my prayer. Now is the time to fight the good fight of faith. Now is the time to wrestle against the prompting of the natural heart. Now is your time to be as true as steel to your marriage vows, refusing, in thought, word, or deed, to spoil your record as a man who fears God and obeys His commandments. You have been imbibing spiritualistic ideas. But if you will now turn wholly to God, the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ will be imparted to you, and truth will triumph in your life.—Letter 231, 1903. { TSB 201.4}



Invitation to Work in Another Country [A letter written to a repentant minister who had broken the seventh commandment.]—Dear Brother V: I have this morning received and read your letter, and if I do not answer at once I fear it will pass from my mind....


In regard to your changing your location, I would mention to you England. There is a large field and but few workers, plenty of work to be done in which all may act a part—all of your family, if they desire to give themselves to the Lord and act a part in His cause. You will find room enough to work, and if you go forth to labor in meekness and humility, redeeming the past errors of your life, God will accept you. There is need of laborers in England, and the advantage of that country over other parts of Europe is that our American brethren do not have to work through an interpreter.


Should you come to England you will certainly find work enough to do, and God is merciful; He pities our weakness; He forgives our transgressions; and, if we will only live humble and penitent, if we will cease from evil and do well, the Lord will approve. May the Lord teach you and work for you.  Letter 41, 1886



God’s promise to the repentant:

In like manner you are a sinner. You cannot atone for your past sins; you cannot change your heart and make yourself holy. But God promises to do all this for you through Christ. You believe that promise. You confess your sins and give yourself to God. You will to serve Him. Just as surely as you do this, God will fulfill His word to you.
