For some reason, the SDA sites I scope don't include P. 57 & several others when quoting her Early Writings. I'll say they're trying to cover up the fact she was a quack, & don't wanna admit it themselves.AV 2Pt 3:8-9 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day [is] with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
I can see you using your scale of "slackness".
Please Cut-N-paste from "(Early Writings, p.57)", that will support your conclusion please.
I do not see any dates quoted from her writings, either.
AV 2C 12:9-10 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.
Okay, Why does GOD use weak people then ???
Yours in Christ, Michael
And God can use anyone for anything. He used pagans to punish Israel & to punish other pagans.
