Just one quick note (FYI).


Leroy Moore's "positive-negative pole" jibberish is straight out of Dale Carnagie's "How to win friends and influence people", and Stephen R. Covey's "The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People".


The "pole" jibberish is nothing other than "positive mental attitude" spiritualism teaching found in the "self-help" section of any bookstore.


One thing is certain, it is Moore and his comrades who are "causing the weak minded ones who have itching hears to heap up for themselves teachers", for they are the very ones referred to in 2 Tim. 4:3-4.

DA 587: "The prophets of god were hated by apostate Israel because THROUGH THEM THEIR HIDDEN SINS WERE BROUGHT TO LIGHT."


Any Adventist who has been associated with the Advent Message any length of time realizes that the Elijah message is SUPPOSED TO BE for the professed people of God within "the church". We would expect, therefore, that these messages of reproof would be directed at all of us who claim to be Seventh-day Adventists.


Most, however, also believe that it is wrong to include the sins of the Conference Leadership in this reform and straight talk. But where did we get this idea? Was it not from the leaders who don't wish to be exposed? In the life of Elijah you certainly don't see him excluding the apostate leaders of his day!


When John the Baptist came, he did so in the power and spirit of Elijah. This is a basic truth that almost everyone would readily admit. But who did John the Baptist have trouble with most? Who did he immediately expose when the opportunity arose in his day? Did Jesus reprimand him for this work? Who was he speaking to when he said, "O generation of vipers?" It will do well to consider the text:


Matthew 3:7-10: "But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees (Conference Leaders) come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come? Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance: And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: (the "church or conference is going through") for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham. And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire."


So here we have it from God's own Word. This exposure of the apostate Conference Leaders was THE very work of Elijah the prophet, and we read in the very next lines of Desire of Ages (p. 587-8) why Elijah and all who do the work of Elijah are hated by the apostate Conference Leaders.





DA 601 "The priests and rulers had listened in silence to Christ's pointed rebukes. They could not refute His charges. But they were only the more determined to entrap Him, and with this object they sent to Him spies,..."


We see this kind of behavior in our present day. These priests and rulers weren't interested in the truth, they were interested in entrapping Jesus. You will notice that they could not refute His charges and that these charges were pointed. For many years the evidence has been continuing to pile up against the corrupt priesthood of our day and yet they can not and will not refute the charges with a "thus saith the Lord" for in the attempt, they would only expose themselves all the more.
