We bear false witness when we add a little to our brother's words, and give them a false coloring; and in the sight of God we are not doers, but transgressors of the law. We are not on the Lord's side; we are on the side of him who hurts, destroys, and tears down the cause of truth. We should pray for one another, instead of drawing apart.  {RH, August 27, 1889 par. 6}





Ron responds:


The leaders of new movement Adventism should have never should have born false witness by tearing down pillar doctrines to teach Babylon’s antichrist doctrine on the human nature of Christ. We cannot unify with antichrist and another false gospel being admixed to the true one. It is not tearing down the cause of truth to unmask the tearing down of truth!


It is tearing down the cause of truth when we defend a new movement that has removed pillar doctrines and God. Ellen White said “...nothing would be allowed to stand in the way of the New Movement.” That would include prayer. She said the apostasy of the omega would wax stronger until the end. This condition prevents unifying with those in gross apostasy. That is why we did not unify with the other fallen churches.

"Christ calls for unity.  But He does not call for us to unify on wrong practices.  The God of heaven draws a sharp contrast between pure, elevating, ennobling truth and false, misleading doctrines." 1SM 175.

"Sins exist in the church that God hates, but they are scarcely touched for fear of making enemies.  Opposition has risen in the church to the plain testimony. Some will not bear it.  They wish smooth things spoken unto them.  And if the wrongs of individuals are touched, they complain of severity, and sympathize with those in the wrong." SG vol 2, 283.

"God calls for men of decided fidelity.  He has no use in an emergency for two-sided men.  He wants man who will lay their hand upon a wrong work and say, 'This is not according to the will of God.'" 2SM 152, 153.

"Jesus prayed that his followers might be one; but we are not to sacrifice the truth in order to secure this union, for we are to be sanctified through the truth....  Men would try to effect unity through concession to popular opinion, through compromise with the world, a sacrifice of vital godliness.  But truth is God's basis for the unity of his people." 2RH 560.

"To secure peace and unity they were ready to make any concession consistent with fidelity to God but they felt that even peace would be too dearly purchased at the sacrifice of principle. If unity could be secured only by the compromise of truth and righteousness, then let there be difference, and even war" (Great Controversy, p. 45).


"While others try to throw a cloak over the existing evil, and excuse the great wickedness everywhere prevalent, those who have a zeal for God's honor and a love for souls will not hold their peace to obtain favor of any. Their righteous souls are vexed day by day with the unholy works and conversation of the unrighteous. They are powerless to stop the rushing torrent of iniquity, and hence they are filled with grief and alarm. They mourn before God to see religion despised in the very homes of those who have had great light. They lament and afflict their souls because pride, avarice, selfishness, and deception of almost every kind are in the church. The Spirit of God, which prompts to reproof, is trampled underfoot, while the servants of Satan triumph. God is dishonored, the truth made of none effect" (Testimonies, Vol. 5, pp. 210, 211).


"The same disobedience and failure which were seen in the Jewish church have characterized in a greater degree the people who have had this great light from heaven in the last messages of warning" (Testimonies, Vol. 5, p. 456).


"Confederacies will increase in number and power as we draw nearer to the end of time. These confederacies will create opposing influences to the truth, forming new parties of professed believers who will act out their own delusive theories. The apostasy will increase. 'Some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils.' Men and women have confederated to oppose the Lord God of heaven, and the church is only half awake to the situation. There needs to be much more prayer, much more of earnest effort, among professed believers." --Review and Herald, Aug. 5, 1909, (Evangelism p. 363)


We cannot unite with the openly corrupt and mature as wheat or as the Zion bride of Jesus, because she is not defiled with women or fallen, corrupt, antichrist churches, Rev. 14:1-4.


Ellen White hinted as to the cause for another coming out.


Another Coming Out: "As reformers they had come out of the denominational churches, but they now act a part similar to that which the churches acted. We hoped that there would not be the necessity for another coming out." Ellen G. White, The Ellen G. White 1888 Materials, Vol. 1, p. 356-7.


“There was a coming out, a decided separation from the wicked, an escape for life. So it was in the days of Noah; so with Lot; so with the disciples prior to the destruction of Jerusalem; and so it will be in the last days. Again the voice of God is heard in a message of warning, bidding His people separate themselves from the prevailing iniquity.”—Patriarchs and Prophets, 166. 


When the church not only acts a part similar to that which the other churches are acting, but actually forms liaisons with them which result in embracing their antichrist doctrines (eg. Nature of Christ), and thus forms an Omega of Apostasy New Movement, that we were never to join, (1SM 204-5), the gloves are off. Then there is the necessity for another coming out.
