Alpha and Omega of Apostasy, The *19 left*

By Julius Gilbert White

“Be not deceived; many will depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils. We have now before us the alpha of this danger. The omega will be of a most startling nature,” Testimonies, Series B, No. 2, p. 16.

Understand the “alpha” apostasy of Ellen White’s day, and the teachings that began simply and in such small ways, but which would have changed the whole course of the Adventist Church, the end result being deified nature and minimized spiritual truth, including the sinner’s need for God. The result of the alpha of apostasy was a serious division in the church, and a separation of health work from spiritual work.

Ellen White wrote about another apostasy—the omega—that would come in the last days. As the human race is wont to do, when the pendulum swung from Dr. Kellog’s and others’ teachings that eliminated God by making nature into a god, it swung in the opposite direction of apostasy to repudiate any sacredness to God’s creation or the call to obey God’s laws of nature as they pertain to our health, stewardship, and relationship to God. The possibility of living a victorious life and being sanctified through the working of the Holy Spirit on the heart and soul is increasingly deemed not only impossible, but unnecessary.

In our churches today, we hear over and over a call to unity so that the Holy Spirit can bless us. But being united, or ceasing to oppose any and all programs and policies, is not true unity. True unity is becoming united in Christ—knowing and hearing His voice as He speaks to the remnant church through the Scriptures and Spirit of Prophecy. Obedience to the things that are important according to God is the true test of discipleship, not whether or not one approves and accepts every idea and teaching that seems good.

This booklet is must reading for all. You will find it very helpful in understanding our present situation in the church.
