Seventh-day Adventist Church Found Wanting

“In the same hour came forth fingers of a man’s hand, and wrote over against the candlestick upon the
plaister of the wall [...] ‘TEKEL; Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting.’” (Dan 5:5, 27)

“The church cannot measure herself by the world, nor by the opinion of men, nor by what she once was. Her faith and her position in the world as they now are, must be compared with what they would have been if her course had been continually onward and upward. The church will be weighed in the balances of the sanctuary. If her moral character and spiritual state do not correspond with the benefits and blessings God has conferred upon her, she will be found wanting. The light has been shining clear and definite upon her pathway, and the light of 1882 calls her to an account. If her talents are unimproved, if her fruit is not perfect before God, if her light has become darkness, she is indeed found wanting.” [Ellen G. White, Testimony for the Battle Creek Church (1882), page 66]

“God means that testing truth shall be brought to the front and become a subject of examination and discussion, even if it is through the contempt placed upon it. The minds of the people must be agitated. Every controversy, every reproach, every slander, will be God’s means of provoking inquiry and awakening minds that otherwise would slumber.” [Ellen G. White, Testimonies for the Church Volume Five , page 453]

The Smoke of Her Burning

“And [the merchants] cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying,
‘What city is like unto this great city!’” (Revelation 18:18)

“We are in danger of becoming a sister to fallen Babylon, of allowing our churches to become corrupted, and filled with every foul spirit, a cage for every unclean and hateful bird; [Revelation 18:2 quoted] and will we be clear unless we make decided movements to cure the existing evil?” [Ellen G. White, Manuscript Releases Volume Twenty-one, page 380]

“And they said, ‘Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven;
and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.’” (Genesis 11:4)

“And [the beast] causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark
in their right hand, or in their foreheads; and that no man might buy or sell [i.e., trade],
save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” (Revelation 13:16, 17)

“If the church pursue a course similar to that of the world, they will share the same fate. Nay, rather, as they have received greater light, their punishment will be greater than that of the impenitent.” [Ellen G. White, Testimonies for the Church Volume Five , page 100]

“Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unjust,
and not before the saints?” (1 Corinthians 6:1)

“Take this case out of the lawyers’ hands. It seems awful to me to think that you will go directly contrary to the plain word of God, and will open to the world your cruel work against God’s commandment-keeping people. If this action of yours were to tell only against those who have done injustice, the harm would not be so far-reaching; but can you not see that it will arouse prejudice against God’s people as a body? Thus you will bruise and wound Christ in the person of His saints, and cause Satan to exult because through you he could work against God's people and against His institutions, doing them great harm.” [Ellen G. White, Selected Messages Book 3, page 305]

“The world and unconverted church members are in sympathy. Some when God reproves them for wanting their own way, make the world their confidence, and bring church matters before the world for decision. Then there is collision and strife, and Christ is crucified afresh, and put to open shame. Those church members who appeal to the courts of the world show that they have chosen the world as their judge, and their names are registered in heaven as one with unbelievers. How eagerly the world seizes the statements of those who betray sacred trusts!” [Ellen G. White, Selected Messages Book 3, pages 302, 303]
