"At the time when the danger and depression of the church are greatest, the little company [numbered a part of the 144,000] who are standing in the light will be sighing and crying for the abominations that are done in the land. But more especially will their prayers arise in behalf of the church because ITS MEMBERS are doing after the manner of the world. . . . 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" -Testimonies, vol. 5, pp. 209-210.
