Come Out

Because those in positions of responsibility have for years left the Southern field unworked, notwithstanding the most decided testimonies urging them to take up this work; because they continue to neglect this field and use every manner of device in trying to uproot the confidence of the people in those who have done the hardest and most self-sacrificing work in the South, I have but very little confidence that the Lord is giving these men in positions of responsibility spiritual eyesight and heavenly discernment. I am thrown into perplexity over their course; and I desire now to attend to my special work, TO HAVE NO PART IN THEIR COUNCILS, AND TO ATTEND NO CAMP MEETINGS NIGH OR AFAR OFF. My mind shall not be dragged into confusion by the tendency they manifest to work directly contrary to the light that God has given me. I AM DONE. I will preserve my God-given intelligence. {17MR 64.3}

My voice has been heard in the different conferences and at camp meetings. I must now make a change. I cannot enter the atmosphere of strife and then have to bear testimonies that cost me much more than those to whom they are sent can imagine. When I attend the different meetings, I am compelled to deal with men, standing in responsible places, who I know are not exerting an influence that God can endorse. And when I bear a testimony in reference to their course of action, advantage is taken of this testimony. These men have not clear understanding. Should I say the things that I know, they would not, with their present experience, use this instruction wisely, and would bring upon me inconceivable burdens. {17MR 64.4}

Take the young men and women, and place them where they will come as little in contact with our churches as possible, that the low grade of piety which is current in this day shall not leaven their ideas of what it means to be a Christian. {12MR 333.1}

I shall, therefore, leave them to receive word from the Bible, in which the principles upon which they should work are laid down in straight lines. {17MR 65.1}
