“Ellen white makes two balancing statements which can help us stay in focus. She talks about the dangers of people simply depending on pastors and professors of theology as their guides: ‘Satan is constantly endeavoring to attract attention to men in the place of God. He leads the people to look to bishops, to pastors, to professors of theology, as their guides, instead of searching the Scriptures to learn their duty for themselves. Then, by controlling the minds of these leaders, he can influence the multitudes according to his will.’ (GC 595)

Therefore she admonishes: ‘It is the first and highest duty of every rational being to learn from the Scriptures what is truth, and then to walk in the light and encourage others to follow his example. We should day by day study the Bible diligently.’ (Ibid 598)

So even if world renowned scholars make claims contrary to Scripture; even if family- life specialists recommend ‘double protection to avoid pregnancy;’ and even if the theologians claim that it is right to lie to save life, the genuine, Bible- believing Adventist will say, ‘ I have heard what you have said. Now I will go to the Bible itself to see whether these things are correct. I will be faithful to the Divine counsel, living by faith in the Father, not by fear of the future.”
(Ron du Preez, No Fear for the Future, 197)
