2. The Holy Spirit never has, and never will in the future, divorce the medical missionary work from the gospel ministry. They cannot be divorced. Bound up with Jesus Christ, the ministry of the word and the healing of the sick are one. Series B, No. 7, page 64. PH137 4.2

3. Seventh-day Adventists are to be represented to the world by the advanced principles of health reform which God has given us. PH137 4.3
