Healthful Living


Relation of Health Reform to the Present Closing Work

An Entering Wedge

128. This work we begin to comprehend better,—the light given years ago,—that health reform principles would be as an entering wedge to be followed by a religious influence. To voice the words of John, “Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world,”—Unpublished Testimonies, November 19, 1895. HL 36.1

129. In the time of confusion and trouble such as never was since there was a nation, the uplifted Saviour will be presented to the people in all lands and in all places, that all who look may live.—Special Testimonies—Relating to Various Matters in Battle Creek, 7. HL 36.2

130. The need of healthful habits is a part of the gospel which must be presented to the people by those who hold forth the word of life. Every minister should carefully consider what effect eating and drinking have upon the health of the soul. By precept and example, by a life of obedience to nature's laws, he can present the truth in a forcible manner.—Unpublished Testimonies, August 30, 1896. HL 36.3

131. Take the living principles of health reform into communities that to a large degree are ignorant of what they should do.—Special Testimonies, Series A 5:5. HL 36.4
