      Latter SDA Writers ~

      Through the years some of these Bible-minded members would advance ideas which on more careful investigation had to be given up. This was unavoidable; but it was in a way helpful toward stimulating thought. Many times questions arose to which the Spirit of prophecy gave the answer. Some years back a few among us became deeply interested in Melchizedek. Certain members thought he was Christ; others claimed that he was a visitor from another world, the first one created there, as Adam was on this earth. There are those who are in danger of making minor matters look like leading doctrines. Concerning this question Mrs. White said: {1947 LHC, FSG 416.1}

      “It was Christ that spoke through Melchisedec, the priest of the most high God. Melchisedec was not Christ, but he was the voice of God in the world, the representative of the Father. And all through the generations of the past, Christ has spoken; Christ has led His people, and has been the light of the world. When God chose Abraham as a representative of His truth, He took him out of his country, and away from his kindred, and set him apart.” -Ibid., p. 97. {1947 LHC, FSG 416.2}

      This is but one illustration of many, many questions that are answered in the Spirit of prophecy writings, thus helping to preserve unity of faith in the remnant church. Both ministers and members will do well to bring their Bible questions to the Testimonies. {1947 LHC, FSG 416.3}
