2 Corinthians 3:17"Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty (freedom!)".

"Those who think that the church militant (501c3 laodicean, foolish virgin, stony ground hearers SDA theological tare bundle) is the church triumphant (144,000 literal number) make a GREAT mistake." E.G. White, The Upward Look, 152.

 "The members of the church triumphant--the church in heaven--will be permitted to draw near to the members of the church militant (501c3 Adventists)to aid them in their necessity." E. G. White, The Southern Watchman, Sep. 8, 1903.

abhor popery, and held that to remain at peace with Rome would be disloyalty to God. But how widely different are the sentiments now expressed
!" The Spirit of Prophecy, vol. 4, p. 380.1.

J. H. Merle D’Aubigne in his history of Protestantism says this: 

”Popery is the perversion of church authority into mental tyranny.”  

"Let not any living hand, of minister or layman, be laid upon you with the statement, "You cannot go here, you must not go there; we shall not support you if you do not go at our bidding; or if you do not give yourself to the work of bringing souls into the truth in some certain place designated by us." God will bless you as you continue to search for lost souls in out-of-the-way places" {PH113 14.2}.

"Shall the "regular lines", which say that every mind shall be controlled by two or three minds at Battle Creek, continue to bear sway? The Macedonian cry is coming from every quarter. Shall men go to the "regular lines" to see whether they will be permitted to labor, or shall they go out and work as best they can, depending on their own abilities and on the help of the Lord, beginning in a humble way and creating an interest in the truth in places in which nothing has been done to give the warning message?" {SpM 176.5}.

"WE WANT THE HOLY SPIRIT, WHICH IS JESUS CHRIST” {Lt66-1894 (April 10, 1894) par. 18} - EGW.

"Finite men should beware of seeking to control their fellow men, taking the place assigned to the Holy Spirit (invisible Spirit of Jesus, His Soul/Life). Let not men feel that it is their prerogative to give to the world what they suppose to be truth, and refuse that anything should be given contrary to their ideas. This is not their work. Many things will appear distinctly as truth, which will not be acceptable to those who think their own interpretations of the Scripture always right. Most decided changes will have to be made in regard to ideas which some have accepted as without a flaw. These men give evidence of fallibility in very many ways; they work upon principles which the word of God condemns" Lt 38, 1896 (May 30, 1896) par. 39Special Testimony to Battle Creek Church, p. 17.2 (Ellen G. White).

"Christ is to be known by the blessed name of Comforter” {Ms7-1902 (January 26, 1902) par. 10} - EGW.

"There are thousands today echoing the same rebellious complaint against God. They do not see that to deprive man of the freedom of choice would be to rob him of his prerogative as an intelligent being, and make him a mere automaton. It is not God's purpose to coerce the will.Man was created a free moral agent" Patriarchs and Prophets, p. 331.4 (Ellen G. White).

"Thus in every age, from the midst of apostasy and rebellion, God gathers out a People that are true to Him, -- a people “in whose heart (desires) is His law. Isaiah 51:7" Patriarchs and Prophets, p. 338.2 (Ellen G. White).
