[Manna - June 2]
I am determined not to know anything among you, save Jesus Christ, and Him crucified. 1 Cor. 2:2
OUR observation of those consecrated ones who have permitted other themes than "this gospel" to engross time and attention leads us to advise such to be very jealous in husbanding time and talent for the ministry of the gospel, leaving all other subjects, however interesting, to others now, and to the future life for ourselves, when all knowledge shall be ours. Those who for any avoidable cause turn aside from the ministry of the true and only gospel, we have invariably observed, are quickly turned out of the way or greatly hindered in their course toward "the prize of our high calling." Z.'95-116 R1811:5
