    Making a Name

    It may seem strange at the present time to those unacquainted with the situation of our cause in 1860, that in the Review of March 22, appeared an article from a brother in the faith, much esteemed, in which he stated that what was desired by Elders White and Loughborough, was to “make a name so as to be like the nations” round them. Like the builders of the tower of Babel, he claimed that in the movement proposed for “legally holding church property” these brethren were going into Babylon, “uniting church and state,” etc.COOD 111.2

    In the next two numbers of the Review, Elder White fully answered the brother, showing that while it is wrong to resort to the civil arm to enforce the worship of God, “the Lord’s goods can be managed in this state of things only according to the laws of the country.” And it was “vain to talk of church property, if the church is not in a position to hold it legally.”COOD 111.3
