MR No. 332—Development of Dr. J. H. Kellogg's Pantheistic Views

Soon after Dr. Kellogg first connected with the sanitarium, I was shown that he was in danger of entertaining false views of God.

(To David Paulson, October 14, 1903.) 5MR 375.2

Before leaving Washington for Berrien Springs, I was instructed upon some points regarding the work at Battle Creek. In the night season I was in a large meeting.

One by my side told me that the evil angels had taken captive the mind of the speaker.... 5MR 375.3
