Chapter 6 - The Third Angel’s Message in Verity

A serious question arose in the minds of some who heard the message of Righteousness by Faith presented at the Minneapolis Conference, as to the relation that message bore to the third angel’s message. In their perplexity, a number wrote to Mrs. E. G. White for an expression of her views on this question. COR 64.1

Regarding this inquiry and her reply, we have her published statement, as follows: COR 64.2

“Several have written to me, inquiring if the message of justification by faith is the third angel’s message, and I have answered, ‘It is the third angel’s message in verity.’”-The Review and Herald, April 1, 1890. COR 64.3

There is more in this statement than a brief, clear, positive answer to a question. It has a deep, vital meaning. It sounds a serious warning, and makes an intelligent, earnest appeal to every believer in the third angel’s message. Let us give the statement careful study. COR 64.4

Justification by faith, it is affirmed, is “the third angel’s message in verity.” The words “in verity” mean, in fact, in reality, in very truth. That means that the message of justification by faith and the third angel’s message are the same in purpose, in scope, and in results. COR 64.5
