Let the teachers of these youth take them away from the place where God has indicated by his judgments that they should not be. SpTB06 46.1

In the Battle Creek Sanitarium the nurses will be brought into close contact with men and women of the world, who are not inclined to piety or religion. The erection of large buildings in Battle Creek is not according to the light that for years the Lord has not been giving. For years God has shown me by revelation that it is a mistake to make SpTB06 46.3
