Diary/Regarding Dr. J. H. Kellogg

St. Helena, California

January 5, 1902

Previously unpublished.

I am having things presented to me that worry my mind. Dr. Kellogg is traveling the same road that he did soon after taking up his responsibilities in the Sanitarium. Human science is a lie in regard to God not having a personality. I know this is a falsehood, and yet if we can in any way help the doctor we must try to do this. What can be said? There is such an exaltation given him that he is about to topple over the precipice. What can any of us do? The Lord alone can save Dr. Kellogg. His science of God in nature is true, but he has placed nature where God should be. Nature is not God, but God created nature. This science of God in nature is correct in one sense. God gives to nature its life, its living properties, its beauty. [He] is the author of all nature's loveliness, and while He gives us this evidence of mighty power, He is a personal God and Christ is a personal Saviour.

“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female.” Genesis 1:26, 27. Man was made last, that the human being could make no claim that he acted a part in the creation of the world or anything which hath the breath of life.

[Read] Job, chapters 38, 39, 40.

We take not the fallacies of man but the Word of God that man was created after the image of God and Christ, for the Word declares “God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, hath in these last days spoken unto us by his son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty of heaven.” Hebrews 1:1-3.
