Front Cover
TEACH Services, Incorporated, 1997 - Religion - 368 pages
This book demonstrates that God's laws--as in the laws of any country--are the basis upon which all justice rests. In addition, the atonement of Christ does not conflict with the Ten Commandments or any other laws of God. This work is a critical and exhaustive treatise on the plan of salvation as revealed in the Scriptures, showing its harmony with the principles of justice and mercy, its consistency with reason, and its final results as affecting the destiny of the human race. By all who have faith in the power of the blood of Christ to clease from sin, the Atonementis considered to be the greeat central doctrine of the gospel. Many Christians, however, are asking if it is necessary to keep the Old Testament laws. J.H. Waggoner, in 1884, was concerned that Christians had deviated from the truth of the Atonement doctrine by not appealing to principles of reasonand law found in the Holy Scriptures. The Atonement of Christ never conflicts with the Commandments of God, and this book demonstrates that God's law - as in the laws of any country - is the basis upon which all justice rests.

About the author (1997)

J.H. Waggoner (1820-1889) was a publisher in a small town in Wisconsin when he accepted the Advent message. Two years later, in 1854, he became a minister. In 1875 he went to California with Elder and Mrs. White. He joined in evangelism with Elders JN Loughborough and DM Canright, and became the editor of the "Signs of the Times," a position which he held until 1887, when he went to Basel, Switzerland, to engage in publishing. He died there two years later. He was the first editor of the Adventist religious liberty journal, "The American Sentinel," begun in 1886. In addition to his ariticles for the "Signs" and other papers, Elder Waggoner wrote pamphlets on spiritism, the age-to-come, and the atonement. He expanded the last of these to a 400-page book. "From Eden to Eden" was completed just before his death.
