Doctrine  of  Holy  Flesh

{A fanatical teaching termed by its advocates "THE DOCTRINE OF HOLY FLESH" was started in 1900 in INDIANA, carrying away the Conference President and verious workers. Claiming that when Christ passed through the agony of GETHSEMANE he obtained HOLY FLESH such as Adam possessed before his fall. This theory alleged that those who follow the Saviour must also acquire the same state of physical sinlessness as an essential preparation for translation.  Eyewitness accounts report that in their services the fanatics worked up a high pitch of excitement by use of musical instruments such as organs, flutes, fiddles, tambourinesm horns and even a big bass drum. They sought a physical demonstration and shouted and prayed and sang until someone in the congregation would fall, prostrate and unconscious, from his seat. One or two men, walking up and down the asile for the purpose, would drag the fallen person up on the rostrum. Then about a dozen individuals would gather around the body, some singing, some shouting, and some praying, all at the same time.  When the subject revived, he was counted among those who had passed through the GETHSEMANE experience, had obtained HOLY FLESH, and had translation faith. Thereafter, it was asserted, he could not sind and would never die.  ELDERS S. N. HASKELL and A. J. BREED, two of our leading denominational ministers, were sent to the CAMP MEETING held at MUNCIE, INDIANA, from September 13 to 23, 1900, to meet this famaticism. These developments were revealed to Ellen White while she was in AUSTRALIA in JANUARY, 1900, and she bore testimony of warning and reproof against it, as seen in the following two messages.} -- COMPILERS.  {2SM 31.1}
