Quotations from the writings of Ellen G. White on the topic of . . .
 secret  societies

The world is a theater; the actors, its inhabitants, are preparing to act their part in the last great drama. With the great masses of mankind, there is no unity, except as men confederate to accomplish their selfish purposes. God is looking on. His purposes in regard to His rebellious subjects will be fulfilled. The world has not been given into the hands of men, though God is permitting the elements of confusion and disorder to bear sway for a season. A power from beneath is working to bring about the last great scenes in the drama, -- Satan coming as Christ, and working with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in those who are binding themselves together in secret societies. Those who are yielding to the passion for confederation are working out the plans of the enemy. The cause will be followed by the effect.-- Testimonies, vol. 8, pp. 27, 28.  {ChS 50.1}

"We are now to use all our entrusted capabilities in giving the last warning message to the world. In this work we are to preserve our individuality. We are not to unite with secret societies or with trades unions. We are to stand free in God, looking constantly to Christ for instruction. All our movements are to be made with a realization of the importance of the work to be accomplished for God.-- Testimonies for the Church, vol. 7, p. 84 (1902).

Chap. 13 - Should Christians Be Members of Secret Societies?

     Early in her sojourn in Australia (1891 - 1900) Ellem White was called upon to give counsel to a prominent worker in our publishing house who had become deeply involved in the activities of the Masonic Lodge. The counsel she presented to this brother led him to sever his connections with the lodge in spite of the fact that he had attained the highest degree of honor in the organization.  {2SM 120.1}
     . . . In later years, he testified that the spirit of prophecy message completely changed his life.  {2SM 120.2}  At this time and in this connection, Mrs. White wrote quite fully concerning the relationship of Seventh-day Adventists to such organizations.  THIS WAS PUBLISHED UNDER THE TITLE "SHOULD CHRISTIANS BE MEMBERS OF SECRET SOCIETIES?" In pamphlet form, it had a wide circulation in Australia and in the United States, but it has long been out of print.   Selected Messages, Book 2, Chapter 13, page 120 - 140
