Truth and fear.
"We must evaluate every assertion from any source in light of the Bible. Whether it comes from an Adventist source or not is beside the point. Otherwise, some, in trying to defend the purity of the church, focus on the “who” or “where” and may discredit Paul because he studied at the feet of Gamaliel and quoted pagan prophets (Titus 1:12), Solomon because he quoted the saying of a non-Israelite woman (Prov. 31:1), Judas because he made reference to pseudepigraphic writings (Jude 9, 14), or Ellen G. White because she read and used writings of non-Adventist theologians."
