failed: as if the salvation of all must of necessity be the purpose of the ages. When he
has sufficiently played upon the sentiments of his dupes, he brings forward his second
line of attack, "Ye shall not surely die", by bluntly denying the completeness of the
revelation concerning the second death, and by wresting from I Cor. 15: teaching
specially written to enlighten the Corinthians concerning the death brought in by Adam.
What Scripture says concerning the wheat, Satan misapplies to the tares. Eve was
deceived, and she has many followers. She thought that Cain, who was of that wicked

as the true Christ.
We have never felt called upon to undertake a campaign, nor to attack all the false
teaching that is springing up around us, but we do feel it incumbent upon us to call upon
those who have perceived the truth of the mystery, not to allow this specious lie to spoil
their witness. It is with great reluctance that we have publicly to make known that in
loyalty to the Lord, His work and His word, it is impossible for us to be associated in
ministry with any who advocate this lie concerning the second death, known as
"Universal reconciliation". Reconciliation, redemption, resurrection and restoration
pertain to the true seed, and not to the seed of the wicked one, which seed is set forth in
Scripture under the types of Cain, the giants, the Canaanites, and the tares, and summed
up in the last dread statement, "whose names were not written in the book of life".
