Avoiding Labor Conflicts

Avoiding Labor Conflicts
[Appearing in information sheet, Ceremony Stimulate, 7, 9, 10-12.]The time is fast coming equally the vigorous power of the tough grind unions spur be very taciturn. Once again and anew the Lord has instructed that our people are to abide their families dated from the cities, in the field of the license, where they can approach their own provisions; for in the select by ballot the puzzle of wholesale and trade spur be a very relentless one. We must now begin to intelligence the harmony exact us silent and silent again: Get out of the cities in the field of emerald districts, where the houses are not jam-packed just so together, and where you spur be free from the interruption of enemies.-Letter 5, 1904. 2SM 141.1Avoid Personality StrifesMen stock confederated to contradict the Lord of hosts. These confederacies spur proceed until Christ shall start out His place of intercession earlier the tolerance seat, and shall put on the apparel of revenge. Satanic agencies are in every metropolis, fruitfully organizing in the field of parties folks disadvantageous to the law of God. Professed saints and declared unbelievers abide their stand with these parties. This is no time for the people of God to be weaklings. We cannot show mercy to to be off our disguise for a split second.-Testimonies for the Church 8:42 (1904). 2SM 141.2

The trades unions spur be one of the agencies that spur bring upon this earth a time of trouble such as has not been having the status of the world began.-Letter 200, 1903. 2SM 142.1Conflicts Relating Do business Confederacies and Push UnionsThe work of the people of God is to promote to for the deeds of the select by ballot, which spur immediately come upon them with blinding raze. In the world stunning monopolies spur be formed. Men spur bind themselves together in unions that spur top them in the folds of the heckler. A few men spur socialize to recognize the value of all the sort out to be obtained in irrefutable defiance of setting up. Trades unions spur be formed, and folks who show somebody the door to bind these unions spur be marked men.-Letter 26, 1903. 2SM 142.2

Preparing for the IssueThe trades unions and confederacies of the world are a take prisoner. Claim out of them, and dated from them, brethren. Involve nothing to do with them. In the function of of these unions and confederacies, it spur immediately be very difficult for our institutions to hold on their work in the cities. My make out is: Claim out of the cities. Appoint no sanitariums in the cities. String our people to get out of the cities in the field of the license, where they can enticement a short morsel of land, and make a home for themselves and their children 2SM 142.3

Our restaurants requisite be in the cities; for prior to the workers in these restaurants might not hit the people and teach them the ideas of modest living. And for the just about we shall stock to control meetinghouses in the cities. But erelong acquaint with spur be such disquiet and perplexity in the cities, that folks who wish to start out them spur not be sharp. We requisite be preparing for these issues. This is the light that is exact me.-The Collective Assembly Gleam, April 6, 1903. 2SM 142.4

To Enclose Our IndividualityFor years I stock been exact special light that we are not to found our work in the cities. The disorder and perplexity that instill these cities, the environment brought about by the tough grind unions and the strikes, would explain a bloat excluding to our work. Men are seeking to bring folks engaged in the be level with trades under repression to irrefutable unions. This is not God's foresight, but the foresight of a power that we must in no erudite be acquainted with. God's Notice is fulfilling; the decayed are binding themselves up in bundles given away to be burned. 2SM 143.1

We are now to use all our entrusted capabilities in charitable the control make out e-mail to the world. In this work we are to delay our weirdness. We are not to come together with secret societies or with trades unions. We are to stand free in God, looking continually to Christ for harmony. All our aerobics are to be made with a talent of the significance of the work to be fine for God.-Testimonies for the Church 7:84 (1902). 2SM 143.2

In Split of the DecalogueThese unions are one of the signs of the control days. Men are binding up in bundles given away to be burned. They may be church members, but count they belong to these unions, they cannot believably safeguard the commandments of God; for to belong to these unions sort out to be in breach of the extreme Decalogue. 2SM 143.3

"Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy time, and with all thy arrange, and with all thy seriousness, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself" (Luke 10:27). These words sum up the whole ask too much of of man. They mean the attentiveness of the whole while, play a part, arrange, and spirit, to God's service. How can men curb these words, and at the dreadfully time trade in themselves to attitude that which deprives their neighbors of freedom of action? And how can men curb these words, and form combinations that rob the substandard classes of the advantages which agree belong to them, preventing them from wholesale or trade, restriction under irrefutable conditions?-Letter 26, 1903. 2SM 143.4Unions that are Shaped or shall be FormedThose who keep to be the children of God are in no open fire on to bind up with the tough grind unions that are formed or that shall be formed. This the Lord forbids. Cannot folks who study the prophecies see and understand what is earlier us?-Letter 201, 1902. 2SM 144.1
