Intro

This blog gains its name from the book Steele's Answers published in 1912. It began as an effort to blog through that book, posting each of the Questions and Answers in the book in the order in which they appeared. I began the project on Dec. 10, 2011. I completed it on July 11, 2015. Along the way, I began to also post snippets from Dr. Steele's other writings — and from some other holiness writers of his times. I still do that every once in a while.

Wait for the Spirit's Witness

QUESTION: Is it wise to advise seekers to profess the blessing of entire sanctification when they have not the Spirit's witness of the same?

ANSWER: It is not wise. It is an assumption akin to a presumption whereby many have been sorely perplexed and have given up in despair of ever finding this blessing. Bishop William Taylor calls it the devil's switch just before entering the depot of full salvation.
