"We can easily see a tremendous power of Satan leading among many lines, such as Higher Criticism, Christian Scientists, Mormonism, Adventism, etc., etc., toward the apostasy seen in the 'vine of the earth', in Rev. 14. … One of these lines is Ravenism." A.H. Rule

Yes, but he also wrote, "You refer to the work in the West Indies. I am thankful to be able to say that it still goes on with much encouragement. I probably mentioned to you that when we reached Barbados there was no meeting. Two sisters still held to divine principles. But God wrought in grace and filled our hearts with thankfulness and cheer. A number were delivered from Ravenism and several have been delivered from the Kelly position. And there were a good many conversions both of adults and children, and now there are 24 or 25 at the Lord’s table [!!]" (11 Jan 1905) 'Selected Ministry of A. H. Rule', vol.2, p.70
