The 1888 Confrontation

Bitter opposition leads to a closer look at justification by faith

Some people viewed the 1888 General Conference session as a disaster because of the confrontation that took place. However, others saw it as a good session because the Church began placing more emphasis on justification by faith in the righteousness of Christ.

Although the contention continued for a few years after the session, the leaders who opposed the change in emphasis finally admitted their mistaken position and apologized to Ellen White for their stubbornness and ill feelings.
