While it seems to me that various individuals and groups have seen
something that is relevant that has been ignored or lost, the tendency is
then to go overboard on that one thing. One sees it in White's Adventism,
McPherson's pentecostalism, etc. There are those that go further and
develop full-fledged heresies. The individual drawing apart is
unfortunately likely to fit II Peter 3:16.
