PROPHECY: Paulus and the great apostasy

Ellen White writes in the Great Controversy:

The very beginning of the great apostasy was in seeking to supplement the authority of God by that of the church. Rome began by enjoining what God had not forbidden, and she ended by forbidding what He had explicitly enjoined.

Ellen White: The Grat Controversy; second paragraph in the chapter “The Pilgrim Fathers”

Dansk oversættelse:

Det store frafald begyndte jo netop ved, at man havde forsøgt at supplere Guds autoritet med kirkens. Romerkirken begyndte med at påbyde det, som Gud ikke havde påbudt, og endte med at forbyde det, som Gud udtrykkeligt havde påbudt.

Ellen White: Den Store Strid; paragraf 2 i kapitlet “Pilgrimsfædrene”
