Does the Society/Prophet claim any special knowledge concerning the Bible?

Yes. The Society published a six-volume work entitled Scripture Studies which it described as “the Bible in an arranged form.” It amounted to a running commentary on the Bible. The Society claims that if someone were to “ignore” the Scripture Studies “and goes to the Bible alone, though he has understood his Bible for ten years…within two years he goes into darkness.” The Society further claims that if a student “had merely read Scripture Studies with their references, and had not read a page of the Bible, as such, he would be in the light at the end of the two years, because he would have the light of the Scriptures.”
