    Default Please, I need help with the meaning of these words...

    Hello everyone, I'm new and I wanted to know what NEW ISSUE FOLLY means.
    Can you please, native speakers, tell me what does it mean?
    The complete sentence was:
    NO ROOM HERE FOR NEW ISSUE FOLLY.

    Debora, I would need more context.

    I'm not sure how "issue" is being used in the sentence so I need to know more about the preceding sentences.

    "No room here for New Issue folly, which claims that the Father, Son and Holy Ghost are three manifestations of one divine Person, instead of three distinct Persons, each having a distinct office."

    It's from an old study book from the Bible, it was written in 1920 approx. Thank you so much for answering!

    "Issue" in this context might refer to "being born of". One of the definitions of issue is that of a noun meaning offspring, children, descendant, progeny...as in "died without issue" which means to have died without having produced children or offspring. I think the term is archaic.

    Again, I'm not sure, but maybe New Issue folly means an idea, lacking of good sense or normal prudence, that the Father, Son and Holy Ghost are progeny of one devine Person.

    This is the paragraph before "New Issue":

    "Let those who accuse us of teaching that there are two Gods, consider these words. "Therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee," and view it with - "Thy throne, O God, is forever and ever". Two divine Personalities are here named, and each called God, because Jesus Christ was Deity as well as humanity. No room here..."

    I didn't post it before because I thought it was irrelevant but now that I reread it again, I'm more inclined to your second answer, what do you think?
    Thank you again for helping me, I appreciate it a lot!

    Hi Debora

    I agree. I hope it is an accurate interpretation of what the writer intended. Good luck
