// Just convince me from the bible she taught falsehood and then I will not believe she was a prophetess.

You really need to view the various prophecies she made that turned out to be false.

And as far as many of her writings are concerned, even some SDA researchers have concluded that she offered very little that was new and actually the thoughts came from the books in her library.

And of course, you still have that thing about eggs, butter, & meat being aphrodisiacs when eaten by children. Many of her views are viewed today as simply foolishness.

No thanks, she really was no taller than other Christians that were filled with Gods Spirit but Adventism has made her into some kind of leading prophetess.
---lee on 10/10/09


In the 19th Century the rules of copying was different. Many of the books Sister White supposidly plagerized from were books she suggested that other read and have in their homes. Nor a good idea if you are trying to steal to give out the sources you are stealing from.

She admitted that she would use others words in ceratain situations since they had a higher education then she had.

Prophets are to be tested on how true to the Bible they are. She uplifted JESUS as the only source of Grace and truth and held the Bible as the final authority in relgious matters. Just convince me from the bible she taught falsehood and then I will not believe she was a prophetess.

I became a SDA and a Christian based on what the Bible said.

Warwick -the difference between you and I is that I absolutely believe God's word, as we are commanded to do. You however, try to force unbiblical interpretations onto the Word of God as well as onto others.

Now where in Genesis does it tell us the duration of the creation 'days'? It just ain't there but you think it is.

And how do you know anything about the foundation of my spiritual house? Were you the Architect?

You should realize that you are not always correct on how you view others. Romans 14:4
---lee on 10/8/09


Thank you Warwick and Rod4him for the kind words I appreciate them.

Now Glenn Sister White was not perfect. She was a sinner. She writes about her struggles and how sometimes she succumbed to temptation. So telling me she was a sinner will not convince me she was not a prophet.

My Grandmother was a Free Methodist and she talked how when she was growing up any women who wore Jewelry would be put out of the church. It was a standard teaching among most churches then.

She also stated that she often used the words of others who wrote better then she did. Now you accuse her of adding and taking away from the word of GOD. It is often because we do not take away from the word of GOD we are opposed.
---Samuel on 10/8/09




Lee the difference between you and I is that I absolutely God's word, as we are commanded to do. You on the otherhand have a convenient faith built upon a mixture of man's opinions, and God's word. Your house is on sand, mine is on rock.

Jesus believed the creation days were 24hrs but you know He also is wrong.

You would have us believe God did not tell the Israelites to work 6-ordinary 24hr days and rest the 7th ordinary 24hr day! So now they have 9 commandments. Lee has spoken.

Isaiah 3:12.
Ellen G. White gave false prophecies: "I was shown the company present at the conference. Said the angel: 'Some food for worms, some subjects of the seven last plagues, some will be alive and remain upon the earth to be translated at the coming of Jesus." Testimonies For The Church, vol. I, pp. 131-32 1856. She preached vegetarianism and forbade the use of jewelry, yet ate meat and wore jewelry. Most of her writings, and many of her "visions" were plagiarisms, yet she said that her "views were written independent of books or of the opinions of others." Manuscript 7, 1867. She violated these scriptures, Deuteronomy 4:2, Proverbs 30:5-6, Revelations 22:18-19.
---Glenn on 10/7/09


Warwick >>You are in double trouble. You have accepted the nonBiblical 'scientific' opinions of men.

It is NOT a scientific opinion the Genesis record does NOT mention the duration of the first 3 days of creation. Anyone that can read should see that.

>>Secondly you are in trouble as your view undermines Scripture, including the gospel.

One does not undermine the gospel by revealing that the Genesis record does not reveal the duration of the creation days.

Your problem is much like that of the RCC in that you force your interpretation onto the Genesis record in support of your YEC theory.

I do not do that nor do I add to scripture things that are not there. I let the record state what it states.
---lee on 10/7/09


Lee I read Desire of Ages decades ago as a nonBeliever. It pointed to Jesus very clearly, and my need for His forgiveness. An instrument God used to open my mind. After I read it the SDA doctor who gave it to me shared his faith. Another instrument of God on my path to salvation. All this lead to me becoming Christian. Even though I am not SDA I suppose I have a soft spot for them, because of this.

Does it matter if White wrote it or composed it from others writings? Does is matter if Adam wrote Genesis, and Moses the editor? .

As Juliet said 'What's in a name? That which we call a rose bBy any other name would smell as sweet.' Romeo and Juliet II,ii,1-2.

You strain gnats from your wine and swallow camels?
---Warwick on 10/7/09


Lee, Scripture says God created in 6-days, defining what 'a day'-Genesis 1:3-5.

Conversely you have unwittingly accepted a nonBiblical view of origins and reinterpret/ignore inconvenient Scriptures.

You are in the same dilemma the RCC church was in regard to Galileo Galilei. It had accepted the Aristotelian geocentric 'scienctific' view. Like yours, not a Scriptural view. Galileo contradicted them and they were in trouble.

You are in double trouble. You have accepted the nonBiblical 'scientific' opinions of men. What will you do when they change their minds?.

Secondly you are in trouble as your view undermines Scripture, including the gospel.

Opinions are worth little, God's word is worth everything.
---Warwick on 10/7/09




In a bit of defense for the accusations of Ellen White's plagiarism, when she wrote, it wasn't quite the same as our custom's today. College's today have very specific proceedure's to follow, even when getting an idea from someone else. That was not true in her day.

However, she still claimed that these writings from others, which became hers, were visionary. So, the logic would be that other people's writings became, "thus saith the Lord" when she determined it.

Although I believe some of SDA's teaching's are deviant, is that reason not to have fellowship with them?
---Rod4Him on 10/7/09


Well first we had people telling us Mrs. White was so intellegent that she invented our doctrine. This ignores the History of our church. It is like saying Luther invented the doctrines of the Luthern Church. Would you like me to list how our Doctrines find their roots in Methodism, Luthern, Conditonalism and Baptist.

Now they suggest she was so brain damaged she could not write. True much of Desire of Ages is not new. After all it is based on the Bible. Yes others have had some of the same insights. Yet the Barna Research group stated it is book respected and read my large numbers of ministers in various denominations. Lastly if you choose to read the Bible above her books. She would say to you good. That is the best of all books.
---Samuel on 10/7/09


//Read the Desire of Ages then tell me she has nothing to teach you.

The studies done by Adventists on the Desire of the Ages question whether White really wrote the material or simply borrowed what she read from other works.

And researchers have found nothing original in DofA. So why waste the time?
---lee on 10/7/09


I am in agreement with this statement made by Lee,"As with any deviant group that claims to be Christian, one will find a mixture of truth and falsehoods. That is the problem with Adventism as I see it."
---mima on 10/7/09


Warwick//That is quite ironic, coming from you.

What is 'ironic' is that I believe what the Biblical records state, apparently you do not but insist upon the extra-biblical belief that God created the world in 6 literal 24 hour days.

All you need to do is to point to at least one scripture that states the duration of the creation days but you will not and cannot. That much is just too easy to see.

What you have unwittingly done is to sanctify your belief in the YEC theory and then imposed it upon scripture. You should not do that.
---lee on 10/7/09


Lee you wrote 'As with any deviant group that claims to be Christian, one will find a mixture of truth and falsehoods. That is the problem with Adventism as I see it.'

That is quite ironic, coming from you.

The head injury that Ellen had as a child appears to have damaged her fronal lobe. Her "visions," which I think she had hundreds, seem to be from seizures as a result of the damage.

Ellen was brought us under the Millerite movement which would explain her pre-occupation with the 1844 Great Disappointment. Most people understood the failure of the prediction. She said God purposely disappointed people to find the true believers.

I really don't have time to read her stuff, the Bible keeps me busy. What does she have to offer the Bible doesn't?
---Rod4Him on 10/6/09


Dear Rod4him

Since when does a head injury prohibit a person from being a prophet? When did prophets get to be perfect and never make mistakes? Sister White was a teenager during the Millerite movement and did not recieve a vision until it was over.

Sister White lifts up JESUS. Read the Desire of Ages then tell me she has nothing to teach you.
---Samuel on 10/6/09


As with any deviant group that claims to be Christian, one will find a mixture of truth and falsehoods. That is the problem with Adventism as I see it.

The truth comes from the plagiarizing the works of others and the falsehoods come from what the angelic messenger (spirit guide) told White in her visions.

And Adventism does claim to have received special status and revelations not seen anywhere in the history of the church.
---lee on 10/6/09


contd.

Ellen G White a prophet. Sorry, I have researched, and she comes out wanting, head injury, followed Millerites 1844 Great Disappointment, so she switched it, and more stuff.

However, I will assume for a moment that she was a prophet, now what?, how does that change my faith and walk with Christ? As far as I know, she has nothing to contribute to my walk with Christ, except perhaps to cause divisions within Christendom, her way or no way.

That's not to say SDA are not saved, although, perhaps distracted from focusing and centering on Christ because of wasting time reading and believing EGW's stuff.

While the doctrine has its roots in scripture, the rule of interpretation lies with Ellen White.

The Mormon will tell us that they beleive in the Bible in so far as it is interpreted correctly. The same concept is employed in Adventism in the teachings of Ellen White.
lee

That would be a neat trick since the major doctrine of the SDA church were taught by other churches before the 1800's. How did those churches in the past teach doctrines based on Sister White when she had not been born yet.

I have had long discussions with the LDS. They place their prophet above the Bible and do interpret through him. Give an exmaple of exasctly where we do this.

Re: Ellen White/Spirit of Prophecy: Dont automatically despise prophets or their prophecies but test them (1 Thessalonians 5:20, 21). The Bible gives several tests Isaiah 8:20, Matthew 7:20, 1 John 4:2, Jeremiah 2:9. I believe (and our church as a whole) that Mrs. White has passed these tests.

Re: Stewardship well, we (like other Christian denominations Im sure, but dont really know official positions) believe that God wants us to return a tithe to Him (Malachi 3:7-10). And we believe that our commission (Matthew 28:18-20) calls us to spread the good news around the world (that takes money). :) But its more than money! We also believe that God has blessed us with talents that He wants us to use to spread the gospel while serving our brothers and sisters. (Matthew 24:46)

Re: Christs ministry in heavenly sanctuary starting in 1844: ok! As much as Id like to put this in a nutshell, I dont think I can!

Joy, I did as you suggested.

God's vision for you is life as He lives it! God loves you, and wants to give you the highest quality of life imaginable. Where's this in scripture?

18.Gift of Prophecy:
This gift is an identifying mark and was manifested in the ministry of Ellen. G. White . As the Lord's messenger, her writings are a continuing and authoritative source of truth .

21. Stewardship. We acknowledge God's ownership by faithful service to Him and our fellow men, and by returning tithes and giving offerings for the proclamation of His gospel and the support and growth of His church

24. Christ's Ministry in the Heavenly Sanctuary starting in 1844

These are a few challenge's to SDA overall beliefs.

Samuel, you say that ..."we get our doctrine from the Bible and not from her", and "we do not base our Doctrine on the writing of Ellen G. White if we did then we would not be following her teachings". This is like saying Judaism is based on the Old Testament, without mentioning it is filtered through the Talmud, or Islam has nothing to do with Muhammad, or Mormonism is free of the influence of Joseph Smith.

//ellen White was a prophet like all other prophets that have come out with their own theologies...

And even Samuel will tell us that she was a true prophetess of God.

In a conference held at Battle Creek, MI in May 1856 Ellen declared that some of those at the meeting would become 'food for worms" and that some of them would live on and become 'subjects of the 7 last plagues' while others would 'remain upon the earth and be translated at the coming of Jesus'.

Samuel may wish to verify either that she was wrong or there are some of those dudes still walking around among us after 153 years.

Hi everybody :)

I am a Seventh-day Adventist Christian and we believe a lot of things. Our major belief that encompasses all the rest is: Jesus came to earth and died for our sins and because of His gift anyone who accepts Him can have eternal life!!! (So exciting!)

Or will only those that have achieved perfection be judged to merit eternal life?

First I am a Seventh day Adventist and thank you LDS for commenting that you should ask us what we believe.

First SdA do believe in soul sleep. The Doctrine is called Conditionalism. We do not see where the Bible teaches the wicked are promised eternal life. That leads to the understanding the lake of fire will destroy all the wicked and that includes hades. So no we do not believe in an eternal hell.

Most SDA believe Sister White was a prophet but not all. But since we get our doctrine from the Bible and not from her that is fine. Sunday is not the mark of the Beast at this time. We have 28 fundamental beliefs which are listed on our website. Many here are lying about what we teach.
---Samuel on 10/2/09


We believe that Christians should keep the Ten commandments which has been a teaching of Christians for generations. We do not base our Doctrine on the writing of Elen G. White if we did then we would not be following her teachings. She stated that the Bible is the only respository of truth by which everything and everyone will be judged. Over and over she pointed to the Bible and said read it.

She also pointed to JESUS as the only source of salvation. Grace alone is what she stated over and over. Love of GOD alone leads to wanting to please GOD.
---Samuel on 10/2/09


Trey, the answer is yes to the three questions. Their doctrine does come from Ellen White. They are followers of the law when it comes to the Sabbath, but not the other laws. The answer is in their answers on the subject of the Saturday Sabbath.
---Bobby1 on 10/1/09


The bottom line is that if you want to know what SDA believe (and any other religion as well) - ask a member of that faith. These blogs are filled with people who claim to know what others believe but base their knowledge on what they've heard - not what they know. Heresay is not truth.

Seventh Day Adventists do not only depend on Gods grace, his righteousness, and the salvation that was provided by the Lords atoning death on the cross. That is why they use the term imparted righteousness in place of imputed righteousness. They have a type of salvation by works, and Ellen G. White said 'one will not be forgiven till all sins are eradicated from one's life and one's character is perfected.' This is antithetical to grace through faith only. Those Who are seeking to be justified by law will not be declared righteous.

The Ten Virgin prophecy and all of the points found with the 7 "churches" found in Rev. 3 and 2, make it very clear that the SDA church is NOW a cult.

One very clear indication a group is a cult is their claim to exclusiveness - we are the only ones God favors & has given the truth to.

2 Tim.4:3 For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions,...

The Ten Virgin prophecy and all of the points found with the 7 "churchs" found in Rev. 3 and 2, make it very clear that the SDA church is NOW the Kingdom of Heaven. They are now sleeping and don't even know it. Want proof? Read "THE SPIRIT OF THE CHURCH" by Neufeld and Sterling.

You can not go to a cult and expect them to tell you the truth.
The mormons teach their missionaries to lie, the SDAs are deceptive, the JWs just twist scripture. If your not a theologian DO NOT GO TO A CULT for truth.
They do not have or know the truth or they wouldn't be in the Cult!!!!

Continued...
Seventh-day Adventist's believe in the gifts of the Spirit including the gift of prophecy, which must be in accord with scripture.
They believe in the judgement and the soon coming of Jesus.
They beleive that a Christian does not take that name in vain but lives a life worthy of that name.
They believe that we are justified by Grace and empowered by that same Grace to live according to ALL of God's law.

2 Chr. 20:20 And they rose early in the morning, and went forth into the wilderness of Tekoa: and as they went forth, Jehoshaphat stood and said, Hear me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, Believe in the LORD your God, so shall ye be established, believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper.

Just a thought. I know little of Adventist theology, but if I wanted to learn about them I would not go to a Baptist, nor a hindu, nor a shinto, nor a born again fundamentalist, nor an atheist, nor a Catholic, nor a member of my religion, I would go to a member of the Adventist religion.

Well Trey, I hope you're not looking for pat answers. Factual responses can be lengthy, but to be direct:

What do the Seventh Day Adventist believe? Jesus & the Bible
What is their doctrine? I suggest researching the official Adventist org site (not critics)
Do they all believe in Ellen White? They believe IN Jesus & 2 Chr 20:20
Do they all believe in soul sleeping? Yes
Do they believe in an eternal hell? No, neither does the Bible teach that term
