Intelectual Honesty First. Jun 6, 2009
After reading the review of the “educator from Adventism” I decided that there was a need for another clear perspective from another formally educated person from the SDA school system.
SDAs believe in the trinity, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, the three persons of the Godhead. But just because we believe them to be God doesn’t in any way preclude us from accepting the Bible, just because it was written by humans who were inspired by God to give us vital information which establishes our faith. The Bible writers were established as inspired by what they wrote and not by what others thought of them. By the same token we have established, by the same method of comparison, that Ellen White was also inspired. She, in turn, established that A.T. Jones, E.G. Waggoner, and W.W. Prescott also were inspired by the Holy Spirit. But even so, what they wrote, and what she wrote, all have to be in harmony with each other and with the writers of the New Testament, just as the New Testament had to be confirmed by the writings of the Old Testament. Nothing is to be accepted as inspired without being tested by the inspiration already available.
Since the subject of inspiration seemed to be the main point in question I will leave the rest of the fundamental beliefs to be studied and judged on their merits as determined by the inspiration of the Bible and the Holy Spirit, the author of all divinely inspired words.
He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
SDA beliefs reviewed Feb 15, 2008
This book is a "no nonsense" review of the beginnings and beliefs of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
HA HA Nov 3, 2007
Sometimes I have my doubts about the SDA church and I question about the people not the doctrines of the church. First of all SDA's is a recognized denomination like Baptist, Methodist, Catholics, and etc. Our world headquarters is in the Washington D.C. area so we are recognized by many political leaders and US Presidents. To give you a sign of relief we stay out of the political arena in Washington because we strongly believe in the separation of church and state.
Point B. Heaven will be a place for all people not for a specific religion because there are saints in all religions. Including non Christians, Jews, Catholics, Muslims, Atheists, or people who never heard the word Jesus. PERIOD!
C: Ellen White was a sweet lady who never put her writings above the Bible. Is the peoples fault who twist her writings and that is the main cause for some cultish SDA churches.
D: I was a Roman Catholic including my parents. If we never knew about the SDA church then our health would be different.
To uphold the U.S. Constitution I am not going to force anyone to accept the Sabbath day but here is a reason why I do in a non religious way. I am a college student and a small business owner. I have stress during the week. I just need one day to set aside everything and relax. Even when I graduate my workload is going to increase because I'll be a professional person. So hey I don't want any chronic diseases.
It's all about his saving grace. Aug 23, 2007
I have not had the opportunity to read the book but I was browsing this site and the title and reviews caught my eye. This does not in anyway describe the Adventist church that I have been apart of for 35 of my 39 years. I was educated in in Adventist schools and in my heart I do believe that the adventist church is the remnant church. We do not in any way, shape, or form acknowlege Ellen White over the awesome authority of Jesus christ. We do believe Ellen White to be a prophet, and is definitely inspired, key word, INSPIRED. Ellen White time and time again refers the reader to the holy sciptures. She does not by any means attempt to challenge or belittle the authority of Christ. Yes I do read the writings of Ellen White and I do believe she was a prophet of Christ, and the bible teaches us that we are saved by grace alone so that know man can boast! What an awesome God! In essence, know individual can work his way into heaven, including Ellen G. White. I believe all religious material should be prayfully approached so that the holy spirit can reveal the truth. Perhaps the writer needs to examine himself before writing on a subject that he clearly is clueless about.
Excellent Book Which Illuminates Feb 9, 2007
This is an excellent review of the beliefs of Seventh Day Adventism. From believing that Ellen Harmon White was a prophet, that Christ was Michael the Archangel(what a pernicious heresy!), to soul-sleep, the Sabbath, and the whole nine yards of Adventism, revealing it for what it is: a nineteenth century cult,based on works, with many beliefs coinciding with the Russellite movement=falsely prophecying dates for the end of the world, etc... A small, excellent work.
SDAs are not themselves false prophets, but . . . Sep 11, 2006
Having been a devout and believing SDA for the first 35 years of my life, having gone through 16 years of SDA education, and having been a genuinely sincere and earnest educator in the SDA college system, I feel that I can speak with a fair level of credibility about what Adventists believe.
Most practicing Adventists are so overwhelmed by their somewhat closed culture that they are not easily able see just how warped their thinking is. They are generally unable to recognize that theirs is a cult culture. If by the term "cult" one refers to a group (a) that filters all of its religious thinking through a single personality (Ellen White), and (b) that centers its faith around non-biblical doctrines (e.g., the elaborate SDA doctrine of the heavenly sanctuary), based on that personality's visions, then it's difficult to see how the SDA culture is anything other than a cult.
This doesn't make all Adventists false prophets, however, which is what the title of this book appears to insinuate. They are neither "false" nor "true" prophets; they are just true believers who (from my point of view) are frozen in a dead and discredited set of beliefs, that even during the nineteenth century were considered strange. To assume the legitimacy of the term "false prophet" presumes a set of beliefs I no longer find viable, but to the extent that the term has meaning for some, I think that E.G. White is a good candidate for being one. I think a more apt title for the book might have been Is Sister White a False Prophet?
I would be surprised if any non-SDA who reads about her life and her work as an SDA believes that she is a "true prophet" in the way that SDAs characterize her. However, the true believers inside the SDA fold appear to be completely unable to see her any other way.
