If you do not trust EGW writings you should not be an SDA  as the SDA church is founded on the Bible and on her prophecies and writings 

Greetings Elijah, 

Thank you for you comment made, it is not that I do not trust the writings of Ellen G. White but that I need to be clear on some of the things that she made mention of for example: “Let not any of our ministers set an evil example in the eating of flesh-meat.” Whereby in Leviticus 11 (in the bible) it outlines the rules about meat eating. 

Some things I really do not understand 

Thanks for your reply BESS, as for the example you gave I can only say this. The New Testament in the writings of Paul makes it clear you can eat everything as long as you do it to the Glory of the Lord. I must say I can not see how you can Glorify the Lord with eating swine flesh, as you know God has cursed the swine in the writings of Moses. And are not our Ministers duty to set an example for the congregation? As you may know, EGW gave us the health message where we are to refrain from eating meat. But the Bible does not forbid this, so it can only be an advice, not a command. 

Happy Sabbath Elijah 

Thanks for your reply 

“The Bible must be our standard for e-v-e-r-y doctrine and practice… We are to receive no one’s opinion without comparing it with the Scriptures. Here [in the Bible] is [the] divine authority which is supreme in matters of faith. It is the word of the living God that is to decide all controversies.”  E. G. White to Brethren who shall assemble in General Conference, Aug. 5, 1888

Greetings 

Thanks for sharing and indeed "The Bible must be our standard for every doctrine and practice".

And that is the book I use as my first choice.

FALSE, SELF SERVING STATEMENT AND A BACK STAB TO GOD.

Well.... What I do understand is that one do not have to read her books in order to gain eternal life. 

On the other hand, one can read her books and by doing so it draws them closer to God.

Rick thanks for your reply as we find out you were baptised at 14 years of age, that was in your case way too early as you do not seem to understand what you got yourself baptised into.  

I AM AMAZED AT YOUR IN DEPTH KNOWLEDGE AND INSIGHT EVEN WITH LITTLE TO NO DATA. IT IS TRULY MIRACULOUS.  

"ELIJAH FOR GC PRESIDENT". 

There are lots of quotes going around claiming to be from Ellen G White when in fact they are not. Always verify whether the quote is in actuality coming from the pen of inspiration before giving heed to it.
