The statement as found in article 18 of the book “Seventh-day Adventists Believe” in in fact a blasphemy.
It states that “Her (Ellen White’s) writings are a continuing and authoritative source of truth which provide for the church comfort, guidance, instruction and correction”. According to the New Testament, especially the Gospel of John chapter 14 and 16, and an in context study of Revelation, Jesus Christ is God. He alone is the truth , the way and the light. Not any writings of any person. What Jesus said and did while on earth are for our guidance, instruction and correction. The Holy Spirit is promised to dwell within all the individual believers to be our comfort. Not just one person. The Holy Spirit is also God. So to say that a person’s writings are thus, actually places that person as an equal with God. Such a statement is blasphemy. By making such a belief a part of the fundamental beliefs of the denomination, it turn the organisation into a cult. By teaching something contrary to what Jesus said, the denomination can no longer claim to be Christian.
What do you think?
I do wear earrings sometimes.
that's not cool Gabriel
That sounds tasty.
a mile wide and an inch deep
That would be hard to eat all that. I guess we could split up with the members of the forum. :)
Eating seems to be your main purpose in life.
You said you wanted it a mile wide and an inch deep. And to be fair, I am also a fan of respiration as well.1 Corinthians 10:31, "So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God."
I suppose we could discuss my toiletry habits too, it that makes you happy.
I'm a big fan of eating and breathing and drinking too.
1 Thessalonians 5 - 19 Do not quench the Spirit. 20 Do not despise prophecies. 21 Test all things; hold fast what is good. 22 Abstain from every form of evil.
I want to find out more about Ellen White before I choose to believe or disbelieve her professed prophecies.
are you serious? Not all prophets gave prophecies and not everyone who gives a true prophecy can be trusted, in other wise someone's prophecy may come to pass but that those not make him/her a true prophet.
I believe you will be most uplifted by the writings of Ellen White. They are most comprehensive and insightful because they are Inspired by Jesus. Aquila's recommendations are good ones. There is no better way to find out about Ellen White than to read her books. When I do so I hear Jesus speaking to me through the words.
