...If our admission that our prophetess is not infallible is meant to be taken seriously, we would do well to ask ourselves whether the same can be said of the spirit of prophecy. Then we must ask ourselves if the designation fits.  It is rather ironic that the very verse that brings us this phrase [spirit of prophecy] first firmly urges us away from worshiping the messenger: “And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: …worship God…”

Could that have been in anticipation of something?

Post here for all to see those who worship the messenger. If you can't then all will see the  real you. 

John 8:44 New International Version (NIV)

44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies

Man, you have some problems with Sister White have you not? Here we see an accusative spirit latches on to words like “cultish” and “hijack” This is a reflection of how Satan is an “accuser of the brethren” through his human agents. The Spirit of healing, the Spirit of teaching, the Spirit of evangelism, the Spirit of apostleship, and the Spirit of prophecy— these are terms which can be used to denote any manifestation of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. The special ministry of E.G. White in the SDA Church, and it is not unbiblical. True, SDAs use the term “SOP” almost in every case to mean the ministry and work of E.G. White. SDA's do have a cultural or denominational jargon. Let each man be convinced in his own mind, but I will NOT become an “accuser of the brethren” in a matter that is moot!

Thanks for your response, Elijah. Unreflective and intransigent, but thanks anyway.

I will be damned if I see "The Lord's servant" as you do. Your Post seemed to accuse some of worshiping EGW as a saint while I am having respect for who she is, I Do not worship her and none I know do. 

You clearly haven't read the article. It repeatedly states it isn't about Mrs White, it's about our distorted veneration of her.

I adore her.

thank her for bringing her up

She was no saint but ohh.. how she loved Jesus and in my opinion the writings as she got older .. the more i see her growth in understanding Our Marvelous God.

So many in Heaven cause of at least one book

The Desire of Ages.


I came in on Great Controversy.

She WAS a saint, just like all other believers (1 Corinthians 1:2 and elsewhere).

Amen We are Saints!

I was using the term saint as lifted up like other christianity symbols of perfection\

yes! The Great Controversy!

 The last chapter described ALL watching in a panoramic view  the Story of Redemption and watching Jesus die on the Cross for ALL!


And im on the outside of the Kingdom seeing Jesus take my sins upon Himself and its too late.

That slew me.

God got me.

The Desire of Ages and His Love for me ..keeps me :D

God is so good to all of us!


It was chiefly the history and prophecy stuff stuff that did it for me.

Are God's people really above criticism? Can we even accept criticism from the Bible? If not, why even bother to read it, seeing so much of it is admonition and reproof. If you believe Revelation 19:10 refers specifically and exclusively to Mrs White, why not just explain why in a coherent way so everyone else will understand?

You are a very crafty man Roy very much like the accuser. We have seen you come here with your sneaky articles time after time, with implications of EGW is a curse to Adventism. Just like Lucifer, you are showing discontent:

Leaving his place in the immediate presence of the Father, Lucifer went forth to diffuse the spirit of discontent among the angels. He worked with mysterious secrecy, and for a time concealed his real purpose under an appearance of reverence for God. He began to insinuate doubts concerning the laws that governed heavenly beings, intimating that though laws might be necessary for the inhabitants of the worlds, angels, being more exalted, needed no such restraint, for their own wisdom was a sufficient guide. They were not beings that could bring dishonor to God; all their thoughts were holy; it was no more possible for them than for God Himself to err. The exaltation of the Son of God as equal with the Father was represented as an injustice to Lucifer, who, it was claimed, was also entitled to reverence and honor. If this prince of angels could but attain to his true, exalted position, great good would accrue to the entire host of heaven; for it was his object to secure freedom for all. But now even the liberty which they had hitherto enjoyed was at an end; for an absolute Ruler had been appointed them, and to His authority all must pay homage. Such were the subtle deceptions that through the wiles of Lucifer were fast obtaining in the heavenly courts. {PP 37.1}
