Exposing Adventism - Ellen White and the blame game

Adam said, "I am just a helpless victim of the circumstances."

Genesis 3:8-12 (NIV)
8 Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the LORD God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from the LORD God among the trees of the garden. 9 But the LORD God called to the man, "Where are you?"
10 He answered, "I heard you in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid."
11 And he said, "Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree that I commanded you not to eat from?"
12 The man said, "The woman you put here with me — she gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate it."

Eve said, "I am just a helpless victim of the circumstances."

Genesis 3:13 (NIV)
13 Then the LORD God said to the woman, "What is this you have done?"
The woman said, "The serpent deceived me, and I ate."

Ellen White said, "We are just helpless victims of our circumstances."

I have seen that the 1843 chart was directed by the hand of the Lord, and that it should not be altered; that the figures were as He wanted them; that His hand was over and hid a mistake in some of the figures, so that none could see it, until His hand was removed. (Early Writings, p. 74)

Very seldom do you find man coming out openly, outrightly, and blatantly saying it is God's fault. But that is what lies beneath the surface; we are blaming God for the whole thing, trying to turn guilt into fate and to make of ourselves mere innocent victims, suffering from a breakdown in creation for which God is responsible.

Very good point, Gilbert. It was this very quote from Ellen which you posted above that was the nail in her coffin for me. I had heard that statement over the years in school, etc, but when I read it in the context of Dale Ratzlaff's Cultic Doctrine book, I realized with frightening clarity that she was a false prophet. No well-meaning, God-honoring woman or man could accuse God of lying because He had an ulterior motive.

God cannot lie. To blame God for deliberate deception so people would believe a falsehood in order to produce a desired response ("get ready") is blasphemy that directly reflects its origin, the father of lies.

In my opinion, this statement of Ellen's is all that's necessary for proving she's a false prophet.
