Exposing Adventism - That is Quite a Stack!

Robert K Sanders, who maintains the excellent research site truthorfables.com, sent me this most impressive picture. He said that it is from a book written by William A. Spicer called “The Spirit of Prophecy in the Advent Movement” (Washington, D.C.: Review and Herald, 1937).

I suspect that with all the compilations that have been produced since that time many of us have even more than this. A couple of months ago I consolidated all the Ellen White books that we have onto one section of our personal bookshelves. Some of the books are duplicates. They totaled 102 inches, or 8-1/2 feet!

Gilbert, this reminds me of Proverbs 30:6….

ASV: Add thou not unto his words, Lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.

BBE: Make no addition to his words, or he will make clear your error, and you will be seen to be false.

CEV: Don’t change what God has said! He will correct you and show that you are a liar.

KJV: Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.

NIV: Do not add to his words, or he will rebuke you and prove you a liar.

WBS: Add thou not to his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.

WEB: Don’t you add to his words, lest he reprove you, and you be found a liar.

YLT: Add not to His words, lest He reason with thee, And thou hast been found false.

Matthew Henry: “There is not the least ground to suspect anything wanting in the word of God; adding to his words opens the way to errors and corruptions.”

Spanish: No añadas á sus palabras, porque no te reprenda, Y seas hallado mentiroso.

French: N’ajoute rien à ses paroles, De peur qu’il ne te reprenne et que tu ne sois trouvé menteur.

German: Tue nichts zu seinen Worten hinzu, damit er dich nicht überführe und du als Lügner erfunden werdest.

History confirms, that the Catholic Church revenue grew in large part because of the fascination by displaying the Shroud of Turin. There has been a LOT of scientific evidence that it is indeed NOT the imprint or blood of Christ, or even in His time period! Something that is different, new, and possibly a link to the Savior creates awe and a willingness to pay to get closer to Him. One can compare this with the stack of writings of the mysterious visions and teachings of the interesting prophetess, Ellen G. White. If it wasn’t for her writings, the Seventh-day Adventist Church would not be in the financial status it is today. Now, through the work of honest men and women of God, it is in my opinion from the evidence shown that Ellen G. White is not a true prophetess, or a direct messenger of God. Makes you think about the spirit behind the movement, doesn’t it?

It is interesting to see the spiritual journeys that each of us have taken in our lives based on the "discovery" that much of what the SDA church has claimed was inspired writing has rather dubious history.

However, if you think this is somehow something NEW or UNIQUE to the writings of Ellen White, then I think it’s important to take that next step and see how this isn’t a new phenonmenon in the history of the christian church. I would HIGHLY recommend a couple of books on early church writings (not all of which include the cannonical new testiment) written by Bart Ehrman, chair of religious studies at the University of North Carolina and a well-known authority on the early church and greek, latin, and hebrew documents.

"misquoting jesus" and "Lost Chrisitianities" do an excellent job of looking at the overall issues of copying, rewriting etc. in the early church as well. And his credentials are as conservative as any SDA theologian… graduate of Moody Bible and Wheaton Colleges….
