Exposing Adventism - Ellen White buried under a pagan oblisk

Where is Ellen White buried? She is buried under a pagan oblisk in a cemetary plot at Battle Creek, Michigan. The obelisk appears as a memorial to James White and was erected on the White burial site during Ellen White's life.

The obelisk was first used by the Egyptians to house the spirit of the Sun god Ra.

In the Bible, the obelisk was used in Baal worship. In one Old Testament account, the priests of God killed the Baal worshippers on God's orders, and their obelisks were destroyed.

2 Kings 10:25-26 (Amplified Bible)
25 As soon as he had finished offering the burnt offering, Jehu said to the guards and to the officers, Go in and slay them; let none escape. And they smote them with the sword; and the guards or runners [before the king] and the officers threw their bodies out and went into the inner dwelling of the house of Baal.
26 They brought out the pillars or obelisks of the house of Baal and burned them.
It is interesting that a symbol of the Egyptian Sun god would be chosen as the centerpiece for the burial site of James and Ellen White.
