Exposing Adventism - Sin - Unconscious sins no excuse

Ellen White has numerous statements regarding the necessity of overcoming "unconscious" sin. With all the preoccupation that Adventists have on telling others that they need to "keep" the Sabbath, it is no wonder that Adventists don't have either the time or the energy to achieve the perfection required so God can be "vindicated"! What a sad order of misplaced priorities.
