Who is Ellen G. White?

    Ellen White taught no such thing. She taught that we are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. She believed in the keeping of God's commandments as an outward sign of that faith.( the Bible does teach this) She believed in the spirit of the Reformation and the faith that drove the early Reformers. She wrote about the Ecumenical Movement and Protestants forgetting what it is they protest. cont...

  • No where in the bible does it say you are not saved if you do not go to church on the Sabbath ( Sat)
    So I would think that Ellen is a false teacher in that regard. She is teaching false doctrine that is not even in the bible.

  • She wrote about the benefits of a vegetarian diet, and the spiritual importance of protecting one's health. You have but to look around at the rising rates of obesity, heart disease, and other preventable diseases to find proof of the benefits. It's hard to serve God and others when you're sick. Read some of her writings and not just the stuff on the sites that speak against her.

  • What about the masturbation stuff? Thousand of men and women masturbate and yet how many end up in the loony bin and have deformed kids? Also how often are masturbators actually sick? I say masturbation helps ease stress, stress causees illness. Is there proof of this stuff being true?
