Moody, Sankey, and the Shut Door One critic wonders how Ellen White could teach the shut door, when so many were
being converted in the crusades of Moody and Sankey. We took a look at a few resources
on the lives of these great Christian evangelists, and were a bit amused at what we found.|
Zinc Stored in the Brain Back in 1870, Ellen White wrote of a substance in the brain
that was needed to nourish the system. A century later, scientists confirmed that
zinc, which the brain contains a lot of, is indeed an important nutrient for humans.
They have also confirmed that zinc plays a part in many digestive and metabolic processes.
Lucky guess? Coincidence? Inspired? You decide.|
Eschatology: The Millennium Ellen White's eschatology was most definitely pre-millennial. She believed in a
millennium composed of a literal 1000 years, immediately preceded by a literal second coming
of Christ. However, her view of what takes place during the millennium was somewhat
different from that of many evangelicals. See if you think her views were biblical or not.|
| "So we may resist temptation, and force Satan to depart from us.
Jesus gained the victory through submission and faith in God, and by
the apostle He says to us, 'Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist
the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw nigh to God, and He will
draw nigh to you.' James 4:7, 8. We cannot save ourselves from the
tempter's power; he has conquered humanity, and when we try to stand
in our own strength, we shall become a prey to his devices; but 'the name
of the Lord is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.'
Prov. 18:10. Satan trembles and flees before the weakest soul who finds
refuge in that mighty name."|

|Fulfilled or Fallacy?|
Rome to Regain Her Lost Supremacy At leastly partly because of Ellen White, Seventh-day Adventists are
one of the few groups still concerned about the papacy retaking control of the world.
Is this concern just a relic of the Dark Ages, or is it possible that it just might happen?
Have the principles the papacy exhibited in the past changed, or does it operate
today pretty much like it always has?|

Marriage and Subsequent Labors August 30, 1846, I was united in marriage
to Elder James White. Elder White had enjoyed a deep experience
in the advent movement, and his labors in proclaiming the truth
had been blessed of God. Our hearts were united in the great
work, and together we traveled and labored for the salvation of souls. [more]|
