Criticism Spotlight
Borrowing from Conybeare and Howson: An Analysis   Back in 1919, Dudley Canright charged that Ellen White had plagiarized her 1883 book, Sketches from the Life of Paul, from a book by two British authors. He went so far as to claim that the authors had even threatened a lawsuit. Was there any truth in all of this? In this series of pages we examine the comparisons between the two books provided for us by critic Sydney Cleveland.

Her Beliefs
The Infallible Word of God   Ellen White repeatedly referred to the Bible as being infallible. At the same time, she was unsparing in her opposition to "higher criticism." To her, God had inspired the Bible writers with divine thoughts, which they then put into their own words. It was therefore her contention that the thoughts expressed by the words of Scripture were true.

Quote for Today (How we select)
    "A mere profession of godliness is worthless. It is he that abideth in Christ that is a Christian. For 'every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.' In every clime, in every nation, our youth should cooperate with God. The only way a person can be pure is to become like-minded with God. How can we know God?—By studying his word. 'And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom thou hast sent.'"
(Youth's Instructor 2/15/1894)

Fulfilled or Fallacy?
Scientists: What Causes Hurricanes Like Katrina?   Ellen White predicted that scientists would falsely attribute hurricanes and other disasters to mere naturalistic processes. Oddly enough, many scientists have done that very thing in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, casting blame upon global warming and weather cycles.
