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.

Insightful Info
Why More Hurricanes Now?   Ellen White's insight into the recent increase in number and intensity of hurricanes is intriguing. While she considered them to be warnings from God and signs that Christ's coming is near, she also wrote that if it hadn't have been for God's protection, there would have been a lot more devastating hurricanes heretofore.

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)
    "'Come unto Me,' is His invitation. Whatever your anxieties and trials, spread out your case before the Lord. Your spirit will be braced for endurance. The way will be opened for you to disentangle yourself from embarrassment and difficulty. The weaker and more helpless you know yourself to be, the stronger will you become in His strength. The heavier your burdens, the more blessed the rest in casting them upon the Burden Bearer. The rest that Christ offers depends upon conditions, but these conditions are plainly specified. They are those with which all can comply. He tells us just how His rest is to be found."
(Desire of Ages 329)

Since Nero's persecution, Christians were everywhere the objects of hatred and suspicion. Any evil-disposed person could easily secure the arrest and imprisonment of one of the [p. 305] proscribed sect. And now the Jews conceived the idea ..."
