Criticism Spotlight
"Myth #4: Lofted a Heavy Bible"   It has been suggested that the accounts of Mrs. White's supernaturally holding aloft an 18-pound Bible for an extended period are contradictory. We examine those accounts here, and come up with some rather surprising conclusions regarding their stated discrepancies.

Insightful Info
"The Passion of the Christ"   With all the publicity about Mel Gibson's new movie, it's interesting to note a few things Ellen White had to say about contemplating the closing scenes of Christ's life. Perhaps the transforming power she attributes to those scenes is what Mel found so helpful in his own spiritual life.

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)
    "Before honor is humility. To fill a high place before men, Heaven chooses the worker who, like John the Baptist, takes a lowly place before God. The most childlike disciple is the most efficient in labor for God. The heavenly intelligences can co-operate with him who is seeking, not to exalt self, but to save souls. He who feels most deeply his need of divine aid will plead for it; and the Holy Spirit will give unto him glimpses of Jesus that will strengthen and uplift the soul. From communion with Christ he will go forth to work for those who are perishing in their sins. He is anointed for his mission; and he succeeds where many of the learned and intellectually wise would fail."
(Desire of Ages 436)

Life Sketch Snippet
Divine Intervention   The train had run about three miles from Jackson when its motion became very violent, jerking backward and forward, and finally stopping. . . . The engine had been thrown from the track; but the car we were in was on the track, and was separated about one hundred feet from those before it. . . . We could but feel that God had sent an angel to preserve our lives.   [more]

Sketches From The Life of Paul   Chapter 29: The Final Arrest. "Though Paul's labors were chiefly among the churches, he could not escape the observation of his enemies. 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 ..."
