Criticism Spotlight
"Contradiction #15: Jesus Christ Not Truly God"   Ellen White stands accused of contradicting the Bible when she wrote that Jesus was "not the Lord God Almighty." The puzzling thing about this one, though, is that our critic forgot to quote the last half of the sentence. That omitted half changes the meaning of the sentence into something few Christians find heretical.

Her Beliefs
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.

Quote for Today (How we select)
    "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?
