Mrs. White says Adventism's Message and Her
Writings Stand or Fall Together

It is interesting to note that in the August 14, 1883 Review & Herald the following statement was made: "Our position on the Testimonies is like the keystone to the arch. Take that out, and there is no logical stopping place till all the special truths of the message are gone.... NOTHING IS SURER THAN THIS, THAT THIS MESSAGE AND THE VISIONS BELONG TOGETHER AND STAND OR FALL TOGETHER" (emphasis added) 


The Scripture says, "But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons...." 1 Timothy 4:1

Matthew 24:24 (emphasis added)

1 John 4:1 (emphasis added)

We have clearly shown just a few examples that prove Mrs. White does not fulfill the biblical tests of a prophet. A prophet needs only ONE false prophecy to be disqualified. In Deuteronomy 18:20-22 the Scripture gives us the rule by which we are to judge prophets:

MRS. WHITE ADMITS THERE ARE ONLY TWO POSSIBLE SOURCES FOR HER WORK "God is either teaching His church, reproving their wrongs and strengthening their faith, or He is not. THIS WORK IS OF GOD, OR IT IS NOT. God does nothing in partnership with Satan. MY WORK... BEARS THE STAMP OF GOD OR THE STAMP OF THE ENEMY. There is no half-way work in the matter. THE TESTIMONIES ARE OF THE SPIRIT OF GOD OR OF THE DEVIL" Testimonies for the Church, vol. 4, p. 230 (emphasis added)

"IF THE TESTIMONIES SPEAK NOT ACCORDING TO THIS WORD OF GOD, REJECT THEM. Christ and Belial cannot be united" Testimonies for the Church, vol. 5, p. 691 (emphasis added)

The Lord warned Israel about being deceived by false prophets. He said that if what a prophet said came true, even if he worked a miracle, if he contradicted God's Word he was a false prophet. God will watch to see whether we love that prophet more than we love Him.

Deuteronomy 13:1-3 (emphasis added) 


You have seen evidence proving that Ellen G. White could not possibly be a true prophetess of God. She has failed the biblical tests of a true prophet. Her visions and revelations contradict God's previous revelations and she contradicts herself. Mrs. White made predictions which did not come to pass and she had been caught lying. In the light of this evidence you are faced with a decision, and it may be the most important decision of your life: a decision to follow the truth.

Nothing is more important than following the truth, no matter what it may cost you. We are accountable for what we know and no amount of rationalization will make Ellen White a true prophet. You have seen that the foundation of Adventism is flawed and cracked. It is not a movement of God. It was founded by a false prophet. Jesus said that "you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free", John 8:32.

If you act on what you have learned it may cost you your denominational job, your friends or even your family. The words of Jesus are a solemn encouragement to us. He said:

Matthew 10:37-39

I urge you to step out in faith and follow the truth, trusting Jesus Christ to lead you and care for you. Place your entire faith in Him. Trust Him and Him alone for your eternal salvation. He will accept you and save you if you will call on Him. "Whoever will call upon the name of the Lord will be saved." Romans 10:13

God's Plan of Salvation is so simple! The apostle Paul explains how God saves us:

Romans 3:21-28, Living Bible

The Bible says that "...the witness is this, that God has given us eternal life, and this is in His Son. HE WHO HAS THE SON HAS THE LIFE; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life. These things I have written to YOU WHO BELIEVE IN THE NAME OF THE SON OF GOD, in order that you MAY KNOW THAT YOU HAVE ETERNAL LIFE" 1 John 5:11-13 (emphasis added).

Following the truth of the Lord Jesus can be costly, but the blessings of doing so far outweigh the cost! Jesus gave everything for you when He left heaven to come to earth to die. He loves you so much that no sacrifice was too much to purchase your salvation. He offers you His peace, His life, His joy, and His rest!

Don't be surprised by opposition - When the man who was born blind was healed by Jesus and could see things clearly for the first time, he immediately experienced persecution and tremendous opposition. Don't be surprised if you are treated in the same way. But no one can rob you of the truth. You can say, with that man born blind, "...Whether He is a sinner, I do not know; one thing I do know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see" John 9:25.

May God Bless and protect you as you make your decision for Him. 

"Then He opened their minds to understand the scriptures"
Luke 24:45 (NRSV)
