Why are so many of you so obssessed about EGW anyway? There is much more to the SDA denomination, or any other one for that matter, than just one belief.

Oh yeah, post your reason and not some scriture or EGW stuff. Tell us in our own words if you can.

I agree with you. Yes, there are those that are obsessed with Aunt Ellen, because she makes it possible to believe in something without really having to think that belief through. In most cases this obsession is innocent. Years ago my wife and I were singing a Friday evening vesper program at an SDA retirement village near Loma Linda. A friend of ours came with us and gave a very nice devotional. After the program concluded a very lovely old lady came up carrying a 'red book' in her hand. Her comment to our friend was that she wished that he had used more of EGW's writings in his devotional rather than the Bible, because she was God's gift to our church, and as SDA's we must believe in her. She also said that in her life she had read every word that EGW had written, and that she felt that because of this her salvation is secure. This is a true account that underscores the devotion that some people have for a woman that redirected the SDA church to a place that while God knew about it, He did not intend for this to happen.

There are also some who use EGW for command and control purposes, to gain political (within the church) or financial gain. These are the ones we have to watch for, and fight at every turn, for they will destroy to purpose for which the SDA church was founded.

I understand what you are saying and it hurts me to the core that so many depend on EGW instead of the Bible.

But, what I really want to know is why so many HATE as they do when it comes to her. I can understand not liking that she copied stuff and then said the Lord showed her and all of that, but the HATE that is shown in this forum is really ridiculous. I just don't understand why, if one does not like her or whatever, they just don't go on with their lives and make a statement of why they don't like her and then let it go?

My mother used to say, "God doesn't hate the sinner, He hates the sin". That is how I feel about EGW. I don't hate her, I hate what she is representing as truth. BUT, if EGW was not around then we would not KNOW FOR SURE that the SDA is the basis for the Kingdom of Heaven at the end of time. We see her in the prophecy in Revelation 2 starting in verse 19. She identifies the SDA church as Thyatira, and without her being in play.

Why so many depend on EGW? I think it is because they are to lazy to study for themselves.

And I believe that those who have so much hate for EGW is because most answers are from her instead of Scripture when a question is asked.

Funny How Mr's White knew so much about Health, modern medicine isn't only starting to catch up to Her

Would say the reason some people reject Her: isn't because of Their Brain, but perhaps their Stomach and taste buds disagree with Her Writings

She was a false prophet. That's why.

OW, you say that there is so much more to the SDA denomination, or any other for that matter... than just one belief!

The truth is that there was never anything really good about the denomination. If the advent people in 1844 had co-operated with God and proclaimed the third angel's message by the power of the Holy Spirit, the work would have been finished and there would never have been an sda "denomination" like the other "denominations"... it was never the will of God that His people should be orgnanized like the other denominations except that our leaders went far beyond the other denominations... they wanted a visible head so they voted a man as "president" a king was enthroned in the place of the Holy Ghost and in that way they followed in the track of papal Rome. They put God aside and adopted the devisings of men with their constitutions, voting, resolutions, delegations, hierarchy, church manuel, and finally a creed!

The Lord, through the weakest of the weak, told them that if they were going to allow this order of things to continue their faith would soon become extinct! They did not listen. They were told what to do and what not to do but they rejected the light. The Lord told them that unless they became humble in heart and cease the work of making man amenable to man, He would divorce them from His work.

So I think it is the other way around. There is so much more, sooooooooo much more to be gained from studying the writings of this humbly woman (God's feeble instrument) than expecting any good to come from the "organized work" of the "denomination" because the "organized work" is antagonistic to the third angel's message.

Many years ago the Lord through Ellen told our leaders that there would be no material change until a decided movement was made to bring in a different order of things! The Lord was asking for a change, for Gospel order as revealed in the book of Acts!

There is no sign that there will ever be a decided movement to bring in a different order of things (Gospel Order) and we have been told that this apostasy (making man amenable to man, high-handed power that has developed as though position has made men gods) on the part of our leaders will wax stronger and stronger until Jesus comes in the clouds of Heaven and the faithful few who shall give the last message of mercy to the church and to the world will be persecuted by the "organized work" as Jesus and His disciples were persecuted by the "organized work" of their day!
