Ellen white was successful in deceiving people into believing 'vicar of Christ'(in Greek or something) was alphabetically 666. Well, people ate it up because they were morons. She added a conspiracy ideology to the Book of Revelation. The visions John saw from God, are not what Ellen said they are. John forewarned her what would happen if she added to his prophecies. She arrogant ignored him. She is likely in hell as we speak.<quoted text>
This was said of just Peter but the entire churchof believers. And no we do not have any authority to change God's law. There are warnings for changing any part of the Bible in Rev 22.
There are no Biblical popes. However with this White character I was caught up in that for a while (10 years) so can comment, briefly. Catholics too have many mystics they claim get revelation from God. We are told in the Bible our sons and daughter will dream dreams and have visions. So, each claim has to be looked at seriously. If it agrees with the Bible then there may be something usefull. However today im of the opinion these dreams and visions are for the individual's own personal use as led by the Holy spirit, and not to lead others since there is no way to verify anything new.
Ellen White did not invent the Sabbath. There are over 500 denominations who keep the correct 7th day Sabbath. She is wrong about some things (not as much as the Catholic) but not wrong about the Sabbath.
That's not a nice thought Socci.
