"Christ did not make the atonement when he shed his blood upon the cross. Let this fact be fixed forever in the mind."
--Uriah Smith, Looking Unto Jesus, p. 237.

"Twenty-five years ago, the self-evident truth that sin is not an entity but a condition that can exist only in a person, made it clear to me that there could he no such thing as the transferring of sins to the sanctuary in heaven, thus defiling that place; and that there could consequently be, either in 1844 AD or at any other time, no such thing as the 'cleansing of the heavenly sanctuary.'"
--E.J. Waggoner, Confession of Faith, 1916

"No scholar seriously believes that Jesus Christ is sitting in heaven turning pages to investigate Christian lives".
--Desmond Ford, Ph.D., Newsweek, Jan. 19, 1981

"I begged them to show me my error from the Word alone, as I could not offer the writings of Mrs. White to the general public as authority in support of any position. It was finally agreed to use the scriptures only in dealing with the matter. But notwithstanding this solemn agreement, the first man to reply, Eld. S.N. Haskell, commenced, and continued unrebuked, to quote the writings of Mrs. White against me."
--Albion Ballenger describes his trial for heresy, "The Bible in the Reformation", p. 2.

"I can truly say that never have I known a man of a kinder heart or more tender spirit than he, nor one who more genuinely and devoutly feared the Lord, or was more deeply devoted to His service and His worship."
--A.T. Jones writing on the death of Albion Ballenger, Gathering Call, Sep./Oct. 1921, p. 3.

"It was shocking to see that when the professors voted in favor of Dr. Ford, the administrators flew back to Washington DC, and printed just exactly the opposite of what happened, in the Adventist Review! Those of us who had kept abreast of what was going on were horrified to see our Church Leaders LYING about what was done and said at that lynching of Dr. Ford behind closed doors. They couldn’t dare tell the truth because the truth was that the Investigative Judgment Doctrine could NOT be supported by Scripture alone, and required the statements of Ellen G. White."
--Skip Baker, 2005

White's Teachings on 1844, Daniel 8:14, 2300-Days

SDA Claims about Ellen White:

  1. She was a prophet whose writings provide doctrinal guidance to the church
  2. She had visions supporting the church's current doctrines on 1844, Daniel 8:14, and the 2300-day prophecy

Bible Test #4 - A Prophet's Writings Cannot Contradict the Word of God:
"To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them." Isa. 8:20

nonsda.org will present the following evidence:

  1. The SDA doctrines on the Sanctuary and Investigative Judgment contradict the Bible
  2. Since Ellen White's visions support these doctrines, her visions are not from God

In Ellen White's own words: "The scripture which above all others had been both the foundation and the central pillar of the advent faith was the declaration: 'Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed.' Daniel 8:14."
--Great Controversy, 408
