QUESTION: Are you angry with the SDA Church? Do you hate Ellen White?
Our opponents delight in describing us as "angry", "having an axe to grind", or "haters of Ellen White." They misconstrue our motives in order to serve their own purposes in tearing down our characters. The truth is we are not motivated by anger or hatred toward the church. Our motivation is love. We love the Adventist people and desire to show them the truth so that they can make an educated decision regarding Ellen White.
Do you think true love is shown to someone by withholding vital information from them? And yet that is exactly what some Adventist leaders have done by withholding the full truth about Ellen White from church members. We seek to save people from a life that is less than what God intended. Anyone who follows a false prophet is in danger of leading a life that is less than what God had intended for him or her.
We do not hate Adventists, the SDA Church, or Ellen White. We are disappointed in the course taken by some Adventist leaders, but we do not hate these brethren. We pity them. There is one thing, however, that we do hate. We hate falsehood. There is "a time to hate" (Eccl. 3:8). We hate deceptions that trick people into believing something that is not true. We hate myths that are foisted upon people as if they are the truth.
The wise man said, "The righteous hate what is false" (Prov. 13:5 NIV). Every Christian should hate what is false. God hates falsehood. "I hate every false way" (Ps. 119:104,128). "These six [things] doth the LORD hate...a lying tongue..." (Prov. 6:16,17).
We do not hate the SDA Church or people, but we will not stand by in silence while people are being deceived as to the true nature of Ellen White. Our love for the Adventist people compells us to act for their best interest.
