QUESTION: Do all SDA
pastors believe in Sister White?
[Brother Anderson] No, I am personally aware of many who do not believe she was a
prophet. However, in many cases these pastors must profess some level of belief in her
in order to retain their jobs. It forces them to live somewhat of a double life. It is a
terrible situation to be in. Please pray for these pastors.
[Dale Ratzlaff] I have personally spoken with dozens of SDA pastors who do not believe in Ellen White. In addition, I have spoken with conference and general conference personell in high offices who have told me in private that: (1) Ellen White is not "the Spirit of Prophecy"; (2) the SDA church is not the remnant church of Bible prophecy; (3) the Sabbath is not the seal of God for new covenant Christians; (4) Adventist's 1844 sanctuary doctrine is not biblical; (5) Sunday is not, nor will become, the mark of the beast.

Also, in my latest book, Adventist to Christian, I name some of the SDA leaders who held some of the above points.
