5.0 su 5 stelle "And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free" John 8:32(KJV) 7 maggio 2013
Di Grace - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile|Acquisto verificato
I was born and raised in the SDA church and school system (third generation on both sides of my parents). As a small child, I had many fears of end time events, specifically about the Sunday-law persecution of Sabbath keepers (taught from Ellen G. White's book The Great Controversy, p.592). I was also very much afraid that I would not be `good enough' to go to heaven, and that at any time if I were to die without being perfect, I would surely not enter. These fears were only made worse as I became old enough to read Ellen G. White's books for myself; when reading her material I would have a terrible insecurity that I would never be good enough or achieve the perfection that seemed to be required. I spoke to my mother about these feelings and her response was that my sinful heart must be the problem. My mother told me that she found Ellen White's writings to be such an inspiration and beautiful expansion on Biblical truths; that we all should uphold those standards. As an adult, I stopped reading Ellen White's books, and through only reading the Bible came to the knowledge that my salvation has nothing to do with how `good' I am. (I suppose this is common knowledge for most Christians, but definitely wasn't in the SDA environment I grew up in). This new knowledge set me free to serve and love Jesus with a heart full of gratitude for His sacrifice, and ever since I have treasured the knowledge that my salvation is sure! Ellen White teaches that you can never claim to be saved, that we all are under investigation (this is the SDA's unbiblical teaching of the sanctuary doctrine, which came into teaching as a secondary conjecture after Jesus failed to appear on Oct. 22, 1844).
The book, Are Seventh-Day Adventists False Prophets? By Wallace Slattery was the next step in helping to truly set me free as a Christian. I relate to all Mr. Slattery spoke about being raised in the SDA organization. I have only recently studied into the historical facts (from other sources other than just the slanted events presented from the church) of the formation of the SDA church and prophecies of Ellen White, and am still in a bit of shock realizing that my entire life, the `TRUTH' was actually teachings of a false prophetess. I do not blame my parents or grandparents for misleading me, each are/were sincere Christian people, who sincerely believed what was presented to them was the whole truth. But not all the historical facts have been available so easily as in our age of technology. I thank Mr. Slattery and his wife for following the truth that God presented to them, and for bravely publishing their story. It has been a stepping stone in my path to spiritual freedom!

Di Humbled - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
I grew up a Seventh-day Adventist. I went all through grade school and high school in the Seventh-day Adventists system. My parents would read to myself and my siblings every morning Ellen G. White books. At church Ellen G. White was always quoted, in both the children's and adult's Sabbath school classes she was quoted and used to pass judgment onto others. I've always felt judged and never good enough as a person. Because I was a very highly active and energetic child, I didn't fit into the other people's mold. I was always told that I could never say that I was saved and could go to heaven, because I was being judged by God, and that every sin I committed that He would be waiting for me, and would have the Book of my life in His hands and He was waiting to judge my life. I finally said, "Screw it! I'm out of here!" I not only left the SDA church but I left Christianity and became a worldly, atheist, non-believer. There was an event in my life that rocked me to my core. At that point I fell to my knees and cried out to God. He lovingly, graciously, and caringly saved me. I was accepted and loved by non-SDA Christians. After I was accepted by Christ, I wanted to go back to the church I grew up in. When I went back I was judged even harsher than before. The member's displayed a prideful and arrogant attitude that they had the elite truth, and all other denominations are going to hell. They said that I had received my recommitment from a different denominational church without the truth (which the other church kept the Sabbath as well). I started researching the SDA history and have found so many documented facts that the SDA organization has hid from their members. The vision that Ellen G. White claims in her book, Testimonies for the Church, where she saw people walking down a narrow path, which became so narrow at the end that the people could barely remain on the path, and there were chords from the sky that came down to save them. This exact vision was shown to me in 1Nephi chapter 8 in The Book of Mormon, which this book was published in 1830, more than ten years before Ellen G. White became a supposed prophet. The majority of all her visions and books are documented as being plagiarized from other sources. Now I am free and untangling all the programming of lies from Ellen G. White's writings and the Seventh-day Adventists teachings. Now they tell me I'm going straight to hell. I just thank Jesus for His grace, love and mercy, and that I don't need to be perfect to go to heaven (or act that I am perfect and judge others hypocritically when we all are sinners.) Thank you Mr. Slattery for sharing your story; your book has been an encouragement. Thank you for the documentation and facts to help guide where I could find the original source materials from the White Estate for my research.

I noticed that a "former" minister stated that this church teaches righteousness by works...i beg to differ, i am a researcher and found no such thing. I encourage all readers to go to the source.
adventist.org. this christian organization teaches the biblical righteousness by faith.

1.0 su 5 stelle How reliable is Slattery? 27 marzo 2014
Di Amazon Customer - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
Since Slattery's book expects you to take his word for quite a number of things, it was important for me to verify his accuracy.

Slattery asserts that Ellen White taught a shut door of mercy for all sinners after her first vision in January 1845 until about 1851 (pp. 15, 29). He states that immediately after Hiram Edson's "impression" about Jesus entering the Most Holy Place of the heavenly sanctuary, Sabbath-keeping Adventists first began to labor for the world (p. 15). However, Ellen White's first vision was in December 1844, after Hiram Edson's "impression" of October 23, 1844. If they started working for the world after October 23, 1844, there is no way Ellen White taught a shut door of mercy until 1851. It's hopelessly contradictory.

There are lots of less important mistakes, like Slattery saying that Adventists believe they will travel to heaven on a sea of glass (p. 21), when the sea of glass is what they stand on after they arrive in heaven, not what they travel on to get to heaven. Then there is his saying that William Miller started preaching in the 1820's (p. 14) when it was in 1831. He says that the Joseph Bates had Seventh Day Baptist ties, which is why he promoted the Sabbath among Adventists (p. 15). In reality, Rachel Oaks was the Seventh Day Baptist that told Methodist preacher Frederick Wheeler about the Sabbath. Perhaps Preble got the Sabbath concept from Oaks and Wheeler, Preble wrote an article on it, Bates read the article, and then Bates traveled to visit with Wheeler about it. Slattery leads the reader to think that S. S. Snow was off his rocker by 1844 (p. 14), but Snow didn't claim to be Elijah until after 1844. Slattery claims that Spectrum is an official Adventist journal (p. 7), but it never has been. All these facts are fairly well known and easily verifiable.

Slattery seems to contradict himself when he asserts that Jonah's prophecy against Nineveh can be implicitly conditional, but any condition for Ellen White's 1856 vision must be explicitly stated (p. 26).

If only the documentation were better. In order to prove that today's White Estate says that certain evidence is tenuous and cannot be validated (p. 5 n. 3), Slattery cites the 1919 Bible Conference minutes, a conference Willie White wasn't even at. He does this again on p. 38 n. 62 where he cites the same minutes as proof that a certain claim is still unverified. P. 53 n. 5 cites Signs of the Times 3-3-1888, but there was no issue with that date. P. 28 n. 20 cites an 1892 issue of Christianity Today for the opinions of Olson and Graybill, when Olson, the older of the two men, was born in 1920, and when Christianity Today didn't exist in 1892. P. 48 n. 5 cites the Adventist Review of Sept. 1868 for an alleged statement by James White about wine: No such journal by that title existed in 1868, Slattery doesn't say which of the four Sept. 1868 issues of the Review and Herald were intended, and an electronic search in all four issues for "wine" turned up no such statement by James White.

When read in their context, some of Slattery's quotations of Ellen White seem to give a different impression than what Slattery intended. Thus, I would highly recommend that any researcher who wishes to rely on Slattery first obtain the entire article or chapter his quotations come from, and see if Slattery's conclusions are really necessary. This is all the more necessary given the apparent inattentiveness to detail Slattery demonstrated in making the indisputable errors mentioned above.

1.0 su 5 stelle NOT SO FAST! I AM A 7TH DAY ADVENTIST!!! 2 dicembre 2004
Recensione sezione Ragazzi - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
I was born and raised in the Seventh-Day Adventist church, and I can say with authority that the church doesn't claim to be a prophet. Anyone who says it does gets us confused with the "Millerite movement" who tried to predict the end of the world in 1844. NEWS FLASH !!! The Seventh day adventist church was not organized into a denomination untill the early 1860's. DO THE MATH!

ALSO, Ellen White is not the final authority. The Bible is. Mrs. White, herself, clearly says "God wants us to go to the Bible." She is only an authority when she agrees with the scripture, and that's that. To be honest, I NEVER GO TO ELLEN WHITE FOR SPIRITUAL GUIDENCE OR ANYTHING ELSE. I'm good with my Bible.

We also beleive that we should keep the seventh day, Saturday, holy, that we don't have to keep the law to be saved. If you ask me what saves us, my answer will always be "GOD"S UNMERITED GRACE!"

There are a few nut in the church who would disagree, but our official beleife is that grace through faith is what saves us in Jesus Christ, and not by keeping the law.

We also beleive in the trinity, Christ's vigin birth, the personality of the Holy Spirit, and most of the traditional Christian teachings. So don't tell me we are not Christians, we are. For a better non-Adventist concept of what we beleive, I would like to recommend Dr. Walter Martin's book which is called "The Kingdom of the Cults." I know the title doesn't sound so good, but when you read the chapter about us, you will find that the author only put the chapter in there to demenstrate that we are not a cult, but a Christian denomination.
