A Conversation with a
Seventh-day Adventist

The following is a conversation I had with SDA, an ardent follower, supporter, and defender of Seventh-day Adventist Church practices and doctrines. It is hoped that you, the reader, will see that in spite of the claims of SDA and other Seventh-day Adventists to the contrary, this church and its prophetess Ellen G. White teach a different gospel from the one taught in the Bible. As a result, one who joins this religion does so at his peril. This conversation takes the form of 8 e-mail posts from June 21, 1997 to June 28, 1997.

Hi SDA! Steps to Christ is a good book, but what do you do with the
other passages she has written that counter the gospel?

She endorsed such doctrines like the shut door and investigative
judgment, which does contradict the gospel. And since she claimed
the truths of these doctrines were revealed to her in vision, I would
have to say that she is a prophet in the same sense as Joseph
Smith or Mary Baker Eddy.

EGW at:


I would be interested in your comments on the Shut Door and IJ [Investigative Judgment].
