Has the Seventh-day Adventist church departed from the pillars of truth given by God to its pioneers by adopting and promoting the false doctrine of the trinity?
To many Seventh-day Adventists, this may appearvery surprising
but the truth of the matter is that throughout the time of Ellen
White’s ministry (1844-1915), also for decades following her
death, the Seventh-day Adventist Church was a non-trinitarian
It is very interesting that regarding their non-trinitarian beliefs,
never once did Ellen White say that early Seventh-day
Adventists were wrong. This was even though some of our
pioneers were quite vocal at times in speaking out against the
trinity doctrine. This included her husband James
The record of our history reveals that through to his death in
1881, even after being married to the messenger of the Lord
for 35 years, James White remained a passionate
anti-trinitarian. Nowhere can it be found where Ellen White
said that her husband was wrong in these beliefs. This
must be considered quite an interesting observation.
It was also the same with the other early
Seventh-day Adventists. Never did Ellen White say
that they were wrong in rejecting
the trinity doctrine.
