I know that I've quoted from Ellen White a lot lately, and SummerIndigo said she was going to do some research, so I thought I'd just go ahead and create a thread about her.
For those of you who don't know:
I am a Seventh-day Adventist and we believe that Ellen White was a prophet.
She lived from 1827-1915 and is considered one of the founders (along with her husband, James White and a few others) of the Adventist church.
She wrote over 5000 articles and 40 books, which Adventists believe are inspired.
Just so we're clear, we don't take her writings as scripture (and we test everything she says with the Bible), but we do believe she had "the Spirit of Prophecy" and even recieved visions from God.
Anyways, here's the wikipedia page on her:

Please, feel free to come to me with any questions or if you want to know more. :)
God bless. ♥
Now I need to look her up. I'm SummerIndigo's sister.
Okay, I read a couple Wikipedia articles related to Ellen White. It seems a little suspect to me. XD
I have a few questions.
1. Were her teachings on diet and healthy living from a vision or from the Bible?
2. How does she differ from John Smith (the Mormon dude?) Is she considered more trustworthy because she had more visions? (Or something to that effect...)
3. What's this Great Controversy thing?
Half.note: You know, I decided to do this really weird exhaustive search on Ellen White, bjt stopped short in midair, shaked my head. and said, "Nope. Isn't worth the effort." Instead I went ahead and did a little bit of research on the function of podocytes. :P
I have this weird thing that Ellen White doesn'f it in my definition of practicality. Seems a bit too dreamy and ornate to me.
ANyways, don't egt offended! That's just what I think. I'll do a bit of research (provided you give the links) on her during summer. Right now, I'm 'bout to drop like a ton of lead. <.>
"Right now, I'm 'bout to drop like a ton of lead."
You do realize a ton of lead is not heavier than a ton of anything else, right :P
Wow. In 1899 she looked super unhappy, or at least it seems like that from Wikipedia.
From "Your Seventh-Day Adventist Neighbor":
"They appear upbeat and friendly."
because it's not possible that other Christians can appear upbeat or friendly, let alone a combination of the two.
K, I'm going to leave now.
Stuntdude: Well, yeah, but it still causes much pain when it drops on your foot than a ton of bird feathers. Ow!
