• Men are pursuing a similar course to that of the Roman Catholics.” {Ellen White: 9MR, p.179 Letter 53, 1894} 
  • “I saw the nominal CHURCH and nominal Adventists, like Judas, would betray us to the Catholics to obtain their influence to come against the truth.“ {Ellen White: Spalding Magan Unpublished Testimonies, p. 1} 

Neal Wilson, long-time President of the General Conference (1979-1990), had the following statement conveyed to the state authorities in the context of the Omega waste:

  • “Although it is true that there was a period in the life of the Seventh-day Adventist Church when the denomination took a distinctly anti-Roman Catholic viewpoint, and the term ‘hierarchy’ was used in a pejorative sense to refer to the papal form of church governance, that attitude on the church’s part was nothing more than a manifestation of widespread anti-popery among conservative Protestant denominations in the early part of this (20th) century and the latter part of the last, and which has now been consigned to the historical TRASH heap so far as the Seventh-day Adventist Church is concerned.“ {Neil Wilson: EEOC vs PPPA and GC, Civil Case #74-2025 CBR 1975} 

The prophetic announcement of great apostasy and the approach to the Catholic Church was fully fulfilled, as we can clearly see, in the above statement of Neil Wilson, former President of the General Conference and father of Ted Wilson. Today’s “progress” of “understanding” is a return to Babylon and her false teachings! It is no wonder that our church is one of the most active at ecumenical meetings (where the Trinity is being worshiped) that are organised by the Catholic Church! Through His word, God has sent us an opposite message:

  • “And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, COME OUT of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues” {Revelation 18:4}

Adventist book “The Trinity”, by Woodrow Whidden, Jerry Moon and John Reeve:

  • “As one line of reasoning goes, either the pioneers were wrong and the present church is right, or the pioneers were right and the present Seventh-day Adventist Church has apostatised from biblical truth.“ {Woodrow Whidden, Jerry Moon, John Reeve: The Trinity, p. 190} 

This book is used as a reference for the support of the Trinity, happens to have a papal pagan-druid symbol on the title page. It is one of the original symbols of the Druid-Celtic Trinity, which is also a part of the symbols of the Catholic Church! We have thus recognised the papal crown! That symbol in the center of the picture is marked in a light yellow color, as the other side wants to show with derision how deeply it has taken over the blind church. That is why Jesus, in Revelation, said that we needed eye salve. The ancient Celtic religion celebrates demonic “gods” and is among the strongest remaining magical-esoteric cults in all of Europe. Thus, we have gone so far as to worship false “gods”, and defend it as “truth”, reaching the same position that ancient Israel took, as they once worshiped Baal. 

Back then, they claimed that they were worshiping Jehovah, since they had the Old Testament and were called God’s people. They said that these “gods” were only a “practical illustration”, similar to the worship of the calf at Sinai. This is the reason why Jesus Himself says that He (the absolute majority) will spit us out of His mouth. In the above-mentioned book, as with pagan Israel and Dr. Kellogg, the truth is mixed with false teachings. The book uses quotes from EGW and coils on its descriptions of her alleged views, which do not appear in any of her writings. The book contains parts of the truth without any analysis, if it serves the desired purpose according to the principle of the crucifixion, “His blood be on us”. That book should, in fact, serve as a shocking warning to us, of how far we can go when we reject the truth. 

We have reached a direct take on paganism! How to find pictures of druid symbols where we will see that it is one of the so-called Triquetras a symbol of their pagan Trinity? In fact, we can search for these symbols in Google: “druid + triquetras pictures” and browse all the images that have this same sign. This book contains an interesting statement by its authors, which should get us thinking. There is an illustration of a man with his hands raised up towards the sun, which represent the pagan worship of the sun, but this is denied and explained as a picture of prayer and of waiting for the coming of Jesus. This form of symbols on the front pages, from charismatic circles, is not a coincidence. Unfortunately, a large number of our current books and editions contain this type of pagan expression.

  • Study the ninth chapter of Ezekiel. These words WILL be literally fulfilled;” {Ellen White: Letter 106, 1909
  • “We cannot now enter into any new organisation (ecumenism); for this would mean apostasy from the truth.“ {Ellen White: 2SM 390.1} 

Statement in a CATHOLIC JOURNAL:

  • “But the Protestant churches have themselves accepted such dogmas as the Trinity for which there is no such precise authority in the Gospels. {Life Magazine: Oct. 30 1950, p. 51, Graham Greene, The Assumption of Mary} 
  • “The mystery of the Most holy Trinity is the central mystery of the Christian faith and of Christian life. God alone can make it known to us by revealing Himself AS Father, Son and holy Spirit.“ {Vatican Catechism 261} 
  • The formulation ‘one God in three persons’ was not solidly established, certainly not fully assimilated into Christian life and its profession of faith, prior to the end of the 4th century. But it is precisely this formulation that has first claim to the title the Trinitarian dogma. Among the Apostolic Fathers, there had been nothing even remotely approaching such a mentality or perspective.“ {New Catholic Encyclopedia: 1967, Vol. XIV, p. 299} 

Modern Adventists:

  • “Seventh-day Adventists are in harmony with the great creedal statements of Christendom, including the Apostles’ Creed, Nicea (325), and the additional definition of faith concerning the holy Spirit as reached in Constantinople (381).“ {G. W. R.: A Brief Introduction to their Beliefs}  

Pioneer Adventists: 

  • “Only one Being in the universe besides the Father bears the name of God, and i.e. His Son, Jesus Christ.” {James Edson White: The Coming King, p. 27, 1913} 
  • The statements and the arguments of some of our ministers in their effort to prove that the holy Spirit was an individual as are God, the father and Christ, the eternal Son, have perplexed me and sometimes they have made me sad.“ {Letter from (son of EGW) William C. White to H. W. Carr April 30th, 1935

One of the most important pioneers, J. Andrews, described our true faith:

  • “The doctrine of THE TRINITY which was established in the church by the council of Nice, A. D. 325. THIS DOCTRINE DESTROYS THE PERSONALITY OF GOD, and his SON JESUS Christ our Lord. The infamous, measures by which it was forced upon the church which appear upon the pages of ecclesiastical history might well cause every believer in that doctrine to BLUSH.“ {J.N. ANDREWS: RH, March 6, 1855} 

In 1906, Ellen White confirmed the OLD truth from the above quote, and warned the church:

  • A LIAR is one that presents false theories and doctrines. He who DENIES THE PERSONALITY OF GOD and of His SON JESUSChrist is denying God and Christ. “If that which ye have heard from the BEGINNING shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son and in the Father.” If you continue to believe and obey the truths you FIRST EMBRACED regarding the personality of the Father and the Son, you will be joined together with them in love. There will be seen that union for which Christ prayed just before His trial and crucifixion.” {Ellen White: Ms 23, February 8th, 1906
  • “I assured them that the message she bears today is the same that she has borne during the sixty years of her public ministry..” {Ellen White: RH, July 26, 1906 par. 20} 

The “Adventist” Trinity?  

Is the claim that the “Adventist” Trinity does not represent a Catholic blinded God, i.e. the form of the Trinity of other churches, and that ” only the Adventist Trinity is correct” because it “doesn’t” contain the doctrine of the Triune God but only the belief in the Father, the Son, and the holy Spirit is true? This statement contradicts the facts: Point # 2 of the Adventist Church’s Beliefs, entitled “The Trinity,” contains the same faith in the ONE Triune Blind God as the other churches:

  • “There is ONE GOD: the Father, the Son and the holy Spirit, the union of three persons of the same eternity. GOD is immortal, omnipotent, omniscient, present above all and everywhere. HE is infinite and transcends the power of human comprehension, yet known through SELF-discovery. HE is eternally worthy that all creatures respect, worship and serve HIM.”

The terms “ONE” and “TRINITY” have an identical meaning after a deeper analysis, because both terms describe the same ONE fused God of the Trinity in which the false God the holy Spirit is! In the Bible and EGW texts, the expression ” THE ONLY true God” ALWAYS refer to God the Father and NEVER to a one triune “God”:

  • “Let the missionaries of the cross proclaim that there is ONE God, and ONE Mediator between God and man, who is Jesus Christ the Son of the Infinite God. This needs to be proclaimed throughout every church in our land. Christians need to know this, and not put man where God should be, that they may no longer be worshipers of idols, but of the living God. Idolatry exists in our churches.”  {Ellen White: 1888 Materials, p. 886, 1891} 
  • “They shall have an experimental knowledge of the only true God and of Jesus Christ Whom He hath sent.” {Ellen White: SW, Oct. 25,1898} 
  • “And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, Whom thou hast sent.” {John 17:3}

In addition to the “argument” about the diversity of the name “ONE GOD” (which includes three Beings) in the Adventist Church, as opposed to the name “TRIUNE GOD” in many other churches, there are also Adventist Church beliefs 3, 4 and 5 where the Father, The Son, and the holy Spirit are explicitly described as special Beings. But the Babylon churches also have beliefs in the three Beings, regardless of whether or not it is on their list of beliefs because that goes without saying.

The question is not just about the description (by Adventist theologians) of the belief in three Divine Beings, but the teaching that They are PART of that ONE, triune God. Also, the “arguments” about the “duality of nature” (used in the “interpretation” of biblical verses and quotes from Ellen White, which clearly show that the Trinity is not true) are completely meaningless, because one excludes the other! While the Catholic form of the Trinity is “THREE Gods OF ONE God”, the “Adventist” form teaches “ONE God OF THREE Gods“.

Nevertheless, both forms have the same meaning, as they teach that the ONE GOD is a TRINITY, not God the Father as stated in the Bible and the Spirit of Prophecy. On the other hand, the Catholic claim that Jesus is born again every day does not touch on the question of the Trinity at all! Is this perhaps the “deeper understanding of truth” which the Spirit of Prophecy announced us of? Certainly not. This is the fulfillment of the prophecy of our fall and thus the coming back to the Catholic Church. Let’s make a comparison now:

Old belief:

  • “They have one God (the Father) and one Saviour; and one Spirit– the Spirit of Christ”  {Ellen White: 9T, p. 189, 1905

New belief:

Note that it is stated here that this one God consists of the sum of the Father, the Son, and the holy Spirit. The Bible, on the other hand, says something completely different, namely that the title “ONE” God always means only and exclusively God the Father, and the holy Spirit is the Spirit of Jesus and not a third Divine Being:

  • “There is one God: Father, Son, and holy Spirit, a unity of three coeternal Persons. God is immortal, all-powerful, all-knowing, above all, and ever present. He is infinite and beyond human comprehension, yet known through His self-revelation. God, who is love, is forever worthy of worship, adoration, and service by the whole creation.”  {Point 2 of 28} 

Recent belief:

  • God the eternal Spirit was active with the Father and the Son in Creation, incarnation, and redemption. He is as much a person as are the Father and the Son. He inspired the writers of Scripture. He filled Christ’s life with power. He draws and convicts human Beings; and those who respond He renews and transforms into the image of God. Sent by the Father and the Son to be always with His children, He extends spiritual gifts to the church, empowers it to bear witness to Christ, and in harmony with the Scriptures leads it into all truth.“ {SDA: Point 5 on the list of beliefs} 

Catholic belief:

  • “The mystery of the Most holy Trinity is the central mystery of the Christian faith and of Christian life. God alone can make it known to us by revealing Himself AS Father, Son and holy Spirit.“ {Vatican Catechism 261} 
  • “And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.“ {Revelation 17:5}

Whose doctrine is officially now in the church? The Catholic doctrine!
