This question was asked and answered in the Review and Sabbath Herald
Question to the Editor: Will you please favor me with those
Scriptures which plainly say that Christ is a created being?
Answer: You are mistaken in supposing that S.D. Adventists
teach that Christ was ever created. They believe, on the contrary,
that he was "begotten" of the Father, and that he can properly
be called God and worshiped as such. They believe also that the worlds
and everything which is, was created by Christ in conjunction with
the Father. They believe, HOWEVER, that somewhere in the eternal ages
of the past there was a point at which CHRIST CAME INTO EXISTENCE.
They think that it is necessary that GOD SHOULD HAVE ANTEDATED CHRIST
IN HIS BEING, in order that Christ could have been begotten of Him,
and sustain to him the relationship of son. They hold to the distinct
personality of the Father and Son rejecting as absurd that feature
of Trinitarianism which insists that God and Christ and the Holy Spirit
are three persons and yet one person.
S.D. Adventists hold that God and Christ are one in the sense that
Christ prayed that his disciples might be one i.e. one in spirit,
purpose and labor. See Fundamental Principles of S.D. Adventists,

The only three Editors of the Adventist Review between 1851 and 1897
were Ellen White's husband, Uriah Smith and J.N. Andrews. Andrews only
served one year while White and Smith traded back and forth until James
White's death in August 8, 1881.
