Ellen G. White on the Persons of God


EGW on God (the Father)

  • God is spirit; yet He is a personal being, for man was made in His image. {Ed. 132}

Quotes from EGW's sons

  • James Edson White (1849 - 1928). "Only one being in the universe besides the Father bears the name of God, and that is His Son, Jesus Christ." {J. E. White, The Coming King, p. 27, published by The Review and Herald Publishing Association in 1905}
  • William Clarence White (1854 - 1937). "The statements and the arguments of some of our ministers, in the effort to prove that the Holy Spirit is an individual as are God the Father and Christ, the eternal Son, have perplexed me, and sometimes they have made me sad. One popular teacher said 'We may regard Him, as the fellow who is down here running things.' {Letter, W. C. White to H. W. Carr, April 30, 1935}
  • Ibid., “There are many Scriptures which speak of the Father and the Son and the absence of Scripture making similar reference to the united work of the Father and the Holy Spirit or of Christ and the Holy Spirit, has led me to believe that the spirit without individuality was the representative of the Father and the Son throughout the universe, and it was through the Holy Spirit that they dwell in our hearts and make us one with the Father and with the Son.” (W. C. White to H. W. Carr, letter, April 30th 1935)

  • The Cornerstone of Adventism. Presented by Adrian Ebens. In 1858 Ellen White published that God had laid a solid immovable platform of truth in the Advent movement and that God was the Master builder. See 1SG 169 or Early Writings p. 258. Since Jesus is the Truth and and no other foundation can be laid than Him (1 Cor 3:11) and He is the cornerstone of God's Church then how could the Adventist Church build a solid immovable platform when according to our church today, they believed the so called "heretical doctrine of Semi-arianism?" If our pioneers were wrong about the person of the Son of God, then the cornerstone of Adventism was not laid correctly. When God is the master builder and lays a cornerstone would he allow that stone to be laid wrongly? How could Ellen White be shown by God that the system of teaching held by Adventists were "solid" and immovable" if the central piece of the foundation was completely wrong?
  • Those who seek to remove the old landmarks are not holding fast; they are not remembering how they have received and heard. Those who try to bring in theories that would remove the pillars of our faith concerning the sanctuary or concerning the personality of God or of Christ are working as blind men. They are seeking to bring in uncertainties and to set the people of God adrift without an anchor. --Manuscript Release 760, pp. 9, 10. {YRP 235.4}
