Helping Adventists find their roots thru discernment of truth and error
This is an intro page to the book Evangelism which is a compilation from the writings of Sister Ellen White. Found under the heading, "The Issues" you will find a separate page on Leroy Froom. It is
very revealing that there was an agenda involved in changing the church's core belief system and history. That agenda was to portray Sister White as a full fledged trinitarian by carefully selecting quotes from her writings, narrowly cropping them to make them appear different than their real context and meaning. Roy Allan Anderson and Louise Kleuser along with Froom under the encouragement of Elder Branson were the culprits. Leroy Froom was a historian that re-wrote our church history and carried it almost single handedly into it's wrongful direction for 50 years.
Under the heading of Evangelism on this website, you may use the drop down menu to view fivepopular and distorted quotes used by the compilation of Froom and company. We have attempted to share light on the subject matter in it's more full context. These pages include the titles:
- Is the Holy Spirit a Person?
- Personality of the Holy Spirit
- Eternal Heavenly Dignitaries
- In Cooperation with the Three Highest Powers
- The Heavenly Trio
- The Power of God in the Third Person
Back in the days of Dr. Kellogg at the turn of the 20th century, Sister White had to battle the usage of her writings taken from their original context for an agenda of another writer. Dr. Kellogg quoted her and then added his writings with his intepretation and beliefs along side them. This was done to further creditbility to his book and whatever else he was peddling.
Well, in this COMPILATION of her writings in the book Evangelism, the same tactic has been used. Sadly thou, Sister White was not around to correct them and take them to task like she was able to do with Dr. Kellogg. Here is a quote to think about in regards to this:
“I have some things to say to our teachers in reference to the new book, “The Living Temple.” Be careful how you sustain the sentiments of this book regarding the personality of God. As the Lord represents matters to me, these sentiments do not bear the endorsement of God. They are a snare that the enemy has prepared for these last days. I thought that this would surely be discerned, and that it would not be necessary for me to say anything about it. But since the claim has been made that the teachings of this book can be sustained by statements from my writings, I am compelled to speak in denial of this claim. There may be in this book expressions and sentiments that are in harmony with my writings. And there may be in my writings many statements which, when taken from their connection, and interpreted according to the mind of the writer of “The Living Temple,” would seem to be in harmony with the teachings of this book. This may give apparent support to the assertion that the sentiments in “The Living Temple” are in harmony with my writings. But God forbid that this opinion should prevail.”
- Ellen White, Review & Herald October 22, 1903, par. 1
