Seventh-day Adventists are promoting Ellen White’s writings in a new campaign for 2012. Called “The Great Controversy Countdown,” the campaign encourages every SDA church to study White’s The Great Controversy, which was supposedly delivered to her by vision. The SDA General Conference says: “It is our vision that within the next twelve months, every Seventh-day Adventist will be studying this timely message, and will be inspired to share it with their friends and neighbors.” Ellen White, an alleged prophetess, founded Seventh-day Adventism together with her husband. She called The Great Controversy “the last message of warning to the world.” Not only did she assume a position of teaching and leadership in disobedience to God’s Word, she taught a slew of heresies. These include soul-sleep, annihilation, sabbath-keeping, Sunday-worship as the sign of the antichrist, Lucifer the sin bearer, and Investigative Judgment. She also preached a gospel of grace plus law which she redefined as “grace alone.” When I was a young Christian I took three of the SDA correspondence courses and studied many of their books. Later I documented their errors in Avoiding the Snare of Seventh-day Adventism, which is available from Way of Life Literature in print and eBook editions.
