Ellen White's Teaching Denial of Christ's Omnipresence Denial of the Incorporeality of God Conclusion Does the Seventh-day Adventist Church, and their prophetess Ellen G.
White, teach the Biblical, orthodox doctrine of the Trinity?
First, here is a good description of the Christian definition of the Trinity: "In Christianity, the doctrine of the Trinity states that God is one being who exists, simultaneously and eternally, as a mutual indwelling of three persons: the Father, the Son (incarnate as Jesus of Nazareth), and the Holy Spirit.
At first glance, the Fundamental Belief statement may appear to at least be compatible with orthodoxy.
Interestingly, in 1980 they deleted their previous (1931) wording about Jesus, where they had said that he was "of the same nature and essence as the Eternal Father." (Although, even that was deceptively stated--even back then they didn't mean the same thing orthodox Christianity means, that God is one Being!
) Also, since they define "God" as a group of three, then they are actually lying in this Fundamental Belief statement when they say that they believe that "God" is "ever present," considering the fact that they deny that Jesus Christ is omnipresent (click here to jump down to the section "Denial of Christ's Omnipresence").
In other words, there is only one living Being that is God. In the early days of Seventh-day Adventism, they (including their prophetess Ellen G.
As the Nicene Creed affirms, Jesus Christ is "of one Being with the Father." God is one spirit, not three spirits. White) taught some form of Arianism--denying the eternality of Jesus Christ, denying the personality of the Holy Spirit, and teaching bitheism, or two gods: the eternal Father and the non-eternal Son.
SDA scholars admit that Adventism has a different "Trinity" doctrine than orthodox Christianity!
