Is the Bible Sufficient?

Mrs. White claims her testimonies were given because of the fact that Seventh-day Adventists were ignorant of the Bible:

"If you had made God's word your study, with a desire to reach the Bible standard and attain to Christian perfection, you would not have needed the 'Testimonies'." (Testimonies, Volume 5, p.605).

In the same paragraph she places her writings on the same par with the writings of Holy Scripture:

"I took the precious Bible and surrounded it with the several Testimonies for the Church, given for the people of God. Here, said I, the cases of nearly all are met. God has been pleased to give you line upon line and precept upon precept." (Testimonies, Volume 5, p.605).

Just as the Mormons add the Book of Mormon to the Scriptures, Mrs. White describes in visual terms how she places her 'Testimonies' side-by-side with the Holy Word of God.

Let us compare the two:

Holy Word of God is:

Ellen White's Writings are:

Infallible (no mistakes)

Fallible (although she claimed inspiration)

A perfect revelation of God's will
(2 Timothy 3:16,17)

An imperfect revelation containing gross errors

Written by men inspired "by the Holy Ghost"
(2 Peter 2:21)

Up to 90% of her works were plagiarized from non-Adventist Christian authors

A perfect harmony throughout

Contains sharply contradictory testimonies

Written by almost 40 authors over thousands of years

Written by one author over 60 years

Prophecies never failed . Prophets never had to go back and delete out parts of their writings when they did not come to pass.

Contains glaring false prophecies . Mrs. White had to delete out portions of her visions regarding the shut door of salvation.
