    Ellen G. White and the Bible

    Ellen White often had to meet the suggestions of those who by their attitude toward the inspired message in the Bible and in her writings undercut the effectiveness of God’s messages to His people. Concerning the Bible she declared:EGWW 138.2

    I take the Bible just as it is, as the Inspired Word. I believe its utterances in an entire Bible.—Selected Messages 1:17.EGWW 138.3

    Brethren, cling to your Bible, as it reads, and stop your criticisms in regard to its validity, and obey the Word, and not one of you will be lost.—Selected Messages 1:18.EGWW 138.4

    Although she recognized that there were certain problems and she valued highly the “revised versions,” Ellen White saw no grounds for probing studies or intricate investigations to ascertain the “true” meaning of the Word of God as apart from its apparent meaning. She wrote:EGWW 138.5

    The Lord has preserved this Holy Book by His own miraculous power in its present shape—a chart or guidebook to the human family to show them the way to heaven.—Selected Messages 1:15.EGWW 138.6

    We thank God that the Bible is prepared for the poor man as well as for the learned man. It is fitted for all ages and all classes.—Selected Messages 1:18.EGWW 138.7

    Simplicity and plain utterance are comprehended by the illiterate, by the peasant, and the child as well as by the full-grown man or the giant in intellect.—Ibid.EGWW 138.8

    She saw “human reasoning and the imaginings of the human heart” as “undermining the inspiration of the Word of God, and that which should be received as granted” “surrounded with a cloud of mysticism. Nothing stands out in clear and distinct lines, upon rock bottom.” Selected Messages 1:15.EGWW 139.1
