Daniel 8:14 A contextual study by Dale Ratzlaff of the text which is “the central pillar of Adventism.”

Without the Central Pillar, “There is no reason for us to exist…We are simply wrong” In this study Dale Ratzlaff summarizes the Adventist historic teaching of 1844, the investigative judgment, and the cleansing of the heavenly sanctuary. You will be amazed at some of the statements Ellen G. White, who the Adventist church still says, “speaks with prophetic authority” made on these subjects!

“Shut Door of Mercy”–New Discoveries, Dale Ratzlaff
This article is taken from Chapter 7 of Cultic Doctrine but includes four additional pages of newly discovered statements from Ellen White showing that she had several “visions from God” showing beyond the shadow of a doubt that she taught the shut door of mercy until nearly 1851 even though the church has tried either to deny it or cover it up. Well, here it is for all to see and draw their own conclusion.

The Sanctuary Doctrine—Asset or Liability? The late Dr. Raymond Cottrell spent more time studying Daniel 8:14, the Investigative Judgment and 1844 than any other person. Here is the last paper he wrote on the subject before his death.

1919 Bible Conference This is perhaps the most shocking of all Adventist documents because it proves that top SDA leaders knew that Ellen White was a fraud no later than 1919. They discussed whether to cover-up the fact that she was a fraud, or to tell the Church the truth about her at that time. One by one, almost every participant in that highly secret meeting declares his or her conviction that her claims of direct, divine inspiration are fraudulent.  They discuss her extensive plagiarism, and they specifically discuss how they will keep the truth about Ellen White from the theology students at the seminary if they choose to continue the cover-up. The series of meetings ended without any decision on their part, so the cover-up continued as it has for decades until this very day.  Shocking reading for any Seventh-day Adventist!  Flabbergasting reading for any Evangelical Christian who will be dumbfounded by the twisted thinking of so-called Christians who could conclude that they could lie for God because the Church organization was more important that truth itself!

Daniel Hankor, (Ph.D.) Bible Translator Consultant, January 14, Addia Abeba, Ethiopia. Here is a 9 page article Dr. Hankor wrote that is helping the 12,000 Adventist members who have left 87 SDA churches in Ethiopia.

The Shut-door and the Sanctuary: Historical and Theological Problem, by Wes Ringer. Adventists would like to forget that Ellen White taught a shut-door of mercy. However, for those willing to look at the evidence, the conclusion is clear.

Does the Blood of the OT Sacrifice, Cleanse, Defile or Transport Sin? by Tim Ward. This is a critical question for Adventists. If blood does not defile or transport sin, then the whole scheme of Adventism’s sanctuary theology falls. Truth can stand the test of investigation; why not read this and make up your own mind.
